AMD FreeSync improve game lag.

In this guide, we will be taking a look at how you can enable AMD FreeSync in Windows. AMD FreeSync can help stop screen tearing and give low latency, helping improve the way Windows and your games look and feel. So enabling FreeSync is a must if you have an AMD graphics card and your monitor supports it.

AMD FreeSync is an option that can be turned on within the AMD Software: Adrenaline Edition control panel. And once enabled you should notice a difference in the feel and look of your display.

There are three different types of Free Sync and these are:

  • AMD FreeSync
  • AMD FreeSync Premium
  • AMD FreeSync Premium Pro

So depending on what monitor you have will depend on what will be enabled. And of course, Premium Pro offers more features.

AMD FreeSync Requirements

There are requirements to be able to enable AMD FreeSync in Windows, if you don’t meet these requirements then the AMD FreeSync option will be missing. I have listed the requirements below:

  • Graphics: Supported AMD Radeon or AMD A-Series APU
  • Driver: Latest driver installed
  • Monitor: FreeSync compatible monitor connected via DisplayPort v1.2 or higher

As you know FreeSync is a great way to enhance your gameplay experience by helping remove screen tearing and giving low latency. So when you buy a new monitor ensure it has AMD FreeSync support otherwise the FreeSync option will be missing in the control panel.
