PRESS RELEASE



Jan. 5, 2015 — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announced the expansion of the FreeSync ecosystem as technology partners including BenQ, LG Electronics, Nixeus, Samsung, and Viewsonic showcased their upcoming commercially available FreeSync-enabled displays at the 2015 International CES.

The unveiling of new FreeSync-enabled displays demonstrates the industry’s commitment to open standards-based technology that enables improved gaming by synchronising dynamic refresh rates of the displays to the frame rate of AMD Radeon™ R-Series graphics cards and current generation APUs. The result greatly reduces input latency and helps reduce or eliminate visual defects during gaming and video playback. The new displays range in size between 24” to 34”, supporting refresh rates of 30 to 144 Hz, and resolutions of 1080p up to Ultra HD, offering a variety of options for every gamer’s needs and at virtually every price point.

“The broad adoption of FreeSync technology from our partners shows how the industry strongly values the same open ecosystem and quality that AMD strives for,” said Roy Taylor, corporate vice president, ISV/IHV Partner Group, AMD. “Gamers who use FreeSync technology with AMD Radeon™ R-Series graphics and AMD latest generation of APUs can rest assured that they’re enjoying the best possible experience.”

Monitors from BenQ, LG Electronics, Nixeus, and Samsung are on display at AMD’s booth, San Polo rooms 3402 – 3404 at The Venetian at CES Tech West. Displays are expected to be available in market starting this month with additional models set to launch in early 2015.
