VESA announces Adaptive-Sync will be included with DisplayPort 1.2a

Adaptive refresh rates will soon be here thanks to DisplayPort 1.2a, which will include Adaptive-Sync technology

VESA has just announced that the upcoming DisplayPort 1.2a standard would include a component of AMD's FreeSync technology, that is known as Adaptive-Sync. Adaptive-Sync allows the monitor to refresh as many times as the GPU can handle - improving frame rates, and making your gamers and movies seem much smoother.

Adaptive-Sync is also something that is not totally new, as it has been part of VESA's embedded DisplayPort, or eDP, since 2009. This is actually quite a big point, as it means that Adaptive-Sync is already baked into countless components for displays that use eDP for internal signalling. Thanks to VESA offering its members to use Adaptive-Sync technology for free without a license fee, we will see many of the big players in the display business taking it up.


We should hopefully hear more about Adaptive-Sync in the lead up, or at Computex, which kicks off early next month.
