FreeSync Will Hit HDMI Starting Early 2016
Right now, FreeSync is locked to DisplayPort, and this cuts off a significant chunk of the market, a market where HDMI is still thriving. RTG talked about FreeSync technology over HDMI, saying that "HDMI is everywhere" - and it's true.
Pushing FreeSync technology onto HDMI will see the company enabling a much wider selection of affordable mainstream price points, with AMD FreeSync for "A+A notebooks with HDMI." All of this will kick into high gear in Q1 2016, so we're not far away from FreeSync-capable HDMI displays.
I did ask a specific question to one of the engineers behind FreeSync, where I asked "if we would see FreeSync on TVs in the future, now that AMD is putting FreeSync technology into HDMI, it seems logical." The engineer wouldn't directly answer my question, but the look on his face said it all. So, I expect to see a rather large announcement from AMD soon regarding FreeSync-powered TVs.
It only makes sense, right? AMD has hardware in the current-gen consoles, and rumor has it that they are powering the next-gen consoles, too. The next-gen consoles will be much faster than the current generation, have more support for new technologies, and hopefully we'll see FreeSync being a big push for this on TVs. That on its own has me excited for the future consoles.
Here we have a list of some of the upcoming displays that will feature FreeSync technology over HDMI.
