Radeon + FreeSync Combo: Worth It?
This is where AMD has a win: FreeSync gaming monitors being so much cheaper than their G-Sync counterparts.
Samsung's 34-inch CF791, for example, features a 3440x1440 native resolution, Quantum Dot technology, 100Hz refresh rate and FreeSync support. They're listed on Amazon right now for $831, while the Acer Predator X34 (same res/refresh) is $1079. Quite the difference.
The 27-inch high-end gaming monitors with a native 2560x1440 resolution and huge 144Hz refresh rate start at $547 for the Acer XF270HU (FreeSync) while the Acer Predator XB271HU (G-Sync) is $699.
4K gamers will see a massive difference in prices between FreeSync and G-Sync displays, with the ASUS MG28UQ (FreeSync) display costing just $449, while the ASUS ROG Swift PG27AQ (G-Sync) is a massive $879. If you change it out for the Acer Predator XB281HK, we're still looking at $599 for G-Sync @ 4K.
