We've been enjoying NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology for a while now, but AMD is about to join them with their own spin on the refresh rate magic; FreeSync. At the Future of Compute Event, AMD announced it had partnered up with Samsung on a slew of FreeSync-powered displays, which will hit the market in March 2015.

Samsung will release the UD590 in both 23.6-inch and 28-inch models, while there'll be a UE850 available in 23.6-inch, 27-inch and 31.5-inch models. Eventually, FreeSync will spill over onto Samsung's Ultra HD range of monitors, too. Vice President of Samsung Electronics Southeast Asia Headquarters, Joe Chan, said: "We are very pleased to adopt AMD FreeSync technology to our 2015 Samsung Electronics Visual Display division's UHD monitor roadmap, which fully supports open standards. With this technology, we believe users including gamers will be able to enjoy their videos and games to be played with smoother frame display without stuttering or tearing on their monitors".
