I'm an absolutely fan of NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology, but not many people have had the pleasure of using AMD's FreeSync technology at home, a technology that is meant to be virtually identical to that of NVIDIA's. Well, the first FreeSync-powered monitor is now available on Overclockers.co.uk.

The monitor we're talking about is the Iiyama ProLite B2888UHSU-B1, which is a 28-inch 4K monitor with AMD's FreeSync technology baked into it. This monitor is using an identical panel to the Acer XB280HK, which is powered by NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology and also runs a 3840x2160 resolution. The big difference? Price. The AMD FreeSync option is around $600, while the Acer XB280HK is currently $1029 on Amazon.

Acer's XB280HK on Overclockers.co.uk sells for the equivalent of $770 USD, compared to the $600 USD of the FreeSync option, so you can see the appeal of AMD's technology here.
