CES 2015 - When AMD first began talking about FreeSync, NVIDIA were already out in the wild with a couple of G-SYNC monitors. But the one big difference between AMD's FreeSync and NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology is that AMD's technology is free for manufacturers to use, without licensing fees. This means we should see around $100-$200 cheaper monitors based on FreeSync technology, which is great news for Radeon gamers, and gamers in general.

Lastly, something gorgeous: three 4K monitors for a total of 12K. This wasn't FreeSync, but it was still great to see AMD pushing their Eyefinity technology with 12K. Amazing.

We had a chat with Robert Hallock and Richard Huddy, who walked us through the slew of FreeSync-powered monitors, providing us witih details on what to expect for 2015. AMD hope to have 10+ FreeSync monitors in the wild this year, with a handful of them launching in the next couple of months. We can expect 1080p, 1440p, 4K and ultra-wide monitors, which is a huge step up from the 1080p, 1440p and 4K that NVIDIA offers with their various displays from Acer and ASUS.
