Xbox One update brings AMD Freesync support, automatic TV game mode switching

Xbox One X and Xbox One S will soon support AMD FreeSync displays

Freesync-compatible displays are able to sync their refresh rates directly with the Xbox One, helping to eliminate issues like tearing and stuttering, and letting the games run as smooth as possible. There was a massive amount of news in this first installment, but two Xbox-specific update related items are worthy of highlighting. This Mixer controller experience is now only available for testing on the Xbox Insider Alpha ring. According to Microsoft, Xbox gamers will be able to enjoy AMD's FreeSync 2 variable-refresh-rate (VRR) tech when the update hits later this spring. However outside of the HDMI consortium reiterating this idea - and while Microsoft has tip-toed a fine line since they can't claim to be compliant with an HDMI specification before it's finalized - we hadn't heard anything further on the subject until now.

In this regard, some 2018 TV with the QLED technologies that Samsung has announced during the CES 2018 will also support the VRR (variable refresh rate), which may be particularly interesting for console players.

The implementation that is rolling out is FreeSync 2.

In terms of upcoming Xbox support, details were sparse; only FreeSync-over-HDMI is supported, and the FreeSync 2 HDR features were confirmed to be supported.

"FreeSync is in an excellent position in the market". FreeSync and G-Sync have been widely used on PC gaming systems and monitors, so adding 1440p resolution and FreeSync will bring more appeal to Xbox owners who want to use their consoles with a gaming display.

Microsoft dropped some big news during the season premiere of its "Xbox Inside" show, which it streamed online over the weekend.

Meanwhile the fact that the Xbox One S is included in all of this was a small surprise in and of itself.

With a supported TV, the mode will automatically switch to a low-latency mode at the start of your game.
