Inside Xbox, the program which started last week had made a huge announcement. Both Xbox One S and Xbox One X will support variable refresh rate on AMD Radeon FreeSync displays. If you are not sure what it means, then here is the deal. Games running in between 0-50fps range feel like they are running at 60fps, and it gets even better with more FPS.
Announced by AMD’s Antal Tungler shared that Freesync technology helps get rid of tearing and stuttering while gaming, enabling the display and Xbox One to work together to create a smooth and seamless gaming experience. Freesync allows for a supported TV or monitor to synchronize its refresh rate with your console. It also increases the life of your TV by using dynamic fresh rates
However, OEMs will have to support this, by releasing a fimware update. Xbox One is also planning to begin supporting Auto Low Latency Mode on supported TVs later in 2018, including select models from Samsung. Auto Low Latency Mode will recognize when a game is being played and automatically switch your TV to a low-latency mode.
So when you are watching streaming videos, it will act differently, and switch back to performance mode when it comes to gaming.
