Introduction and Specifications
Though there were some technologies already available within the existing embedded DisplayPort specifications to support adaptive refresh rates, AMD still had to dedicate the resources necessary to enable FreeSync with its GPUs. AMD also had to help develop the software and hooks necessary for display manufacturers to enable FreeSync in their monitor firmware, which is what AMD has been up to since the initial FreeSync announcements were made.
But now AMD is ready to release its first FreeSync capable set of drivers, and we’ve had the chance to play with them for a little while using a sleek, ultra-widescreen display from LG. The LG 34UM67 features an IPS panel with a native resolution of 2560x1080 and a max refresh rate of 75Hz. The monitor’s full list of specifications are below, but we’ll dig into it—and AMD FreeSync—a little deeper on the pages ahead...
In terms of features, the LG 34UM67 has a little something for everyone—an IPS panel with wide viewing angles, built in speakers, multiple display inputs, thin bezels, and easy to use controls. Of course, there’s also support for FreeSync, which is what you gamers are probably most interested in. More on that in a just a bit.
