AMD FreeSync monitors now starts at $140
Over the past three years, the AMD Radeon FreeSync technology has become the industry’s most widely adopted solution for fluid, artifact-free gaming. With 353 compatible displays on the market from 20+ AMD partners – twice as many than the often-costlier competing technology.
With so many compatible displays to choose from, it can be hard to decide which is right for you. One of the myths around new gaming displays is that they’re expensive, but they don’t have to be. FreeSync-capable displays can be found as low as $140 USD on Amazon.
To help gamers determine which display makes sense for their needs, AMD has put together a helpful roundup below – this is but a small sample of monitors that could go well with GPUs, many other great monitors out there.

Seeing is believing. As you can’t explain the vibrancy of HDR with FreeSync 2 to someone who hasn’t experienced it for themselves, AMD has created the following video that brings this contrast to life.
AMD also asked gamers at PAX East about their experiences playing on a FreeSync-capable monitor, which you can watch here. As the gaming market continues to grow, the demand for technologies and graphics performance providing competitive gamers an edge grows with it.
In less than three weeks, TVs will join the ranks of the FreeSync ecosystem and AMD is planning to make a lot of noise around it.
