Enhanced Sync - Added support for Vulkan, GCN products and Multi-GPU
Enhanced Sync was introduced with Radeon Software 17.7.2, quickly becoming one of Radeon's most popular Radeon Software features by offering a "best of both worlds" scenario that offers the low latency of V-Sync Off gaming while almost eliminating Screen tearing like V-Sync.
With Adrenalin, AMD has now added support for this innovative feature to all GCN-based Radeon GPUs, as well as support for games that use the Vulkan API. This will allow this feature to be utilized by a larger number of Radeon users over a larger number of games, making this one of the most noteworthy upgrades that are included in Adrenalin for users of older Radeon hardware.
Enhanced sync runs at an unlocked frame framerate and effectively sits between VSync and FreeSync, working to minimise latency and decrease stuttering. This technology will not offer an experience that is as good as FreeSync, but it is a marked improvement when looking at the user's gameplay experience.
Beyond that Enhanced Sync will work with FreeSync when your display is working outside of its FreeSync range, allowing even FreeSync users to benefit from this technology. Please watch the video below to see AMD's own description of Enhanced Sync.
