    I'm happy that Wayland will get free sync support. That feature is quite important, but I didn't switch back to X11 just for this.

      HDMI is still the way to go if you want to hook up your (HT)PC to a TV.

          I use my 65", VRR Samsung for my Xbox One X and VRR is great. I really wish my PC would do VRR too.

          It'd also be great if turning on HDR in Windows 10 didn't make it look washed out. Never understood how MS could make HDR have less color

            Is there any update regarding this? It's been over a year and there is still no FreeSync possible for HDMI.

            I have my small HTPC with Ryzen 2400G with Vega graphics that support FreeSync. It has both DP and HDMI outputs, but the TV has only HDMI slots.. So I'm asking that could I just use a DP --> HDMI cable and be able to use the FreeSync feature of the amdgpu driver (since it is DP only at the moment)?
