      What you wanted to say was, it adds FreeSync support. Honestly F. VRR and g-sync compatible nonsense.

        FreeSync is supported exclusively via DisplayPort. HDMI VRR is HDMI VRR.

          VRR is the name of the HDMI standard (protocol?). Just like Adaptative Sync is for DisplayPort. Freesync is AMD's brand.

          It's a bit like HDMI CEC vs T-Link (ITT) HDAVI Control, EZ-Sync, VIERA Link (Panasonic) EasyLink (Philips) NetCommand for HDMI (Mitsubishi)...

            Nevertheless, I would like to have HDMI VRR on my RX580.
