    Phoronix: AMD Linux Improvements Pending Around FreeSync Low Frame Rate Compensation

    Sadly too late for the upcoming Linux 5.4 merge window, but for Linux 5.5 it looks like there will be a FreeSync improvement around low-frame-rate compensation...

    it wasn't common on consumer electronics because it was not intended to be used there. if you are buying blueray player, it must have hdmi output. if you are buying videocard, it must have displayport output. it can have other outputs too (like s-video or now hdmi), but displayport is a must, it's the only contemporary computer video connector

    maybe you have everything which uses vga connector, is it a reason to prefer it?

    Why not? I prefer HDMI because everything I own uses it.

    A lot of people play their video games, console/computer, on a large screen television and new televisions are starting to support all the same stuff that PC monitors are known for supporting. It's just retarded for AMD to not extend VRR support to HDMI because HDMI VRR TVs are becoming more and more a thing everyday.

    Not to mention that when one goes to buy a GPU, it doesn't say Freesync for DisplayPort only, it says Radeon™ FreeSync Technology with no asterisk that lists the limitations. One would assume, based on what is on the amd.com product feature-lists state, that Freesync would work with the stuff I just copy/pasted from my 580s spec page:

    Supported Rendering Format:
    HDMI™ 4K Support
    Yes

    4K H264 Decode
    Yes

    4K H264 Encode
    Yes

    H265/HEVC Decode
    Yes

    H265/HEVC Encode
    Yes

    Connectivity: DisplayPort
    1.4 HDR

    Dual Link DVI
    No

    HDMI™
    4K60 Support

    VGA
    No

    bridgman I though they were gonna do something about that. I need a job if y'all need someone who can do competent technical write-ups

    You are right on the different members in the standardization bodies, but the HDMI connector is used even more widely as DP in the monitor space according to the numbers of this german price listing site: https://geizhals.de/?cat=monlcd19wide (just look at the stats for "Grafikanschlüsse" = display connectivity = 1576 for HDMI vs. 1269 with DisplayPort).

    Are these facts enough to persuade you?

    only windows hardware comes with panels and similar shitware. ask your distro why it doesn't have hardware-independent panel to suit you
