    Phoronix: AMD FreeSync Support On Linux?

    With this month's release of the Catalyst 15.3 Beta for Windows, FreeSync Technology support was added. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like any Linux support is imminent...

    This would suck. I hope it does arrive with the AMDGPU upgrade (whenever THAT arrives).

    Also, damn, AMD! Talk about exaggerating the tearing effect in that image!

      No stuttering. No tearing. No Linux.

          They added support for it in 340.17 beta: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/751890

            Should've mentioned that G-Sync is working perfectly fine under Linux by simply checking a box in the NVIDIA driver settings.

              GSync seams to work for most Linux games, here a test report :

                I hope AMD realizes they will lose any potential foothold on Linux gaming at this rate. That may become a significant problem once SteamOS is finally stable and ready for the masses. I'm sure Nvidia isn't worried at all.

                I have no reason to feel impressed by AMD so far as a potential customer.

                  Agreed... though, given that proof-of-concept has been made for exploiting Intel Management Engine and AMD is starting with APUs in their plans to add a TrustZone ARM core to their chips, I'll probably stay with AMD CPUs next time I update my computer. (Though I may end up having to grab an older model by the time I do upgrade)

                    Anyone compared freesync or gsync with simply using compton to remove tearing?
