    Phoronix: AMD's FreeSync Linux Code Continues To Be Improved Upon For Low Frame-Rate Scenarios

    Since the FreeSync AMDGPU kernel driver support was introduced earlier this year in the Linux 5.0 kernel, it's continued to be improved upon and another round of updated patches were posted today aiming to help the variable rate refresh behavior in low frame-rate scenarios...

      FreeSync already works quite well with Linux 5.0.x and Mesa 19.0.x for me. Looking forward to Vulkan support and the improvements in the current cycle.

        It's really nice seeing freesync working so well on Linux. I'm just waiting for it to work with 2 monitors. I've been looking for freesync monitor for a while, but I'm not ready to give up my dual monitor setup for this.

          Anyone know how well this works with PRIME with Intel? Or do we need to wait until Intel implements Freesync and or extra stuff in between the two.

            I tried to find out what the Intel situation is, and I ran into news like this:

            https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...VRR-Linux-Bits

            It seems it's not supported right now, and everything I can find makes it sound like it won't be supported on existing GPUs, it will only work on future GPUs.

            Then about PRIME, because the display is connected to the Intel GPU and not the AMD GPU, I would then assume that variable-rate-refresh won't work.

                Just to be clear, do you want to say "I think there are no plans", or do you mean "I know there are no plans"? If it's "I know", can you remember where you have seen this, can you maybe link to a comment from a developer somewhere?

                    I thought it was massively used everywhere, here in South America, only the tech savvy knows what a display port is
