Some changes on the FreeSync front from AMD. Over at CES 2020, the company announced there are now three tiers: the old FreeSync, the new FreeSync Premium, and FreeSync Premium Pro (previously known as FreeSync 2 HDR). There's a comparison table below but FreeSync Premium is basically the same as FreeSync Premium Pro but with HDR capabilities.
The AMD FreeSyncTM Premium tier enhances the baseline FreeSync tier with additional benefits, such as the following two key elements that that we believe are necessary for a high performance gaming experience:

  • At least 120 Hz refresh rate at minimum FHD resolution
  • Low framerate compensation (LFC)

    Competitive gamers know that every frame matters. LFC helps ensure that when the framerate of a game is running below the minimum supported refresh rate of a display, the frames are displayed multiple times so that you can remain in the supported refresh rate of the display and maintain smooth gameplay.
