    Damn I was hoping the Asus I bought a couple months back would be the one Richard was talking about last month.

    Re: Is an Iiyama made AMD FreeSync monitor already available in UK?

    Guys, I need some clarification with regards to this freesync tech. Will the freesync monitors come with a chip embedded in the circuit board like G-sync monitors?. OR is Freesync more like a BIOS update for the AMD gpu's (and maybe firmware update for the monitor)?. I know that Freesync will be useable only by display port connection. So if I have a monitor (regardless if 60Hz, 120Hz and 144Hz)that has DP connection, could I download the AMD Freesync software and make my monitor Freesync capable?. BTW, I have a 144Hz monitor. Thanks for any advice.

    You need to meet a number of requirements first - the monitor needs to be able to support (and very quickly switch between) a variable range of refresh rates, and you need to have a latest generation AMD card (R290, 285 etc. NOT the older R280X, 270 etc.) Then your monitor maker needs to test that they can implement Freesync and maybe produce a firmware upgrade IF they can - chances are some will, while others will just market new monitors without releasing firmware for older ones.
