    I wonder where the extra cost for freesync is coming from? From my limited understanding (as someone wants a freesync monitor and has done a bit of reading up on it) it something standard off the shelf monitor chips support as its just an improvement of an existing technology to reduce refresh rates on laptops to save power. If so I wonder who is charging the premium - the chip makers or iiyama?

    Are these both new monitors?

    You can get a freesync monitor for under £100 (http://www.ebuyer.com/720608-aoc-g22...itor-g2260vwq6), so i can't see component cost as an issue here. It would make more sense if there was a £10 discount on an old -b1 model as it lacks the freesync of the update.

    Either that or they are playing with pricing, and hence us.

    The specs say 55 to 75 Hz, is that the fixed frequencies it will lock to?

    Tarinder, if you hover over the Freesync on-off toggle in Radeon Settings -> Display it should tell you the range reported by the monitor (mine says 40 to 144). It is really hard to tell from the specs on low end monitors what the Freesync range is, could you include that please? I assume this will go up to 75Hz, but that means it would need to go down to 75/2.5 = 30 Hz for Low Framerate Compensation to work.

    No G-Sync, no Me-Sync! (I just don't like AMD GPUs)

    I thought Adaptive Sync was meant to be part of the Display Port specification, so no extra cost should be incurred?
