Xbox One getting AMD FreeSync support, low latency mode, and more

The next major update to the Xbox One operating system will bring support for AMD FreeSync, according to Microsoft.

This is good news for players because the future Xbox One X and Xbox One S updates will allow the monitors' refresh rates to display a very smooth image, without tearing, for example. FreeSync (like G-Sync) is something that really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated, and Xbox will have a chance to do that soon. This works the same way as the first version of FreeSync, but adds some other goodies to the equation, most notably high dynamic range (HDR) support. The end result is a more buttery gaming experience. Instead of standard viewing modes, which apply image processing to displayed visuals introducing unintended lag in gaming scenarios, the Xbox will work with TVs to automatically enter into its low-latency mode. Later this year, the Xbox One will also support an Auto Low Latency Mode which will switch supported TVs, including select Samsung models, to a low-latency mode while playing games.

Not only will the Xbox One support this, but it will be able to activate a TV's low latency mode only when a game is actually running. With the recent addition of 1440p support for those who use computer monitors with their Xbox One consoles, adding in variable refresh rate on AMD Radeon FreeSync displays is a logical, and welcome next step.

When you come back to the TVs main menu to launch Netflix, for example, the Low Latency mode will be disabled and your TV will automatically return to the classic settings so you can enjoy the best experience. Microsoft demonstrated this during its Inside Xbox Stream yesterday.
