Giblets: AMD FreeSync driver update for Catalyst coming 19 March 2015

If you’re an owner of a Radeon R9 285, 290, 290X, 295X2 or R7 260X, you might be happy to know that starting on 19 March, you can happily look for and purchase a monitor compatible with Displayport 1.2a+ (FreeSync/Adaptive Sync) and have it working out of the box with the latest drivers. AMD says that because their partners are now shipping and selling monitors with the “FreeSync Capable” logo on the box, its time to finally get the driver out into the wild for gamers to test with. Its not yet clear when we’ll see monitors that work with Adaptive Sync locally, but my guess is that by the end of May 2015 we’ll have at least three monitors on offer which will have been vetted by AMD’s validation program. The only thing to note is that version 1 of the driver doesn’t support Crossfire (planned for an April update) and won’t work in Eyefinity, which AMD plans to fix as soon as possible.
