Samsung Freesync TV's

Post by supertoast » 05 Jun 2018, 12:23

Rtings have reviewed some of Samsung TV's with Freesync active in firmware.

On 120Hz panels;
* 2160p/4K Freesync range is 48-60Hz
* 1080p Freesync range is 20-120Hz

An unusual thing is the 1440p output is limited to 120Hz, there is no 60Hz output. No mention of the Freesync range at 1440p would it be the same as 1080p ?

Seems like a good option for XB1S owners but if your on an XB1X you may have to take a resolution hit to get the most out of it.

I want to clarify this for anybody that comes here. The freesync range is actually 48-120 hz with freesync ultimate selected. The Samsung tv's support low frame rate compensation though, so below 48 it starts to double frames and then triples frames from 16-24. It does this for 1440 p also.

The range for 4k is 48-60 because the refresh rate maxes out at 60 hz, and obviously LFC isn't supported at this resolution because doubling frames would put it outside of it's upper limit.
