Today AMD announces an alternative to VSync called Enhanced Sync. This is an option for those who do not own a FreeSync monitor, but still prefer lower latency in exchange for tearing. Enhanced Sync was developed to minimize tearing and improve the latency.
AMD provided a chart to illustrate when Enhanced Sync will be helpful. It won’t eliminate tearing, but it will improve the responsiveness for high FPS gaming.
AMD’s Enhanced Sync is a direct response to NVIDIA’s FastSync technology.
