The Tech Report published a video of Freesync in action using a camera which records at 240 fps. The subject material is running at less than the 60Hz that most of our monitors use which means that you can actually see what it does for you. Watching the video at 60Hz you can see the tearing on the blades of the windmill as the actual frame rate of the render is 44 – 45Hz while when Freesync is active the matched frequencies do not cause any tearing. The demonstration shows how Freesync can benefit lower end systems that are not going to push a 144Hz monitor to the limits, if you can only manage 40-50 fps in a game Freesync is going to make it much easier on your eyes.

"We've been hearing about FreeSync, AMD's answer to Nvidia's G-Sync variable refresh display tech, for just over a year now. This week at CES, we finally got a chance to see FreeSync in action, and we used that opportunity to shoot some enlightening 240-FPS footage. We were able to find out some new specifics from AMD, as well."
