First Monitors with FreeSync over HDMI Launched

Samsung has declared that the first monitors capable of utilizing FreeSync over HDMI have been launched. The prior year AMD had announced the breakthrough and expected the first commercial monitors with the feat to come out in 2016. Samsung declared there would be three FreeSync over HDMI curved monitors. They are available in CF591, as a single 27-inch monitor, and in the CF390, with 23.5- and 27-inch options available.

All three monitors from Samsung are 1080p displays, support FreeSync over HDMI, and, unfortunately, suffer from a 60Hz refresh rate cap. On the other hand VA LCD panels, a 250cd/m² brightness and contrast rating 3000:1 respectively. A dividing feature among users will be the non-flat displays with their 1800R strong curve that all three possess. The main differences between these monitors are in features: the CF591 has superior color space, dual HDMI ports, a DisplayPort, and built-in 5W speakers over the CF390.

NVIDIA has yet to comment on the ability of G-Sync over HDMI.
