AMD Enhanced Sync - Increased responsiveness and less shutter
We all know that V-Sync is far from a perfect option, allowing stuttering to take place when a game isn't played at your display's refresh rate and allowing a lot of additional latency to take place when framerates could be higher.
This has prompted AMD to create their new "Enhanced Sync" technology, which is designed to minimise frame latency while also reducing stuttering and minimising screen tearing.
Enhanced sync runs at an unlocked frame framerate and effectively sits between VSync and FreeSync, working to minimise latency and decrease stuttering. This technology will not offer an experience that is as good as FreeSync, but it is a marked improvement when looking at the user's gameplay experience.
Beyond that Enhanced Sync will work with FreeSync when your display is working outside of its FreeSync range, allowing even FreeSync users to benefit from this technology.
