Xbox One update brings AMD Freesync support, automatic TV game mode switching Xbox One update brings AMD Freesync support, automatic TV game mode switching

AMD has announced that it will be introducing its variable refresh rate technology, FreeSync 2, for Microsoft's Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles.

While some gamers use a computer monitor with their consoles, there are plenty more who hook them up to TVs.

What do you think about some of the new features and games coming to the Xbox One?

OnePlus 5 Gets Android 8.1 Through Open Beta 6 Update
Now this is a beta, which means you do need to update to the company's open beta program to get updated to Android Oreo. There is no word from OnePlus regarding the older phones' 3/3T 8.1 updates as they are on Android 8.0 already.

This mode will detect when a game is launched from the Xbox interface and will automatically switch the TV to low-latency mode or game mode. Like PCs powered by AMD Radeon graphics technology, the Xbox One S and Xbox One X will deliver variable refresh rates so that compatible displays will work in sync with the Xbox GPU to remove tearing and deliver smoother gaming visuals. The Xbox One X will be able to take advantage by automatically sending the necessary signal to the TV when gameplay starts.

In addition to FreeSync compatibility, Microsoft also announced that its two latest consoles will also be compatible with the Auto Low Latency mode offered on some upcoming TVs, including the aforementioned Samsung TVs. Support for AMD Freesync is coming this spring but low-latency support will not be available until a future update later in 2018, perhaps with the Redstone 5 update for Windows 10, given that Xbox platform and Windows platform software updates are aligned.

Microsoft dropped some big news during the season premiere of its "Xbox Inside" show, which it streamed online over the weekend. When the console switches to a media app, it will turn the display's game mode off, such as when using Netflix - when a viewer would want image processing to be active.
