AMD announced that HP will be releasing two new Envy 15z laptops that will feature the company’s FreeSync technology. HP also intends to enable FreeSync support across its entire lineup of AMD 6th generation A-Series processor-powered laptops later this year.
FreeSync is AMD’s variable refresh rate technology. FreeSync-enabled displays and GPUs (or in this case, APUs) improve the communication between the monitor and processor, offering a smoother user experience at lower frame rates by matching the display’s refresh rate to the GPU’s output, reducing stutters and tearing.
Full specifications of the two new HP Envy 15z laptops are not available yet, but the announcement that HP would be extending FreeSync support to its entire lineup of 6th generation AMD A-Series processor-equipped laptops seems to indicate an increased presence in the mobility market from AMD.
