Xbox Scorpio Will Support FreeSync And Next-Gen HDMI To Reduce Screen Tearing And Stutter

Impressive. Most impressive.

Posted By | On 11th, Apr. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


The Xbox Scorpio is apparently taking its position as the most powerful and advanced console ever made very seriously- it’s not just specs where the Scorpio goes above and beyond. Apparently, the console will be supporting the newest possible standards, including FreeSync and next gen HDMI, as well.

As Digital Foundry reports, in simple terms this means that Scorpio supports AMD’s FreeSync technology, as well as the upcoming variable refresh rate support that is build into HDMI 2.1 spec. This means that there will be reduced stutter, and next to no screen tearing, when playing on the Scorpio. Another second order effect this could have would be enabling arbitrary framerates, such as 45Hz, with these technologies enabling those framerates without any visual abnormalities.

This is in keeping with the Scorpio’s status as the most sophisticated gaming console ever made- it should be interesting to see how much of an impact the system has on the market when it launches later this year.

      Naaah
      They could care less about sony. They are the new Xbox team with a lot of pride..just getting started. 2 of these Scorpios for my household.

    • Hashirama Senju

      The man you should actually be thanking is none other than the infamous Panos Panay and the Surface team. I am damn sure they have done the heavy custom work together with the Xbox team. 😛

    • Rasta4

      Hmmm
      Interesting….thx for the info.

    • Hashirama Senju

      You are welcome. 🙂

      Oh ok, I’ve heard of that name. From Digital Foundry all I read about was Andrew Goosen, Chris Tector and a few others…..unless u mean they pretty much bit off Panos from a design approach?

    • Hashirama Senju

      Those guys must be from the Xbox team. Panos Panay is the head of the entire hardware team at Microsoft which encompasses everything from phones to Surface to Xbox to fitness band etc. I am sure the Surface Team has worked on the custome cooling, the design and different other parts of the Xbox Scorpio. Though I am speculating but Panos is a magician. He can do anything. 🙂

    I’m playing all the best and biggest games on Scorpio.
    Red Dead 2, star wars 2, destiny 2, and crackdown. There will be plenty more on top of that my current library will run at its optimum settings all the time now.

    You sound like a bitter angry hater.
    You a Sony licker or a PC freak ?

  • Joe Cool

    You sound like a tough guy!! Can we all be your friend?

  • theduckofdeath

    Maybe. Doubtful, though. PS3 was $600 (plus 8.25 sales tax) at launch 10 years ago, and that didn’t stop me. How are people still complaining about consoles over $400? Especially considering this one is stacked console-wise, and there is a cheap $200 option.

    • Hiyperion

      Quite right. You would think things like $1200 GPUs wouldn’t sell at all by that logic – talking about working people here, which is assumed no one here is. However, there were kids that bought the ps3 with their own money + games. That goes into $700 territory and beyond.

  • Riggybro

    Does it work on any TV?

    If yes then that is MASSIVE

    • Mark

      Nah, it’s FreeSync READY, meaning you’d need to have a TV that has HDMI 2.1 and supports FreeSync too. I read that maybe 2018 manufacturers will start bringin these to market

    • Riggybro

      Ah got it.

      Still awesome tho.
      I have a Gsync monitor- it was life changing LOL

    • Hiyperion

      Indeed, but it being a free standard makes it far more viable than Nvidias closed of solution, and second:

      “We are definitely working with the entire display community on getting FreeSync to more places,” said Koduri, who seemed to hesitate before continuing. “I think this is something we should follow up…on what we can share at this point on FreeSync TVs.” – link: http://bit.ly/2ooeNX7

      You would think that with MS … well, Leadbetter announcing that, the manufacturers are scrambling to get FreeSync and possibly even HDMI 2.1 out ASAP to get in on the hype/possible sales.

    • Mark

      Dude nice find! Dam it makes me wanna hold off gettin a 4k screen till next yr. I’m certain I’ll be waitin till the holidays, minimum, to buy the best one I find, for Scorpio. But dam, I hope they release sumthin with FreeSync by then, fingers crossed

    • Mr Xrat

      No TVs exist that use this technology.

      It got the desired response from Xgimps though.

    • C. Hoffer

      I fully expect TV’s and monitors to merge all their tech around 2019.

  • Mark

    Dude probably everybody in here works ahaha. You make it sound like 700 bucks is expensive…..I bought the OG Xbox for 600 beans when I was 16….it ain’t hard to get a system!

    • Hiyperion

      I would also guess there were many “kids” who got the ps3 when it first came out … and that was not cheap either.

  • greatnessIsaLIE

    Everybody let’s just take the time to thank all the gamers that were complaining about the xb1 framerate and resolution shortcomings. Thank you Xbox fans that spoke out,thank you Sony fans for talking trash and thank you Microsoft for listening to us all. Thank you for making the console that we all want. Now show us some games at e3. Exclusive or not exclusive it doesn’t matter just show us how much better the games are on scorpio.

    I want to give a special thanks to all the Sony fan girls and boys that talk the most trash. Because of you we gamers now have a better option than the ps4 when it comes to 4k gaming excluding pc of course. The scorpio will not be a titan xp or anything but will be good enough for decent 4k.

    • Riggybro

      Thank you for releasing 3 years of suppressed anger in such a passive aggressive way.

      Thank you for continuing the narrative of an imaginary war that exists between 0.0001 % of the total people who play video games.

      Thank you for the neutral olive branch to a third party known as PC.

      Thank you for the extra visits to this website from the people viewing your comment.

    • Mr Xrat

      Such a shame that the Jaguar CPU and being held back by the base hardware isn’t going to give those already bad looking games a second change, Xgimp.

      Uncle Phil’s got you mindless losers in the palm of his hand.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Haha there you go. Thanks Mr rat because of people like you for inspiring this jaguar that’ll take a dump on your PileofShit4. Keep it up buddy and maybe the ps5 will be under powered next Gen as well.

    • Mr Xrat

      Remember all that Zen begging, Xgimp? I remember.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Hey I would’ve paid for it.
      I guess they went the cheap route.
      Real 4k will have to stay on pc for now.

  • HaCkEr_Fc
    • Mr Xrat

      Stick to trying to sh*ll for Ryse.

  • Mr Xrat

    Unfortunately for Xgimps, there’s barely a TV out there that actually uses this technology. As DF themselves say:

    “to see the benefit, you’ll need to have a PC monitor – a 4K one preferably, though 1080p screens will work – and it needs to support FreeSync over HDMI. This limits the amount of potential screens as it’s more frequently run via DisplayPort, a video output that is not supported by Scorpio.”

    But it’s another marketing phrase for Xgimps to cling to after that monster never appeared, so they’ll take it.

      lol!!!!Jealousy Rat haha!!!

    • Mr Xrat

      What’s to be jealous of, Cronk?

  • smd

    As Digital Foundry puts it, it’s future-proofing so when HDMI 2.1 comes, people are ready to go

    It’s also good for AMD since it’ll help push its FreeSync technology to be wider adopted

  • Fweds

    Well do what the head of Sony told people to do to get a ps3 “Get a second job”
