VIZIO Rolls Out AMD FreeSync™ Software Update to 2021 TV Collection
Irvine, CA – October 28, 2020 – VIZIO, Inc., the #1 American-based TV brand1, today announces that its ProGaming Engine™, available on M-Series Quantum, P-Series Quantum, and P-Series Quantum X, is receiving a performance-enhancing software update, adding AMD FreeSync technology support for effortlessly fluid, tear- and artifact-free gaming performance at virtually any framerate.
With the update, VIZIO M-Series TVs are certified for AMD FreeSync and P-Series for AMD FreeSync Premium, AMD’s latest performance standard for serious gamers, improving the accuracy of VRR playback for a smoother gameplay experience during the most intense scenes of the latest, most demanding games. To simplify connection and compatibility with HDMI devices that support VRR, the automatic VRR verification process has been improved as well. On P-Series, you also can take advantage of the Nvidia RTX30, a new 4K 120fps HDMI graphics card, for frustration-free, high-performance connectivity that supports multiple VRR technologies. These improvements give gamers the competitive edge in today’s most demanding games, including Marvel’s Avengers. In August, VIZIO announced its role as the game’s official HDTV and sound bar partner.
“Today’s games are more demanding than ever, and so are today’s gamers. We worked side by side with AMD to ensure AMD FreeSync technology would be available on our 2021 Collection, in turn giving our users a smooth, high refresh rate gaming experience,” said Bill Baxter, Chief Technology Officer at VIZIO. “With highly anticipated game console releases from Microsoft and Sony around the corner, consumers are looking for a commitment to high-end gaming performance on the big screen that matches their own passion. VIZIO’s 2021 lineup delivers on that commitment and then some with best-in-class 4K Quantum Color picture performance and industry-leading peak brightness.”
