Lenovo Debuts Its First Ever PC Monitor with AMD FreeSync™ Technology
Astounding curved surface of the new Lenovo™ Y27f Curved Gaming Monitor offers greater gaming immersion and smooth, stutter-free gaming harnessing AMD FreeSync technology
SINGAPORE — August 16, 2016 — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) has announced the new Lenovo™ Y27f Curved Gaming Monitor, its first free-standing display incorporating AMD FreeSync™ technology, offering low input latency and an ultra-smooth, stutter free gaming and multimedia experience.1 With “the most extreme curve available today,”2 the 27-inch-wide, vertically aligned display provides extraordinary gaming immersion and a true-to-life viewing experience.
AMD FreeSync technology helps ensure smooth and fluid gameplay, and also enhances communication between the Lenovo Y27f Curved Gaming Monitor and an AMD FreeSync-capable GPU, allowing the display to dynamically adapt its refresh rate in alignment with the GPU’s creation of new frames. This prevents tearing by ensuring no new frames are drawn during the refresh period. FreeSync also eliminates stuttering, since the refresh rate is locked to the creation of new frames, and is supported on a wide range of AMD Radeon™ GPUs, including the recently launched Polaris architecture-based Radeon™ RX Series graphics cards.
“Our latest monitor, the Lenovo Y27f Curved Gaming Monitor, is optimized for gaming,” said Li Jun Su, Executive Director and General Manager of Visuals BU, PC & Smart Device Business Group, Lenovo. “AMD FreeSync technology along with a fast 144 Hz refresh rate eliminates screen tearing, and minimizes display stutter, input lag and motion blur to display more natural movement. Combined with full high definition 1920 x 1080 resolution and the most extreme curved display to date, the monitor provides our customers with the smoothest possible gaming and a great experience.”
“With AMD FreeSync technology, the new Lenovo Y27f provides truly immersive gaming,” said Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect, Radeon Technologies Group. “The monitor is an excellent choice for both casual and competitive gamers that depend on low latency, high framerates, and an ultra-smooth experience powered by AMD FreeSync technology.”
The Lenovo™ Y27f Curved Gaming Monitor is available now starting at SEP $399 USD.3 For more information visit www.lenovo.com.
