FreeSync Now Available on Select 2018 TVs
What is FreeSync?
FreeSync VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) is a new feature that allows the TV to adapt to the Game console's frame rate. So, whether the game console displays 59 FPS or 65 FPS, with FreeSync, the TV displays each frame as it is received from the source. This provides clean, smooth images, and prevents stutter and screen tearing.
FreeSync Compatible Models
To enable FreeSync, the TV must have firmware version 1103.4 or higher, and must be connected to a device that supports FreeSync such as Xbox One X or Xbox One S.

Frame Rates on Your TV
TVs and some monitors have a set refresh rate. This means that no matter what signal the TV is receiving, it will always display the same number of Frames per second (FPS).
While this is not an issue when watching TV shows or movies, game consoles send a varying number of frames per second. This means that if the TV displays 60 FPS, and the console only sends 59 FPS, there will be a "stutter" where the TV displays the same frame twice to make up the 60 FPS.
Another situation is if the TV is displaying 60 FPS, and the console sends 65 FPS, the TV will cut out some of the frames. Sometimes the TV will show half of one frame and half of another frame, causing "screen tearing."
