Y27F curved monitor comes from Lenovo

AMD has announced that Lenovo has released the Y27F Curved gaming monitor based around FreeSync.

AMD FreeSync technology improves communication between the Lenovo Y27f Curved Gaming Monitor and an AMD FreeSync-capable GPU, allowing the display to 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 and stuttering, since the refresh rate is locked to the creation of new frames.

Li Jun Su, Executive Director and General Manager of Visuals BU, PC & Smart Device Business Group said the Y27f was optimised for gaming and FreeSync technology helped a lot

“Its 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,” he enthused.

Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect, Radeon Technologies Group, said that 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.

You can pick one up for $399. Numbers wise this is the 101st publicly announced FreeSync display on the market.
