    During the Inside Xbox show, Microsoft announced that Alpha Ring members will soon get an update that adds FreeSync to Xbox One X and Xbox One S. Similar to Nvidia's G-SYNC, FreeSync is an AMD technology that matches the refresh rate of compatible displays with the framerate of the graphics card. This reduces stuttering and screen tearing to make gameplay more smooth. This feature was until now exclusive to PC players and required a compatible AMD graphics card and a monitor with FreeSync support. However, console players usually play on a TV and since TVs generally don't support FreeSync , most players likely won't be able to make use of the feature, unless they play on a compatible monitor.

    Another noteworthy thing that was announced is an automatic Low Latency Mode on supported displays. The problem with TVs is that a lot of them mess with the video to enhance the quality, but at the cost of latency. The Auto Low Latency Mode fixes that by forcing your TV to automatically switch to the mode that has the lowest latency.

    Other things include various fixes, a Microsoft Edge update to match the look and feel of the Windows 10 version and the ability for players to upload content directly to Twitter.

    That's nice... I suppose. At least it is a proper feature update.

    The PS4 uses a AMD gpu as well, so you'd think the PS4 might get this too, but I'm guessing it'll be treated like cross-play...

    Thats nice since freesync monitors tend to be way cheaper than gsync.

    The "only when you failed to sell your consoles so you'll try to make something new for a change" moment, I guess.

    Or they could already have both? Lots of people (including me) use a monitor for a tv and/or vice versa. You act as if an entirely new feature that is going help a nonzero amount of people is somehow a drawback.

    behind a keyboard or a gamepad
    that would be useless because
    1. no tv supports it, you would need to use a monitor and most if not all people play their consoles on a tv in the living room.
    2. the benefits are close to none as consoles are struggling to reach even 60fps so no game will run at high enough fps to gain something from it. sure you'll shave a couple milliseconds of input lag compared to triple buffer vsync but so little that would be imperceptible.

    What a freakin' news especially how powerful Xbox One X is. Too bad I'm still not seeing some interesting and exclusive games for that console.
    If they could at least do that, then that would be one hell of a gaming machine and a definite alternative to PC gaming since it's getting expensive especially the RAMs and GPUs.
