AMD komentāri par FreeSync 2 HDR polemiku



AMD earlier this month announced that it is simply renaming its new FreeSync 2 standard as FreeSync 2 HDR, since it already incorporates hardware HDR, even though HDR is but one among many new features introduced with FreeSync 2. This caused some controversy as some FreeSync 2-certified monitors, which could now be plastered with FreeSync 2 HDR stickers, barely meet VESA's DisplayHDR 400 standards. AMD released a detailed statement to TechPowerUp, in which it clarified that FreeSync 2 HDR in no way lowers the bar for HDR, and that its certification program is both separate from and predates VESA DisplayHDR standards.

Būtībā AMD apgalvo, ka visi ar FreeSync 2 HDR sertificētie displeji pārsniedz DisplayHDR 400 prasības, taču ne visi atbilst DisplayHDR 600 minimālajiem parametriem. Šādos gadījumos monitoru ražotāji specifikāciju lapās vai pašā izstrādājumā var pielīmēt gan DisplayHDR 400, gan AMD FreeSync 2 HDR logotipus, taču tas nenozīmē, ka viņu monitori var izstarot tikai 400 nitu spilgtumu. Paziņojums seko.
