Samsung’s sleek-looking 2018 QLED TVs are packed with features that appeal to a wide range of customers. From those who care more about design to those who prefer IoT capabilities, Samsung has addressed the TV requirements of many customers with its latest models. With a new firmware update, Samsung is now trying to appeal to the gamers as well.

Aimed at improving the gaming experience

Display review site Rtings has noticed that the latest firmware update, version 1103, brings FreeSync support to the 2018 QLED TVs. AMD's FreeSync is designed to address the screen tearing issue which occurs due to non-matching refresh rates between a PC/console and a display, resulting in a visual artifact where information from multiple frames are shown at once on the screen. The addition of FreeSync support should improve the gaming experience on Samsung’s latest QLED TVs.

According to Rtings, FreeSync technology is now supported by Samsung’s NU8000, and 2018 QLED models Q6FN, Q7FN, Q8FN and Q9FN. The update apparently started rolling out on May 21 and should be available for all eligible devices by now. If you have any of these FreeSync supported models connected to an Xbox One S/X or a PC with AMD graphics, you can benefit from the FreeSync support.

Once the firmware update is installed, the FreeSync option can be found in the Game Mode Settings under External Device Manager the TV’s Settings menu. Samsung warns that the mode may not work perfectly and may cause issues with brightness. Also, only 1080p resolution is supported in FreeSync currently.
