Freesync solution for screen tearing in monitor

What is project FreeSync?

Computer monitors usually refresh at the rate of 60 frames per second.As the contents like video having constant frame rate of 23.976 frames per second,so there is a sync between the video and monitor.But in games,there is never sync in monitor due to variable frame rates,which causes screen tearing. Freesync is the solution. Let’s see how it differs from traditional method to avoid screen tearing ?

HSA enabled APU “Kaveri” by AMD

 Once again the increase in available transistors provided the opportunity to integrate CPU with GPU into a single device called as “APU”. The close proximity of these two processor types offered the ability to more tightly couple the memory system to enable direct sharing of data structures. Faced with limitations in silicon scaling (maintaining Moore’s Law) and the driving need to improve performance and efficiency, the electronics industry is banding together to change the very nature of computing. This is the transition to “heterogeneous computing” where the various execution units are more tightly integrated and share system responsibility and resources. The critical part of this is elevating the other programmable execution units like the GPU to the same level of the CPU for memory access, queuing, and execution. In other words, rather than having a CPU and various co-processors, these various processor elements can be referred to in combination as “Compute Cores.” Kaveri is the first HSA enabled APU which is based on the concept of Compute cores.
