AMD releases their Oasis demo to showcase Freesync and Freesync 2

AMD is introducing a new technology demo called Oasis to showcase FreeSync (Adaptive Sync) and FreeSync 2 with HDR support. Oasis is a demo that cycles through a 3D rendered scenery (built on Unreal Engine 4) and you can proactively turn FreeSync On and Off while running the demo.

Oasis is not meant as a benchmark but rather it is a tool to compare the difference between not having enabled FreeSync vs it being diasbled.

It is good to point out that the demo supports the HDR10 standard, as well as FreeSync 2 HDR transport protocols.

AMD said in a blog post that they are planning a program where people browsing monitors in retail stores will have better visibility on FreeSync and FreeSync 2 HDR products.

Below we a captured a short slow motion video at a 720p240fps instance directly in front of an AOC G2590PX paired with an RX 580 graphics card. You will easily notice screen tearing and stuttering on the FreeSync Off (right side) whereas with FreeSync On (left side), there is negligible anomalies within the frames.

Though the RX 580 is capable of FreeSync 2, we were not able to get our hands on a FreeSync 2 capable monitor as they are not yet available in the local market. We’ll probably come back with another video feature once FreeSync 2 monitors are available.

AMD recommends using their new Radeon VII graphics card with Oasis to really show what FreeSync and FreeSync 2 HDR is really capable of.
