This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Screen tearing and judder not only pull you out of immersion, but can also give you a headache. So if you can't maintain 60 FPS at 4K -- and nearly noone can — AMD FreeSync can tie the display's refresh rate to the number of frames per second, preventing distracting, lag-inducing stuttering. These monitors pair perfectly with Radeon- and Vega-powered systems, including the entire Xbox family. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best monitors with amd freesync on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 13, 2018:

It's officially time for gamers to investigate AMD GPUs and FreeSync displays, because many (this editor included) are pretty steamed at their competitor's pricing decisions, marketing tactics, compatible software library, and quality control. Radeon and Vega GPUs are popular because they're good and inexpensive, and monitors like the LG, ViewSonic, and BenQ are affordable and totally awesome. Mac users will love the UltraFine 5K, as they're more used to paying an arm and a leg. You likely won't find anything bolder than the stunning Samsung option (thanks, quantum dots), and the G-Story is an innovative one that will let you game pretty much anywhere you can plug it into the wall. The Pavilion won the top spot in part because of its DisplayHDR 600 certification, and given the right content, that approval can really mean a lot.
