  1. Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of July 10, 2017 on the 8GB Radeon RX 580 with Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.7.2, on a test system comprising of Intel i7 7700K CPU (4.2 GHz), 16GB DDR4-3000 Mhz system memory, and Windows 10 x64 using the game Overwatch on the epic preset. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. At 3840X2160, Radeon Software Crimson Edition driver 17.7.2 and 8GB Radeon RX 580 with Enhanced Sync ON had a 4.2ms2 variance and VSync ON had a 50.4ms2 variance, which is 92% lower variance. All times an average of 3 test runs. Results are estimates and may vary. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. RS-151
  2. Radeon FreeSync™ technology is designed to eliminate stuttering and/or tearing in games and videos by locking a display’s refresh rate to the frame rate of the graphics card. Radeon FreeSync™ technology compatible monitor and a compliant Radeon™ GPU and/or AMD A-Series APU are required. A list of supported hardware and compatible monitors is available at www.amd.com/freesync. Check with your component or system manufacturer for specific capabilities. GD-67
