    This spring, Freesync 2 variable refresh rate support came to the Xbox One S and Xbox One X- but there were no TVs to go along with it! Now, Samsung has added Freesync support to its 2018 QLED TVs, including the Q9F. Is this the gaming TV we always wanted?

    Everywhere I read about this the articles specifically state that the nu8000 49" version is not supported? Linus?!! I need to choose which to buy. Is this bad information?

    Its a nice TV ….if you get a good one. Having just attempted to replace my F8500 Plasma I had researched this and others to the point of....well, I might be obsessed a bit. This TV has some strengths. Brightness, VRR, FALD, good blacks. High color range, nice interface. But it is missing Dolby Vision, has problems with DSE where some owners have replaced the panel 4,5,6 times. You can see the FLAD up close on some scenes, hallowing is better than most LCD but still there, vertical and horizontal viewing angles are pretty tight - nobody talks about the vertical one but it's there. Oddly lots of reports of motion issues with gaming too. All I'm saying is good look at one before you buy. I went with something else.

    The q8fn and the q9fn sre amazing but the q6fn and q7fn are not good its actually really really bad my new sony x900f is so much better I had the q6fn and I did not like it at all everything looked yellow and red no matter what kind of calibration wss done and was not smooth at all very jittery very jumpy nothing was really smooth yeah input lag was good so when I pressed the button it went to the tv fast but the tv would skip and just wssnt smooth idk but my sony x900f is amazing especially when put on 1080p at 120hz now at just 1080p st 60hz its it's in pop ut kag isnt good but if you go and out it at 1080p at 129hz its it's input lag is 12 sec not bad at all and when on 4k hdr4:4:4 its 24 ms still not bad. Ht I measured it at 18ms but either way the trade off for everything being good smooth no jitter everything is just clean and the input lag able to be that low when set up properly it is amazing and I love that you said just because those TVs have freesync doesnt mean it's good I love that and the variable refresh rate because they just measure certain things and that's what in saying my sonyx900f just feels better and the gameplay just feels better and I know for a fact it's not just in my head and your video proved it to me and I guarantee the q9fn is much better anyways then the q6fn and that tells me that zi was right it was one of the most horrible gaming experiences I've ever had my old ku6300 was better then the q6fn and again my x900f is a beast there is a review next to the ks8500 samsung and it looked a little quicker just shows me again that the sony does feel better and a sone say it's an amazing gaming tv it really is idc what anybody says because you know when somethings playing better or it isnt

    Spoke to Samsung customer service today. As with most big company CSR’s, they were of zero help. What I wanted to know, is if Samsung’s 2018 tv’s support VRR and HDR simultaneously. They tell me the answer is no - and that if Freesync is enabled, HDR is thereby disabled. I don’t believe this to be true. As you noted, I think they support 4K@60hz, HDR, and VRR simultaneously. Can you confirm this to be the case? I have a NU8000, and I do not want to pick between VRR or HDR when gaming in 4K.

  • Krakus Krak

    I truly don't get the hype about FreeSync or GSync. Even though I do have a FreeSync capable ultrawide screen and a Radeon GPU I still prefer to "downclock" or "overclock" the screen from 60hz mark to whatever GPU is able to reliably push. Gameplay on a monitor downclocked to 45hz with vSync enabled looks much smoother then jumpy 45-60 with Free/GSync. Same goes for 100hz constant vs FPS randomly jumping between100-130 on 144hz monitor.

    You guys didn't even do PC gaming tests on it running Freesync with that Vega card. Why? It does both 1080p/120 and 1440p/120 with Freesync with very low for a TV (10ms) input lag.

    Finnally! I have been waiting so long for TVs to widely adopt adaptive sync technology. Also Linus, I'm pretty sure LFC req. is not freeeync 2, but that the high end of the VRR be double or more of the low end VRR. So this TV does support LFC at its 1080p 48-120hz setting. Freesync 2 features are HDR and borderless window support.

    QLED thats all said - Still old LED backlight panel with just higher brightness vs OLED. Horrible blacklight issue with movies.
