AMD and Ubisoft Add FreeSync 2 HDR Support to Far Cry 5

Today, AMD and Ubisoft have raised the bar for fluid, vivid HDR gaming thanks to a new patch from Ubisoft bringing FreeSync 2 HDR support to Far Cry 5. Radeon gamers with supporting FreeSync 2 HDR monitors can select the option for FreeSync 2 while fighting to save Hope Country. FreeSync 2 HDR brings the content displayed on compatible monitors one step closer to the artistic vision of the developer by targeting the display's brightness, contrast and color gamut capabilities directly.

To take advantage of FreeSync 2 HDR technology, gamers must choose a FreeSync 2 HDR-branded monitor, which ensures at least twice the perceivable color gamut and dynamic range than an SDR display.
Those looking to experience Far Cry 5 gameplay beyond the PC can also support The Resistance in HDR, high frame rates and low latency on the Samsung QLED 55" to 82" TV range. With support for FreeSync technology, these options provide gamers with smooth gameplay visuals and low latency regardless of their preferred platform.

Support for FreeSync 2 HDR is available today through an automatic update within Far Cry 5.

Now if they only made a graphics card that could consistently run in on High over 100FPS @ 1440 P, and wasn't a mythical unicorn that commands a ridiculous markup when you do find it, I would be sold.

I don't think this is bad for Ultra? I would normally run it in my Freesync Range as it "fits"(35-90)But I ran it 144. Also I didn't get any update so it's not pushed yet.

What exactly is a Freesync 2 HDR support? Does it work with any HDR-capable screen or does it require Freesync 2 HDR monitor?

It needs to have HDR more then 400 to be certified for Freesync 2 HDR from AMD. But if you have Freesync 2 monitor with HDR-600 it essentially the same.

With VA Panel and b2w / w2b @ 40-50ms? Reason I returned my Samsung C27HG70. Huge blur and smearing during those transistions..

Battlefield 1 runs over 100 fps at 1440P on a Vega56. What else do you need?

Someone making battlefield 1 mod for farcry 5, or what kind of silly response was that.

I meant game-wise. The original news post says Ubisoft added Freesync 2 HDR support to Far Cry 5. Whatever that means. :)
