VIZIO AMD FreeSync Update to 2021 TVs, 4K 120Hz For Next-Gen

VIZIO is rolling out performance updates on 2021 series TVs, including P-series (PQ9 and PQX), M-series (MQ7 and MQ8), and OLED models. This enhancement adds AMD FreeSync to the ProGaming engine on the M-series Quantum, P-series Quantum, and P-series Quantum X.

Here’s what you’ll see depending on the model you’re using:

VIZIO P series (PQ9 and PQX)

  • AMD FreeSync Premium VRR
  • Enhanced 4K 120Hz graphics performance
  • Sharper local dimming
  • Enhanced black level performance
  • Improved SDR and HDR brightness
  • Improved judder reduction

VIZIO M series (MQ7 and MQ8)

  • AMD FreeSync VRR
  • Sharper local dimming
  • Enhanced black level performance
  • Improved SDR and HDR brightness


  • 4K 120Hz next generation graphics
  • Smoother variable refresh rate
  • Improved judder reduction

The central focus of this update is to add a smoother experience without artifacts or screen tiering. This is a symptom of the TV refresh rate not matching the console frame rate output. VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) matches the output of the console and avoids rendering half-frames that create screen crevices and artifacts, especially in action- and motion-rich scenes. AMD FreeSync also advertises the benefits of low input latency. Specifically, M-series TVs have AMD FreeSync and P-series have AMD FreeSync Premium.

Bill Baxter, VIZIO’s Chief Technology Officer, commented on the new AMD FreeSync Performance Enhancement Update.
