AMD has announced the AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR Technology Oasis Demo. The Oasis demo will allow users to explore the features and advantages of Radeon FreeSync technology over conventional display methods. The Oasis demo comes with features for full control and real-time configurable settings. The tool is intended for system integrators and sales personnel to demonstrate FreeSync and HDR technology in retail stores.

The demo is built in Unreal Engine 4 and supports HDR10, as well as FreeSync 2 HDR transport protocols. We hope that once you experience the demo live at a store, you'll be convinced to get on the AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR Technology train and never look back.

I don't see a download link, I guess watching Youtube videos is almost like benchmarking your own system.... \s Oh, I forgot, this is not a benchmark.

I'm sure there will be a download at some point, if not by AMD then by some official reviewer/reseller that leaks it.

The question is will AMD get enough demos of this to loop at Best Buy, WalMart, Costco, etc for it to actually impact the tech-clueless customers? Aren't all the people "in the know" already invested in said technology or looking into it?

About time someone actually made a demo! I wonder if this will work with Nvidia cards as well? The Best Buys around us sell Samsung ultra extra extra wide FreeSyncII monitors, what ever they are called and other Samsung models. AMD needs some reps like the old days where companies would plant people through various stores to talk to the customers, show demo's, at least train some Best Buy sales personal. Looks like the demo will be given out, hard to believe it will be limited to just stores though.

It would be hard to try to upsell someone on just VRR. In a showroom things like the obv screen size and resolution, and secondary to the physical the color saturation and brightness are what are going to make one model pop out over another. You may see things like RGB lighting or a snazzy stand or OSD... but it's like selling TVs.. if they all show the same movie, the only thing that is going to make them pop is overdrive the color and brightness.

I work in a brick and motar computer store on the weekend and trying to describe Adaptive Refresh to customers is one hell of a task. Having a pretty demo may be a godsend.
Even with a demo it's a bit difficult, did it over the weekend at a lan when the guy next to me had managed to fall on the norwegian ice when carrying his screen.
got a crack but screen thankfully worked.
