    Re: AMD Catalyst 15.3 Beta Driver for Windows OS

    Explore your options, but best of luck finding a manufacturer who will guarantee a card introduced today will be compliant with innovations implemented three years later. Nvidia "solved" this backwards compatibility by selling additional hardware built into the monitor. The price premium for that is roughly what your HD7950/R9 280 sells for currently. If AMD sold an add-on board for $150-200 dollars that would enable freesync on older generation cards would you buy one?
