Functions designed specifically for gaming (ALLM, VRR, QMS, QFT)

Advanced gaming and multimedia features provide even smoother motion and transitions in games, movies and videos. These include: Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM ) automatically sets the ideal latency for smooth viewing as well as quick response to commands. The variable update frequency ( Variable Refresh Rate, VRR ) reduces or eliminates the delay interruption and rupture of the image, making the gameplay more smooth and detailed. Fast Multimedia Switching ( Quick Switching Media, QMS ) for film and video eliminates delay, which may cause the contents of empty frames before mapping. Fast frame transmission ( the Quick the Frame Transport, of QFT) reduces signal latency for smoother gaming and real-time interactive VR experiences.
