This post contains info on some of the best possible gaming monitors that are coming with AMD FreeSync support. Our list comprises monitors measuring 27 inches in diagonal size, are FreeSync compatible and are using IPS, VA and TN panels.
AMD FreeSync provides adaptive synchronization technology for LCD panels that are offering support for dynamic/ variable refresh rate. Using AMD FreeSync should get rid of screen tearing and stuttering. This technology has been designed in order to greatly improve gaming performance. In order to enjoy the FreeSync technology you will need to own monitor and AMD GPUs that are supporting the technology. All the models presented below are coming with built-in FreeSync capable panels, so you will only need a computer with a GPU that has FreeSync support. If you've bought a new AMD GPU in the last 4-5 years, then FreeSync should be natively supported by it.
AMD FreeSync is supported by both DisplayPort and HDMI ports and cables. Note that some HDMI ports on various gaming monitors might not support variable refresh rates, and you will have to use a DisplayPort instead. If your gaming monitor has been delivered only with an HDMI cable, then you should make sure that it supports FreeSync, as if it doesn't support it, then you will require to purchase a capable DisplayPort cable, too.
Note that some of the models presented below should also feature G-Sync compatibility, too, but we cannot guarantee that it will work as great as the FreeSync technology.

SAMSUNG C27HG70 - Curved VA Display QHD 1440p
Samsung's C27HG70 curved gaming monitor uses a VA panel with a 1440p screen resolution capable of 144Hz variable refresh rate. Being a VA monitor you should expect it to offer excellent color quality and accuracy, but a slower response time when it comes to gaming. However, since this monitor is coming with FreeSync technology out of the box, then you should be getting good input lag at a variable refresh rate of 144Hz, which should be enough to compensate for the slow response time.
The Samsung C27HG70 design offers a curved VA panel with a curve radius of 1800R and not so thin bezels. The stand's design doesn't allow you to place it too close to a wall, but it has an LED circle on its back, which should bring a modern and futuristic look to your gaming room. This monitor comes with height adjustment, pivot, swivel and tilt support.

The panel on the LG 27GL850 sports Nano IPS and HDR10 compatibility and a gray-to-gray response time set at 1ms, which is something that should make it the fastest monitor out there.

The LG 27GL850 offers 2x HDMI ports, 1x DisplayPort, 3x USB ports and 3.5mm headphone jack. For those curious about the speakers availability, then you need to know that these aren't present on this model. The LG GL850 monitor stand offers height, pivot and tilt adjustments.
