        Gnome3 is a horrible desktop that is buggy and never ready. Most people do want to have a stable system, so use desktops that are not under heavy development forever. The Xorg Present extension is for the X window system. Xwayland must implemented that at least. Wayland does not have any freesync implementation.

          If it needs the amdgpu ddx, i think it's safe to assume it won't work on wayland.

              Now I wish there were any 16:10 aspect ratio displays with IPS panels that support Freesync. Sorry but I'm not switching back to 16:9. I develop software primarily and extra height really makes a difference. And I love my Dell U2315.

                Is the monitor also capable of freesync over hdmi ? some of them can only do freesync over DP.

                    My HP Envy x360 15-cp0001na with AU Optronics AUO22ED panel, was recognized as FreeSync capable 40 - 60 Hz on windows. But not on linux with kernel 5.0
                    xrandr --prop says vrr_capable: 0

                    Maybe I need to manually edit EDID data or something..
