    Great success. See notes: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/bnieu...46#note_144484

    It is currently necessary to inform Xorg that wish to enable adaptive sync via the following amdgpu option:
    Code:
    Option "VariableRefresh" "true"
    perhaps the failed tests didn't have that option set :shrug:

    I has Freesync monitor and "Radeon VII" video card and I am interested for adding Freesync for RADV in mainline. Of course I will testing this patch, but I am worried about one question.
    How developers to know that everything works well? If I don’t find any bugs, then there will no bug reports from me. Therefore, I wonder how I can feedback through positive reports?
    I suggest to make a form with applications which should be tested to make sure that everything is fine. And everybody who want helping tesing Freesync would filling this form.

    Michael I don't seem to have permission to edit my own post, is the fact that it is unapproved due to the fact I had just posted it?
    Update: For some odd reason it was flagged as spam.
    Update2: Thanks, the post can be seen from here when logged out as well.
    Update3: Editing my post has resulted in it being flagged as spam again?
    Update4: Thank you once again, all seems to be alright now. I'm not going to try touching that post again.

    Creak Until my post is approved, I'll post that due to my work, I had personally handled laptops from Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Asus, after they arrived from the official importers in my country, so I am pretty sure of what I had seen preinstalled on them.

But for the other brands, it quickly starts to be blurry. For instance, I searched for "asus laptop linux site:asus.com" there was no official webpage whatsoever.

    So I did some research:
    What I had said was based upon my work as a computer repair lab/store assistant, where my employer works with the official importers (there are 2) in our country (HP has their own import, but in addition to the two aforementioned importers).
    Here:
    Most Dells have options of either Windows or Ubuntu, with a select few being Windows only;
    Most HPs have options of either Windows or HP-Docs (I played a bit with it, it runs some 3.x kernel of Linux), with some being Windows only;
    Most Lenovos have options of either Windows or FreeDOS (my IdeaPad 300-15 for example, came with FreeDOS), with a select few being Windows only;
    Most Asus laptops are Windows only, some had an option for eOS (not Elementary), and some came with another, better known Linux distro (I forget which).

    I had personally set up many of these laptops for customers, so I am pretty sure of what I had seen.

    From the commit you linked: "HACK: vulkan/wsi: enable freesync."

    HACK

    Maybe that's why?

    Edit: Moreover, it's on the "freesync" branch. So your argument that "The RADV freesync patch is tested by several people and developers informed" is probably completely wrong. I doubt that a vast majority of devs are testing his branch. They are more likely testing the latest master branch.

Moreover, even though there are some mention of Linux on the first page, I moved the price cursor for something a bit beefier (above 1500 EUR) and then there is just no mention of Linux at all in the results.
    There is an OS, they just don't specify.
    Laptop matrix (sort of):
    Dell brings either Windows or Ubuntu;
    HP brings either Windows or their own custom Linux distro (with an ancient kernel), HP-Docs;
    Lenovo brings either Windows or FreeDOS;
    ASUS brings either Windows, eOS (not elementary), or another Linux distro (I forget which, perhaps Mint);
    I'm not sure about Acer or Toshiba, however I'm guessing that they probably have either FreeDOS or some Linux distro (or both), in addition to Windows.
