Not all models apply. Refer below for eligible monitors. Eligible models: LC27HG70 *, LC32HG70 *, LC49HG90 *"

    FreeSync 2 was announced a year ago, and there is nothing. That's what they call fake news.
    Have one of those sammy FS 2 monitors now (C32HG70) they where FS2 out the gate, not sure how its fake news. I admit it was a while before we had any available and the pickings are some what slim.

    Have to say it is a nice monitor though at the price it should be.

    I really look forward to building my next rig with a Vega 56... given how long it's going to take to become available at MSRP though I'm probably going to wait until 12nm APUs come out. That way I can have a hypervisor with graphics and do PCI passthrough for the full card and maybe have several gaming VMs running different OSes, since Windows can't be trusted not to trash a bootloader when running updates last I heard.

    That's why KVM won lots of ground over Xen, for example...
    i didn't mean it is harder to do than alternatives. just that someone has to do it

    Can anyone confirm that the 'TearFree' setting accomplishes the same effect of eliminating tearing like FreeSync, minus the adaptive v-sync?

    I ask because I have an RX480 and a ViewSonic XG2401 FreeSync monitor and I'm running Mesa with the TearFree on via a custom /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-amdgpu.conf file:

    Code:
    Section "Device"
         Identifier "RX480"
         Driver "amdgpu"
         Option "DRI" "3"
         Option "TearFree" "on"
     EndSection
    Does TearFree do anything special if you have a FreeSync compatible video card/monitor? Or is it completely separate?

    they are overrated, so it is irrelevant

    Are there patches to optimize the code and have a considerable lines reduction too? I wonder...

    Doubt it, but I guess this is why AMD wants more time to implement Freesync properly in userspace.

    On Windows, Freesync works with games running in borderless window and with video playback in the Windows 10 video app, but it will stick to it's upper limit for normal desktop work, so basically it's disabled. The transition is seamless. Sadly it doesn't work with third party video players. Not that Freesync is super useful for video playback, but I still hope it will work with mpv and others when it comes to GNU/Linux.
