      Linux 4.21 is expected to come with FreeSync support. Just in time distributions scheduled to release in late spring. Perfect.

        So with Linux 4.21-rc1 FreeSync should be working out of the box? Is there any documentation on how to configure it? Forcing it for every game etc. Or should it just be working with FreeSync off?

          cRaZy-bisCuiT You probably know already, but you also need the userspace bits, not just the kernel.

            FreeSync needs compositors support for Wayland. So it won't work out of the box.

              Vanvugt needs to land a few merge requests then we get FreeSync on the desktop.

                Thanks! I hope it will be in place for the upcoming Mesa.

                Since there's a lag of non-curved IPS/PVA panel with 144 Hz and 1080p I don't have a monitor anyway. Higher resolutions would stress my system too much.
