    This which has been working for yrs, AMD frame limiter has and probably will always have to many dependencies/issues.

    Shadow of mordor will give me the option to use some VSR resolutions (two of them) but I can't find VSR in the catalyst panel or use it in the desktop.

    Also only works in shadow of mordor, every other game I've tried won't show the extra resolutions.

    The limits on refresh rate on VSR are whack. With the software "hack" implementation I can run them all at 140Hz.

    The hardware scaler chip solution is rubbish.

    So is there any difference between previously registry modded VSR and this one through ccc? Is this now hardware VSR?

    Why Max resolution in VSR 2560x1440. R9 280x. Monitor - 1920x1080 60Hz.

    Do you have higher resolutions over DP?

    Of course something is done to a video stream or any other already done content when we upscale or downscale it.

    I know downscaling sound similar to downsampling but it's not the same, it's quite a different thing.

    For a video stream like a cable TV (or dvb,bluray) or any other already created content:

    Upscaling a video source is a one step image processing where we get already done content and extrapolate his pixels to fill the pixels of a higher resolution image.

    No quality gain.

    Donwnscaling a video source is a one step image processing where we get already done content and interpolate his pixels to fill a lower resolution image.

    No quality gain.

    Downsampling a PC video game is a two steps image process where we ALWAYS generate (create) the content (image) at a high arbitrary resolution and then we interpolate his pixels to get rid of jaggies in the image interpolating his pixels to fill a lower resolution.

    The result of this process is better image than a simple generation of an image with a matching resolution with the monitor we use.

    Quality gain.

    I.E. In a PC video game we can generate (create) a content (image) of 1080p for a monitor with 1080p native resolution. (case 1)

    If we generate (create) a content (image) a 4K image and then downscale it to 1080p the result is an higher quality image than the image of the case 1, been both 1080p images because we get rid of jaggies.

    It's a brute force Anti-Aliasing.

    :)

    The issue is only seen with VSR enabled, i.e when running games at 2560x1600 (max settings 8xAA). If at all the gpu load should be more than when running on native 1920x1200 (which does not have this issue).

    Also, what is the purpose of FRTC? Can we not just use Vsync and that will limit the frame rate to 60 anyway? (on 60Hz monitor). Is it for scenarios where we have Vsync turned off? Does it prevent tearing?

    Thanks to help to clarify this nonsense about an improved video stream via VSR.

    My grammar and fluency in English is still subpar.

    Maybe VSR could also improve it.

    :D

    FRTC and VSync are disabled, but FPS is locked to 60. How to fix that? :(

    This is PowerPlay in action, a "smart" AMD "feature" who saves electricity by lowering your core timing WHILE playing at the expense of the gameplay experience.

    LOL

    You can disable it via an Afterburner option:

    Unofficial overclocking mode: "without PowerPlay support".

    Is there anybody with a 7000 series or R9 200 series card with GCN 1.0, that has VSR higher than 2560*1440 no matter the connection you use to the monitor? Does anyone get the higher resolution?

    ok will try it.
    Just odd that it is only happening when using VSR and not when in native resolution
