    Well i wasn't sure if my Freesync was broken, but having followed the tip about setting scaling at 100% just before I turned the pc off this morning, I swear desktop icons and text in general looks crisper!

    Give that forum member a cookie!:invasion:

    This looks like a favorable discovery. I would follow suit.

    Nevertheless, I must testify my ReLive FreeSync failures only occurred in Resident Evil Revelations 2, Resident Evil 5 & Resident Evil 6. Could Crapcom's game engine be guilty, if any?

    Eventually, I started playing Dead Space 3 & Alien Isolation. FreeSync simply worked there.

    EDIT: Cough! Isn't 100% scaling the default? I never messed with that value. So this "fix" has nothing to do with me.

    Complete FreeSync failure after Windows 10 Creators Update. #Alien Isolation

    RSCRE 17.4.2.

    Edit:

    I found out Windows 10 Creators Update rolled me back to Crimson 16.6 without my knowledge! Outrageous.

    The ReLive tab is still present though. Weird.

    Do a clean installation with DDU. The Creators update also made RadeonPro not to work in fullscreen any more with a lot of games.

    Absolutely. Now I'm back in business.:)

    Spoiled by FreeSync, I can now proclaim myself able to find the traces of screen tearing at static 144 Hz.:infinity:

    Hasn't RadeonPro sunk a long time ago since its engineer abandoned the project in 2013?

    SMAA 1x Ultra and Dynamic V-sync were my favorite RP features.

    If AMD is not going to fix this problem by June, going to talk to a Lawyer myself, friend did that today & Lawyer said it's in our right as consumers if a product is not working like it should, in our case only some games run Freesync but before 16.11.5 all games was running Freesync then we got a lawsuit incoming.

    Have you tried filing a bug report first?

    The guy who you're speaking to runs a nVidia GPU. He was just giving advice.

    I filed a bug report to AMD but only received an automated email from them afterward. The AMD Gaming Facebook administrator turned a blind eye to anything I wrote.

    AMD customer care sucks. I'm just grateful FreeSync's working, for now.

    If I had deeper pockets, I'd be better off with nVidia. Sadly I did not.

    Freesync still working After creators update, 17.3 drivers, and 100% scaling force when using 3840x1600@70hz and Freesync still works. Its a lot easier to tell if it works in game when downsanpling and your fps below and Hz.

    It still works for pretty much everything actually.

    Update 1: Go to the Game exe & press right mouse then go to Compatibility then Disable Full Screen Optimizations & click ok.

    So far Shadow of Mordor is now working again with Freesync by doing that.

    Is there an equivalent for that in Windows 7? There's only:

    Disable visual themes
    Disable desktop composition
    Disable display scaling on high DPI settings.

    The third one is ticked by default.

    Nobody gives warranties for software, and no software is ever covered by warranty. You'll be losing your time and money.

    Think about this, you buy a new Nvidia GPU that cost a lot, the game start to crash & BSOD a lot. NVidia say a firmware update is coming in a upcoming drivers later on. NVidia push out drivers for 5 months & no firmware update in the drivers to fix the GPU problem.

    NVidia know the issues but not doing anything about it. that the same thing with AMD Freesync. AMD know about the problem, they not doing nothing to fix it. people buying those Freesync monitors & it's not working in the new drivers.

    I test some games in 17.4.3 & Freesync only working in some games not all like 16.11.5 Hotfix. so something is wrong when 16.11.5 driver work in all but not in 17.x.x builds.

    You can't actually split the gpu hardware from the drivers. Without the drivers the gpu will not work as advertised (it say dx12 support but without drivers there will be no dx12 for example).

    We're getting into actual lawyer territory here, where none of us has the depth to go, I believe.

    Still, you would have to prove that they know your specific issue, and then prove that they didn't do anything to rectify it. Your case TheDukeSD is different, since it would fall under false advertisement for a whole product line. The Freesync issue is an acknowledged bug that they seem to be working on.

    If anyone has any law experience, it would be interesting to hear what they have to say.

    FreeSync is both a hardware and software feature of the drivers and of the monitor, so yes it is covered by consumer protection. You would have to complain to the hardware manufacturer who would kick it back to AMD. When the manufacturer complains, then AMD would take it seriously.

    Thank You someone get it, Free sync is both hardware & software. if software don't work then it's a problem. I did a chat with a LG Agent about Free sync problem. LG Agent said the monitors from all company's are working like they should & the problem rest with AMD & there drivers for not letting Free sync run on the latest drivers.

    LG Agent said this is a problem AMD need to fix fast because it's causing problem for LG & other company's due of people are not happy with there products. other company's like ASUS, LG, Dell, Samsung can take action & sue AMD if costumers sue company's like LG, ASUS, Dell, Samsung & so on.
