    "This is a bit late, FastSync works in most things now, hardly an upgrade for me."

    I boot up Rise of the Tomb Raider and FastSync is not working, and the driver update is a full week away. :mad:

    I liked it better when I never payed attention at all and therefore didn't notice the increased input lag.

    I haven't seen anyone really have a proper answer, but will this support Freesync over HDMI? My monitor clearly supports it, but no word by Nvidia if it'll be DP exclusive like GSync.

    My guess is most likely no. I'm just hoping that the newly enthused community of VRR enthusiasts will find a way to not only do the manual toggle in the NVCP, but to be able to use screens that have HDMI through a registry tweak or using something like CRU. Keeping my fingers crossed and looking forward to testing and seeing what people come up with now that the floodgates have been opened a good bit.

    Linus's new video says that it doesn't support HDMI. Got my answer.

    Isn't that the whole point of it? Almost every new TV that comes out this year will support VRR over HDMI. So yeah, i'm sure it's supported. :)

    Give what a rest? Quoting actual references, rather than just spraying rumours around? I think if anyone needs to give it a rest is you and other 980Ti owners who just don't want to admit the reality.

    The whole point of the certification is to indicate the functionality WILL work on those certain monitors. The difference isn't 'automatically enabled vs having to enable it manually', the difference is 'Will work vs may not work'. As it stands, they tested 400 monitors; it may not work on 388 of them

    Indeed. I saw this and lost some hope. I still wonder what the community at large can do.
    You would think so, but apparently not yet. They haven't ruled out HDMI in the future. Do you have a Freesync or VRR TV you can test this stuff out on the 15th? I will be.

    Your reality?


    Ps any monitor out there has only @dp1.2 even the most fancy free sync 2 with hdr and all bells and whistles.


    I will let you know personally on 15th, you can count on that.

    Not my reality, The reality of the standard itself, which requires _VBLANK attribute. This attribute was announced as part of DP1.2a. What I am quoting is what VESA provides. What you are quoting is what manufacturer writes on their product. And Manufacturer can very well write 1.2 FreeSync instead of 1.2a, which would convey the same message but just for all the non-technical people to understand it.

    I hope that helps.

    Ok, I stand corrected.. I totally forgot about this firmware.

    I already updated my gpu - 980TI DP firmware to 1.4 a long time ago, so problem solved before it started. ;)

    LFR is a function of the display in collab with the driver, if the display doesn't do it, the driver won't make a difference.

    Wrong. Graphics card decides if it will send same image twice or not. Monitor has no say in it because monitor does not know (and has no way of knowing) real fps you are getting in game/playback on your PC.

    How limited imagination one needs to not understand it?

    Wrong.

    LFR requires scaler support.

    I thought I'd read that LFR can be done on either the Monitor as is some cases or the GPU. Not sure if there is a difference.

    No, it doesn't.

    One of the first 1440p IPS FreeSync monitors, the ASUS MG278Q, ships with a 35-90Hz refresh rate range.

    LFC did not even exist back then.

    When AMD implemented LFC in their drivers, that monitor was supported due to the 2.5x spread.
    https://www.amd.com/Documents/freesync-lfc.pdf

    People were also able to modify that refresh rate range via CRU, often to 57-144Hz, which is a 2.5x spread that also allowed LFC to work .

    There had been no change to the monitor's scaler.

    What does that say about scaler support being required?
