    hey guys I've seen a lot of drama because this monitor has heavy flickering issues with freesync(with polaris and older cards) , and having bought it for my rx470 i can say its true, any eta on driver or firmware that reverts to a normal operation with freesync enabled?

    Hey man, how are you?, yes im on 17.8.1, and i can reproduce:

    =( i guess i have to wait for another driver update. the brightness strobing is just a deal breaker to have freesync enabled.

    I read somewhere that no driver can help, this is VA panel thingy and happens with nvidia/gsync models too. VA is generally slow and in order to make response faster they use overdrive, but it has different settings depending on the refresh rate. So variable refresh rate tech triggers the different settings and it is visible as flickering.

    Great, THX
    Sometimes we need to wait (unfortunatellY) :oops:

    Try to use FS in games that don't brake visual....
    and wait until they fix this unoying pesky problem :)

    Also you try and install CCC from 15.11 ->

    Install only CCC -> they look into Settings there :cool:
    I have this installed with 17.8.1 so it will work NP

    Hello, with this particular model your information is not correct, There is evidence that Vega does not have the issues, yet Polaris does. Id like to share you the video

    So yes its seems its a driver issue or a polaris hardware fault. lets just hope is a driver issue.

    Thank you, i will just turn off FS until further notice, lets hope its a driver issue with this fairly new panel, i miss my aoc 2640pf worked like a charm, BUT yes this monitor does offer better colors.
