Adept I

240Hz FreeSync screen and RX 5700 XT

Hello everyone,

So I changed my graphics card recently, bought RX 5700 XT. I'm using 240Hz FreeSync monitor and I sometimes see stutter, like slowdowns in a Modern Warfare, despite the fact that game FPS counter says 160-180 FPS. Does anybody know if problem with FreeSync and 240Hz are fixed (it's known issue) or maybe I'm better to lock my displays Hz to 144Hz? Does anyone have similar problems? I tried Modern Warfare without FreeSync and it work fine, but Destiny 2 stutters without it noticeably.

Do you have/use any sort of overlay? I have a 240hz Freesync monitor also. See my issue here:

Any kind of Overlay causes monitor HZ to drop in-game. 


I disabled everything, including FreeSync and Modern Warfare works wonderful. Strange thing, Destiny 2 runs bad with RX 5700 XT without FreeSync: Tearing, Stutters and so on, with FreeSync - everything is perfect. AMD drivers, as always.
