Another topic about 21:9 VSR support. AMD, are you serious!?

Hey there! After buying new 21:9 super-duper FreeSync monitor to play Escape from Tarkov (still no AA), I recognize that I cant normally do it, because of VSR support for 21:9 is missing for years by AMD! Found info that some beta driver was able to VSR for 21:9, but in further releases it was cut off! Found many topics on this forum, where AMD support says that "they working on it" or so, but they saying it for five years now on!

AMD, can you say already WHEN? Or just admit that it was false promises!

P.S. Really sorry for my bad English.

Hey I get your frustration. I don't know why they don't have it fixed. Some claim it never worked but others know there was at least one beta driver it did work on. This is certainly not the only issue falling through the cracks for far too long.

I gotta wonder 2 things though.

a: Why a monitor maker makes a 21:9 Freesync monitor with known support issues.

b: Why you bought it knowing support issues. If 21:9 was still an issue for me after all this time I would have just gone with a solution that is known to work.

Still definitely doesn't excuse AMD not getting this working. When it's obvious from all the test done over at guru3d it is absolutely hardware supported but the drives don't they even had a registry hack to get it working but the latest Windows 10 1709 killed that. That may even be why AMD doesn't focus on a fix for this. Maybe too many variable changing on the MS side of things. But it wouldn't take much for AMD to answer what is the current state of things. I don't see where they have done that in quite a while.

Good luck!

a: how is that a monitor issue? or do you mean Freesync to be the flawed technology?

b: you surely meant to ask why buy AMD, right? That's a good question, because Nvidia seems to have no issue with it.


According to many things I have read that aspect ratio has never been properly supported. And I asked why you would buy it because from the way I read what you said it sounded like you knew that aspect ration was an issue before you bought it. It may be a translation thing though. Good luck!


I'm not OP. Thing is, nobody would even think this is an issue, at least not in 2018. After all, It's relatively simple math. Aside from that fact, ultrawides are actually very common and a lot of games have no issue supporting it, and when even the games support it, how does a GPU manufacturer developing technologies, not?


I wish I knew. I know they have issues with 4:3 as well.
