Description of Original Problem: I've been trying to figure out how to use freesync without adrenaline software.
Troubleshooting: I've tried searching around online and everyone keeps saying that it is enabled automatically, but that does not seem to be the case. I can tell when Freesync is activating from the OSD on my monitor and comparing it with a FPS counter. There was a setting I saw in Windows 10 about variable refresh rate, but enabling it doesn't seem to do anything. I've also confirmed that Freesync is enabled in the monitor settings itself.
Why can't you just download Adrenaline software?
Adrenaline causes system stability issues with driver timeouts that I don't really experience with the driver only install. I have done somethings that helped mitigate it, but the system seems to crash eventually with adrenaline.
In that case, I can't help you since I don't even own a free sync monitor.
I can confirm that Freesync is enabled on my monitor and I'm using Displayport, but Freesync is not being activated. I can tell from the OSD overlay that measures my refresh rate.
