Is Freesync enabled in the monitor's OSD, and are you using the connection for which that monitor says FreeSync is supported?
Yes it's enabled in the panel and yes I'm using the proper connection.
I tried the windmill test, it shows freesync enabled, although when i disable vsync i can see tearing.
Tried it, still not working. I've come to the conclusion that freesync doesn't work, even if it did there's very little gain, if at all on a 60hz monitor. I'm gonna return the monitor and maybe look for something with a 144hz refresh rate.
What is the monitor's Freesync range? Some monitors are only able to do it between certain hertz ranges which may be well below the native refresh rate, such as 30-45.
