Thanks, I've corrected the link.

My monitor Samsung U28E590D is under supported devices list and refresh rate is 60hz (Radeon 280 card). Crimson drivers state that AMD FreeSync is not supported. Under display OSD settings freesync has been turned on … this worked with preCrimson drivers. Do you have any plans for fixing this?

When you change drivers, you may need to re-enable Freesync.  Do you have any plans of doing this?  If you still can't get it to work, roll back to your drivers that do support it with your hardware, and report the issue.

i have the monitor g2460vq6 with radeon msi gaming r9 270x connected by diplay port 1.2 enable, this GPU support freesync?
