In the Radeon Settings VSR is not available to enable. But AMD says that VSR would be available for my graphics card (Radeon R9 290X).
A solution or a work-aorund would be awesome to have.
What is the monitor model and how is it connected to the graphics card ?
What is the monitors native resolution/refresh rate and what resolution/refresh rate do you currently have it set to ?
I have a LG 27MP65 (i think) and graphics card is (as in title) a Radeon R9 290X by MSI. The monitor is 1920x1080@60Hz.
Connected via HDMI and it's set up natively.
There are many models with LG 27MP65 in the title, but there are a couple of alphabets at the end of the model number.
What is the complete model number - you should be able to find it on a sticker at the back of the monitor.
But does it really matter which monitor I have? I thought the graphics card would compute in higher resolution and then downscale the result to transmit it to the monitor downscaled in 1080p.
I'm looking into it but this is what our VSR FAQ says:
While we have attempted to support as many resolutions as possible with our Virtual Super Resolution technology, please be aware that not all resolutions are supported on all products.
If your Graphics Product supports Virtual Super Resolution, the Virtual Super Resolution feature will only appear as a selectable option within the AMD Catalyst Control Center if the current display resolution is set to an appropriate “Target Display Timing”. Please see the chart below for Target Display Timings and Supported VSR Modes that are available on most products. Again, “Supported VSR Modes” may vary from what is indicated the chart depending on the Graphics Product you are using.
Can you try connecting the monitor via DP or DVI if possible and see if that changes anything ?
Try using an older Catalyst driver too, you can download Catalyst 15.11.1 Beta here.
I will try this later. But I would prefer using crimson due performance inprovements.
In your suggested version I can not find the VSR option so it's not available. So the driver itself is not the problem...
Via DP is not possible beacuse the monitor does not have DP. I have an other monitor connected via DVI which has the same resolution, refresh rate and panel as my first screen but VSR is not supported on this neither.
Meanwhile I noticed that my Radeon Settings only indicate that I have "AMD Radeon R9 200 Series" Graphics Card. The specific 290X isn't mentioned anywhere though my CPU is labeled perfectly.
this is normal to just see series not exact GPU.
I guessed... Although a friend sees the exact GPU, so I thoguht the settings are not unlocking VSR option because of this.
A workaround would help me too (like some option to change in registry).
