after looking abit more into it i found my gpu is a
Sapphire.R9270X 4gb memory 1400MHz with 1070MHz core clock
270x is last generation to use GCN 1.0, which isn't compatible with free sync. Using 144hz alone helps with tearing and other things anyways.

That means brand-new cards like the Radeon R9 280, 280X, 270, and 270X won't be FreeSync-capable. Nor will any older Radeons in the HD 7000 and 8000 series. AMD tells us these prior-gen GPUs don't have the necessary support for the latest DisplayPort standard.
