390, freesync & Screen tearing

So I have a i5 6600k @ 4.5 ghz, 16gm 2400 ram and a r9 390.


I use a U28E590 and like to game at 1440p. Now the 390 gets between 40-60fps on everygame I play at 1440 with a mix of medium/high settings.


Issue is, I get screen tearing 100% of the time..on every game I play, even below 60fps. To avoid this, I have to enable vsync as well as freesync. Is this normal?


Trying to figure out the issue here. Isn't the point of freesync to prevent tearing and also help with the input lag? Should both be enabled? Getting a little confused here.
