How to run freesync on amdgpu-pro 16.50?

I'm on Linux Mint  18.1 with amdgpu-pro-16.50-362463 successfully installed. (The new one with Freesync Support)

My question is: How do I go about using freesync?

I got this command from Phoronix: xrandr --output DisplayPort-0 --set "freesync" 1

I don't get any messages after entering this command in the terminal.

But when I play a game such as the Witcher 2 my Acer XG270HU monitor reports in the OSD a constant 144hz, which means it's not working.

I have a Sapphire R9 Fury Tri-X OC and the aforementioned Acer monitor.

I'm on the 4.4.0-53-generic kernel which seems to work fine otherwise.

Any help would be much appreciated!
