FreeSync Disabled In Fallout 4

Freesync does not work with Fallout 4 specifically.


Operating System:

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update


i5 6600k


DDR4 16 GBs


R9 390

Nixeus VUE24A




Freesync doesn't work. At all. I have videos of my display's OSD to prove this. Oddly enough, Freesync was working in Windows 10 Build 16299.15 for me, though others reported it still wasn't working for them. Then Windows updated to Build 16299.19 and Freesync stopped working again, reverting to the same issue I've been experiencing for months regardless of GPU drivers or game settings.


All other games utilize Freesync without much issue. Specifically Fallout 4 refuses to work.

I don't know if this is purely an issue with AMD drivers, or if it's purely an issue with Windows 10, or if it's a little of both. But PLEASE look into it. I bought this monitor to play FO4 with Freesync and it hasn't worked properly since the day I got it. It's nice that other games work fine, but Fallout 4 is stuttery and generally not smooth without Freesync.
