I have checked my download Folder and have seen that I have started with 17.8.2 on my Vega64.
I did a roll back to that Version and now Freesync works again. So the unsupported state must have happened with one of the versions afterwards.
Now I am a bit courious. I have downloaded the windmill tool and TimeDX5. And from what I can see is that FreeSync is apparently not working. Although AMD Driver says it is enabled, there is a lot of flickering in the Tools.
If I enable V-Sync on Windmill Pictures is fine. If I am enable Freesync it is like the Picture without Sync.
Could it be that Crimson 17.11.1 Reports the truth, that Freesync is not working?
When I see strange behavior like this, I always use DDU to clean the old drivers, and then re-install the current drivers. Also, make sure that the monitor has freesync enabled. Maybe even toggling it off then on might get the drivers to see it correctly.
Thanks for your Reply.
Uninstalled with DDU and reinstalled 17.11.1 - Freesync not supported.
Disabled and Enabled in Monitor Settings - still not supported
Further help much appreciated
So installing from 17.8.2 to 17.11.1 Freesync is not supported again
17.8.2 Freesync shows as enabled but Tests with the windmill tool I come to the conclusion it is not working
17.11.1 Freesync Show as not supported and is not working either
same here. I got a Eizo Foris FS2735 and it seems that Freesync is no longer supportet.
If i install 17.9.3 Crimson driver, Freesysnc is supportet again (didnt test it, but driver shows support).
I changend only drivers.
So it seems it is a driver issue.
XFX Vega 56
Eizo Foris Fs2735 via Displayport cable
Windows 7 64 bit
it looks like complete the same. I would be courious if Freesync is working on your rig with 17.9.3 or if it only shows that it is enabled
Btw I have Windows10 64bit
you are right. The windmill demo and 17.9.3 driver, Freesync is not working (it shows enabled).
In DCS world 2.1 it seems to work. but I can not confirm that.
It is confusing.
In the EIZO config i disabled Blur reduction, but no difference. Then i disabled Overdrive in Eizo. Nope.
Windmill shows me no Freesync.
So maybe freesync is broken by AMD or the windmill test does not work properly or/and the Radeon Crimson shows wrong results..
I have no idea what to do.
Ha, at least I am not the only one.
I have tested it with another tool as well, which is called TimeDX5 which shows flickering as well. If I Interpret it right and use the tool correctly, I would understand that Freesync is not working at all, although it shows enabled on 17.8.2
But maybe there is another way to test it?
I have no idea either
does anyone have a clue what to do? Is there anyone from AMD I can Approach with this Topic?
