    FreeSync On or AMD Optimized ?


      I've noticed that since Adrenalin , there is an option to have AMD FreeSync On , Off or AMD Optimized . My question is : What's the difference between AMD Optimized and On , and which should i use ?

          This is from AMD Support concerning your question: How to Enable Radeon™ FreeSync™


          Adjusting Radeon FreeSync Within Individual Application Profiles

          Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 17.12.1 introduced a new feature that allows Radeon™ FreeSync™ to be adjusted on a per application profile basis.

          For more information on how to add an application profile to Radeon Settings, please refer to article: Creating Application Profiles.

          Once the profile has been created there are three options to adjust Radeon FreeSync for the application, which are:

            • AMD Optimized – This is the default option which will automatically select the optimal Radeon FreeSync setting (On/Off).
            • On – Enables Radeon FreeSync.
            • Off – Disables Radeon FreeSync

          Note! Radeon FreeSync can only be adjusted on a per application basis if the AMD FreeSync option is set to On within the Display menu.  For more information on enabling Radeon FreeSync, please see the section above: Enabling Radeon FreeSync™ in Radeon™ Settings.Follow the steps below to adjust Radeon™ FreeSync™ on a per application basis.1.       Open Radeon Settings.
