So i bought a new Viotek GN27D monitor.. its a curved 27 inch 1440p monitor with freesync.   I turned freesync on in my monitor settings, and when i went to AMDs drivers its greyed out and says AMD freesync not supported.  Im also using a gold plated 1.2 display port cable as well.  Whats funny is in the main menu of the AMD drivers.. a pop up says you a freesync compatible monitor plugged in, click here to enable freesync..  I click and it brings me to the screen where it says freesync not supported lol

 

Like really ?  Anyone know what the deal here is

 

 

Oh and PC specs are 4790k, 16gb ram, z97 gigabye board, r9 290 tri-x OC..
