Hey guys

 

my Laptop is the A10-9630P Version of the inspiron 5576 with an RX 560

 

Okay so basically, when i was running the official Dell drivers ( which is basically a repackaged installer for AMD APU Laptop drivers 17.7 ) freesync was supported at a range of 40-60 and ran without even the slightest issue.

 

I was able to turn off V-Sync and i could tell freesync was active because tearing was gone.

 

Now that i have installed the latest APU Driver for the A10-9630P from the AMD website, i made sure it was the correct selection, the AMD Control panel reports that freesync is not supported and i have no idea why, when this laptop is a freesync display.

 

This may not matter to some people, but from my experience playing a game below 60 FPS , this feature is a lifesaver and the difference between lag and a buttery smooth experience.

 

And before anyone ask's, yes i did a clean install on both driver packages 17.7 and 18.2.1 in which i used the AMD Cleaning utility, and DDU in safemode to make sure their was no registry issue's or left over files, even used CCleaner each time before installing the packages.
