FreeSync Optimization

Question asked by nepalii on Apr 6, 2018

Hello, first post here and hoping to get some constructive help. I have a Sapphire Nitro R9 Fury and I'm running it stock (1050mhz/500mhz), undervolted to 1120mV. I also have a Acer XG270HU FreeSync monitor and I was hoping anyone could help me find the smoothest possible settings.

 

I have been using FreeSync with FRTC enabled at 144FPS but I have read on reddit from Robert from AMD that using FRTC with FreeSync is not a good idea. Here is the link: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/4ypw5k/freesync_is_so_fcking_awesome/d6zl13v/?st=jfnhmqzg&sh=8eaf7139

 

I want to enable a FPS cap so my GPU isn't stressed too much but I am trying to find the solution that will minimize latency as much as possible. Robert recommends using FreeSync + Vsync but wouldn't Vsync add input lag/latency when it kicks in? I tried using Enhanced Sync + FreeSync but my FPS was uncapped. It seems Enhanced Sync does nothing with FreeSync. The last option I can think of is to enable in-game FPS limiter. Would this be the lowest input latency option to cap my FPS?

 

If anyone could help me out, I would really appreciate it. Thank you...
