so I just bought the Asus MG248Q monitor. I'm really happy with the purchase but I have one question.
Is it possible to enable Lightboost or any motion blur reduction with an AMD card?

I have doublechecked, and you're right.
This is the first time I remember hearing a FreeSync-compatible (Adaptive-Sync) monitor also simultaneously having NVIDIA 3D Vision.
ToastyX StrobeLight definitely WON'T activate it (although it may be able to turn it ON/OFF after initially activated for first time). You'll need to combine ToastyX CRU with various EDID Override Trick / Emitter Tricks of the LightBoost HOWTO. Harder, but it could work.
First try this:
Alternate LightBoost HOWTO #3: ToastyX Custom Resolution Utility
If that fails, try obtaining a 3D glasses kit:
Alternate LightBoost HOWTO #2: If Using 3D Emitter Or Glasses Kit
And then please report back your findings. If it works, I'll update the list to mention MG248Q as a LightBoost-capable monitor. This is a BlurBusters first -- having to make a correction on which monitors are LightBoost-compatible! Previously, it was assumed that any monitor compatible with FreeSync would not be able to incorporate any NVIDIA-based technology. I'm glad I'm wrong though in this case, as the MG248Q appears to be a VESA Adaptive-Sync (compatible with FreeSync) yet incorporates NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 which includes LightBoost (which is a strobe backlight that eliminates motion blur too).

Do I have to change anything in the CRU program?

I am able to achieve activating lightboost, however I'm getting noticable artifacts on my screen - it's almost like it's a flicker tearing and the bottom third of my screen tears just for a few miliseconds or so, and then it does it again after around under a minute. Is this a known issue or have I followed the steps incorrectly??
