Re: Does Freesync work on Windows 7 with Radeon graphics cards?

After watching the video and looking at the description, that driver is meant to increase the refresh rate to 144Hz from 90Hz, not to address Freesync working in Windows 7. It also doesn't mention what video card is being used. "My easy to use guide will show you how to unlock the 90hz cap on the As...

Does Freesync work on Windows 7 with Radeon graphics cards?

I know Nvidia limited Freesync on their cards to Windows 10 but I can't really find much about AMD. I saw a post that said WDDM 2.0 is required for Freesync to work which is only available on Windows 10. I currently only have Nvidia cards but would be interested in getting an AMD card to have Window...

Might be noticing a very brief Freesync artifact on Alienware aw2521hf

I know there are reports of the Alienware aw2521hf monitor having black outs with Freesync using an Nvidia graphics card but I have not experienced those with my setup. I have a 1050 ti, 8700k, and 32gb of ram. However, I have noticed something different that is hard to describe and I'm not sure if ...

Can't achieve a flat frame time graph in RTSS in many emulators with Freesync

I was under the impression that Freesync would "just work" with emulators (at least MAME and Retroarch) but, according to RTSS's frame time graph, that doesn't seem to be the case. In MAME for example, if I try the game Galaxian with RTSS's frame time graph enabled, there will be consistent, slight ...

Re: Eye strain problem

You should go and get your eyes checked. You probably need glasses prescribed. I see an optometrist about once a year and wear glasses. He's never found anything wrong. It makes sense to me that a higher contrast image would result in more eye fatigue, especially when browsing the internet. I guess...

Re: Eye strain problem

Does the new monitor have higher contrast? If yes, then it's normal that there appears to be "glow" when viewing black text on a bright background. Limited color range is producing a more "washed out" image on full range displays. In other words, it lowers contrast. I would recommend switching back...

Re: Eye strain problem

Okay, I've bought a different monitor (Alienware AW2521H) because reviews said that it had a grainy coating. I think it definitely helps, especially when viewing all white screens like Google search. These screens would be blinding on the Gigabyte M27Q. However, I still noticed that white text on a ...

Re: RTSS Scanline Sync HOWTO

You can also use the new RTSS horizontally-scrolling bar to calibrate RTSS Scanline Sync. I need to update the HOWTO based on the new version. I've tried reading the main thread about it on Guru3D but it's very confusing. Apparently there is something new called Front-Edge sync that is better? Do a...

Re: Eye strain problem

So I'm now having pretty bad eye strain with a new monitor I got: Gigabyte M27Q. According to reviews, it doesn't use PWM, but it does have anti-glare coating. After adjusting every option I could adjust like Brightness, Contrast, Color Temperature, Black Equalizer and Low Blue Light, it still is ha...

Re: Eye strain problem

^ ok, so u don't think it was the anti-glare coating after all? I'm desperate to find the culprit cause I can't afford to try different monitors...Currently I'm having difficulty returning the monitor as it technically has no manufacturing defect...However I did notice the thing about the colors be...
