FreeSync flickering With RTSS fps Limiter

Post by MrFrankTheRabbit » 26 May 2019, 18:58

Using RTSS Frame limiter with Freesync causes constant flickering. Monitors range is 48-100, it doesn’t matter if I cap the fps to 60, 70, 80, It still flickers (BAD flickering, not normal syncing flickering). When Using AMD FRTC or Nvidia profile inspector (Tried both AMD and Nvidia GPU's) it stops, but frame times are fluctuating too much which causes intermittent flickering. funnily enough I remember using RTSS with freesync a few months ago and there was no flickering, so I’ve tried a few older versions of RTSS. Some have slightly less but it’s still there. Maybe windows update had caused this, I don’t know. Have any of you experienced this issue with freesync or g-sync + RTSS?

Monitor: BenQ EX3501R
GPU: Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 / Evga XC Ultra 2080TI

Never seen this with native g-sync.

Seems like freesync is broken for many vega users. check my freesync broken 2019 thread.

Did you try Radeon Chill with MinFPS == MaxFPS (maybe for example at least 2, 3 or 4 FPS less than Hz of monitor)??

Chill is recommended to use with FreeSync by creator of Chill maybe.

Chill can sometimes reduce input lag maybe. It works different than FRTC. ... e/eeqphae/

I found it here - ... e/eerb61q/

Link to original comment on YouTube can be find here and link to other video about Chill and lower input lag - ... e/eereok4/

Sorry for my English etc. You can just read not my comments from these links above if you want understand Chill better.
