New monitor IPS VRR, with 75fps minimums

Talk about AMD's FreeSync and VESA AdaptiveSync, which are variable refresh rate technologies. They also eliminate stutters, and eliminate tearing. List of FreeSync Monitors.

New monitor IPS VRR, with 75fps minimums

Post by ballzley » 04 Jul 2020, 03:25

Hey BB,

I just got done with my G-Sync build's monitor, but now need to look into a FreeSync monitor for an AMD build that hits ~75fps minimum in its games. Can you recommend some 1080p IPS VRR FreeSync monitors best for supporting 75-200fps range? Games are mostly FPS and other shooters. We are very excited to have our first VRR monitors.

I have read the G-sync 101 articles and various posts here in FreeSync, and assume the same G-sync 101 rules apply to FreeSync (-2fps limit below max hz of monitor in-game or in RTSS [-3fps cap]; V-sync enabled in Radeon control center; V-sync disabled in-game; monitor FreeSync on)

:)

edit: I ended up grabbing the Dell aw2521hfl

My recommendation is actually a minimum of -3 FPS for both in-game and external limiters across the board. As for AMD FreeSync specifically, since the AMD CP V-SYNC option is only known to work mostly for OpenGL games (to my knowledge), you'd instead want to filp the G-SYNC recommendation, and use AMD CP V-SYNC off + in-game V-SYNC on.

Hi jorimt! glad to have you chime in on method. Will do V-Sync on in-game. If in-game has an FPS limiter already, should I still use RTSS external program to limit FPS too?
