If freesync is disabled at 120 hz, this option is then useless trash, as it still comes with tearing and doesnt take advantage of lower input lag of Freesync @ 120 Hz when displaying 60fps games.

An additional FYI: Edge still capped at 60hz.

Had hoped to run some tests on the Xbox browser, given going from "Automatic" to "HDMI" input provides a message that monitor features/image quality may decrease. No such luck.

EDGE 120Hz limitation is a separate issue, Microsoft has acknowledged it here in this bug report thread:
https://msedgeportal.trafficmanager.net ... s/7304139/

I have heard back from Todd Riefsteck (point contact at Microsoft) that they are evaluating adding 120Hz to EDGE rAF() but it won't be for a while -- likely a couple of EDGE versions. That was before the Spectre/Meltdown scare, so I'm not sure if they're on track (yet).

Found it interesting that I have only seen one success story for achieving 1440p/120hz, and that's with the CHG70 when selecting 120hz via the monitor UI.

Otherwise, everyone else currently seems to be limited to 1080p/120hz.

I was able to trick Edge to 120fps by using my monitor's "switch refresh rate" button (kind of a real time EDID change), which seems to bypass the hardcoded arbitrary 105fps cap built into Edge.
