Enabled freesync in monitors OSD and from Crimson. I've also tried 2 different DP cables. No luck!

I tried a few games and still screen tearing when Vsync if off.

If anyone knows a fix for this problem please feel free to share.

I'm under the impression that freesync works regardless of if vsync is enabled or not, but vsync should still cap the maximum to the max Hz on the display.
Or at least that's what it's like on my 290X, have you tried disabling crossfire to see if it makes a difference?

Even with crossfire off there is no difference, the games I tested continue to show screen tearing. I can only solve the tearing problem by enabling Vsync, even on wind mill demo.

Anyway, thanks for the suggestion.

Well bud. If you are using Crimson drivers then I guess you're not aware that you CAN'T disable crossfire at all. Game profiles do not disable crossfire. That setting is hopelessly broken and has been since the very first Crimson driver. So in reality you still don't know if its because of crossfire or not.

I can though. That is because I am running a hybrid Crimson/Catalyst installation. Basically I installed Crimson 16.1 then opened the installation package for Catalyst 15.11.1 and only installed the Catalyst Control Center. Manually creating application profiles in the CCC is the only true method of disabling crossfire on the 295X2.

Sounds like that's what I'll have to do when i put my 295x2 back in redface.gif

I also tested with Catalyst 15.7. Same results.

Thank you anyway.

I wouldn't be testing with one of the first drivers to support Freesync if I were you. I don't even remember if the 15.7 even had crossfire freesync support yet.

Edit: 15.7 was the very first driver to "support" Freesync crossfired.

Well I have the same monitor that you do except instead of using freesync I opted instead to use AMA High, Blur Reduction ON, AREA 100 then I installed the BenQ ICC profile and calibrated the colors according to the review at http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/benq_xl2730z.htm Lastly I went into the AMD driver and cranked up the color saturation on the monitor to my liking. I saved all of those settings to profile 1 on the puck for easy switching. Those are my settings for CS:GO and they function to great effect. Despite not running freesync or vsync the game looks buttery freakin smooth at 250+ FPS running on a single GPU.

What game do you experience this in? I might be able to give it a try with freesync enabled if I have it.

For example, world of warcraft.
I rolled my drivers backward and it looks better now. Will wait till the next crimson update and see how it is.. thumb.gif
