However, my findings are that when you tab out the game or drop it to desktop & then go back into the game, usage goes to full and the game runs as it should do?
Disable and then enable Gsync. (I'm using windowed and fullscreen fine).
Don't adjust anything other then textures in the Global settings. Make any game adjustments to the individual game itself. This includes preferred refresh rate, leave it highest in global and adjust on each game if you want it app controlled.
I leave Vsync on at the global level. In batman if I switch it to off at the program settings tab it causes the issue you mentioned. I can't remember if I tested app controlled or not. Left at on it doesn't have the issue.
I'm using driver 358.59, but, it seems to be about the same for both versions of the driver. It is Gsync wonkyness.
*This really threw me for a loop at first, but, I've got it figured out now luckily. It's a pain but you should be able to get it working correctly without having to alt-tab out.Edited by Chargeit - 10/29/15 at 10:53am
