Acer XF270HU 1440 IPS 144 Hz Adaptive Sync Thread - Page 76

post #751 of 807
Finally got some time with my monitor and I love it! No dead or stuck pixels. There is a small amount of either IPS glow or backlight bleed that I notice on a completely black screen in a dark room, but that's the only time I see it. Freesync is pretty amazing too. Very happy customer!

I do have one small problem with Freesync though. I'm having issues with it in Dragon Age Inquisition. When I enable the on screen display to monitor the refresh rate of the monitor it is really jumping around like crazy. Most of the time, it will hover between 50 and 70 fps. However, periodically it will start jumping all over the place so fast that I can't even read it. When this happens the gameplay starts stuttering very noticeably. This is the only game I've noticed it in but I'm a complete noob to Freesync and gaming monitors so I'm not sure how to correct it. Anyone have any advice?

I'm guessing you are going below the freesync range which is causing it to disable temporarily. I think the range is 40-144Hz, if you go below 40 frames it will stutter as a result of freesync turning off.

I wondered if that wasn't the case. I'll try turning down a couple of settings and see if that helps. Thank you

Hello

How to check use time?
post #755 of 807
I haven't seen a way to check the use time. I looked through all the menus in the OSD and didn't see anything. Sorry!

That's ok

LFC, (low framerate compensation) means that freesync will not turn off below 40 anymore. It must be something else causing the issue.

Does anyone have anything to add after using their XF270HUA for a while? Would you still recommend it?

Seeing all the complaining about BLB, dead pixels and possible overdrive issues is a bit off-putting. If I've understood everything correctly the overdrive issues were blown out of proportion and was possibly something that affected early revisions of the XF270HU? It was confirmed to be an issue affecting the earliest revisions of the XG270HU and was later resolved through firmware updates.

When Freesync is enabled the overdrive setting is greyed out and it defaults to either "Freesync" or "Normal". Does the overdrive setting become available again when disabling Freesync in the AMD CCC?

When you drop below the threshold it doubles the refresh rate, IIRC. So if you are going in and out of it you'd be jumping from 41 to 80 (when you hit 40) and back. Would only happen if it's going in and out. If you stayed above or just very briefly dip below it should be as bad.

At least I think that's what happens. Not claiming to be an expert. 😀

I would also like to know what you guys think now in 2017.
