That's no problem at all, I am probably going to be trading my GTX 980 for a 390X so I wont be spending any money on the GPU really. And then I will upgrade to Polaris when it comes! smile.gif Money also is not really an issue for me at the moment ^^

I'm also interested in buying this monitor, mainly due it's good price here in Poland compared to Acer X34 and Asus PG348q.
Currently I have 980Ti but I can consider switching to red side wink.gif in future to utilize FreeSync.

Few questions:
What happens on screen when fps drop below FreeSync limit? Anything worse than just normal tearing?
Is this transition between FreeSync on/off very noticeable?
And... is there any chance that some software update will lower this 55hz limit?

You can actually mod the FreeSync on this monitor fairly easy to be able to handle 35-75Hz instead of 55-75Hz FreeSync range smile.gif It litetally only takes a couple of mouse clicks and you are done, just need a program on your PC wink.gif

Odpowiedziałbym po polsku ale że to angielskie forum to:

When FPS drop below FreeSync range you just get standard no adaptive sync refresh, so it backs to normal simply.

Of course transition is noticeable. If it wasn't then it would mean that FreeSync does nothing. It depends on what framerate you get this transition. If on 55, then maybe it won't be much painful because 55 FPS is still smooth, but if drop from for example 40 FPS FreeSync to 39 FPS non FreeSync, it will be very painful. At least this is how people describe it, I am also on 980 Ti so I cannot test it yet.

I have covered everything about increasing FreeSync range limit in 'Expanding FreeSync Rage' in original post.

Generally I am in the same position, got 34UC98 because of great price in Poland, and now planning to switch to AMD card to utilize FreeSync and 75 Hz. I hope for rumors about 980 Ti performance Polaris 10 to be true, because waiting for Vega to 2017 doesn't sound good. Maybe not at $300 price range, but price doesn't matter much really, on whatever price it comes, it will determine used 980 Ti prices, they will have to be a bit cheaper than new performance equivalent card.

Ok now I have read several threads of people complaining about the monitor blacking out (losing signal) and then coming right back after a couple of seconds when playing games while utilizing FreeSync.

So I was wondering, the people on here who have bought either the 34UC88 or the 34UC98 monitor, what are your experiences with the monitor? Have you experienced anything like this? And if so, what is your GPU setup? Using the latest GPU drivers?

I actually picked up the 34UC88 four days ago and have not had any issue with the monitor loosing signal.

I'm using two R9 290x's, 16.3 drivers, Freesync is enabled.

By the way, what do you have your preferred color depth set to in the AMD Control Panel?
