in future to utilize FreeSync.
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?
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.
