You must set refresh rate on desktop to 90 Hz. And in game if the game has the refresh rate setting.

But the panel is a 144hz.

Why is that? because the standard freesync range is only from 35-90hz? I mean the panel is a 144hz and while doing other stuff than gaming, i would like to take advantage of that nice refresh rate. So setting it to 90hz does not make sense while i understand what you are saying smile.gif

The way i understand the freesync is just that it should activate whenever the FPS dips below 90 FPS.. or am i mistaken? smile.gif

did you try it? working now?

Usually max. freeSync range is max refresh rate of the monitor, which is not the case here. That is why I "hack" freeSync range from 56 to 144 Hz.

Dude, thats an epic setup. I love it.

I am at work so i cannot try it. :/ I also hacked the freerange range to 56-144.. Are you using CRU or a custom driver? i tried going back to the original driver but that didn't change anything..

Ha-Nocri 03-18-2016 12:28 AM

CRU, since it's so easy to do. But resets every-time I install new drivers.

Anyone use this monitor with a console hooked up as well? I know with a 30 fps game it shouldn't be a problem since we're looking at a 33.33ms frame time, but for 60hz capped games its 16.66ms, and tft shows a total lag of 17ms at 60hz, so i'd expect there to be some frame skipping in such a scenario.

After a little research i suspect that RadeonPro could have something to do with it.. i will try to uninstall it when i get home smile.gif

Went ahead and put down an order on one of these threw newegg on the count of the sale, came out to $525. Yeah i use an nvidia card so i cannot use freesync, but with polaris on the way it won't be long until i will get to use it.

Essentially i weighed my options between this and the xb271hu and with this current sale im saving $250 going with the mg279q over the Acer. That's $250 that will go towards a new GPU instead of a monitor that is more or less equal to the asus but uses Gsync instead. The 35-90hz window is rather disappointing when Gsync can work from 30-144hz, but i plan to change it to 57-144hz as i never plan to drop below 60fps in any game ever.

Fingers crossed i don't get backlight bleeding mess, else the lottery begins tongue.gif

I'm picking up mine tomorrow, was originally set on an ultrawide but hen I learned about the MG279Q. My R9 Furies should push that display nicely. I do planon getting 2 more for Eyefinity.
