Just bought a Yashi Pioneer YZ2717, connected to my rx580 with an hdmi 2.0b, currently on 2k 144hz.
I'm having one problem tho, no metter what res, I can't enable freesyn, neither via monitor or drivers.

Am I missing something? My brother have a Samsung C24F396 and freesync work with an hdmi 2.0.

Make sure you are connected to the hdmi2.0 and not one of the 2 1.4 connections. If that's a non issue try the dp connection? Or maybe a dif cable?

If non of the above are issues, make sure you have the option turned on via your monitor menu options.....ie...using the menu on the monitor itself. Once done there return to Radeon settings and turn it on there.

Tried another hdmi, my brother's one with another port, same thing. There's freesync inside the monitor menu, but I can't press on it.
Maybe only works with DP in this monitor?!

There should be 3 hdmi ports. 2 of them are hdmi 1.4 and only 1 is hdmi 2.0. Freesync is not an option for either of the 1.4 ports. It is only available for the DP and hdmi 2.0 ports/connections. If you are connected via the hdmi 1.4 ports, freesync will not be available.

I have 2 free sync monitors, one via DP and the other via HDMI. Both are working.

As i said, depends on the monitor. When freesync first came out and when i got my ultrawide, Freesync only worked on displayport. If his monitor is using an older panel and older board it would only work on dp. Some of these cheaper monitors and manufacturers won't go thru the trouble of making it work on HDMI.

Yep, had a branded DP1.4 cable, should run 4k120+ but could only do 1440p85.
Bought a different brand DP1.2 cable and it runs 1440p165.

Why? Because the DP1.4 was made out of some generic HDMI cable and would not even achieve HDMI2.0 speeds.

Amazon alone is filled with tons of generic no name unknown branded cables.

Club3d cables are expensive and may not be that great either.

At first I was going for a CLUB3D, then I saw one from "KabelDirekt", had all good reviews with 2k 144hz, bought it.
