Any software to test freesync?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, how are you?

I am going to try the driver hack to increase the freesync range on my display.

But I need to establish a baseline for the standard setting and then test the new driver.

Is there any software or benchmark that allows to test if freesync is working and at what refresh?

 

Thanks.

Cheers!

You can also find a link in AMD's forum https://community.amd.com/thread/180553 to the AMD Windmill demo. 

(not sure if I'm allowed to link to the download or not)

Something very strange. 

I am running Crimson 16.2.

Freesync enabled in the driver. 

But on the windmill demo, I only have the option of 55 fps... 

What is wrong?

I don't know, since I've never used it at all, but I think it's supposed to be at a non-native refresh rate and you're supposed to see if there's tearing at all. Load it up, set it up at 55fps, and then look at the monitor to see if there's any screen tearing. If there is, then something is wrong, if not, then FreeSync is working correctly.

at least that's what my understanding of it is.
