AMD Enhanced Sync - Increased responsiveness and less shutter

We all know that V-Sync is far from a perfect option, allowing stuttering to take place when a game isn't played at your display's refresh rate and allowing a lot of additional latency to take place when framerates could be higher. 

This has prompted AMD to create their new "Enhanced Sync" technology, which is designed to minimise frame latency while also reducing stuttering and minimising screen tearing.

Enhanced sync runs at an unlocked frame framerate and effectively sits between VSync and FreeSync, working to minimise latency and decrease stuttering. This technology will not offer an experience that is as good as FreeSync, but it is a marked improvement when looking at the user's gameplay experience. 

Beyond that Enhanced Sync will work with FreeSync when your display is working outside of its FreeSync range, allowing even FreeSync users to benefit from this technology.

I wish Nvidia had something like the Chill feature, I think it's genius especially in games that don't require super high frame rates.

I tried it in WoW when I temporarily had the RX-580 and it was superb.Quote

I wish this Cryptocurrency GPU shortage would end soon. (sigh)

Probably about another 4 or 5 months left. (ugh)Quote

Well I didn't buy the RX-580 for mining, I bought mine at the end of March, I just wasn't happy with the general performance so got a refund a week later.Quote

Well I have been saying drivers are very very important. Low and behold.... Almost as good as the driver from Oct 2011. I'd expect something like that after Vega though.

Just installed without any issues. In fact they improved it somewhat. Older drivers used to mess with my audio settings after an uninstall/reinstall. Just uninstalled this and installed and it didn't touch any of it. No more fiddling aroundQuote
