    Its not fixed yet and i think this is more vbios related than anything else.

    Interesting thing about new drivers is, freesync is supported per game now and not in settings (in settings is still not supported).
    I tried only one game, GTA V and performance is improved with this driver, probally in all games with dx11. I think i get 10+ fps more now.
    I tried radeon boost in GTA V, this is one of the best features for sure, fps are more stable and visually looks the same.

    Fast try with new and older driver with dx12

    EDIT: Funny thing is with BF1, i dont know if is something wrong with settings or what, but i got 50fps more on ultra settings now with dx11 and new drivers.
    I tried terraria and i cant believe how much better looks now with interger scaling

    EDIT2: new features are mostly broken :D my opinion, wait for new version and bugfixes!

    Thats right!

    After installing this driver im having issue with freesync. When i try to do windows update to detect the freesync panel, it wont load the radion software and says not compatible setting with the driver.

    Possibly bug or driver issue.

    Often Nvidia/AMD display driver updates are also led or followed by a Windows Update, and then another quick hotfix patch for the driver.

    I think it’s opposite. Nvidia/AMD has to follow Micro$lope’s shenanigans:) Screw up in last second is the normal.

    Did you try using DDU to clean up the old drivers, reinstall drivers from Acer, then install AMD drivers on top of them not selecting the clean install option?

    I have already shipped off my PH500AMD to its new owner, but before I did, Windows 10 1909 was working fine with the 19.12.1 drivers barring the resume screen distortion issue.

    Previous drivers worked fine before too. Im gonna try to install the new drivers again and see. The thing is, I dont see improvements on my Games so i may Just keep the Old drivers. Not fan of the new features, seems buggy.

    Is there a trick in getting freesync working with 19.12.3? Did the standard clean install of the Acer driver and then update to the latest but freesync is not supported. :(

    How did you update to the latest AMD driver from Acer's?
    Via Custom or Express install option?
    Try Express if you hadn't done so.

    Apparently it isn't possible to enable freesync globally but it works on a per game level. AMD should make their interface a bit more intuitive as looking at the display tab the freesync option reads "not supported". :vbconfused:
    Haven't seen a HDCP option to disable sadly.
