Gamer gets AMD FreeSync who works on a GeForce GPU, what kind of witchcraft is this?



  NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060
AMD and NVIDIA support both game-leveling technologies that easily match the refresh rate of a screen with the GPU so that the images remain synchronized. The former supports FreeSync, an open standard, and the latter promotes its own G-Sync solution. Normally, you can not mix and match technologies, but under any circumstances you can.

If you read this, you already know that you should use G-Sync, you need a G-Sync monitor paired with a GeForce graphics card or mobile GeForce GPU. Likewise, activation of FreeSync requires a supported display and a Radeon graphics card or GPU. The lack of interoperability means going all-in with either technology.

On Reddit, the user "Survivor" uploaded some screenshots that showed FreeSync enabled on a system with a GeForce GTX 1
060 graphics card.

"So far I've tested this on Batman AK and AMD Freesync Windmill Demo. The windmill detects Freesync perfectly and you can clearly see that Freesync works with 1060, "he survived.

His method requires using one of AMD's Ryzen processors with Vega graphics (an APU, basically). In his case, he got FreeSync who worked on a system with a Ryzen 3 2200G with Radeon Vega 8 graphics. The same method can also be used on a Ryzen 5 2400G (paired with a GeForce GTX 1070), as WCCFTech confirmed this weekend.

What makes this possible is a bit of BIOS trickery. To make it work, he plugged his GeForce GTX 1060 into a non-freeSync screen and plugged a FreeSync monitor into the motherboard. This enables the integrated Vega 8 GPU in the BIOS.

There are a few other steps required to make it work (hit source link in the via box below), but what boils down will trick the screen to enable FreeSync with a supported GPU (Vega 8), and then Select the GeForce GTX 1060 GPU as the preferred graphics process in NVIDIA's control panel.

Something strange behavior has been observed while on this route, but for the most part it works. For now, anyway, it would not surprise us if this solution gets busted by a future driver update.
