    FreeSync not available on the Xbox One X using 120hz


    I just bought a HP 25X monitor to use for my Xbox One X and the "allow variable refresh rate" option is greyed out.

    The monitor supports 1080p at 144hz and has FreeSync technology.

    My question is: Is the Freesync/"allow variable refresh rate" option not available when you switch to 120hz?

    I did enable FreeSync on my monitor and IT DOES WORK when switched to 60hz, but I cannot select "allow variable refresh rate" (the option is greyed out) when switched to 120hz.

    Also, is this option important to have/enable when playing games at 120hz? What exactly does FreeSync technology do? Is FreeSync only used when playing games at 60hz?

    Thanks for taking the time to read my post! Any responses will be appreciated.

    P.S.

    Would it be better to play games using FreeSync at 60hz or not using FreeSync at 120hz?

    :)

    Unable to 120Hz at 1440p Even Though Monitor Supports 144Hz at 1440p

    You're a little discombobulated there.

    I can display 1440p ONLY at 144Hz, and cannot at 120Hz on Xbox. I can only display 1440p at 60Hz on Xbox one X.

    Yes I can display 1440p at 60Hz with Freesync - Although 120Hz without Freesync would still technically be better but unfortunately that is not possible with the restrictions on Xbox one X.

    I use 1440p @ 60Hz settings with Freesync and HDR with 32 bit color. I get a pretty damn good picture but I'm just a little upset I can't use the 120Hz feature.

    Yeah, my bad - its 1440p/120hz OR 1080p/60hz with freesync .

    My question is - is it possible to turn on freesync 2 with this Agon monitor in 1440p/60hz on xbox one x?

    The Freesync is usually available for lower values

    FreeSync is an adaptive synchronization technology for liquid-crystal displays that support a dynamic refresh rate, aimed at reducing tearing and stuttering caused by misalignment with content's frame rate.
    FreeSync was developed by AMD and first announced in 2014 to compete against Nvidia's proprietary G-Sync.

    Xbox One X Freesync Horizontal Lines

    Hello, thank you for the tips. Unfortunately the reset did not work. I was able to plug in my friends Xbox One X and it displayed the same scrolling bands using Freesync at 4K 60Hz. It is my understanding that Xbox One X actually does not do Freesync
    at 1440p 120Hz, yet it is selectable. I would recommend in a software update to gray out Freesync when 1440p 120Hz is selected.

    Anyway, Samsung appears unaware of the issue. I created a Reddit post on Xbox and many users have reached out, some claiming the same issue on other Samsung models that support Freesync on Xbox. Hopefully this can be resolved by an update to either Xbox
    or Samsung firmware or both. It is unfortunate to pay so much for high end features and have issues.
