x17 R1, turn on S3221QS AMD FreeSync?
I have a Alienware x17 r1 with RTX 3080 mobile card. I have it connected to a Dell S3221QS monitor which is AMD freesync capable.
I am unable to get any freesync options on the monitor.
I would like help troubleshooting getting freesync on the monitor please.
the x17 has:
One HDMI 2.1 port
One Mini DisplayPort 1.4
One Thunderbolt 4 port with Power Delivery
The monitor has:
2 x HDMI (HDCP 2.2)
DisplayPort (DisplayPort 1.2 mode)
I have tried HDMI from the x17 to the HDMI on the monitor without success.
I have tried HDMI from the x17 to the display port on the monitor without success.
NVIDIA control panel does not show any g sync or any other kind of sync option.
I have updated drivers and bios. Updating the bios allowed me to disable optimus as I thought the interated graphics chip may be causing problems. This has also been unsuccessful.
If I try to turn on "adaptive sync" from the intel graphics command center, it tells me that the internal display on the x17 is on an intel adaptor but it seems to say that the external monitor is on a "non-intel adaptor", and I think this means that adaptive sync cannot work with the connected external monitor in the HDMI output port.
Thank you in advance.
