    FRTC up to 95fps, seems a bit stingy. Also DX10+ only?

    Kam VedBrat, principal group program manager, Microsoft Corp enthusiastically welcomed the new driver release: "With full support for DirectX 12 and WDDM 2.0 in this latest AMD Catalyst driver for AMD APU and Radeon Graphics processors, customers can benefit from improved multithreaded scaling and CPU utilization; reduced GPU overhead; and ultimately richer, smoother, more compelling games," said VedBrat.

    What are these quaint fixed-rate monitors you are referencing. It's all about FreeSync now

    Re: AMD Catalyst 15.7 driver offers VSR, FRTC, FreeSync support

    So my next question is how do I enable VSR? Can't see anything about it in CCC. FRTC is there and working.

    I had a look on AMD's VSR page, nothing.

    I'm guessing you have to override a game's AA setting in CCC and set it to Super Sampling, rather than Multi Sampling That said, I don't see anywhere that you can chose the virtual resolution, so it's probably not that.

    Re: AMD Catalyst 15.7 driver offers VSR, FRTC, FreeSync support

    No it's missing. There should be a button in the Digital Flat Panel properties, next to the 'Enable GPU up-scaling' button, called 'Enable virtual super resolution'. I don't have it despite my card being on the supported VSR list in the release notes
