    The 40Hz issue surely has big implications in a situation where the frame rate is forced below that and can't be altered by changing settings? For example, cut scenes in Dragon Age: Inquisition are set to and fixed at 30fps by design. You can not alter any settings in game to change that.

    Given the non-interactivity you can just v-sync for the cutscenes without problem.

    I would think this depends on whether the "cut scene" is a video clip or based on the game engine. As a video clip FreeSync doesn't encounter the same issues. A fix from AMD would, of course, be the best solution.

    Lack of VESA mount on any slim monitor is plain daft and does neglect a large market.

    Nice monitor for the most part though.

    Put it to 60 for 30fps cutsenes? Then it would sync perfectly into 2 frames for every 1 frame. Same with 24hz movies at 48hz.
