Freesync causing dark image on Neo G9

Windows 11 Pro

XFX 7900XTX

Adrenalin 23.3.1

5800X3D

Samsung Neo G9 5120x1440  (1011.0 firmware)

60/120/240hz (same problem on all 3 refresh rates)

HDR works beautifully in Windows 11 until I turn on Freesync.  The output image then becomes MUCH darker, although the freesync function itself is working properly.  Even in SDR mode the image becomes quite a bit darker with Freesync enabled.  Any help is appreciated, thank you.

Check if there's is an update for your monitor. I had that issue on my G8 Odyssey Neo. Had to uninstall and reinstall Adrelina software.

Thanks for the response.  I have the most recent driver and firmware.  Unfortunately there is no new firmware in the last year.

Sorry to hear that. I'm super glad I just had to reinstall the adrenalin software. I have 6800M very different from your GPU. Was looking in the AMD forums apparently its a known issue with the 7900XT not working with HDR FreeSync. Hopefully they come up with an update soon. Best of luck!
