    Radeon Chill – Conserves GPU power by selectively limiting frame rates.

    Enhanced Sync – Enables more responsive gaming with reduced input lag.

    VSR – Lets you choose higher display resolutions in games, which are then scaled down to fit your display.
  1. Display - Recommendations include:

    Resolution & Refresh Rate – Sets the display to its native resolution and peak refresh rate making the display appear sharper, with smoother animation.

    FreeSync – Provides smoother animation in games.

  2. System - Recommendations include:
