    That's not the problem, HDMI 2.0 supports up to 144Hz at 1440p. The problem is that nVidia cards can't properly use Freesync when connected via older HDMI standards.

    I can’t select freesync on any of my screens when connected to the HDMI port. So this is definitely a problem on the HDMI port of the card.
    I just did a test with 1 screen in AMS2. Freesync on, 70Hz in the settings, variable Vsync in NCP and all settings in the game maxed out. Wow what a difference. Beautiful GFX and runs so smooth. Understandable of course. 2560*1440 = 3.686.400 pixels. That is 1/3rd of the 11.059.200 when play 1440p on triples. But I think I’m gonna look for an ultra wide screen after all. As said before, I’m not a hardcore simracer, I play other games as well. So an ultrawide is the best option for me. I miss some FOV of course, that is a bit of a drawback but I win better GFX and a smoother experience. I have seen a couple of vids on racing with ultrawide screens and the FOV is higher than on my single 16:1 screens. Ever since I bought these 1440p screens I’m trying to get the best and smoothest experience. I have enough of all the tweaking. :D

    On an AMD graphics card, 4k 60Hz Freesync monitor, the following works perfectly for me:

    - RTSS FPS limit at 57 (RivaTuner Statistics Server).
    - Freesync on.
    - V-sync on (in-game).
    - Standard Radeon profile.

    The picture is perfectly smooth and I have no noticeable input lag.
    Every other combination I find messes either with the smoothness or the FFB.
    I got the idea from watching Battle(non)sense videos on input lag and smoothness and reading Blurbusters articles. The idea is that you want both Freesync/Gsync and Vsync active by limiting FPS at -3 from your monitor maximum refresh rate (non-overclocked).

    It's so good that I see no point in getting a higher Hz monitor. It's much, much smoother than 144 Hz with bad settings since the frame times will fluctuate causing stutter.

    I have bought an ultrawide 34inch 165hz screen. Works perfectly. No more triple screens for me as I’m not a hardcore simracer and play more other games than racegames lately.
