The only thing that sticks out is that we're both using a TV. Do you have a monitor with DVI cable to test out?

My monitor is a dell U2713hm. I'm using the displayport but I tried DVI as well and the result is the same.

I'm thinking it may have to do with the refresh rate and how it is detected. My previous cars were nvidia and used to detect my refresh rate as 59.95hz vs 60hz for the ati.

I read somewhere that if the drivers weren't able to maintain that vsync, they dropped to half the refresh rate for some odd reason.

If it's reading the refresh rate wrong, that could be the effect.

Because somehow AMD pooched their drivers and can't seem to figure out what's wrong with them.

I'm using the same drivers as you are, but i'd love to be able to use mantle and sync for bf4...

Try the 14.4 leaked beta drivers.

 

They're the drivers that were used for the R9-295x2 reviews. All my issues with vsync seem to have disappeared.
