The displayed FreeSync menu items on the monitor may vary, depending on the monitor model and
compatibility with the AMD graphics card.
――Not available when PIP/PBP Mode is set to On.
――The sound quality of the monitor may decrease if FreeSync is enabled.
Use the HDMI/DP cable provided by the manufacturer when using FreeSync.
If you use the FreeSync function while playing a game, the following symptoms may occur:
•• The screen may flicker depending on the type of graphics card, the game option settings, or the
video being played. Try the following actions: decrease the game setting values, change the
current FreeSync mode to Standard Engine, or visit the AMD website to check your graphics driver’s
version and update it with the latest one.
•• While you are using the FreeSync function, the screen may flicker due to variation of the output
frequency from the graphics card.
•• The response rate during the game may fluctuate depending on the resolution. A higher resolution
generally decreases the response rate.
•• The sound quality of the monitor may be degraded.
――If you encounter any issues when using the function, contact the Samsung Service Center.
――When the resolution is changed while setting FreeSync to Standard Engine or Ultimate Engine, the screen
tearing can happen intermittently. Set FreeSync to Off and change the resolution.

The blank spaces found on the screen have nothing to do with the product.
If the screen is turned off and the power indicator blinks even though the product is properly connected
to a PC, perform a self-diagnosis test.
Blank spaces on the screen are caused by the PC or graphics card. To resolve the problem, adjust the
screen size in the HDMI or DVI settings for the graphics card.
1 Power off both the PC and product.
2
Disconnect the cables from the product.
3 Power on the product.
4 If the message Check Signal Cable appears, the product is working normally.

――Horizontal Frequency
The time required to scan a single line from the left to the right side of the screen is called a horizontal cycle. The reciprocal number of a horizontal cycle is called horizontal frequency. Horizontal frequency is measured in
kHz.
――Vertical Frequency
Repeating the same picture dozens of times per second allows you to view natural pictures. The repeat frequency is called "vertical frequency" or "refresh rate" and is indicated in Hz.
――This product can be set to only one resolution for each screen size to obtain the optimum picture quality due to the nature of the panel. Using a resolution other than the specified resolution may degrade the picture quality.
To avoid this, it is recommended that you select the optimum resolution specified for your product.
――Some resolutions listed in the table above may not be available depending on graphics card specifications.
