I got a little problem here that needs some input from the community. Whenever I'm playing under Boderless Window (any game) it frequently freezes for 1 or 2 seconds. When I switch to Fullscreen the problem goes away. I still cannot understand why it is causing this freeze, it's not a microstutter it's just straight up frozen for around a second or two.
I recently upgraded to a FreeSync display and this is when the problem started appearing. I'm running a RX 480 with the Crimson ReLive 16.12.2 driver and when I read the release notes for this driver I discovered that AMD has enabled FreeSync for Borderless Window - but it's not working correctly in my case? is that the cause of the freezing? Well this is what I suspect is the cause because when I reverted the driver back to a version that was released back in November (when FreeSync was not enabled for Borderless), the problem went away it was working just fine without any freezing (obviously FreeSync is disabled because Borderless).
Now, running in Fullscreen does fix all my problems but I highly prefer having Borderless because it is much quicker to alt-tab back to Windows (which I do very frequently) and it also allows f.lux to work when gaming (for those who don't know, it's basically a blue light filter).
So I was wondering is there anything I can try (besides reverting the driver) to fix this freezing problem. I would also like to ask is there anyone who has encountered a similar problem?
