New video card--AMD RX 580, 8gb vram, new MB--I74770 16gb, win 10 Pro...

Was exploring the Radeon Settings yesterday and accidentally initiated a 'scan' and reconfiguration. Don't know what i did or what changes were made. But later when I went to play Skyrim, there were weird lighting effects and even audio anomalies that hadn't been there previously. The game was virtually unplayable.

Looked hard at the dedicated Skyrim settings in the Radeon tray applet and took a chance--changed the "Wait for Vertical Refresh" from "Enhanced Sync" to "Always On" and that seemed to fix the problem.

So...I'm happy for that, but I'm not a power user, and I'm wondering what the setting should be?

And why changing it worked.

I think you should just try uninstalling the drivers with DDU(for the GPU) and reinstall them with the latest off AMD's sure. The other side would be, if it's working as is, leave it be.

Out of curiosity, list your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:
Monitor:

Well, I had that too but then I realized that the only problem i was having was in Skyrim. My graphics, resolution and gameplay were unaffected elsewhere.

So anyway it seems to be working fine no...submitted a similar question over on the AMD forums but it was deleted and, attempts to resubmit the question are blocked--clicking on "post" doesn't work.

thank you for taking the time.
