Hi everyone,

I have a freesync display and an amd radeon card. I activated freesync on the display and radeon adrenalin software recognized that i did so, and it is also checked/activated there. However, why is my framerate not capped? Isn't that what freesync is supposed to do? Also, I could swear, I got some tearing in one of my last games.

Any ideas? Thanks

No. Capping frames is what Vsync does, Freesynce minimizes tearing while leaving the frame-rate uncapped. Also most monitors have a freesynce range in which it works, dip below that frame-rate and you can get some bad tearing, its usually 50-70 FPS on 144hz monitors.
