I just wanted to ask if strobelight works with an active adapter or any adapters at all.
For now after using the setup and rebooting, windows shows in the display adapter settings that I'm on 121Hz and only 121 and 120Hz are available, but when I start the strobelight.exe
that there are no compatible displays found
Active adapters don't seem to pass through DDC, which is required to unlock LightBoost. It's possible to unlock LightBoost with an HDMI-DVI cable, but I don't know if the 5700 XT is affected by the DVI communication problem. If the monitor is already unlocked, you can just switch refresh rates to turn LightBoost on and off.

So, Lightboost might be possible later with an update for the GPU (driver) some time later?

LightBoost is possible if it's already unlocked, but Strobelight won't be able to detect the monitor through the adapter.
