I have an nvidia graphics card and a gsync screen. Adobe Photoshop CC and all other Adobe programs, for that matter, somehow trigger Gsync.
Whenever I launch an Adobe programme and perform a simple action like dragging an image in Photoshop, Illustrator or a video in Premiere, the refresh rate starts jumping around from 165 all the way to 17 and back. As soon as I stop the action I was performing, my refresh rate jumps back to its default (which is 165 in my case).
All my drivers, obviously including my graphics card's drivers, are up to date.
I have an Asus Gsync screen and an nvidia 2070 Super, but this problem also occurred on my previous graphics card.
Somehow Adobe software triggers the variable refresh rate, which should only be the case in video games.
Does anyone know of a fix, besides disabling Gsync every time?
No one? Seriously?
Are there any Adobe customer service people available?
i have the same Problem since updating my GPU from GTX 980ti to RTX 2070 Super.
FPS drops low to 17, struggeling around 50ths and coming back to 120 after doing not more action in adobe creative products.
Looking for a solution, but cant find this problem at the internet.
Exact same problem; upgraded from a 980ti to a 2070 super as well!
At the moment it's impossible to use any Adobe program with gsync enabled.
I am havig the exact same issue with Lightroom and Photoshop!
I have an RTX 2080 Ti with a 165hz refresh rate G-Sync monitor.
The program never ceases to drop the refresh rate to an abismol level for no reason when using certain functions within the program and sometimes the low refresh rate is continuous until I close the program.
i9-9900k Processor as well.
All up to date drivers.
This is very annoying because I am forced to use a monitor with a refresh rate of 60hz to be able to even use the program effectively. This needs to be fixed!
The seam issue.
You can try to reduce your refresh rate to 60 and that solve, partially the problem
The Problem seems to be done for me.
Nvidia released driver v441.20 today, after this everything works smooth again at full 120hz withhout any drops.
Last Adobe updates (to 2020 versions) seem to have fixed the issue.
I have the same problem with my 2080TI and updates don't help. 😞
Solved my problem by turning off G-Sync for Adobe Apps.
Where did you turn this off? The photoshop clitching is relentless.
3d-profiles in Nvidia Control Panel.
I had the exact same problem ever since installing Adobe Audition. Now with the 2020 update all my Adobe apps continually dip framerate whenever I'm performing an action. After hours of troubleshooting I have finally come across this thread and my god am I happy. As someone else mentioned, turning G-Sync to "fixed refresh rate" in the Nvidia control panel for all Adobe apps fixed my issue.
Adobe needs to fix this now. Small bugs like this waste hours of productivity.
"Somehow Adobe software triggers the variable refresh rate, which should only be the case in video games."
No, no and no! Photoshop is using OpenGL and Nvidia finally implemented OpenGL windowed G-Sync! It is great. And all problems are because of Adobe devs. You can simply turn off G-sync for ONLY Photoshop in nvidia control panel. Also here I discussed it.
What the heck is going on?
I have used Adobe products on the same hardware, using the same GSync display, for literally YEARS. GSync has been enabled since 2014 guys, and has had precizely zero problems until updating to the current Adobe product line.
Gsync is Opengl started working only in 2019. And yes, photoshop uses Opengl.
I have been using the same Gsync display, with Gsync enabled, on the same hardware, since 2014. It wasn't until I updated to CC 2020 earlier this week that this has become an issue. First I've ever encountered it, but I am certain that it functioned since 2014, and I use Photoshop almost daily.
No, OpenGL did not have VRR extensions in the driver to give it to G-sync. You updated Nvidia driver it has nothing to do with Photoshop. See my post, https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop/g-sync-is-now-working-in-photoshop-with-latest-nvidia-drive...
Had this problem today as well on a fresh Windows 10 installation. In the Nvidia Control Panel, I fixed it by disabling G-Sync for WINDOWED modes, and kept G-Sync only for FULL SCREEN.
I discovered other programs giving me the same issue, hovering my mouse over their icons would lag the mouse like crazy. Intel Rapid Storage application - just hovering over the buttons and icons- will cause the same issue I see in Adobe apps with the mouse lag as well.
No need for that. You can just turn of G-sync off only for Photoshop in 3D profiles. Anyway, on fast PC it is fixed, i.e. 1 frame drawing is now fast enough.
I have had to disable the use of my Graphics Processor so that Photoshop is even usable. Below are my system requirements which I know are really good for just running photoshop. As of 8.16.2020, this is still an issue.

Problems started here as well. I disabled Gsync from the nvidia panel, but adobe programs still mes with the monitor's refresh rate which make it impossible to work without manually disabling gsync every time. Very annoying.
Disable GSYNC for adobe programs separetly in nVidia Control Panel. WORKS LIKE A CHARM. I cant bealive I solved this. My card is 2070 Super as well. Solution in Polish but you can translate it easy. I tired almost everything and finally found a solution. I couldnt even change tabs in Photoshop before without 5s lag.
Just a little update to the topic, the problem still not fixed on the current drivers of Nvidia and Abobe ( 09/22/2020 ). The only way i found to fix the issue was disable the g-sync capability on Adobe apps just like the people above me have described.
