Yeah totally, for the devs it's pretty easy to do, but you're right the issue isn't well known by the devs. Multiples times on Reddit I posted too, when people ask I do the same, wonderful monitor for colors but a shame for overdrive management. No effectively I managed to know which scaler is used in the monitor and dynamic overdrive is a dream, but yeah a stepped overdrive like you say, for a range of frequencies would be great, but if never they see our complaints the minimum would be to let us disable it. I don't know if all samples are equal but mine is horrible even at 144 Hz on grey to grey transitions. I didn't think about that !! That would a great thing if it makes things move, and we could thank nvidia ! Also one thing, the fact is I'm an electronic engineering student and I've tried a lot of things to mod the firmware, with my teachers because alone it was lost at the beginning, and even with a team of 5, two teachers and 3 students, we didn't manage to mod it. So the last hope is Samsung to act. That's a great question, it seems that no one is reading the forums. (Sorry for english mistakes if there are some, i'm French)

Exactly I have the exact same issue since october I have this monitor, it's annoying because I can't use Freesync with my Vega 64... Of course the problem is fixable via firmware updates, but Samsung doesn't want to because they don't care we gave them our money. The problem is that there is static overdrive like on 99.99999 % of Freesync monitor (except the nixeus EDG 27), because AMD isn't too much strict with freesync standard and manufacturers don't care. So let's come back to the static overdrive. With G-sync monitors there is dynamic overdrive, and with every monitor of the market (even on freesync ones WITH freesync ON), it's possible to disable entirely the overdrive. Moreover, VA panels are really sensitive to temperature, so the overdrive on this model isn't tweaked correctly because even at 144 Hz there is insane ghosting when the panel heats up. So the minimalist solution would be to Samsung to release a firmware update where they would put one more setting in the "Response Time" section, to allow us to disable overdrive even WITH freesync ACTIVE (I precise because if they read that and they correct the problem i would give 5 stars on my review). But I think this will never happen. But let's hope !
