So, this problem started a week ago now.
Out of the blue, i started getting flickering and weird graphical issues in games. Its hard to describe, but you know when you are scrolling through a webpage, text and images start flickering. Its that type.
The graphical issues i was getting in games.. its like antialiasing isn't being applied at all. Including on videos on the web as well. You can see weird jagged lines on the edges of things, they are flickering. Wavy lines are appearing when something is moving, like a camera in a video or when you are moving around in a game.
I'm currently using the latest recommended drivers. 20.11.2
I've tried everything to fix this. I've done numerous scans to see if it was my computer, that all checked out. I checked the monitor and checked the HDMI cable was playing up at all. That was fine. It was plugged in properly. I even tried switching cables and the issue still persisted.
I switched monitors to see if the problem was happening on there as well. It was. I reset my computer, just in case it had anything to do with Windows. Nothing. The problem is still there.
I used DDU to uninstall and reinstall the drivers, even switched back to an older version to see if it happened. It did.
I'm at my ends rope. I've tried everything and it's still happening. I'm wondering if anybody here has the same issue at all?
My graphics card is a Radeon R9 280x. Sorry about that.
According to what it says on the AMD website, that version is the current recommended drivers for my GPU. There is optional drivers, but I've already tried them and the problem is still there.
not sure to be able to visualise your probleme , about wavy line, but .. so yeah , i thought this card wasn't supported anymore , but appears i'm wrong last driver is the same as the other card : 21.2.3
so go with this one for start 🙂
then try to undervolt+underclock to see if it help , it it gets better , maybe because your card is old , check temps etc, ... then you can try to reapply thermal paste to see if it helps ...
Just updated to 21.2.3, even though it was an optional driver. The issue is still persisting.
I have no idea about undervolting or underclocking. Its not my area of expertise, so i don't touch any of that stuff.
Temperatures are currently sitting at 53 degrees.
