Flickering

I am currently having an issue with flickering. See video below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1px9mT5dRw

This happens very often.

I was using the 15.7 and 15.7.1 catalyst drivers and still causing this issue. Seems like 15.6 beta doesnt have this issue but it persisted after Windows 10 updated the driver automatically. I am currently using triple monitor setup. Each monitor is using resolution of 2048x1152. 2 of them plugged to DVI port. The third one is a DVI to Active Display Port adapter.

My Video card is Sapphire R9 290 Edition 1000MHZ 4G GDDR5 5200MHZ 512BIT PCI-E Dual DVI-D/HDMI/DP TRI-X Video Card

I am using Windows 10

Anyone have a fix for this?

It fixes itself when I restart the computer but it appears back after a bit.

Re: Flickering

I picked up a 390 recently and I was getting the same screen flickering (in both Windows 8.1 and 10, with 15.7 and 15.7.1). I run 2 monitors at 2560x1440. I was running one with DisplayPort and one with DVI. Last night I switched the DisplayPort to a 2nd DVI port and the issue didn't happen in the 2-3 hours I was on. It usually would by then. I'll know for sure after tonight.

lefo: Try running off only the DVI ports for a bit and see if it happens. I haven't tried any of the old beta drivers, but you mentioning that 15.6 didn't have issues gives me some hope they can fix this.

Re: Flickering

I have the same problem but only in games, on the desktop and Internet browsing not have the problem. I have a R7 250 and Windows 8.1 64bit and 15.6 Beta drivers did not pass me.

Re: Flickering

I have same issue however the flickering is worse on mine.

I was running windows 7 and regardless 15.7 OR 15.7.1 both experiencing this flickering. 14.12 was the last driver that did not show this problem.

I now updated to Windows 10 and cannot install 14.12 - such a shame..

Forced to install 15.7.1 to go into this issue will be a pain but oh well.

Mines seems to start flickering after exiting a game eg F1 2015.... i can temp fix it by going into the CCC Manager - Desktop Properties and change the refresh rate from 60Hz to 75 (even though mine only does 60Hz).the res changes to a suggested one 3024....... and then i go back to my usual res and it fixes the issue, but this is temporary.. The second i open up quicktime/youtube/VLC player the problem starts again, its also persistent with the mouse cursor moving ie; the faster i move it the more flicker i get....

And please dont start with its my cable, my overclocking blah blah.... its the drivers, simple.

I am running stock standard cards (R9 290)

Cables have been perfect since i built this rig...

Also in addition - Changing the Frame pacing to Always on - does nothing

Also creating a basic profile and doing a copy and paste of the original XML file into my new basic profile and changing the CoreClockTarget to simple values (30000 for 300Hz) did not resolve the issue)

happy to give more info if need be

Re: Flickering

I have this exact same problem too. This started for me in Win 8.1 after updating to the latest drivers. Then I hoped that updating to Windows 10 might fix it but nope.

The only difference is I temporally fix the problem by power cycling both my monitors.

This only happens for me on the desktop running 2D apps. If I have a game open on my main monitor and youtube on the 2nd it runs fine, soon as I minimize the game both screens start to flicker until I maximize the game again or power cycle the monitors.

I thought people were exaggerating when they said AMD drivers were bad, but this is horrible. Should have bought NVidia but now it's too late because this probably happened after updating driver and broke a perfectly good video card.

Re: Flickering

I have the same issue: AMD R290X Triple Monitor glitch - YouTube

I reinstall the driver like 5 times a day and it is getting really annoying. I have connected 3 monitors, one on HDMI, one on DVI-D and one on DisplayPort.

I use a MSI R290X LIGHTNING. Only in 2D indeed.

If I use the AMD-Catalyst-15.6-Beta-Software-Suite-Win8.1-64Bit-June22 (yes, beta) drivers (for Windows 8.1) I do not experience the issue, but graphic performance is really poor in that case.

Re: Flickering

At least the beta driver fixing the issues is good. Hopefully when it is released it will have full performance and fix this damn flickering issue.

Re: Flickering

Be advised, this is an old Win 8.1 beta driver from last June. So the issue still exists.
