I've wanted to update my drivers for quite a while now but any attempt to update past 19.5.2 eventually results in a nauseating flicker that persists until I reboot. I haven't pinned down exactly what causes it but it looks like it's certain effects in games or even common applications. I've filmed a video of causing the problem (apologies for the length): https://youtu.be/JTNwivSCaZo.
Windows 10 Home 64-bit (10.0, Build 18363)
ASUS Radeon RX 580 DUAL-RX580-O8G
3x ViewSonic XG2401
I'm not the only person with this issue, but this discussion has no replies: Flicker screen after updating drivers adrenaline We both have multiple monitors and drivers after 19.5.2 are unstable.
I could continue to use 19.5.2 but I've begun to have other weird intermittent problems with certain games (especially CoD:MW) that I suspect are fixed in the current driver version. Thanks in advance!
epicwolverine Did you ever manage to fix this? I have the same issue. If I roll back to 19.1.2 I have no issues - tried 19.9.2 really bad flicker issue. Went back to 19.1.2 no issue again. So figured it was a driver between 19.1.2 and 19.9.2 - so 19.5.2 makes perfect sense.
I get the issue with all versions of 2020...
Been on to AMD and ASUS - but no real joy. They seem to think it should work fine....
MSI B450 Tomahawk Max - Mo Bo
Ryzen 5 3600 CPU
Asus RX580 OC 4GB GPU
2 x Philips 246E 1080p monitors (75hz)
Really appreciate anything you managed to find out about this!
Indirectly, yes. My SSD died so I had to reinstall Windows and used the latest driver (20.4.2). I haven't had problems yet. Hopefully it doesn't manifest itself again in the next driver update
Thanks man. Looking at your video my issue is exactly the same! And I have an RX580 too. It's really odd as there is no issue on the older drivers - and for a while I was running 2020 fine. Then once the issue started no version of 2020 would get rid of it - only going back to like 19.1.2 fixes it for me. Sounds like I need to do a clean W10 install. Not really go the time to do it. Thanks for the help though - good to know there might be a fix.
Sometimes after a complete reinstall (with repartitioning) the issue does not manifest for a few days but then it came back with a vengeance and crushed my hopes (cards tested are Radeon HD7950 and Radeon VII).
Does 19.5.2 not work for you?
Thank you so much for replying.
19.5.2 works but W10 is now forcing an update on me - even if I block
hardware updates. So I either have to never update W10 again - or get
pushed on to the latest 2020 and the crazy bad flickering comes black....
I'm now in the process of having to reinstall everything on my computer AND
I have the flickering issue really bad..... Not great.
