Re: Dual monitor screen flickering? (RX580)

Oh, can you explain just one thing to me about this? I have noticed that nearly every post about flickering gets swarmed by answers about FreeSync, yet somehow the video linked in the opening post of this thread shows “AMD FreeSync: Not supported”, and the author never mentioned FreeSync. Is there an explanation for this phenomenon?

I have also never said anything about FreeSync in my reply above, and my monitor definitely does not have FreeSync support.

Re: Dual monitor screen flickering? (RX580)

Hi,

Well in a word "No". On saying that, it is something to do with the issue. If I use the drivers as mentioned the issue does not happen.

Now HP are replacing my desktop unit as they cannot fix my flickering issues.

Yes it's interesting indeed but usually FreeSync is what fixes it for most people so it's kind of logical that they post what solved the problem for them.

Re: Dual monitor screen flickering? (RX580)

Do you mean ‘I had a completely different problem so here is the solution which you saw suggested about 50 times before in other threads but is not related to your problem in any way’? Or are people just bumping up their post count or something this way?

Our reports of an actual problem not related to FreeSync constantly get drowned out by these suggestions and this is honestly infuriating.

With this attitude maybe you don't deserve to be helped.

Re: Dual monitor screen flickering? (RX580)

Thank you for suggesting this.  I had FreeSync turned on under global settings.  I turned it off everywhere I could find and now it doesn't flicker. 

The flickering didn't occur during gameplay.  It started right after I would quit the game and return to desktop.  All good now.  My monitors are compatible with FreeSync so I'm not sure what changed in the last 2 weeks.  Thanks again.
