I have an RX580 nitro+ 8GB and I tried to attach a second "monitor" (really a projector) to watch videos while I use the main monitor to do internet surfing and other computery stuff. The problem is that both the monitor and the projector flicker when I do certain things, like moving the mouse arrow around or minimize/maximize windows, see this video for an example: AMD dual monitor flicker - YouTube The voice you can hear in the background is from a video playing on the secondary "monitor" (which also flickers when the primary monitor flickers).
What I'd like to know is if this is a hardware or a software issue (since my card is still under warranty).
P.S. My card is not overclocked (see the attached screenshot for the frequency details).

Thanks for this man!
I have the same problem and it became very annoying while working in any fullscreen application. Hope they can fix this but for the moment this fixed it for me.
The only way I found to fix it is to use the Radeon Software and under the display settings enable Virtual Super Resolution (VSR). Hope this helps anyone having similar issues.
Just tried it. For me VSR or VSR+GPU Scaling while FreeSync is still ON, don't work. The only thing that works is disabling FreeSync from Display Options and letting it on AMD optimized from each game's profile(the Gaming tab from AMD Software).
Altough I think I'll leave VSR and GPU Scaling ON.
Thanks, it helped. it's anew bug for me and I'm not sure what cause it. The new windows update or the new driver. I had no problem before. I hope they will fix it.
Unfortunately the patch doesn't work for me. Everything is still flickering. Only disabling the freesync on one of the monitors do the trick
From my experience (HP are now replacing my 2 year old (Out of warranty) desktop) as there does not appear to be a solution for this!
If you use version 26.20.12028.2 drivers from the Microsoft Update Catalogue website with free sync on all will work but no updates! However, you will have to investigate which one is best for your build though.
On saying that, if you de-activate the Free sync in the software for all monitors, all should be good on the latest drivers.
