I bought this Asus TUF RX 6700XT last Tuesday and it seems the GPU is having issues (not sure hardware or software). I noticed multiple screen flashing or black screen for less than a second, and some times is not the entirely window though and it seems to happen when the GPU is not under load. I haven't experienced the black screen/screen flashing while gaming but mostly when browsing, working on a terminal etc
Performing tests over the weekend at the point at completely wiped my disk, replaced all the cables, tested different monitor and GPU cards (1030 2060 without issues) I found that the issue is more frequent at 144Hz (on both monitors) happening up to 3 times per minute. While running at 240Hz issues would happen twice every 10 minutes and running at 120Hz issue happening once in a while. Screen goes black and return for a second, sometimes part of the window open is blacked and images reaper after moving the mouse over or resizing the window. I played at 120Hz for about 30 minutes and didn't notice any issue.
At this reddit post I have added pictures and videos related to the issue including all the testing I did over the weekend.
Anyone else having this issue?
Yes we all are having the same stupid issue. Its so frustrating, its been 5 months already and AMD hasn't fixed it.
Its a Known Issue on the release Notes of the driver you will se written as:
"Brightness flickering may intermittently occur in some games or applications when Radeon™ FreeSync is enabled, and the game is set to use borderless fullscreen"
If you turn Freesync off the stutter makes the game unplayable. I'm thinking of going back to Nvidia just cause of that.
It is funny I am not having major issues while playing (except for the miserable fps that mine 2060 can to better) but i get this screen flash or rainbow snow while using the Windows and mostly when I am working on my terminal session! At the point I have to minimize and maximize the screen every 5 minutes!!!
Playing overwatch I can get solid 120fps on high config (which I had hopes this vga would be able to run ultra for such an old game). Today is my last day to return this gpu and I am considering take it to the store as the performance is very disappointing and if AMD cant figure out the driver issues I am not a free tester but a consumer (btw such a high price for a 3060ti/3070 range gpu)... very very disappointing
If I were you I'd return it. I bought mine on ebay, so I'm stuck with it.
I don't think the will fix anything, there is no incentive to do it unfortunately due to shortage l, like GamersNexus said "literally anything will sell"
Mine will occasionally "blink" not long after I boot up but everything is normal afterwards and it never happens while gaming. I'm hoping it's just drivers...
Similar specs as you.

IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH RX 6700XT, I FIX MINE replacing it by a 3070, and I strongly recommend you do the same as AMD doesn't seem to be working to fix any of the issues we are reporting. Good luck!
Mine runs great since the April 21 drivers came out.
Any fix for this? I'm using Windows 11. I had this problem in Windows 10 until they fixed with new drivers and now the same problem in Windows 11.
In my case, my PC worked fine with RX 580 8GB
After change to new ASUS ROG STRIX RX6700XT. It's randomly blinking, all running program windows gone black, desktop gone back, and blanked taskbar with visual artifacts. In most case, it can temporary solved by minimize and maximize program windows and restart windows explorer. In worst case, It can't be solved until I log off or restarting Windows
Another issue, Windows always freeze or restart itself after waked my PC up
When gaming, It's perfectly fine except those issue. I don't know if it hardware or driver issue.

Exactly the same problem here with brand new Asus TUF 6700XT, relieved that seems to be a software issue.

Have you contacted amd via their bug report tool?
I have MSI RX6600XT, it's doing the same thing. It's got to be a driver problem.
Try performance power plan.
performance power plan not helps to resolve the issue
Yeah, it works a little better for me, but it still happens.
try to install uwp beta driver from win 11, looks like works better, I have no a lot of time to testing it but at first look it’s good.
Mine runs great since the April 21 drivers came out.
i think i fixed this **bleep** issue in my 4k Monitor.
I turn on the super resolution in AMD Radeon and then choose the 5k with 200% scale in Window 11 and the flickering is gone now. Give it a try and let me know if it work.
I have fixed my problem. I have made RMA and new card is rock stable, it scores 0.0200points less but its not artifacting, memory overclocks the same, but core clock cannot go past 2650 and be stable in all games and in driver desktop.... Old one did 2800 stable in games but flicker artifact in desktop it did also the same at stock speed... Oh well at least it runs at advertised clocks. Oh and first gpu was from the first batch and this one is obviously not.
Asus fixed whatever was leaking in the pbc..
So the only solution here is nothing else but get a new one, it's very disappointed for me, thought it was because of driver or window.
Yep, no solution but to go NVIDIA. I got an MSI RTX 3090. First NVIDIA I have owned since GTX 660ti.
EXACT same issue with an ASUS 6700XT TUF OC / Ryzen 5600X / ASUS PRIME B550 A-WIFI MB
I tried everything said in this thread, nothing really helps. Turning on the OSD (Ctrl+Shift+O) seems to improve the situation (but still happening a little bit).
Has anyone got any update on this issue? Are we the unlucky who got our cards from a faulty GPU batch? Is there any hope this problem can have a software based fix??
Seriously considering to RMA it for an NVIDIA 3060 Ti/3070!
How did you check if the card is from "first batch"?
I didn't know how to check that.
The shop where i bought it, has sendt it to ASUS Holland, for repair
Bit of on update on my end, I've only ensured all windows/radeon software it up to date, at all times. Issue seemed to fix itself.
Sometimes flashes once in a blue moon, but was practically unusable when i first purchased the card. Touch wood, seems 90% fixed.
Good luck fellas
Same problem on the RX6600XT. I don't get issues in games (BF5 runs fine), but at the regular desktop, where sometimes the entire screen will flicker, but usually it's a windowed program (even simple one like Notepad) will flash black\ white. Usually it is just a single window that flashes, not the whole screen. Very random, very quick.
Have tried different drivers (currently 21.8.2), Freesync off\ on, reset card. Win10 is 100% up-to-date.

Any luck guys, I too managed to get asus tuf 6700xt and I am getting the exact same issues as you guys, I just hope it is software related, maybe asus needs to drop another bios.
Have you guys tried setting power plan to performance?
I have, also tried both BIOS in my card. I'm starting to suspect it has something to do with my freesync monitor's minimum refresh rate. It's a Gigabyte G34WQC
I am not sure about that, have you tried performance power plan, I have been using it for around 8h for now and haven't encountered these issues, you should try it too. I will update you soon.
Been having this exact same issue since I got the card, TUF 32 GB 6700XT..
I thought running triple monitors was the issue, but nope.
Any word on a fix yet? This is super crappy.
Amd has not announced anything yet.
This driver available only via windows update for w11 insiders channel. It works much better, instead black flashing and black squares on windows there are only few black artifacts.
I'm defo getting less flashing now I've turned the FPS 'Chill' option off (on by default). Not cured, just better.
I've been trying to fix this issue for over 2 weeks now, I'm actually relieved I've found others having the same issue tbh..
I have an ASUS 6700XT - Exact same issue.
I actually purchased this pre-built brand new less then 2 weeks ago. Do we have no choice but to wait for AMD, or shall i try contact retailer/manufacturer?
uwp driver that i posted above totaly resolve the issue for me, no any black screen flashing and black windows, only minor issue left - some times in case with black windows/screens i have a few little artifacts on windows but they imidiatly disappears
So it is a software related issue?
Looks like it’s a software issue. I already do rma my asus rx 6700 xt about 4 months , new card that I took after rma have same issue. Only beta uwp driver helps me to resolve issue, hopes it will release soon to production
Ok that is relieving to know, thanks for info.
