Having same issue as in thread:

CS:GO Screen flickering issue during menuing as well as in game

Since I was unable to find any solutions on internet, asking it again.

Issue is observed when running game with FPS higher than monitor refresh rate.

Limiting fps with fps_max variable and vsync resolves the problem, however it's not a good workaround.


Just recorded video and uploaded to youtube:

Issue happens around 6 and 38 seconds in to the video. After 40 seconds changed fps_max_menu to 120 so issue doesn't appear.


Computer Type: Desktop Custom.

GPU: R9 Fury Nitro OC -> stock factory overclock

CPU: i7-3770 stock clocks

Motherboard: AsRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3

RAM: Kingston DDR3 1600 - stock clocks

PSU: EVGA 650 G2

Operating System & Version: Win 10 x64

GPU Drivers: Crimson 16.7.3 WHQL

Chipset Drivers: Should be latest from Intel website -> will update when have access to PC

Background Applications: Tested with everything turned off -> Clean boot.

Monitor: Benq XL2730Z connected via Display port. Description of Problem: CS GO @ 1280x1024 Full screen 144hz stretched to full panel. During game having white stripes across screen looks like something from behind the window is rendering over the game.

Troubleshooting: Problem was not present in the same configuration with R9 390 Gigabyte gaming. Before installing R9 Fury cleaned drivers with DDU from safe mode.

Tried both display ports on R9 Fury -> same issue.

Monitor doesn't run @ 144hz when connected via dvi-d or hdmi 1.4 ports available on R9 Fury.

Tested with Clockblocker -> same issue.

Tested power saving on/off -> same issue.

Tested freesync on/off -> same issue.

Enabling Vsync in game settings -> problem not present, but that is a bad workaround since it adds input lag which is BAD for competitive play.

Issue not present in other Source games like Dota2/HL2/L4D2.


Possible workaround:

Running CS GO in compatibility with Windows 8 problem not present however 10-20% performance hit.

15.11.1 fixes the issue on CSGO also.


AMD has to look into that.
