Crossfire 'flickering' issue.

Question asked by darkmain on Oct 25, 2016

Issue: When switching from Windowed mode to Exclusive Full Screen (or Alt+Tabbing from exclusive full screen) the game will start to flicker (as shown in the included video). If Crossfire is disabled in the drivers then the issue doesn't happen. The flickering doesn't always happen, but its consistent enough to be replicated.


Once the flickering starts, the only way to fix it is to either, a) play the game in windowed mode and forfeit the power of the second card, or b) restart the game.
The issue happens with many different games (not limited to just Overwatch).



System specs:

Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 14393)

Neither the CPU or GPU are currently overclocked.
