    Flickering black squares - Sapphire RX 480 Nitro+ OC


      My System:

      Intel i7 - 6700

      Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133

      Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro+ OC 8GB

      MSI Gaming M5 Z170A

      Acer G276HL (1920*1080@60hz) HDMI + Cintiq 21UX(1600*1200@60hz) DVI-D

      EVGA 750W 80+ Gold

      Windows 10 - 64bit

      16.12.1 Drivers


      My issues:
      I've been experiencing some weird black squares flickering all over the place on my screen.  I have taken a video of the benchmark option for Rise of the Tomb Raider, located here:

      Another issue I've been having is, texture flickering in the Witcher 3.  Here's the video of it:

      Sapphire Radeon RX 480 - Problems #2 - YouTube

      I have tried changing the visual quality of the game, but that doesn't matter.

      This problem does go away if I toggle off the "boost" mode switch on my video card. The game Obduction also has a similar problem but if I toggle off the boost mode, the problem is resolved. 


      Things I've tried:

      I've removed the drivers multiple times, using DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller).  I've also tried going back to an older version of the drivers, but the problem persists. I had a 960 GTX 2GB installed up until a few days ago, but I removed those drivers using DDU. 


      Games like Doom and Overwatch run problem free. No flickering, nothing.


      Any help is appreciated, thanks!
