Flickering in Counter Strike: Global Offensive

Question asked by dqpowered on Apr 19, 2017

Hello there,


I'm having some issues in CS:GO after the Crimson update. Everything was running well and it still is, but sometimes it looks like the drivers stop and restart. So for like 5-10 seconds I'm having FPS drops and artifacts, then the ,,Instant replay" pops up and everything works fine. It happens occasionally. Sometimes in first 5-10 minutes when I jump in the match or when I open up the STEAM overlay in-game. The game is running in 1280x720 streched and I've set the monitor to run at 75hz, it happens even when I have 2560x1440 on 60hz.

EDIT: After like 2 or more reboots I can't play CS:GO in stretched mod at 4:3. I need to have my GPU Scaling enabled and play 16:9.
