Forza 7 Graphics problem

Discussion created by tekel on Jun 16, 2018


Graphics flickering.  Because it's hard to be clear what I mean, here is an example.

It is not persistent, sometimes it flashes the whole screen, sometimes just the horizon or a wall.

Forza Motorsport 7 Graphics issue with Radeon RX 480 - YouTube


The problem only occurs on Forza 7 in certain lighting conditions (usually cloudy or rainy).  It's hard to reproduce on command and also difficult to get it to stop when it is going.  I don't play that many different games so it may occur on many titles.  All video settings in Forza are set to dynamic.  I have tried fiddling with the settings to get rid of the issue and nothing has worked.


Problem started when I upgraded from my old monitor.


Old monitor with no issue

Samsung 22"


60 Hz

DVI connection. 


New monitor with issue

Acer XF270HU 27"

2560 x 1440


Free Sync

Display Port Connection


Problem seems to persists with freesync on or off.  I may have to do more testing on this to be sure.
