    240hz disconnects displayport?

    okegameg

      Got a new monitor, and was pretty excited to use it. Unfortunately I have the issue where the monitor disconnects from the displayport for 1-3 seconds making games unplayable. I am running 2 monitors, one 60hz and one 240hz. The flickering does not appear on the desktop, nor does it appear when set to 120hz or below. I changed my displayport cable with a VESA-certified one, just to be safe, and that didn't work, so I'm suspecting something funky is going on.

          Hello, I have the same exact issue, I talked to the OP on AMD's discord, my setup is as follows:
          MSI b350 PC MATE
          Ryzen 1700

          r9 290

          2x8gb ddr4 3200mhz 16cl

           

          My 240hz monitor Alienware AW2518HF shows a black screen for 1-3 seconds and then returns to normal, haven't happened until either i got my TV (which was early december 2018), it's a 55' 4k TV and the issues started either around drivers 18.12.2, 18.12.3
