Hello community,

iam new and i got a very weird issue while turning G-Sync on. If i turn G-Sync on only, itll flicker. If i take V-Sync ( like your recommended method on this site) it stops flickering and works fine. What causes this? I also still have minor flickering in KF 2 screen when the picture isn´t moving for example loading screens or ingame while buying a weapon . But never in actual gameplay. Does it have something to do with the driver? Cause i can´t explain to myself why this happens.

It's something to do with the monitor and LFC kicking off/on. Hopefully it gets fixed with a new monitor firmware or Nvidia/AMD driver. It's not just you.

I have this flickering in both my VA monitors(A Viotek 32" 165h 1080p & an Acer 43" 120hz 3840x1200.) I've seen complaints of this issue with the Odyssey around the web but it doesn't seem to be exclusive to those models. To note I don't currently have any non-VA monitors so it may not even be a panel thing.
