Finally decided to get a 144hz freesync monitor and there’s an issue with intermittent black screens and graphical distortion (can be noticed a split second after black screen goes away. Like artifacting on a bad OC) when running games. Windows enviroment is fine, but when ever i start a game and the gpu is stressed the intermittent blackouts (lasts for 1-2seconds) start. For what I’ve read this seems to be a common issue with AMD gpu users that utilize the displayport.
So I was wondering if there’s an updated firmware I could try out for the card in question? Mine has 015.044.000.007.000000. Device ID 1002-67B1 – 1787 2343.
Seems like it could have something to do with power delivery for the displayport control chip or port or something along those lines that perhaps corrupt the DP signal for a moment. Occurrence of this issue can be drastically lessened by switching from dp1.2 mode to dp1.1 and taking down the refresh rate to say 100hz. Other users also report that it does not happen on DVI and HDMI.
