Black flicking artifacts Like Kanashi, Falkentyne, ClockClocker and probably a few others, I am also getting these very quick, (usually) black flickers in several games. This is while using an entirely new Sapphire 7850 OC. The severity of these flickers appears to be highly dependent on the driver version. Significant underclocking has no effect. Of all the drivers I've tried, 12.8 has resulted in the most artifacts in the games I've tested. I made a longer post about my experience here: http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=4408913&postcount=50 At the very least, I'd like to get some sort of confirmation as to whether this is a hardware issue, or a driver/software issue. But, there just doesn't seem to be enough information on the problem at present. At least if it was a hardware issue, I could simply RMA and move on.
