    I have a BenQ 144hz monitor with G-sync. I also have an El Gato HD60 for capturing the monitor which I am cloning the monitor to.


    Basically I've found when I am cloning the display with g-sync enabled it causes rapid black flickering on my BenQ monitor while the display is being cloned to my El Gato without any major issues.

    Initially I thought this was related to the higher refresh rate on my BenQ. I was surprised to discover it is only related to G-sync. Even if my Benq is on 60hz, the issue occurs with G-sync turned on.

    It's a minor inconvenience to be honest. I can just turn g-sync off and I don't see the issue even at 144hz. I only post this to see if anyone else has experienced/resolved this issue because I swear it didn't always happen. Not sure if it was switching to windows 10 or a nvidia driver that changed it or even some kind of fault in my hardware.

    Hi,

    I have an Asus VG248QE G-Sync monitor and an Aver media Live Gamer HD lite, and get exactly the same issue you describe with the latest NVidia drivers (361.75/.82).

    I don't get the issue on driver version 361.43.

    Disabling G-Sync removes the flickering...

    I have videos on youtube of it, youtube > pheckr.
    I can't post links because I'm newly registered.

    This is a known issue. We are currently testing a fix which means it likely won't make it in time for the next driver but should be in our following driver.

    Any new info about Fermi DX 12 driver?
    Nvidia very, very quiet about this matter. We only need the fact. Nothing more.

    Experienced this issue this morning. Thought my new XB271HU monitor was going bad, glad its a driver issue and that a fix is being worked on.

    I believe it says this is fixed in the 364.47 release notes.

    I will verify when I get home from work
