    I’ve got laptop:

    Acer Predator G9-593
    Intel Core i7-6700HQ (2.6Ghz/3.5Ghz) (https://goo.gl/dehk14)
    Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 (8Gb GDDR5) (https://goo.gl/z2aEFL)
    15.6inch 1920x1080 (G-Sync) (IPS)
    16Gb DDR4-2400 / PC4-19200 (2x ACR24D4S7S8MB-8)
    Windows 10 x64
    Nvidia driver - 378.49
    And one strange issue. Sometimes, in games, my screen will just blink/blackout, for less then a second. Happens extremely rare, in totally random situations, and only when g-sync is enabled. I don’t have gameplay with this issue cause it can take ages to catch it on camera, but I found scenario when these blinks happen more often, its in FurMark launched in fullscreen, take a look:

    G-Sync is ON – youtube DOT com/watch?v=UmhxbsBjIOc
    G-Sync is OFF – youtube DOT com/watch?v=Vh1zPYBuT_0

    Sorry, for crapped link, don't have 10 posts here.

    dont know bro
    but do you know if your frame rate is dropping below 45 FPS?
    you could have driver issues or laptop issues as well, since the technlogy is still new and far from perfect.
    it would be better to ask other users who have your same laptop on the oem forums.
    I was an early adopter of freesync but was not too impressed with it so I dont use it much anymore and it is still buggy as hell.
