I have recently upgraded from my 290X to an Asus GTX 1080Ti Founders Edition. I am experiencing a lot of aliasing in all of my games, something I never experienced when using my 290X. Even with AA turned completely off in both game and control panels, the 290X never had such insane amounts of aliasing like the 1080Ti does. It is extremely noticeable and annoying as hell. As we all know having to use MSAA times 4, 6 or 8 absolutely tanks performance and kills the framerate even on a 1080Ti. With my 290X I barely had to use AA because of how tolerable the amount of aliasing was, unlike it is now with the new card.

Screen tearing everywhere, games, YouTube and even when watching video files stored on the computer regardless of video software used (VLC, Windows Media Player etc.). Frames are unsynced and tearing is present to the extent to where it is really freaking annoying and is disturbing the hell out of me. I simply cannot watch nor play anything because of these issues.

Applying changes in the control panel doesnt change anything for the better. Regardless of v-sync types or let 3D application decide settings, there is still awful aliasing in games and tearing pretty much everywhere to the extent where it is unbearable.

This is absolutely not what I was expecting when transitioning from AMD to Nvidia and spending $870 on a new GPU.

before you ask everyone's favourite question about drivers. Yes, I did uninstall the AMD drivers and I did that using the AMD cleanup utility, additionally I also deleted everything AMD drivers related in the registry entries. I have installed the latest Nvidia drivers namely the 381.65.

I am also not getting the kind of performance I was expecting. There is a somewhat noticeable increase in performance but it is not on par with the benchmarks which are posted on the net.

Any help or input is greatly appreciated.

To be sure it's the card, yikes, you may need to do a fresh install of the OS, double yikes!

Yikes indeed, and all this PC gaming crap is one big yike which has been only getting on my nerves as of late.

A fresh OS install is extremely time consuming cause I will have to back up a bunch of data. So this is a very unfavourable potential solution.

its clearly a problem with your windows and the fact that u had a red card before, do a reinstall and you are sorted, the 1080ti is a beast, or like having 3 of your old 290s or something.

This ^


Not sure about the tearing (try forcing triple buffering?), but you can use ReShade's SMAA to deal with some aliasing for now.

Concerning DDU. Should I just do a clean and restart for AMD drivers? Cause the remainders of those can be the ones causing trouble. Or what do you suggest my actions should be at those point when using DDU? What is up with those safe mode warnings, I have no clue about any passwords or windows pins.

My typical procedure is a normal AMD clean uninstall via the control panel, then run DDU in safe mode after that.

So I did a clean install via the reset this PC setting (remove everything) and the afore mentioned issues are still persisting. Awful aliasing everywhere, tearing and fuzziness, blurriness. So the issue is something else. I never gotten such issues with my 290X. I tried various displayport inputs on the GPU but that didn't change a thing either. So its either the GPU being faulty or Nvidia is just cancer if the GPU is working intentionally and the aliasing, tearing and fuzziness I am getting is meant to be that way.

I might try the DVI adapter to connect to the monitor via DVI instead of Displayport but I doubt that will change anything for the better. Running out of options here...

Another issues I forgot to mention is that when my computer enters sleep mode, the monitor cycles through sources instead of remaining black like it used to with the 290X.
