Will test and reply back with findings.

Cheers
Quite honestly it could be anything. I had that happen to me once and replacing the cable did fix the problem, but had another machine with similar issue and it turned out to be the video card causing the issue. I would test your monitor on another machine to rule out the monitor maybe if you can.

I'll give that a try.
Are you using the DPort cable that came with the monitor?

Freesync turned on, G-Sync on in Nvidia CP, Vsync left to each game. Has what looks like backlight flicker though depends on the game as to how bad. Tried all sorts but never got it to go away.
Infuriating thing is I've seen people reporting same monitor and no problem at all.

Other than that, a great monitor :-)

For all I know, I'll never be able to use NVIDIA again due to their poor driver support.

I understand they don't see AMD as competition at this point, but this is getting ridiculous.

I'm literally going to have to sell my 1080 Ti because NVIDIA dropped the ball so hard on their drivers. I honestly thought I'd never see the day. I switched from ATI to NVIDIA in the first place many years back due to the drivers. And now NVIDIA seems to be giving me the boot back to AMD.
How did you check for input lag? I have C7 + 1080 Ti and did not really notice it. I have been using 4XX. Also, have AMD card on my second system using the same TV.

davidm71 So as I understand it there is no 9-series card support? Only 10 series can play?
