GPU - 3080ti - G-Sync enabled
Dual Monitor setup (Spectrum via HDMI 2.1, 1080p via DP)
RTO - Normal
Connected Spectrum for the first time via HDMI 2.1 (Eve brand) after being exclusively on DP 1.4 and noticed some negative issues.
Black screen occurs intermittently, and also rapidly “flickers” off/on for brief moments at random. This occurs in game Warzone, as well as during desktop browsing. The issue is worse on Input 2 vs Input 1.
In some cases the screen goes compley black after changing the game Render resolution from 50 to 100.
I was able to tab out of the game, return to Win desktop. Then could see the game running in the Thumbnail preview of the Taskbar. How’s selecting the game returned to a black screen.
Fixes were force quiting, or the monitor needed to be power cycled. Or worse, the PC would need to be reset.
When I was able to experience HDMI 2.1 in-game, the experience was noteably less responsive than DP 1.4. It was comparable to what gaming in 60hz feels like when looking left to right in game rapidly. However the monitor was set at 144hz.
Is there something not set properly on my end? The cable is seated properly in the monitor, and GPU.
In-game I do have an FPS limit set of 144hz in matches, and 60hz in the Menu. Also running Reflex+Boost.
