    The issue of random flickering across multiple monitors that support adaptive sync, with G-SYNC enabled, is now fixed.

    I had the same issue with my computer with screen flickering every now and then and apps jumping around .. I never knew it was due to g-sync. The second issue was that Microsoft had installed the graphics driver .. now I have downloaded this driver. Let’s see how it goes. I’ll report here if the issue still persists.
