I am having an issue where the apparent refresh of my display is much lower than what I am setting it to in nvidia-settings. I am setting the refresh rate to 144 Hz (which my monitor is capable of), but the motion is very coarse and the screen is visibly flickery, as if I am looking at a fluorescent light tube. Unscientifically, it looks slower than a regular computer, so less than 60 Hz. These problems strangely do not occur at the login screen, with no flickering and the mouse motions are as smooth as I would expect at 144 Hz.
As mentioned I am using driver 375.66-11 and a single GTX1070, my monitor is an ASUS PG279Q. My distribution is Manjaro Linux using the Budgie desktop environment.
Any ideas about what is going on? I have attached the nvidia-bug-report.sh output.
