I was so excited to see the release of the 470.74 driver release as I have not been able to get past the memory leak on dx12 games with proton. However, with the new update it appears gsync is no longer working unless I revert back to a previous driver version.
I am currently using an LG-27gl83a-b which had worked previously on ever other driver version
currently on linux kernel 5.14.6, this occurs in every game.
Disabling gsync in nvidia-settings allows flicker to stop, however, now gsync is not active.
Edit: I am on a 3080
I had made a post on reddit and multiple other people were having a similar issue. However, a trend I am noticing is it is the gsync compatible and freesync displays. One reddit user has a gsync only display and said they were having no issues. Other than that I don’t know of other users that are not having the issue.
