Xiaomi Mi Monitor Screen Flickering with G-Sync on a FreeSync

I have a brand new Xiaomi Mi 34" Curved Gaming Monitor and its amazing. but I have a 2080 GPU and when I follow this guide and enable g-sync on it the screen keeps flicking in games (WoW)

It's really annoying and without it on its blurry and so I'm not sure what to do or what I can do, anyone else have this problem?

This seemed to have fixed it somewhat, putting it to 90-144 however its a hit and miss sometimes..


  • I just got the same screen (and have an rtx 2080 too!) but haven't tried it in freesync / gsync yet.

    However, I have read several times that the display port cable you use can affect black frame and brightness flickering in gsync (Google: gsync flickering displayport cable), not just for this monitor but many using the freesync version of gsync. Are you using the DP cable that came with the monitor or another?

  • try messing with the refresh rate in the nvidia control panel

  • It's supposed to be 144hz with Freesync and 100-120hz with G-Sync. Try setting it to 100 or 120hz in the Nvidia Control Panel and see if you get the same issue?

  • I'm having the same issue and I thought there's something wrong with my graphics card or the display/cable. Browsing Xbox game pass is easiest way to replicate this, although pretty evident on games which are 16:9 full screen or while multitasking.. Dropping it down to 100 hz fixed it for me, but I'm not happy that I have to drop down to 100Hz. If anybody knows a fix, please keep us posted.

  • ok so none of this helped its still flashing or flicking even at 50hz i even tried to play around with https://www.reddit.com/r/nvidia/comments/agcj4a/how_to_elimi... and still no luck whats going on here?? is my screen faulty?
