Have you tried tweaking the window manager under System -> Preferences -> Look & Feel -> MATE Tweak -> Windows ?

i have not, but i am about to. i will post with the resluts in about 10 mins

looks like that might have done the trick, i changed the windows manager to compiz (advanced gpu accelerated desktop effect)
i will test it later on with a more detailed video of higher quality.

tyvm for the help my friend it is very much appreciated!

I con confirm I get this issue (and always have) on my AMD APU. Unless you use a compositing window manager, you’ll get these lines.

AMD are not very supportive of GNU/Linux so this is really the only solution.
