Until recently I experienced no screen tearing. However after some update, not sure exactly, I have started noticing tearing in videos and even when scrolling down webpages.
I was wondering if anyone suddenly started seeing this behavior?
- Nvidia GTX 650 Ti
- Nvidia 384.111 drivers (latest from updates)
- 16.04.4 LTS
- HDMI connection
- Macro (Compton)
- 1920x1080 @ 60hz
Now I read the forums about enabling flipping (which is off) and triplebuffer (which isn’t set). Still since 16.04 until recently all was working great and again wanted to see if others have seen this too. Also no the system isn’t stressed or running out of memory or anything.
I did have an old Samsung LCD (like nine years old hooked to a much newer system go figure) and realize horizontal tearing can start to occur as a monitor or cable starts to die. So I was “forced” to buy a new Asus LCD with eye care technology and even picked up a new cable. The issue is totally related to software as the same problem continues. Oh “darn” I bought a new monitor.
Thanks for sharing your experience.
