Brave Browser Flickering

Hello everyone. If you use a search engine to search for “Brave flickering” you can see that the issue is around here since 2021 for some users.

The things I tried to solve the issue:

  1. Disabling hardware acceleration on Brave settings (When I do Brave starts using too much CPU - Hits %30 and keeps it around %15-20)
  2. on brave://flags - set OpenGL and Vulkan as “Enabled” (My laptop has dual GPU and solved the issue but I don’t want to Brave use my performance card because my fans start running faster. Also, only enabling vulkan or OpenGL not solving the issue)
  3. Which I choose to it. On your computer’s settings: Graphic Settings> Brave> Options and set it to run only one GPU instead of letting the Windows handle it option. I chose AMD and the issue is solved without more CPU usage.

My device specs:

Processor AMD Ryzen 5 5600H with Radeon Graphics 3.30 GHz
Installed RAM 8.00 GB (usable: 7.36 GB)
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
2nd GPU: Nvidia GeForce 3060
OS: Windows 11 Home

Drivers are all updated

Same issue on me!

As far as I understand this problem occurs in systems with 2xGPUs. I’ve another PC, a desktop, with one discrete GPU, and there is no problem at all! While this issue appears on laptop which has AMD/NVIDIA gpu. At the moment I have also solved it by dedicating to Brave only AMD graphic.

Still waiting for this problem to be solved permanently.

Brave: Version 1.57.49 Chromium: 116.0.5845.96 (Official Build) (64-bit)
System: Windows 11 Pro, 22H2
GPU #1: AMD Radeon (Renoir) [HP]
GPU #2: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti [HP]

I’m also getting the same issue , it happens on brave only and not firefox. Typing in textboxes also causes the text to flicker and it feels not stable as they characters are no registered as well as in firefox

I have the same issue if by flickering you mean the window goes black for a few seconds. It’s happened 5 times just today.
