@rowanhopkins98 It’s likely to do with your settings. For example, check below topics:

Been a lot more like it scattered around the internet.

I use NVIDIA and can’t replicate your issue. I’m windows 11 Pro, Brave 1.57.53 (while testing, but there’s actually an update right now too, so 1.57.57), etc.


hey i have a very similar issue i’m using a zotac trinity rtx 3090 and an i9900k

only started happening two months ago and the gpu also artefacts on game start up sequences on some unreal games but goes no further than this everything runs and performs as usual even able to play cyberpunk path tracing update without artefacts
i can run games at 4k 100 plus fps mostly no issues
just youtube shows major artefacts.
starting to think this is a zotac 30 series problem
