Rendering Issue - Window Constantly Flashing

Just as a heads-up, a few days ago, Brave started behaving extraordinarily strangely. The window would constantly flash when loading a page or opening a new tab or switching between open tabs. I have resolved it by unchecking the “use hardware acceleration” option. The timing seems to coincide with when I installed the latest NVIDIA graphics driver, so I’m guessing there’s probably some sort of issue there.

I’m not sure if it’s on Brave’s end or NVIDIA’s end, but I figured it should be reported either way.

FYI, turns out the situation is apparently related to a bug with hardware acceleration, GPUs, and V-SYNC. See discussion in this thread:

TLDR: The current workaround for users with NVIDIA GPUs is to open the NVIDIA panel and disable V-SYNC specifically for Brave.exe.
