Screen Tearing

Hi All,

I'm getting screen tearing and I have tried several things I've seen on Google Search, including updating drivers, ensuring G-Sync is working etc. but nothing is working. The screen tearing is all the time, not only when in games. Just looking at pics off my phone it is visible. Here is my hardware specs

GPU - NVIDIA RTX 2080 Founders Edition Monitor - Dell - S2716DG 27.0" 2560x1440 144 Hz Monitor with G-Sync Memory - 32GB 3200 DDR4

Thanks!

Are you using a DisplayPort 1.2 cable? Have you tested using this: https://www.nvidia.com/coolstuff/demos#!/g-sync

Yeah, using DP 1.2 cable. No, I'll try that tonight when I get home. Thanks for the suggestion.

I tried several things and only thing that works is dropping my refresh rate from 144 to 100 in the NVIDIA Control Panel app.
