I have problem with screen flashing/flickering on AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series in Windows 11 (latest build). Screen flash then window/apps goes black (see attachment).

In Windows 10 i don't have this problem anymore. Any solution? Do i need to wait for Windows 11 AMD GPU drivers?

Agree with a clean install if you're having issues. That said, I did the Insiders in-place upgrade and had no issues with my AMD R9 Fury running the Adrenalin 21.5.2 drivers. I bought this card in 2015.

You can also see if Windows 11 auto updates the drivers.

See my primary computer.

Win 11 22000.65, Radeon RX 6900XT, Adrenaline drivers 21.6.2. No such issues.

I did a clean install of 11 (22000.51 at the time) using an ISO from uupdump.net. An upgrade from Win10 completed, but it was buggy. The clean install has been solid so far (touch wood).

I have an Asus X470 Crosshair VII Motherboard, R5 5600X and am running a MSI RX 6600 XT Gaming X GPU. I was getting screen flashes and periodic "blackening out" of windows content. Drivers are up to date as of June 20, 2022. I changed my cable from a very thin (supposedly VESA certified 8K displayport cable to the cable included with my 34" monitor". I used BOTH the AMD cleanup and DDU to decimate existing driver content, then reinstalled latest Adrenalin driver. Since I have done that I don't seem to be having problems. Let's hope it stays that we. But it's good to hear that other AMD models have had the problem, so it appears to be a driver issue and not a defective card.

I had that going on for a LONG time. I have all AMD guts and I had to uninstall the Radeon software. I use current updated windows 11 using Dual Monitors on a brand new PC build and the flickering was beyond annoying. I reinstalled the latest Win11 Pro about 2 weeks ago and no longer use ANY tweaking or theming software, just going stock themes etc and No AMD software, just their basic drivers installed and I have ZERO issues now. The software worked great on my PC until idk one of their updates and bam it was flicker city. So thats why i dont use it anymore. So if you have Radeon software installed Uninstall it and reboot and see what happens.

I restored Windows 11 from a June 8, 2022 backup I had made. So far the screen flickering seems to be gone. What changed between then and the start of the flickering? Well, I installed Windows 11 OPTIONAL update Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. - Display 26.20.13002.133. That might not have been the cause because it was already present in the system as of April 17 when I installed Win11. I also installed Freemake Video Converter, and K-Lite_Codec_Pack_1698_Standard. The AMD video driver has not changed since May. All the regular Win11 updates have been installed as usual. I'm running chrome and vivaldi browsers, but have not touched Opera browser since the restore, but I doubt a browser update would cause screen flicker. I had the same problem as the guy who started this thread. Flickers, and blackened out window contents. I don't think I touched or updated any other program. K-Lite Codec Pack seems suspicious as well as the optional AMD driver. I run my OS on C drive and data on D drive, so restoring from backup is pretty easy to do, then re-update. I installed a couple small games, but other than that there were no major changes. I ran AMD cleanup utility and DDU in Safe Mode and that didn't do a thing. Maybe making note of this might help someone else track down what caused the problem. Cheers.

I bought NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series in 2021. No more flashing screen.

My brother had problems with Display Errors on AMD Radeon RX 6900XT. Now he have NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series like me and works without problems. I will never again buy AMD GPU.

I fixed the flickering with a restore from June 8, 2022 as reported. I bought an MSI 6600 XT that runs Far Cry 6 on high settings at well over 100FPS on 1440p ultrawide. And the total system power draw is 250 watts. As the great reset continues to raise energy costs, I'm staying on the medium end of the spectrum. And the 6600 XT runs silent and really cool. I simply don't need anything else. I don't NEED an nvidia 3000 or 4000 power hog system. Heck, I don't really like AAA games that much anyway. More casual games at low wattage are good enough for me. The triple AAA games these days are just a bunch of Souls clones hack and slash repeatedly. Who needs them? Flickering fixed and I don't need no damn nvidia. AMD has FSR and RSR which are really breaking through now. My nvidia 2070 burned out twice. The 2060 still works, but I have not had an AMD card fail on me. I've still got a fanless AMD HD5770 that works just fine during tests. As I reported, something I installed between June 8 to June 20 buggered up Windows 11. It's fixed now. AMD has been good to me, and it's lower wattage! And I don't need no ray tracing for the 1% of games I'll play out of the hundred or so games that support it. AMD ray tracing will catch up soon enough, and frankly, it's not needed.
