Video shearing/tearing
 
While dragging a window on the desktop, or while playing a game...or watching an in-game video, I infrequently see a horizontal "tearing" or shearing of the image.

At the suggestion of another thread, i've tried turning off AMD Overdrive in CCC.
Other threads about this discuss a lot of this happening to them. But for myself it is maybe 6 times a day I notice this...but it is still disappointing and i'd like to try and fix it.

Anyone familiar with this?

I've used both of these drivers:

11-1_vista64_win7_64_dd_ccc_enu
11-1_vista64_win7_64_dd_ccc_ocl

does it pass a benchmark like furmark? hows temps, your psu should be fine but change power

connector and pci-e slot just in case. probably drivers/soft related.

no oc right?

This is what vsync fixes.... enable it.

Also in the CCC ensure in the "Video" under "Basic Quality" that the interlacing feature is either set to "automatic" or something of your chocing, I recommend "vector adaptive"

Not overclocking...no.
I have nothing to benchmark with. But it just went through a 30 minute test at NCIX...and there was no issues.

Thanks. I will turn on the vsync in the games. Didn't see it in CCC. So many options in there. Easy to get lost in it. I should look for a manual for it.

The interlacing was on automatic.
I'll leave it there and first see if the vsync helps. If not, I will try vector adaptive.
