Hey guys, yesterday I bought a Dell S2716DG monitor and today the screen has started glitching.

Every 5-10minutes the right side of the screen will start flickering. Sometimes it stops after a few seconds, other times the screen goes black. It’s connected to my GTX 1070 by display port (I’ve tried two DP cables, same thing happens) and the refresh rate is set to 144hz.

Here’s a video I took of it happening https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWsDA2pfdQU

Any ideas what could be causing this? (let me know if I need to provide more information, just not sure what is relevant)

No other monitors have done this. However they have all been 60hz and this is 144hz. Not sure if that's relevant. I've tried setting the new monitor to 60hz and the flickering happens less... but still happens.

I think you're right, probably going to have to return it. Unfortunately I bought the last one from the company so the return process won't be simple haha.
