Hi everyone.

Currently having some issues with my new GPU or display when I turn VRR on. it seems at random the screen will go black for a couple of seconds and return to normal. it seems also that it's a display issue since the image acts regular on videos I've recorded where the issue happens. I've looked everywhere but the issue doesn't seem to be common. It also mostly happens when I'm playing certain unoptimised games that tank my fps on occasion.
My main display is an acer ED273UR connected via HDMI. have a second display runing at 60 fps but tried disconnecting it to see if it was contributing to the issue but it kept happening.

my current processor is a ryzen 2600x and the PSU a corsair TX 850M gold. Don't think any of these are relevant for the issue tho.

If anyone has any clue as to what is happening I'd appreciate some advice.

I would keep VRR off
that's what I'm doing at the minute to not run into any more black screens but I would like to know what the underlying issue is. IS it a drivers issue? is my GPU faulty in some way? hopefully there'll be a set of tests/troubleshooting I can carry out.
