Considering the number of units sold and the few reports of this, it does not seem to be a general issue. Maybe describe your setup in more detail to give others a chance to narrow down your issue or confirm similar problems.
Using an 8K hdmi certified cable. Tested on other monitors and it’s working fine.
4k is the res I am using. Seems to be fine in 1080P with Display port. It seems using hdmi ports tho they over heat or something causes them to stop working after a few hours.
This isn’t always it’s intermitted but when it happens it’s generally during a game or something. It does happen just on desktop
Not too sure what other info is useful. It just happens to me over time, cant seem to narrow down what causes the issue.
Suggestions to get a more stable experience are trying out some of these settings: toggling off VRR, toggling off HDR, reducing max refresh rate to 120hz and trying to change the color space to sRGB.
I hope your issue gets fixed via the firmware update in Jan. No permanent compromises should be tolerated by you or any other client.
I only had my screen since a few days and used it with my work laptop at 4k 60hz over USB-C. No problems there so far.
But I also bought it for PC gaming and have more or less the same setup as you with a desktop featuring a 3080 connected with HDMI 8k certified cable. Will post if I experience any issues once I get a chance to game on it for extended periods of time.
I have another query, when I updated to firmware version 104, some of the settings were missing or left grayed or dimmed like it was non-functional. Is it upgrade related or is it normal that the choices in the Performance option settings in the monitor is “non-or-NOT highlighted as it should be.
And also, when I toggle to the dimmed or grayed option in the choices in the Performance settings from the monitor, it just skips the dimmed option or the highlight bar does not focus on that part of the toggled Down or up portion. It simply skips it.
I’m running firmware 104, and have had a number of issues (described in other threads) with my EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 connected via a Belkin branded HDMI 2.1 cable including: frequent flickering, split/mirror imaging on monitor, and not recognizing an active video connection.
So far there is no solution short of restarting my device. Powering the monitor off and on only temporarily relieves the flickering issue, but does nothing for the other symptoms. Sadly, it looks like we’re still helping test this product.
Over Display Port 1.4 with my GTX 1070 I also experience flickering. it could be an issue with the current NVIDIA Driver, if you have that installed, the Problem also got discussed at another Thread in this Forum.
Hey @DreddImpact the toggled off settings you are mentioning are due to HDR. When enabled, HDR forces the screen to respect defined values, such as brightness and contrast. This is I believe, to enable the best HDR result possible. You can toggle HDR off and see whether it helps. Enjoy your Spectrum
I’d just like to point out, even if it may be redundant, that on my not very new GPU, HDMI is an older version and I only get a great signal over DP. Even with high quality HDMI cable, GPU is still limiting factor.
May be unrelated, but I did not know this HDMI version thing. Apparently HDMI 2.x caught up, but some time ago DP was ahead of HDMI.
Before installing Firmware 104 I wasnt getting the flickering issue with HDMI 2.1 on a EVGA 3080 FTW3. I was only getting black screen issue. Is there a way to install the previous version, I rather deal with the black screen for now where turning off and on the monitor was a temporary fix. The flickering is annoying and happens more often.
