I recently purchased a Samsung CHG90 144Hz gaming monitor. I've been very pleased with it, however, I'v encountered a rather strange problem. I've noticed periodic horizontal distortions that move up the screen, creating a sort of "ripple" effect. I've recorded a video of the issue, it can be most clearly seen at about the 20 second mark in the upper left hand corner:
Initially, I assumed it had something to do with screen tearing. While this monitor has free-sync, I'm using an Nvidia graphics card, so I can't avail myself of this technology. However, even when I enable vertical-sync in the in game options, I still notice this issue. I assume if it were a form of screen tearing v-sync would solve this issue? I've noticed this problem in a number of different games (not just the racing game I recorded), and I've only observed it when the screen is showing moving imagery. The monitor is connected through a display port connection on the graphics card. I've tried all three display port outlets on my graphics card, and they all exhibit the same issue. Any suggestions on what might be causing this issue would be hugely appreciated. Thanks!
