    The issues being discussed in this thread are a continuation of multiple threads come and gone over the last year or so. Please read this post CAREFULLY in it's entirety BEFORE replying, to avoid re-hashing the same thing over and over. 
     
    Description of the Problems/Issues:
    A significant number of PC gamers have reported experiencing some or all of the following graphical issues after changing nothing with their system. Everything looked "fine" one day and "terrible" the next. The difference or change was/is drastic and disruptive enough to notice beyond what is normally accepted as "typical graphical anomalies" observed in various games. 
     
    -Most or all forms of AA filtering broken or non-effective.  
    -Increased texture, shadow pop-in, Z-fighting.
    -Shadows appear more jagged.
    -Increased "flickering" on high-detailed objects (due to poor/broken AA filtering) - "dancing white dots" during movement.
    -General decrease in LOD in all games (new and old).
     
    PLEASE NOTE: These issue go beyond typical and commonly known graphical issues with certain games. Example: GTA5 - LOD box definition, object pop-in, Minecraft - anisotropic filtering bug etc. The specific issues in question also go beyond the results of low detail settings and or low PPI displays and any combination there of. The issue is: specific aspects of how the image is rendered has changed from a higher to [much] lower quality, without having changed anything (to the user's knowledge), seemingly "overnight". 
     
    ALSO NOTE: These issues have been observed on Intel and AMD (FM2+ and AM3+ or older)-based systems, running both Nvidia and AMD GPUs. It has also been primarily observed on systems running Windows. 
     
    Here is an example of the difference. Both videos are running the same game on the same display with the same resolution and graphics settings. @BuckGup first noticed the excessive jaggies in the menu of this game one day, and that was the first tip-off that something had changed (went wrong), even though he did not change anything prior to this happening. This also serves to demonstrate that as far as we know, the problem is fixed after switching to the AMD Ryzen platform. <--- NOTE: some members have now reported that switching to a Ryzen-based system DID NOT fix the issue. Thus, we can only state that this is an inconclusive solution. 
     
    After the problem occurred:
     
     
    Before the problem occurred - the way the game SHOULD look:
     
     
    Solution that have been attempted but did not fix the issue:
    -Swapping out every component in the PC (one at a time and all together).
    -Reformat and clean OS install.
    -Switching from AMD to Nvidia and reverse. 
    -Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10.
    -Running DDU with clean driver installation.
     
    In *some* instances, swapping out components from one system (with the problem) to another system (without the problem), the issue was gone.  ***Details on this to be updated shortly***
     
    Solutions we know have ZERO effect on the issue or are unrelated:
    -"Dirty power" or power-related. By the very nature of how a GPU functions and given the multiple "power-cleaning and conditioning" stages before it reaches the PC and GPU (PSU, VRMs etc), it's simply not possible for this issue to be caused by "dirty" or "infected" power source. So please do not suggest it. 
    -Running games at lower settings and/or on lower PPI (lower pixel density) displays. We all know games look worse in those conditions. That is NOT what this issue is about. Please see the notes already stated above to reiterate. The issue is about an instant decrease in graphical fidelity without having changed anything (settings/software or hardware) with the system.
    -Virus or software "infection" of some kind. If this were the case, a simple wipe or swapping out of the storage drive(s) and clean OS install would fix the issue - but that has not been the case. So it seems; once the issue is there, it is extremely difficult to fix, aside from taking drastic measures. 
     
    Possible solutions that have yet to be confirmed:
    -In *some* cases, building an entirely new system fixed the issue. In *some* cases, this fixed the issue, but only temporarily. 
    -One member  Now two(2) members here on the forums upgraded to AMD's new Ryzen platform and observed nearly all these issues were resolved. 2 members involved in this thread who have both experienced these issues are in the process of testing with a Ryzen based system to see if this holds merit. Further testing in progress... 
    Update: Some members have reported that Ryzen systems are still susceptible to these issues. So the verdict on Ryzen systems being a possible solution is inconclusive at this point (July 2019). 
     
    PLEASE: Do not suggest solutions that have already been attempted or that we know are unrelated, unless you have something new to bring forward that we might have overlooked. 
     
    If you have any new information or corrections to the above information, please send me a PM and I will update. If you don't believe this issue is real or exists, and you have nothing to contribute, then please refrain from posting.
     
    My two cents on this whole situation: At first I was very skeptical. I said "this is just low PPI, low settings, typical game issues with AA etc...". In some specific cases, it was. But there were enough people complaining about this and describing what happened in the same way (there are many more on other threads on other forums), that it made me take notice. It's not about the "graphics" but the "sudden change in graphics" - regrettably and honestly, it took me a while to realize that is what they were really talking about and trying to fix. I personally have not experienced these issues, but I am genuinely curious to see if a solution can be found for those who are stuck with this.

    The issues being discussed in this thread are a continuation of multiple threads come and gone over the last year or so. Please read this post CAREFULLY in it's entirety BEFORE replying, to avoid re-hashing the same thing over and over. 
     
    Description of the Problems/Issues:
    A significant number of PC gamers have reported experiencing some or all of the following graphical issues after changing nothing with their system. Everything looked "fine" one day and "terrible" the next. The difference or change was/is drastic and disruptive enough to notice beyond what is normally accepted as "typical graphical anomalies" observed in various games. 
     
    -Most or all forms of AA filtering broken or non-effective.  
    -Increased texture, shadow pop-in, Z-fighting.
    -Shadows appear more jagged.
    -Increased "flickering" on high-detailed objects (due to poor/broken AA filtering) - "dancing white dots" during movement.
    -General decrease in LOD in all games (new and old).
     
    PLEASE NOTE: These issue go beyond typical and commonly known graphical issues with certain games. Example: GTA5 - LOD box definition, object pop-in, Minecraft - anisotropic filtering bug etc. The specific issues in question also go beyond the results of low detail settings and or low PPI displays and any combination there of. The issue is: specific aspects of how the image is rendered has changed from a higher to [much] lower quality, without having changed anything (to the user's knowledge), seemingly "overnight". 
     
    ALSO NOTE: These issues have been observed on Intel and AMD (FM2+ and AM3+ or older)-based systems, running both Nvidia and AMD GPUs. It has also been primarily observed on systems running Windows. 
     
    Here is an example of the difference. Both videos are running the same game on the same display with the same resolution and graphics settings. @BuckGup first noticed the excessive jaggies in the menu of this game one day, and that was the first tip-off that something had changed (went wrong), even though he did not change anything prior to this happening. This also serves to demonstrate that as far as we know, the problem is fixed after switching to the AMD Ryzen platform. <--- NOTE: some members have now reported that switching to a Ryzen-based system DID NOT fix the issue. Thus, we can only state that this is an inconclusive solution. 
     
    After the problem occurred:
     
     
    Before the problem occurred - the way the game SHOULD look:
     
     
    Solution that have been attempted but did not fix the issue:
    -Swapping out every component in the PC (one at a time and all together).
    -Reformat and clean OS install.
    -Switching from AMD to Nvidia and reverse. 
    -Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10.
    -Running DDU with clean driver installation.
     
    In *some* instances, swapping out components from one system (with the problem) to another system (without the problem), the issue was gone.  ***Details on this to be updated shortly***
     
    Solutions we know have ZERO effect on the issue or are unrelated:
    -"Dirty power" or power-related. By the very nature of how a GPU functions and given the multiple "power-cleaning and conditioning" stages before it reaches the PC and GPU (PSU, VRMs etc), it's simply not possible for this issue to be caused by "dirty" or "infected" power source. So please do not suggest it. 
    -Running games at lower settings and/or on lower PPI (lower pixel density) displays. We all know games look worse in those conditions. That is NOT what this issue is about. Please see the notes already stated above to reiterate. The issue is about an instant decrease in graphical fidelity without having changed anything (settings/software or hardware) with the system.
    -Virus or software "infection" of some kind. If this were the case, a simple wipe or swapping out of the storage drive(s) and clean OS install would fix the issue - but that has not been the case. So it seems; once the issue is there, it is extremely difficult to fix, aside from taking drastic measures. 
     
    Possible solutions that have yet to be confirmed:
    -In *some* cases, building an entirely new system fixed the issue. In *some* cases, this fixed the issue, but only temporarily. 
    -One member  Now two(2) members here on the forums upgraded to AMD's new Ryzen platform and observed nearly all these issues were resolved. 2 members involved in this thread who have both experienced these issues are in the process of testing with a Ryzen based system to see if this holds merit. Further testing in progress... 
    Update: Some members have reported that Ryzen systems are still susceptible to these issues. So the verdict on Ryzen systems being a possible solution is inconclusive at this point (July 2019). 
     
    PLEASE: Do not suggest solutions that have already been attempted or that we know are unrelated, unless you have something new to bring forward that we might have overlooked. 
     
    If you have any new information or corrections to the above information, please send me a PM and I will update. If you don't believe this issue is real or exists, and you have nothing to contribute, then please refrain from posting.
     
    My two cents on this whole situation: At first I was very skeptical. I said "this is just low PPI, low settings, typical game issues with AA etc...". In some specific cases, it was. But there were enough people complaining about this and describing what happened in the same way (there are many more on other threads on other forums), that it made me take notice. It's not about the "graphics" but the "sudden change in graphics" - regrettably and honestly, it took me a while to realize that is what they were really talking about and trying to fix. I personally have not experienced these issues, but I am genuinely curious to see if a solution can be found for those who are stuck with this.

    KenjiD5 got a reaction from App4that in Jagged Shadows,Pop in,Low LOD and jagged aa   
    so this is a theory but might work
     
    we must delete all game files (not format) 
    and even games
    after that we must go to regedit
    i dont know but we should set it all to default
    and we need to search for more game files that is hidden in appdata or something
    then after finally removed
    use ddu and remove driver
    plug a usb/cd/or anything that have the driver installer
    redownload the driver
    download 1 game
    play it.. if it is having a shadow box issue then trash my theory that the games is causing this problem
     
    and one things
     
    the real solution
     
    when i was temporarily banned from linustechtips i decided to bring my pc to a rest house (yeah why would i bring a pc right?)
    we were in vacation so...
     
    my pc is already set and nothing is remove and my pc is small thats why (small casing/small monitor) but still heavy
     
    i plug my pc there
    at first it dont work because i havent notice that some plugs are not plugged
     
    and it finally worked it opened
    see my games in there
     
    i try to play there
    no internet or something just pc with games
     
    it was flawless.. never seen a flaw or something in the graphics
     
    yeah quite impossible..
     
    and i got home last 2 days
     
    plug my pc back in
    have some complications due to cables but i manage to open it again
     
    there it is again
     
    beautiful but goddang issue
     
    but i just play my games now i dont want to die searching for a solution that is might never be find by a man.. im enjoying witcher 3 even with some flaws but its okay.. 
     
     
    so the solution is... fix the electricity in your house or in your goddang neighborhood... or just leave your house and buy another house miles away from your house and live there with your pc...  btw i dont notice flaws in the pc when im in the rest house maybe due to the lightning of the house or i just really think it would work so i dont say that there is really no issue the rest house or is it just me thinking that it actually work but it may.. be

    my pc turned my ark survival : evolved to this!!!!
     
    im just kidding of course..
     
    i get a lot of bugs in game due to this problem 
     
    i believe in the youtube guy that said ups + stabilizer will work
     
    because in the internet i never seen a guy said ups + stabilizer except for him...
     
    i saw some thread saying they were going to upgrade to windows 10, driver or buy an sdd..
     
    then they said it does not work
     
    i search and search for more threads about this in the internet and i never saw a guy talk about ups + stabilizer..
     
    that means no one have tried it yet so this might be the solution and hey bro dont waste your money on new sdd

    i am the dumbest person of the world.. i am sleepy and i think what you said would work.. i open the casing and touch the psu.. try to arrange it or i mean place it properly and BOOM.. i was shock.. the pc is open i forgot that... but why am i still alive

    be there with them.. while they are looking at the games.. point the problems and they should know if it a problem of hardware or not.. anyway i tried cleaning my cpu and it doesnt do anything.. bro reply back if thats done.. if that problem doesnt show on them.. maybe this is a monitor a power problem.. or something more
