Game issue or faulty GPU?

Updated everything, ran Valley Benchmark for 20 mins, Metro Redux benchmark, and Witcher 3, no issues whatsoever. Ran NMS for 5 minutes, issue occurs.

Apparently I'm not the only one. I saw some posts on steam back in 2016:Post 1Post 2. Granted mine was more severe.

I saw a comment suggesting to disable steam overlay and another suggesting to set Texture to medium. Did both and ran the game for over an hour. No issues so far. Really hope this is just a bug in the game.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I'm trying to tweak the settings of No Man's sky and I noticed that there are some artifacting on my screen. These artifacts only show up when I play NMS, and persists even after I quit the game. After restarting the PC, the screen is clear again.

What I found odd is that when I open the settings menu in-game (pressing esc), these artifacts become blurred (the white dot in the image), as if they are part of the game.

But if I take a screenshot, the artifacts appear. Note that I do not see these in game. I only see the white dots 'behind' the menu.

I tried restarting the PC, then running around in Witcher 3 for a few minutes, and the artifacts did not appear.

Any ideas?

I'm running stock settings though.

then drop them further. It's not unheard before that factory overclocks are too aggressive and GPUs wear down enough to malfunction within its lifespan.

I mean if you want a second opinion you can always download OCCT and do the donut of doom test as there's an option to check if your GPU is fine or not.

Apparently I'm not the only one. I saw some posts on steam back in 2016:Post 1Post 2. Granted mine was more severe.

I saw a comment suggesting to disable steam overlay and another suggesting to set Texture to medium. Did both and ran the game for over an hour. No issues so far. Really hope this is just a bug in the game.

Thanks for the suggestions!
