Screen randomly flashes black at times on RTX 2080

Its been 7 days since I bought the RTX 2080 Founders edition and sometimes while gaming or web browsing my screen randomly flashes black, sometimes once, sometimes a couple of times and then resumes normally. I have already checked my cables and everything is tight. Is the card dying or is it the drivers? The card is connected to a G-Sync monitor.

Did you install new drivers? an update was released like yesterday

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

20 series are known for flashes with multi monitors, and other funky problems with gsync, see if it still happens on one monitor.

Its happening on 1 monitor. I don't have a multi monitor setup. It could be G-Sync though but why is it happening on the desktop where GSync isn't activated

No. Their latest driver says stuff about flickering being fixed but the problem got worse for me

it's monitor specific, so if you have a gsync monitor, gotta wait for a drivers fix, i imagine the problems are pretty complicated and it'll be fixed with some time, every driver til 416.94 has seen decreased flashing. Some new problems got introduced in the 417.xx released yesterday, avoid for now.

Have you seen any errors show up in the log where the PCIe bus was reset? I had problems with Nvidia cards where errors in the driver resulted in logged resets that showed what the errors were and allowed Nvidia to fix them.
