            Bug ID: 105744
           Summary: randomly flashing screen with RX 580
           Product: xorg
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/AMDgpu
          Assignee: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org

I recently bought a Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ 4 GB GDDR5 and I'm using the
amdgpu drivers on ArchLinux with xmonad.

Unfortunately the entire screen flashes randomly, usually correlated with
clicking the mouse button in chrome. Enabling TearFree makes no difference,
disabling the hardware cursor makes no difference.

I do not wish to use amdgpupro, for ethical reasons.

I can perform more diagnostics if needed, but I appreciate that this is a very
difficult to reproduce problem so my hopes of a solution are low...
