Description Arek Tumas 2018-09-22 08:36:24 UTC
I'm experiencing some interlacing on the right side of the screen of my 1440p 144hz monitor when using 4.18+ kernels and setting the monitor to 120+ hz It works fine with 100hz and lower, or older kernels, which seems to indicate some displayport bandwidth issue/regression. This happens regardless of the distro or mesa version. I'm using an RX Vega 64 with the opensource driver.

Please attach the dmesg output.
Comment 2 Nicholas Kazlauskas 2018-09-24 13:27:38 UTC
This is likely fixed. It may be worth testing the amd-staging-drm-next kernel from:


or applying the proposed patch from the bug report at:


Please let me know if you're seeing an issue with either of these.

Comment 4 Arek Tumas 2018-09-24 14:36:29 UTC
Yes it is probably the same bug. It's a right-most vertical interlaced line. I'm currently experiencing this bug in the newest ubuntu mainline kernel (4.19-rc5). [It's not an issue on 4.18.8 kernel] I'm relatively inexperienced, Applying kernel patches seems a little difficult for me. I only know how to install mainline kernels from ukuu or .deb files. I can try if someone links me clear instructions. Thank You for Your time and help. I hope this will be fixed in future Linux kernel versions.
