Comment 1 Matti Hämäläinen 2016-09-22 14:29:58 UTC
This issue looks visually very similar to https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95414 .. which in my case could be circumvented by disabling TearFree. Perhaps it is not the exact same issue, but might be worth trying to disable TearFree if you have it enabled?
Comment 2 Konstantin Svist 2016-09-22 23:09:35 UTC
Yes, disabling TearFree seems to fix it for me, as well as avoiding OOM condition that also happens while playing fullscreen.
Will this be fixed in the near future?
Comment 3 Matti Hämäläinen 2016-10-06 09:44:15 UTC
Alas, I am only a user, not developer, so I can't answer when or if it will be fixed. However, your report(s) do not include Xorg.log or other information about your setup so I can only guess that you are using DRI2. With DRI3 (+TearFree, if you wish) this issue does not present itself, but I should warn that DRI3 has/may have other problems.

Sorry for the late reply, I'm not subscribed to this bug #.
Comment 4 Chris Wilson 2016-11-07 20:46:30 UTC
The visual glitches here are not originating from the ddx; the pattern here is consistent with GL rendering. Nevertheless, the same kernel fix is definitely required.
