DO NOT PLAY WITH FLICKERING IT CAN DAMAGE YOUR SCREEN
Someone has reported permanent burn in and has show pictures of the aftermath. DO NOT RISK YOUR MONITOR/TV!!!

I read every post and update when ever i can, i cant be on the PC 24/7. A lot of the discussion has been addressed in this first post please read this first.

After doing update and starting up game my game is now flickering BAD!!!. Most of the time its just the text but on certain maps everything flickers. The Game is really unplayable like this. Please watch the video at the bottom to see what a lot of users are experiencing.

This Issue is affecting the following users;
1.) NVIDIA SLI Users
2.) AMD Crossfire Users
3.) NVIDIA GFX cards that have 2 GPU's on a single card.
4.) AMD GFX cards that have 2 GPU's on a single card.

Possible Fix:(from other users - will only put possible fixes that have been shown to work for multiple users not just one)
1.) Turn off SLI

Another possible fix, not fully tested:

!!!TURNING ON DX12 DISABLES SLI!!!
Rolling back drivers is not a FIX (i have tried 8 different ones my self)

System Specs
GPU: DUAL GTX 1080 SLI
OS: Windows 10 Pro
Driver: DRIVER: 375.86 (i have at least tried 5 different sets of drivers)
Sync: GYSNC monitor with it turned on
Please post at least the minimum information above when replying in this thread to make it easier for dev's.

I will update this main post for possible solutions that have been confirmed to be working for more than one user.

This is an update someone posted by no means does it Mean it will get resolved quicker. It took weeks for last patch. Keep reporting this issue to twitter, facebook,bug tracker and keeping this thread alive.

Responses from EA or DICE Workers
Patch will take a few weeks

User conversation with TRIGGR about not putting bad patch out

Latest Updates from tiggr


Forth Update from EA

Third Update From EA (SLI worked Alpha, Beta, last patch, and yesterday it broke... please explain)

Second Update From EA

First Update From EA


NVIDIA is tracking Issue
This shows that they are aware of it and know that it was caused by update but are willing to work with EA/DICE to fix.

There is also a Thread on NVIDIA talking about issue:

This is ballroom blitz after the patch. This is not as bad as it was in a full server!!!



Note to Dev's:
Any dev's that read this i more than volunteer my self, my computer and my time to be a test dummy for any upcoming hot fixes to address this new issue.

    It's happening to me as well. I believe it's an SLI issue that wasn't there before. 980s in SLI

    Are you running SLI or CrossFire? My friend had the same issue with flickering text in the game menu, he has GTX750 SLI, flickering disappeared after SLI disabled.

    Can confirm with my SLI 1080's flickering stops if you disable SLI, but that's not really an option for 3440x1440 res :\

    we have same monitor i bet, ACER x34. and yes 3440x1440 needs sli to get the 100fps.

    Check your RES scale because after update it set mine to %150.
