Woah! iCUE makes Desktop flicker on GSync enabled FreeSync Monitors

I was able to reproduce this error with two different systems.

When using a FreeSync monitor with an NVidia GPU running in GSync compatibility mode, the desktop starts flickering when you open up iCUE. No other program or software causes this issue. Once you close iCue or refocus to another application, the flickering stops.

Gsync just doesn't react well to the type of UI iCUE uses. You can set Gsync in the Nvidia Control panel to only run when the program is fullscreen. That will make the issue go away while still allowing Gsync to function.

(Sorry for replying 6 months later) Can also confirm this. Even clicking on iCUE in system tray to bring up the little menu also causes this.

You don't want your screen running in GSync windowed mode or it will do this with any application that uses GPU resources. "Full Screen Only" is the best set up for most people, but if you actually play stuff in Windowed mode, you can use the Nvidia Control Panel to make specific settings for iCUE to turn it Gsync off when that window is in focus.
