Burn-in in the pause menu after only a few mins

2 years ago

Hi! I am loving the game so far. But the other day I had some issues with the screen. 

My setup first:

- PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB Red Devil Video Card

- AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor

- Aorus FI27Q

My settings in the game are all maxed out, and the game itself looks amazing.

However I faced an issue on Sunday that scared the hell out of me. I was playing the game and had to leave the desk for a few mins, no more than five. I left it in pause. When I came back I had screen burn-in and the display was flickering a lot in the grey area of the pause menu. I attach some screens of the burn-in. 

Fortunately, it disappeared. Now I exit the game instead of pausing because every time I pause the flickering starts again, remaining even when i unpause.

This issue is not happening to me in any other game I play, I play every game with the maximum settings possible and i never go beyond 144Hz (even though I could until 165). Have you seen this issue before? Any tips on how to mitigate it? Thanks :)
