Hardware acceleration broken – YouTube videos flickering, anti-aliasing broken – Desktop Support

NOTE: I’ve been actively using Brave Browser until a few months ago with no issues, but after some update, it suddenly broke and started showing issues described below. So I’ve immediately switched to Google Chrome.
Today I’ve revisited Brave to check whether the problem is solved, but unfortunately it is not – that’s why I’ve decided to report this issue.

Description of the issue:

  • YouTube videos flicker when hardware acceleration is enabled.

  • Everything looks a little bit ugly (not anti-aliased and blurry) when hardware acceleration is enabled.

  • When I visit brave://gpu, my GPU starts to coil whine. But it stops immediately when I switch to another tab.

How can this issue be reproduced? N/A

Expected result: Videos shouldn’t flicker and fonts should be smooth when hardware acceleration is enabled. Disabling hardware acceleration is not a solution as it significantly reduces performance.

Brave Version: 1.33.106

Additional Information:
OS: Windows 10 Pro 21H1
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070
GPU Driver Version: 497.29 (latest)
Display Resolution: 3440×1440

Also brave://gpu does not report any issues in Log Messages.

Thank you.
