    I think I will be going back to v1.2.0 bios as well. This flicker is killing me slowly! Can't deal with it any more. I thought it was fixed under v1.2.18 with the 4531 drivers but not so.

    Is this an issue with the 9560 as well?

    No but they seem to have stuck with the crude removal of no adjustment below 20%

    I have a 9560 and I can confirm that my screen randomly flickers (either screen blacks out, or vertical black bars across my screen) every few hrs for less than a second (at any brightness, and either plugged in or on battery power). Not a big deal, but thought they would have resolved this issue by now.

    Same here. Only lasts a fraction of a second. Can't reproduce even twisting the laptop or hitting close to the dislpay cables. Seems to be sw related to me.

    The only bios that works 100% of the time with no screen flicker is v1.2.0. I'm on 9550 4k model.

    Just spotted this thread after posting in the 9560 thread. I too have this issue with my 4k 9560.
