Ever since upgrading to a 1440p 144hz monitor, Ubuntu has been displaying strange graphical distortions. This is one example:
This doesn't happen on Windows, therefore I think this is an OS-specific or software problem and not a hardware defect. It also didn't happen with my old 1080p monitor, and I haven't changed any settings since changing monitors (besides upping the refresh rate).
I'm not sure how to go about troubleshooting this, so any help is appreciated.
Note: I had to take a photo with my phone because screenshotting it didn't capture the distortions.
This also seems to happen spontaneously. Sometimes it works fine, other times the graphical distortions appear. I haven't been changing any settings, so I don't know why it randomly occurs some times and not others.
