Boot and BIOS screen show tearing, but not in Windows

When booting the machine with my MSI Radeon 6800 16G, I noticed some tearing in the top part of the screen. I am not sure if it is clear in the video. It only happens in the boot screen and inside the bios. In Windows there is none of that. I am using one of the displayports.

My specs are R5 3600, Mobo MSI B550 Gaming Edge Wifi (latest firmware), MSI Radeon 6800 16GB, 16GB RAM DDR4, 2 M.2 250GB and 1000GB.

I have done the following troubleshooting:

- Reset the BIOS.

- Used another displayport.

- Used the HDMI port and found that there is no tearing at all.

- Run Time Spy stress test 21 times and found no error (result was 99.4).

- Adrenalin is at default specs, without OC ON.

- Played different titles and didn't see such a behavior.

So, is this something I need to worry about? I exchanged this GPU two days ago and my previous one, a Sapphire Pulse 5700 XT did not show this behavior either.

Thank you.

I hardly can see the issue, except some dust on the monitor.

Overscan may be caused by a Monitor setting in how it upscales like fit to screen or Native, Center, stretch ect.
I tried changing this. My monitor, a LG 27UL650-W has three options, original, stretch and full wide. Changing these settings don’t solve the issue.

Could just be a scaling problem as it is all the way across the top of the screen I would not be concerned as you bios screen has to scale up on a monitor and with minimal driver support.

I normal have my 4K monitor set to native till I need the BIos screen then I have to go to a auto or stretch setting As it appears that the bios screen is only rendered at 800x600 and needs to be scaled up so it can be seen correctly. If I do not go to auto or a stretch mode the bios take up about 1/8th of the screen with the screen set to its lowest resolution of 1080

I agree. I have been playing and did not notice nothing. If it is restricted to BIOS or boot screen, it is totally fine...
