Strictly, no. However, when using other Display Environments, Wayland can sometimes make a difference, mainly due to much developer attention to it in recent times as opposed X11.
As mentioned above, Sway is the i3 version of Wayland, and there is conveniently a separate Sway distribution. Whether it will ultimately make much difference in your case, I can’t say.
Some users have claimed choosing a different cable (eg: DP to HDMI) has produced results in similar situations. Naturally, that’s wasted money if it fails to make a difference.
Changing your kernel could also produce positive results, as this Arch user found. If you haven’t updated recently, the latest iteration of kernel 6.6 might be worth trying; either that, or the latest 6.1.x LTS.
Thank you, I installed the 6.6.8-2 kernel. After rebooting and changing the resolution I still got a black screen, but now after another reboot it seems to work, I don’t think I changed anything else. Strange issue…
Also, I have to change the resolution manually after each boot, it doesn’t seem to save eventhough it’s set properly in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
