Is this artifact caused by driver or a bug in chrome?

Symptom: When inputting in the Chrome address bar, there will be artifact randomly.
No artifact in firefox, opera, or elsewhere.

This happens in both ubuntu 20.04, and Manjaro KDE with kernel 5.8.
In ubuntu 20.04 the problem is constant, but in Manjaro KDE, it’s rare.


Yes it is screen tearing. Probably only the browser:


In Kernel 5.9 RC4, the tear is gone on chrome.

I have the exact same situation and it only seems to affect Chrome.

I am running on LTS kernel: Linux 5.4.64-1-MANJARO

I will upgrade and see if it solves the issue.
