Screen tearing on multi monitor setup, only when orientation of monitors is different

Hello there,
I tried searching the forum and did not find my specific problem. I tried different things, but want to start fresh, maybe someone here has suggestions.

I recently connected a second display to my computer running manjaro with i3 windowmanager. The second monitor is vertical 4K display, the primary is a horizontal 4K display. When i set both in the same orientation, the screen tearing goes away. When i set them how they are standing on my desk, i have horrible screen tearing (top of screen seems to be in front of the lower part of the screen, with a horizontal tear in the middle) while images are moving on my screen.

I remember having a similar issue with only one monitor, until I enabled vsync option in picom configuration.

I’m happy about all suggestions, also if i should append some output of some command, please let me know.
