Hi, I'm running the linux version and with Ivy Bridge Intel (Ubuntu 12.04) and the following screenshot shows the issue I have (It's also present full screen with all 3 graphic quality settings).

Doesn't appear with nvidia (using primus).

Gladly do more testing, diagnostics, provide more info etc.

Also with nvidia, most of the screen is working fine as normal, but a border from top left, across to top right and to the bottom again flickers badly.

Alt tabbing out and back in sorts it luckily. Cant seem to grab a screenshot, will provide a vid if wanted.

If I understand correctly you are using an intel card right? If so, what drivers are you using with your card?
