    ROG Swift PG278Q pulsing on start/distorted text on right side [FIXED]

    TL;DR change your resolution from the nVidia Control Panel to 1920x1080x144hz, then change it back to 2560x1440x144hz.

    I began to notice a faint pulse on the panel when I first booted up the computer. It looked similar to a heart-beat throb in your eye after rigorous exercise. Gradually over a period of minutes, it would fade away and the panel would behave normally. Then I started to notice that moving a window to the right side of the screen made the text appear blurry, like sharp text wasn't enabled, but the left side appeared sharp, as expected.

    I tried:
    1. upgrading the nVidia driver to the latest
    2. changing GPU ports
    3. changing the Display Port cable
    4. using a different computer
    5. resetting the display to default configuration
    6. setting the frequency from 144hz to 60hz.

    Finally, the issue was corrected when I changed the resolution from 2560x1440x144hz to 1920x1080x60hz, then back, as I stated in the beginning.
    I was able to shutdown and reboot the computer and toggle the panel off and on and the fix persisted. I will report back should the fix fail over time however I believe the issue was related to a stuck chip controlling a capacitor that drove the right side of the panel (complete speculation).
