    Overdrive "artifacts" - inverse ghosting

    Let me remind, that due to an incorrectly configured overdrive function, an appears effects called "inverse ghosting" or "overshoot":

    To summarize, if the overdrive function does not work correctly, then on regular monitors it can be disabled from the monitor menu.
    In laptops, this feature is usually disabled from proprietary software: such ASUS Armoury crate, MSI center, Lenovo vantage, etc.



    In our case, to disable overdrive, you must additionally install the notorious RefreshRateService, which in some cases does not work for some reason.
