Screen Flickering at 120 Hz refresh rate | Fedora 40 | Asus Zenbook 14 UX3405

I would like to switch to Linux from Windows but after the installation I noticed that the screen is flickering and blinking randomly when refresh rate is set to 120 Hz. I don’t see such thing for 60 Hz.

My laptop:

Any tips?

Added f40 and removed intel

Also, are you on Fedora Workstation or one of the spins?

If you are on Gnome, Settings>Monitors>Refresh Rate :

We don’t get to see too many All Intel builds ( Intel CPU / ARC GPU) and I believe there is a package that needs to be installed and potentially OneAPI, maybe some more members can back this info up.
