What's the issue?

Also run this in terminal and paste here the output, so we know what hardware you have inxi -SMGxxxz.

Hi, it seems like tearing. inxi output will be useful.

Hi, Please check below output.

Output is truncated, add another one of inxi -Gxxx.

Next time edit the question, because comments have quite low limit for allowed characters.

Create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf with this inside:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
    Driver      "modesetting"
    BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"
    Option      "AccelMethod"    "glamor"
    Option      "DRI"            "3"

It should prevent tearing from happening after a reboot.
