It took them 6 months from release but they finally fixed it. Had to do my entire playthrough of the game on a single GPU because the flickering was nauseating. Timing here is good since that new DLC just came out for it

The issue might have been fixed by a game update as well, or needed one.

AMD has some posts on gpuopen that talks about CFX support and how engines need to give hints to prevent things like flicker in CFX / SLI.

Yeah I wouldn't doubt it. From my understanding the Division used a lot of stuff between frames which we know is hard to make work with AFR
