With my Geforce GTX 285:

04:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 285] (rev a1)

I experience a regression after updating to Linux 5.9 from Linux 5.8.14 where visual artifacts appear on the screen after a while, leading a lockup of my display, forcing me to reboot the PC. Downgrading to linux 5.8.14 fixes the issue again, so I strongly suspect a problem in the DRM part of the GPU drivers.

The journalctl contains the following errors:

I didn't manage to bisect yet, it sometimes takes a while for the problem to manifest itself (scale of hours) so it's a bit tedious testing versions. Maybe someone here experiences the same problem and/or has more success with bisection.

Upstream bug has been closed.

Do you still suffer of the issue on latest kernel versions?

No, this bug is fixed.
