Brief display flicker during light or heavy GPU loads

Wondering if anyone has an experience similar to mine and what they may have done to correct it.

I have a 2014 15” MacBook Pro, 2.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, Integrated Iris Pro 1536 Graphics (NO DEDICATED GRAPHICS). I’m currently running Mojave.

I have noticed for a while that entirely independent of load, I will get an occasional screen flicker where my entire display goes black for maybe 1/100th of a second. I’ve noticed it primarily when working in Photoshop (where it will occur maybe once every 2-3 minutes or so if working on a file over 3-5 MB), but also while casually browsing an eBay page, with maybe one or two tabs open in Safari (screen flicker in this scenario happens maybe once every 7-10 minutes). I have tried numerous NVRAM resets and SMC resets, to no avail.

The temp of the MBP does not seem to matter either, as I have noticed the flicker occur at all ranges of temperature, from 38 degrees Celsius up to 85 degrees Celsius (CPU temp).

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Do you see this issue when using an external monitor? Thats important to test here.
