Display is not so pleasent as on Manjaro

Hi there, I have a strange issue I don’t know how to deal with - I have an impression that display refresh rate is not as it is really set.

xrandr says:

dzyndzla@LENOVO-T470S-E:~$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 16 x 16, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 32767 x 32767
DP-5 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 530mm x 300mm
   1920x1080     74.91*+

but display is tiring my eyes.

these are my i915.conf settings

dzyndzla@LENOVO-T470S-E:~$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/i915.conf 
options i915 enable_guc=3 enable_fbc=1 fastboot=1

and 20-intel.conf settings

dzyndzla@LENOVO-T470S-E:~$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf 
Section "Device"
  Identifier "Intel Graphics"
  Driver "intel"
  Option "TripleBuffer" "true"
  Option "TearFree" "true"

my graphics:

dzyndzla@LENOVO-T470S-E:~$ inxi -G
  Device-1: Intel HD Graphics 620 driver: i915 v: kernel
  Device-2: Chicony Integrated Camera driver: uvcvideo type: USB
  Display: wayland server: X.org v: with: Xwayland v: 23.1.2
    compositor: kwin_wayland driver: X: loaded: intel dri: i965 gpu: i915
    resolution: 1920x1080
  API: OpenGL v: 4.6 Mesa 23.1.2 renderer: Mesa Intel HD Graphics 620 (KBL

I had the same setup on Manjaro and display was way much pleasant to work with. Any tips how to improve it?

Thx, switching driver from intel to modesetting and changing DRI from i965 to iris does the trick.
