AMD RX 590 8GB fails standard Blender "Victor" Benchmark.
Blender versions 2.83 and 2.82 fail on the RX590.



RX5700XT 8GB.
RX Vega 64 Liquid 8GB (HBCC off as turning it on is not supported and crashes Blender).
RX Vega 56 8GB work.

All pass and complete the benchmark.

AMD Driver version 20.5.1.


They are all 8GB cards.
All tested on the same PC.


Specs here:

CPU    Ryzen 2700X
Memory    64GB (4x16GB) Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3200 DDR4.
Graphics Card:  One of AMD RX5700XT 8GB, RX Vega 64 Liquid 8GB, RX Vega 56 8GB, RX 590 8GB

SSHD Seagate FireCuda 2TB.
OS = Windows 10 64bit Pro 19.09.


Come on AMD.
I bought the RX 590 8GB GPUs for Compute.
They are all being sold off now for ~ 180 and this is the main use case now, as there are better options for gaming.
They should be working as Blender Compute Units.
Passing the "Victor" benchmark in Blender test case is a good indication the GPUs would be o.k. for other Blender testcases.


The RX 590 is just a GF 12nm respin of the RX 580 which is a respin of RX 480, both on 14nm.
So although this is failing on RX590, a GPU which had a short life, it is very likely failing on other AMD highest market share Polaris GPUs.
