Same problem here. I just got a 5700 XT Nitro+ and its gpu usage is between 30 and 70% on every game. Already tried a lot different drivers and fixes, nothing works. The steps suggested by gaav improve the problem on ultra settings in some games, but still stutters. I prefer to play on higher fps and lower settings so it's not a solution for me.
Setup: 2600, G skill 3000mhz 16gb, ASrock AB350 K4, Sapphire 5700 XT
This is really unacceptable, please provide a fix asap, I really don't want to return this card.
Nothing changed with driver version 20.3.1. Come on. Do you really want me to never buy AMD stuff again?
Installed 20.3.1 drivers and the issue is still there. Come on amd, are you working on it?
try pushing fans to 100% to see if any difference
on my VII drivers downclock when i try to oc and when the fans are at default
pushing fans to 100% doesn't work. Also tried another 60hz HDMI monitor and gpu usage is still low.
Another driver, another disappointment.
I catched myself looking for Nvidia cards the last few weeks. It's really sad. But when I see the problem already exists back to the release of 5700XT, what else can I do.
One more driver, than I'm done.
Hey just realized i also had this problem with my MSI RX 5600 XT MECH OC. The problem is on all fixed 60fps games for example MK11, DOA6, NUNS4. I got a lot of fps drop in that game when playing 1440p~ resolution.
It also happened with GTA V though when playing at 1800p sometimes it will hit max core clock and i get 70~ fps but sometimes it go down at about 500~mhz and all i got is about 40fps. So my card is not broken after all, it's the driver. Glad i'm not RMAing it at this moment.
