Re: 5700 Navi Clock frequency down clocking & fluctuating causing stuttering and poor performance

Jump to solution

GPU: XFX 5700 XT Thic III Ultra 8GB

OS: Windows 10 64bit latest updates

Drivers: Adrenalin 20.4.1 Optional

Display: Benq EW3270ZL 2560x1440 @ 60hz DP connection without adapters

Motherboard: Asus Maximus Gene VIII  Bios Version 3504

CPU: i7 6700K @ stock frequencies

PSU: Corsair RX 750

RAM: 32GB @ 3000mhz

Game affected: Guild Wars 2

I am experiencing heavy stutter and random freezes of up to 5 seconds. I tried to pin frequencies to avoid the issue, removing V-sync to push more usage onto the GPU, and everything else described around + more. Whether it's running in exclusive full-screen mode or windowed (borderless and not), the issue is game breaking in non casual gameplay.

The only thing that "fixed" it for me was using a DX9 to DX12 wrapper. If it's induced by frequencies fluctuations it must be affecting the Directx 9/10/11 parts of the driver only, because frequencies can fluctuate as they please and deliver super smooth frame rates without stuttering or freezes DX 12.

I also have the same problem, my friend who has RX 580 gets equal or More FPS in CS:GO, Valorant, Warzone and League of Legends. I don't have any other benchmarks because I only have these games as of now.

My system:

  • AMD Graphics Card
    • AMD RX5600 XT
  • Operating System
    • Windows 10 Pro 64bit
  • Driver version installed
    • Radeon Software Adrenaline 2020 20.4.2
  • Display Devices
    • AOC 24G2U with DP
  • Motherboard + Bios Revision
    • MSI Mortar Max - American Megatrends Inc. 2.60, 12/30/2019
  • CPU/APU

I faced the same problem. Micro stuttering appears in the following games: ETS2, SnowRunner, SWToR

My setup:

Ryzen 3900

64 Gb RAM

Asus Prime X570 Pro

Asus 5700 XT

Gigabyte Aorus Gen 4 500 Gb M.2

2560x1440 60MHz

I coped with it by downgrading the drivers to 19.9.2; every time a new version comes I accept the updates, see the same troubles and get back to the version 19.9.2.
It would be good if this issue was solved, as it's not great to use a card with the drivers half a year old

How are your junction temps, guys? Mine reaches 110C every time card draws more then 200W of power. Also I see card drops power draw, hence clocks, each time junction goes over 110C. 

My card has a decent cooler though - MSI Gaming X version. Dunno if it could be an issue or not.

The fix to lock GPU down-clocking is quite simple. I posted a guide on here but it's been pushed out by other posts.

You just need your voltage to be the same for the 3 power states in Wattman. The frequency set for each power state needs to be within 50 Mhz of each other, but not lower than a value of 10 Mhz (and not the same frequency as this will cause a driver lock or crash and revert). This will lock your GPU clock. Your GPU will no-longer down-clock, regardless of utilisation.

Don't touch memory overclocking or the power tuning section - this will produce stutters and your memory frequency will fluctuate.. Edit your fan curve to ensure adequate cooling and you're good to go.

Here's an example of my settings.  Choose a frequency and voltage that works for you ( and one that's stable etc )

when you refer to wattman are you talking about the tuning section on the adrenalin software?

Yes that's correct. Example you can see in the attached pic on my post.

seanmack‌: Somehow it cannot be lower than 50Mhz for each state, because if i do it, the GPU-Z won't show correct speed.

Sapphire nitro+ same behaviour downclocking under load from 2000Mhz to about 1200Mhz  . Memory clock stays the same 1750Mhz  but Voltage, GPU usage , GPU clock and Power going down. Any fix for this as i spent last couple of days troubleshooting instead of enjoying my new rig ?
