i'm facing a weird problem , don't know if it's a drivers related problem or windows problem:
first time I installed my 6800xt replacing my radeon VII, I didn't notice it but as I tried to play cyberpunk 2077 i faced a performance issue ... not getting more than 20/25 fps whatever setting or resolution i set in game ...
I could "solve" this by completely reinstall windows , as only reinstall driver didn't solve it (even with DDU and reset to manufaturer defaults etc) ...
but the fact is the problem reappear after some days:
i could play fluently cyberpunk with 60fps 4k ultra and variable fidelity cas (max 100 and min 80) for days , but one day adrenalin application wouldn't launch anymore, so I had to reinstall it and then the performance problem reappeared
again , not getting more than 20/25 fps in cyberpunk with low gpu usage etc
so I reinstalled windows on an external drive and the problem disappeared again ... but now i know it won't hold for long ...
the 6800xt has good fps in every game for now , so it wasn't really noticeable except in cyberpunk ... but in fact i think i loose 10/15fps in every game when the problem appears ...
moreover , in time spy extrem I normally get a score of 9160 when everything is ok , but then with the problem appearing I can't get above 8700 whatever i do ...
did someone notice that too ?
(fyi , this scores are on oc 2650 mhz + 2100 ram and 1030 uv , without oc they are proportionately weaker , so nothing about the oc... the card is watercooled not getting more than 70° on tjunction and everything perfectly stable , never experienced any crash )
if you have a vr headset connected to your pc then try to remove that ( hdmi and usb cables ). If you have more than one screen distonnect screen 2.
hi , no vr connected , but yeah 3 screen display for work ...i've already tried to disconnect the usb display not changing anything
and didn't try to disconnect the second dp screen because everything was ok with it for days ... but i will try and see if i get my fps back :)
I have finished cyberpunk and won't play it again, so for now i go with that degraded performance as i still have 60 fps in 4k ultra all other games and hope next drivers will correct all little bugs that i'm experiencing now (last windows 20h2 updates seemed to help for stability too , so some problem are not about amd driver)
EDIT : i just tested by disconnecting all screens except main screen, and then windows restart, and time spy extreme benchmark, but no improvement still getting less fps than expected
I have the same problem !!!! after few days fps drop to 50% also benchmarks , only reinstall windows or go back to early build bring back performance . but not for long . I have try every thing i know nothing helps but reinstalling windows
are you sure you don't have vsync activated ? 60fps on ultra seem no probleme , and if 60 fps on low , it means it's locked to 60 fps (vsync)
@smilelylifeday not every problem is related to amd , that's the easy thinking because easy to complain here and never search by ourselves , but lots of problems are about people not understanding what they are doing most of the time ... everybody wants to overclock , but in the same time not understanding readings in bios or drivers , thinking setting can be applyed the same from one computer to another etc etc .., so much rma of perfectly working hardware just because of ignorance... what a waste
and in this thread, i'm speaking about a probleme that could even easely be related to windows version , just trying to see if people have the same probleme , if you look at forums about it you will see that nvidia users have the same problem ...so ...
.... and because beside of this i have a 2004 windows on a second hard drive , and I get 7 to 10% fps more , i just made a timespy extreme to compare, i think i will have to reinstall windows from 20H2 to 2004
ok after lot of tests install/uninstall I think the cause of the problem is in windows update KB4598242
when uninstalling this one I get the fps back
got to confirm that by one or two tests , but I think it's it
