AMD RX 590 8GB fails standard Blender "Victor" Benchmark. RX5700XT, RX Vega 64 Liquid, RX Vega 56 work. AMD Driver version 20.5.1.

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

However

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
Motherboard    ROG CROSSHAIR VII HERO WIFI
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. 

Thanks.

Here is the stand alone test case completing on a PowerColor RX Vega 56 Red Dragon running on Blender 2.83:

The RX590's I own freeze on the first Tile.

The RX 590 cards are both Gigabyte RX 590. One is REV 1.0. the other is REV 2.0.
The REV 2.0 GPU is brand new.
The REV 1.0 GPU is < 1 year old.
They both perform equally in 3DMark and there are no problems in gaming on various AAA titles at 2K.
Both cards pass the following standard Blender benchmarks:

classroom
fishy_cat

koro

pavillion_barcelona

The most important benchmark, Victor, freezes on the first tile.

Please fix it.

Thank you.

You saved me installing https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-pro-win-20-q2 
to test it.

Your Radeon Pro WX71000 GPU is Polaris based so I think there must be a generic bug with the Polaris GPUs on Blender.
https://www.amd.com/en/products/professional-graphics/radeon-pro-wx-7100 

Since you own a Radeon Pro GPU you should get much better support than people running Commercial GPUs.

Could you file a bug with AMD and get support to get it fixed?

I will see what I can do on Blender Bug Report side and pointy you to a Blender Case Number.

Thank you.

RE: No problems with BMW27, Class Room, Barcelona Pavilion etc, it's "Victor" especific bug ... in my case.
Yes same here. I pass all other tests except "Victor" on the RX590.

But I think "Victor" is  the most important, largest, and most realitic test case in the Blender Automated Test Suite.  

RE:


IMO the key question is:

 

How many Radeon users (Pro or not Pro) noticed this bug running "Victor" Blender benchmark as GPU Compute Device under Windows?

 

It would be very useful if others shared their experiences here ....

Agree.

Thanks again.

Re: AMD RX 590 8GB fails standard Blender "Victor" Benchmark. RX5700XT, RX Vega 64 Liquid, RX Vega 56 work. AMD Driver version 20.5.1.

Thanks again - that is what I see as well.
I run "Victor" the benchmark loads data, builds the BVH, starts the GPU tiled render, then freezes progress after the initial tiles. The GPU activity on the Gigabyte RX590 REV 1.0 is reported as 100% initially then drops to nothing. Cannot exit Blender unless I use task manager to kill it. Fails on Blender 2.83 and 2.82. Not tried earlier versions. 

Victor is used in the Blender Test Suite to give ranking of AMD GPUs versus Nvidia.
You would think AMD would make sure it works on Polaris GPUs.
