Asus Armoury Crate GPU Extreme Power Saving Mode

Hello guys, I need your help. I had this issue when I updated my AMD Adrenalin yesterday. I saw the gpu stats on my Armoury Crate that it's on extreme power saving mode. AC doesn't recognize my gpu. However, the gpu is still visible on device manager, dxdiag and AMD Adrenalin. SAM is still working fine, But I'm afraid that the fans might not work optimally while gaming because it's on extreme power saving mode. How can I fix this? please help. 


Things I tried doing but didn't work:

1. Disabling and Enabling GPU on Device Manager.

2. Uninstalled Adrenalin via DDU and reinstalling to previous driver version. (Roll back)

3. Uninstalled and Reinstalled Asus Armoury Crate

4. Switching GPU modes from Armoury Crate

Uninstall Armory Crate

Make sure your motherboards' BIOS is up to date (or laptop IF that is what you are running)

Make sure you have the latest chipset drivers installed for your platform from either AMD or Intel websites


IF this is a prebuild or laptop (or just some setup that is new to you) .. always best to do a clean install of whatever OS and wipe all drives on your boot drive during the process and then install just those programs you are actually going to use and stay away from driver updaters .. Armory Crate and similar "stuff'

hi did you figure out a solution, i have the exact same problem


Ah! Armoury Crate, my old friend.

That happened to me.



There are two ways:

Try the short one first. Power Cycle the whole system.


Switch off the PSU button for a good 5 minute and take out the GPU, re-seat and update the GPU assets on Armoury Crate.

The other:

Use Armoury Crate uninstaller that completely removes all the trash. You can DDU the display driver but I didn't had to, i just updated it through Adrenalin. Power Cycle as written above and update display driver plus install Armoury Crate complete package, select your devices as you go.

That was what I did, hope it works for you. Sometimes Armoury Crate goes crazy and do this for a lot of devices, not just the GPU. However and to be fair, Haven't had an issue with Armoury Crate for sometime now....
