Re: High Vram Clock always!!!

Jump to solution

I said why it's a feature because of the industry standard. Yes for more monitors and maybe a high frequency. https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-radeon-rx-5700/31.html. 

Not for one monitor and 60Hz !!! 

With the new drivers, I have a 35 W consumption with one monitor and 60 Hz and a temperature 8 higher

Drivers 20.11.1 no problem vram  60Hz ,120 Hz, 144Hz.             "  165 Hz = high values vram. "

Drivers 20.11.2 - 20.12.1 no problem vram  120 Hz ,144 Hz.        " 60 Hz , 165 Hz = high values vram. "

 

Pc Windows 10 20H2  R7 2700x  + RX 5700 +16G DDR4-3200CL16   monitors Dell S2721DGF , Dell U2412M , LG L204wt

@any 

ok - one Monitor shouldnt make this a problem

than please go to amd.com/report

PC: R7 2700X @4.1GHz + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS

Here's demonstration of problem.

Clocks are fine while complete idle, but skyrocket during mouse movement or anything that moves on screen. Ad shouldn't go as high as 2000.

New driver version didn't fixed that. Also I'm still wondering about missing features like p states. There is only slider for voltage and clock, but is RDNA2 still not fully optimized and they didn't included that on purpose ?

I have couple of amd gpus under my hand in work, I was able to check that - each of them have some kind p state editor curve or slider, (5700, 570, 580) inside adrenalin. Also, all of them have stable 300Mhz memory and core clocks, why 6000 series have scaling from 0 to max ? Those things coming up with time to me as I'm learning how those things work. Any informations or clues ? 

I found some websites

RX 5700 XT - 75 Hz/144 Hz/non-standard refresh rates causing VRAM clock to run at max | TechPowerUp ...

VRAM Clock Speed always Max causing temps of about 58 degrees when idle : AMDHelp (reddit.com)

Same here, with these new drivers its constantly maxed, which is an issue with a reference card here, my idle temp is 35c with older drivers. Runs at 200, new ones 50c, always maxed, only running one 60hz monitor, this is dumb, fix it AMD.

Only working driver version is 20.9.2 - with this version is working everything perfect. (display LG 34UM68-P, 2560x1080x75Hz, 8bit colours and idle  memory clock 200Mhz)

I tried several new versions, all of them stuck my idle clocks to 1748Mhz. (that means +15Wpower and higher temperature about 15-20 degrees celsius)

Only help is to make custom resolution and force CVT, but that makes colours 6bit, which is not acceptable.

PLEASE FIX IT

Please, dig further ! 

I have launched Edge browser in windows 7 compatibility mode and disabled full screen optimizations, and that caused VRAM clocks to completely go sleep > 900mhz at max during video playback (mostly 192MHZ)  ! Maybe there is permanent solution for this if we will investigate that? OFC in that mode, browser is very laggy and it's missing windows 10 features, but still, it's a huge leap

I have the same issue even after going back to 60 HZ. While watching youtube the card reaches almost 60 C and i bought rx 6800 TUF gaming, a card with a HUUGE cooler. How is this even possible? Makes me sad that i didnt bought a Nvidia card ffs.

Me too, with a new shining 75 Hz monitor, I have the issue. Catalyst 21.2.1.

Setting the refresh rate to 60 Hz - same resolution - solves the "problem".

 

Please AMD, make better choices handling resolutions and refresh rates.

 

If 60 Hz does the trick, 15 Hz more can't require 20 W more in idle.....

Dang monitor makers, they make bad hardware and forcing amd to use special - high - performance - mode, to avoid visual problems

... sarcasm...

if they would use STANDARDs there would be no problem

PC: R7 2700X @4.1GHz + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
