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. "

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
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.....
if they would use STANDARDs there would be no problem
