major artifacting in games with my 6900xt. should i RMA?

i've been trying to troubleshoot why cyberpunk would crash every 10-15 minutes. i thouhgt it was maybe cause i was playing in windowed borderless. used GOG to verify and repair game files. uninstalled and reinstalled the game, the launcher. same for GPU. uninstalled and reinstalled everything with DDU and then tried again with amd tool.

then i decided to move on and try another game. i tried RDR2.. and the artifacting is worse. giant black flashing artifacts on a new game. in the sky, in the snow etc..

should i RMA or is there really anything i could do?

Re: major artifacting in games with my 6900xt. should i RMA?

What driver version are you using?

Have you tried a Factory Reset before updating to 21.9.2 drivers?

Is your Windows OS clean, when did you last reinstall/update the OS?

What Display cable are you using? Have you tried a different cable?

Have you tried a selective start-up to ensure no background applications could be causing the issue?

To reboot in a selective startup:

  • Press WINDOWS-R on the keyboard to bring up the Run window, enter MSCONFIG and click OK.
  • Under the General tab, click "Normal startup" if it is not selected already.
  • Under the Services tab, put a check on "Hide All Microsoft Services" and then click "Disable All."
  • Under the Startup tab, these will still be disabled in Windows 10 in the Task Manager.
  • Click OK on the MSCONFIG window, and then click Restart when prompted.

If you have tried all of the above, it could be faulty. It certainly looks like it could be faulty to me.

Re: major artifacting in games with my 6900xt. should i RMA?

just came back from work. i'll answer what i can now, and do everything else after i take a shower.
BTW, ticket for RMA is 8201136984 @Matt_AMD 

What driver version are you using? latest drivers, since i got my gpu the 21st of september.

Have you tried a Factory Reset before updating to 21.9.2 drivers? Not applicable

Is your Windows OS clean, when did you last reinstall/update the OS? yes it's a brand new build as stated. only part that wasnt part of the build was the "placeholder" a GTX 770 that i took from my old PC. even tho it wasnt that powerful, i was able to play all my games just "fine" (everything on mostly low/med for graphics, with maybe 60 fps is lucky). i used DDU and later while troubleshooting Cyberpunk i used the AMD tool that is shared on the cyberpunk troubleshooting page.

What Display cable are you using? Have you tried a different cable? using a display port for the Samsung monitor and HDMI for the secondary Dell monitor. i did not use any other cables, i didnt see the point tbh, since the setup was perfect on my old PC.

Have you tried a selective start-up to ensure no background applications could be causing the issue? No, will do this right after my shower in a few minutes.

here's some videos that i took real quick a few minutes ago:

@Matt_AMD 

RMA ticket number: 8201136984 


What driver version are you using? lastest driver, got my GPU the 21st of september

Have you tried a Factory Reset before updating to 21.9.2 drivers? i always do fresh installs or clean installs from the drivers' option. but i don't think this applies, since i had the latest drivers.

Is your Windows OS clean, when did you last reinstall/update the OS? fresh install, like i said it's a new build. windows i always up to date. only "old" part i had was a placeholder gtx 770 while waiting for the 6900xt

What Display cable are you using? Have you tried a different cable? Display port for the Samsung (main screen), HDMI for the Dell (secondary screen). i have not tried another cable. since everything was fine on the old PC and also the new PC (with gtx 770)

Have you tried a selective start-up to ensure no background applications could be causing the issue? yes, same thing.

videos i took after work, sorry for the quality. but artifacts are present.. also witcher 3 is just CTD all the time.

Can you test the GPU on a different system altogether to confirm the fault?
