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

Great. I hope she has a PSU that meets the minimum requirements for the 6900 XT of 850W.

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

We have same builds when it comes to specs. She has a 1000w PSU from EVGA. CPU and GPU are 1 tier lower. But they are the same mostly.

 

There is no danger that my GPU breaks something btw? I'd feel so bad if something happened to her PC

I wouldn't have thought so. It will either show the same issue or work fine. If it shows the same issue, you can proceed with a RMA.

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

the RMA process is ongoing. ticket number 8201136984

i only get 1 email per day with generic troubleshooting steps that i've already tried tho. so not sure how long it'll take before they get to more "serious?" troubleshooting.

my gf is done with work around 5pm. so i'll be testing the GPU as soon as possible. i might have to DL some AAA title to test it tho, i don't think she has downloaded any games yet, it's a new build for her too.

will update as soon as i have more news

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

hey, im back from the shop, gf's pc will be available for testing. do i just replace the 6800xt with the 6900xt? do i need to install the drivers for the 6900xt? or radeon software will take care of everything? is it the same "generic" driver?

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

Weekend didn't go as planned. My problem is still not resolved. Haven't got any news from the person in charge of my RMA claim. Would be nice to have some news from them.

 

Took the time to roll back to 21.2.3 some people reported the driver was more stable for them. I wasn't lucky. I also tested Anno 1800, artifacts for 10-15 seconds and CTD

 

Hope you had a great weekend.

Tried the 6900xt in my gf PC. Witcher 3 is installed so I tried that. The game launches. But I get a CTD as soon as I finish loading a game file.. so same thing as i get on my PC.

 

Btw, not quite sure why, but her water-cooler has major coil whine. Sorry for that
