My Feedback On My 5700 XT

*The AMD Support Community is a place where AMD users can help each other by sharing their valuable knowledge and experiences about AMD products.*

*My own topic was: Dont buy the Radeon 5700 or bring it back to the Reseller, because its BETA"*
*Topic was edited by a Mod*
*My Card WAS a Sapphire 5700 AMD Design. (non XT)*

When you come to this Forum, you know, there is something wrong with your card.
And to help you, i made this Topic. Dont try yourself, to find the Problem with different Drivers or Software.
You bought a Product and want, that it runs.

Things you have to live with, when you dont switch NOW:

Bluescreens, Blackscreens, Game Problems, not optimized, crash on startup, crash ingame,
Freesync problems, Hz problems, enhanced sync problems, horizontal line problems (not vsync lines)

over 10? Years ago, at the AMD hype, i had another AMD Card full of problems and after months of waiting, i switched.
So after a long Green phase, i thought its TIME, to switch to a good price/performance new card.
FAIL. AMD you will never change in your GPU Marked....
Congrats to the CPU Team, you guys are awesome. 

Nothing more to say. See you on the green Side again. Im out of the Game.

Re: RADEON 5700 IS BETA, DONT BUY IT (back to Reseller!)

Not surprised to see someone leave to green camp, I'm not leaving yet, but I'm sure also not happy with my RX5700.

Maybe you should purchase a Vega 64 or Vega 56 instead if you don't want to buy Nvidia or hold off until AMD Drivers for RX5700/XT are stable?

New MSI RX Vega 64 Air Boost cards are really low cost at the moment ~ 260. 
Alternatively Sapphire RX Vega 64 Nitro GPUs are selling for ~ 300 - 320 in some deals. 
A very good RX Vega 56 is the PowerColor Red Dragon for as low as 250.

The RX Vega 64 Liquid and PowerColor RX Vega 56 Red Dragon GPUs I own are finally working quite well on Adrenalin 19.8.2/19.9.1 drivers on Windows 10 Pro 64bit/Windows 8.1Pro 64bit and Windows 7 64bit Ultimate.
The Vega drivers were still very problematic in November 2018 when I purchased the RX Vega 64 Liquid.
It was so bad I was going to return the GPU.
Driver Stability has definitely improved on Vega cards since then for me, and issues I reported did get fixed.

It might take until ~ Thanksgiving 2019 or even end Jan/early February 2020 before majority of RX5700/XT & BIOS issues on AIB versions are resolved based on what happened with RX Vega 64 launch.

Also when "Adrenalin 2020" is released (the Annual Update - usually ~ November) the driver stability might drop until mid Feb 2020 based on what happened with Crimson ReLive, Adrenalin, Adrenalin 2019 for me.  

RX5700XT Prices might drop, there might be better AMD game deals, or perhaps some good Black Friday deals on AIB versions by November 2019.

The RX5700XT in AIB cooler like the PowerColor Red Dragon or the Gigabyte RX5700XT Gaming OC look like good GPUs if you don't mind > 2 slot form factor.
I am very interested in the PowerColor Red Dragon RX5700XT or the Asrock RX 5700 XT Challenger D 8G OC as they are both 2 slot form factor, provided I can get them at a reasonable price.

Re: RADEON 5700 IS BETA, DONT BUY IT (back to Reseller!)

The Cpu side is even more broken right now . just go through the posts  of zen 2 problems .  if you still have the card . i can give it a shot to change your mind and not to pay the green envious monster than jeopardized the gpu market ..   tho i bid you bye already . so yeah . incase you turn back . xD . anyway . 

1. i assume you have DDU already . if so . Nice . 

2. Install 19.9.1 --- for me better performance since the voltage is much more aggressive and clocks are much more stable than 19.7.5 .  opinions may vary

3. Disable Enhanced Sync . FREESYNC . ( if you have a 75hz monitor ) Im sorry for you .  RUn in 60hz  . 

4. Too much Black Screens ? If you are interested . You can post down your Current Clocks in Wattman . and your current voltage . I have enough experience to spot crap . i have  years long of modding exp of Radeon GPUS .. I suggest you downclock to Ref Clocks and undervolt aggresively

5. DRIVER_IRQL  ATIKMDAG and NOT_HANDELED Bluescreens ? Sure .  Disable HW accleration in CHROME / FIREFOX / STEAM / OVerwolf / anything that uses .

 

Would help you a lot   the gpu has enough to turn heads around man .

I completely agree with the author.
The video card has been on the market for 2 months, and there are a lot of problems.
I can not play Black Ops 4 - a constant decrease in GPU load and a decrease in game performance

Radeon NOT for gaming

Re: RADEON 5700 IS BETA, DONT BUY IT (back to Reseller!)

i suppose you are in 1080p ? .  i suggest you to disable SMT and tighten your timings .  to maybe CL14  or CL15 . try PBO  10x if your mobo has it .    or try using VSR .    . Cpu runs into issues i can see .  i use a i7 2600k at 4.6ghz . almost same level ipc as your cpu .  ish..  i face same issues .  ill upgrade soon

You actually downgraded  with 2 more cores actually .   Skylake with MCE - Multicore Enhancement can beat the shitout of ryzen .  i hope you know what  i am talking about
