Just upgraded from my old R9 fury and bought a completely new 6700xt nitro+ from sapphire, it's been running most of the newest games without a hitch. For example RDR2, Horizon zero dawn, Ghostrunner run perfectly smooth. The problem is youtube, while 4k60 video ran completely fine on my old Fury, it has extreme stutters on the new 6700xt and 8k60 drops basically 100% of all frames. Also fortnite has extreme stutters and Assassins creed 4 black flag doesn't load at all and results in a driver timeout. It's not a huge issue as 1440p60 is enough for youtube, just wondering if this is a common issue or i should RMA my card?
Full system specs:
Gigabyte B450i aorus wifi
16gb corsair vengeance 3200mhz
Seasonic Focus Gold 850w
Adata SXP8200 1tb NVMe
Also fresh installed windows twice, tried DDU on drivers aswell, tried blocking windows from installing the generic drivers aswell as tried installing chipset before graphics drivers, none of these solve the issues.
I have an RX 6700 XT and use driver 22.3.1 and have zero problems..
The reason I haven't upgraded yet.. Not sure if the new ones would crash games too..
If you have any software to change settings on the GPU it could be that causing stutters..
I had Asus GPU Tweak and when removed stutters stopped.. I had A sapphire RX580 and Trixx played havoc until removed..
This is from the driver notes if you have newer ones:
I have trixx installed aswell, not sure if that would cause these issues tho, it's only functionality is basically changing the led color and trixx boost, which I don't use anyways. It is interesting tho, tried 4k60 playback with the generic windows driver and it was perfectly smooth. Maybe I'll try downgrading to 22.3.1.
As I said, my 6700 has no problems with 22.3.1
Maybe hardware acceleration is disabled in the browser? And about the games, try to find the file with the settings of the game where it is stored, I do not know each game has it in different places, and delete it so that when the game starts, it scans your PC hardware and then adjust the graphics.
Try again: open google and in the search bar: change in chrome://flags/#use-angle from default to D3D11 or OpenGL. They also say that it can help to roll back the bios to the previous version (on b450 motherboards it helped, (but before rolling back the bios to the previous version, look at what it would support your processor) or to a more recent version of the bios. Also check that all the connectors are fully inserted I mean into the motherboard, the video card also has an hdmi or displayport cable (there are most problems with it), you can even try to connect hdmi and check if the problem remains)
