Pubg and rainbow six siege crashing (rx480)

When im trying to play pubg the game suddenly crashes in randomly (especially when im scoping with a X times scope) and an error pops out from the drivers and says that driver has crashed.

Firstly i thought it was pubg's problem and i tried contacting them...i did everything they said me to do and nothing worked...i even tried reinstalling windows and drivers.After that i just stopped playing pubg and now im playing rainbow six siege...but it stills crashing randomly even on rainbow six siege.Moreover i have tried safe boot but when i tried this there was no internet connection so i could play.I've also tried changing some launch options that did nothing.Sometimes an error appears only for rainbow six saying application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware

There is no other game that this has happened (except one time on sea of thieves but it was their fault).

Go to Radeon Settings / Gaming / Global / Wattman & find the power limit slider down below the fan settings. Slide it all the way to the right to its maximum. Save that. Give your game a try. Good Luck!

Is it the power limit below temperature?


so i did this and pubg is still crashing when i scope only now...


I have not seen this issue reported before. You can submit a bug report to AMD from your Radeon Settings. I would also check out any forums for that game. I know it has many issues regardless of whose driver, this may be among them. Worth posting there too, someone might know a fix?

oh and i just saw that wattman settings have been restored to default due to an unexpected system failure as it says


yes they default with crashes that cause system restart.

btw i have sent an email like 2 weeks ago to amd and no reply yet..i have tried any kind of contact and i cant really get any help


Unfortunately it is the only way I know to contact them that they might respond. I'd say the have responded to me historically about 1/3rd of the time, but lately like 1/10th of the time. I am sorry, I wish I could do more.

Also after the latest drivers update i started getting some stuttering in is getting worse
