Journeyman III

RX 5700 XT - checkered artifacts


So I just built my new desktop a few days ago and I noticed some weird groups of pixels appearing in-game  such as PUBG and Valorant when I started playing, however, these pixels don't appear on other games such as DotA 2, Rust , and Warframe-- having most of their graphical settings set to highest. 

There are some unwanted pixels on  the hair of the character. (This is in the lobby of PUBG)

In this scene, the artifacts only appear on the illuminated area in Forza Horizon 4.

This is in Valorant

*If you notice, these artifacts only appear on some areas. 

Speaking about tuning there was neither overclocking nor underclocking applied to this gpu, I just changed the fan curve to keep the fans spinning all the time. Enhanced Sync is disabled.

I tried using Radeon Software versions 19.12.1, 20.4.2, and 20.5.1 hoping it might get rid of those pixels but still no luck. (Did DDU before installing each version to ensure a clean installation of driver.)

I want to know if there might be some issues on the card physically, or just some driver issues. Is there someone out there also experiencing this right now?

I wonder if we are having a bad VRAM.  
Check this webpage out. 



I rechecked other games and problem (partialy) only with doom. Rechecked in Msi Kombuster (all test)- no artifact.
