Recently built a new PC for the Radeon RX 5700 XT, however, since I've had it it's been nothing but trouble so far. Occasionally the screen will start flickering out like crazy when I'm on specific pages online or even specific parts of youtube videos. That paired with the BSOD with the new update 19.8.1, I'm honestly a bit fed up. If there are any solutions or ideas as to what's the issue here it would be greatly appreciated.
Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk
CPU: Ryzen 7 2700x
GPU: Radeon RX 5700 XT
RAM: 3200mhz DDR4
OS: Windows 10
- All my drivers are up to date.
- Video shows what the issue.
Same here with Sapphire 5700 XT, in Apex random black flickering (cable swap from DP to HDMI) didnt help, we have to wait until new driver is released.
You can try to disable enhanced sync (Global), set it to always off and disable freesync (Display), this might help a bit, but i am not getting BSODs in windows, maybe cause i have an Intel CPU, friend of mine, he has Ryzen, said that reverting back to 19.7.5 helped him to get rid of the BSODs.
Also what you can check in Wattman (if you have a 144hz screen) if the memory is throttling or is still running at full 875mhz, this will kick the memory pretty hard and the memory temperature can go over 100 degrees (mine was in Apex at 96 degrees, just in menu), solution is to set the monitor to 120hz and re-check wattman, if it goes down from 875 to 100 you are good to go. I had this issue on my 240hz monitor.
Did you also disable enhanced sync in the global options (always off)? Mine is throttling in windows normally at 120 hz down to 100, try to play around with the settings, disable completely enhanced sync and freesync and re-check again.
I dowgraded my druver to the previous ersion and disabled the in game overlay of origin. Im no loger getting the random black screen flicker.
Hi, I'm having the same issue, mine also flickers on/of and weird artifacts.
B450 Bazooka V2
XFX 5700 - Driver 19.10 (also occurred in earlier versions)
Usually happens when I finish playing a game and there is a switch in resolution. Also happens when restarting PC and the initial startup there is a change in resolution. Seems like it just becomes unstable when this happens and it flickers randomly on/off. It may stop for a while and then it continues.
This is only a temporary solution that worked for me. When it starts flickering, open the AMD Radeon Settings>Display> Turn on or turn off either Virtual Resolution or GPU scaling. Once you toggle it the flickering will immediately stop.
Hope this helps. Not a permanent solution, but it does stop the flickering.
