When shall I test my RX6900 again? CTDs in MSFS 2020 since switch to AMD. Not with Nvidia.

Guys, I am about to give up on the XFX RX 6900 XT. I have been using the card since early March 2021. I have been experiencing between 10 and 20 CTDs per day since then. It's just frustrating.

I am happy to take any suggestions. The list of measures I have taken is so long that I can't post it here. I have even isolated my system and tried running Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on a brand new M.2 SSD with a brand new Windows 10 installation.

I am posting here because the bug report tool does not work since the insertion of my trusty Gigabyte Windforce RTX 2080 Ti.

What's funny is that I have not had these crashes since the acquisition of MSFS whilst running the RTX 2080 Ti. Neither did I have any issues with the MSI RTX 3090 Gaming X ´Trio which I subsequently sold. And I do not have any issues with the RTX 2080 Ti since switching back to it. So, how can I not blame it on AMD?

I am aware that there might be other reasons in the particular piece of software I am running but fact is: no crashes, stutters or any issues with Nvidia at any time. Constant helplessness and incurable vcruntime140.dll errors with the RX 6900 XT according to the Win10 Security and Maintenance report. Flight Simulator trying to write to unallocated memory according to Visual Studio debugging which is essentially the same event.

Who is, if anyone, ever going to solve this dilemma? Please let me know when it is worth my time to test the AMD card again if you don't want to buy it.

Cheers!

My system specs:
Rio Toro Enigma G2 850W
MSI MEG ACE Z390
64GB dual channel Kingston KHX3600C18D4/32GX
Crucial CT1000P1SSD8 (M.2 NVMe SSD) for system
a mix of SATA HDDs and SSDs for storage

GPUs tested on this system:
MSI RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio
Gigabyte RTX 2080 Ti Windforce (not the OC version but a whopping 120 MHz auto overclock on air cooling)
XFX RX 6900 XT

The issue is that Microsoft Flight Simulator crashes to desktop after between 1 and 240 minutes with the AMD card installed which does only happen when it is installed and the drivers are, too.
3 other individual other system used for comparison do not run into trouble when using an Nvidia card and drivers as described. Yet, they run into trouble when using this particular AMD card and the respective set of drivers.

I went from RTX 2070 Super (Never CTD) to Rx 6800xt and now I cant fly MSFS in VR constantly CTD Something is not right,  I think its the AMD drivers

Joining the bandwagon. I'm having massive issues with this card (6900XT/drivers), not seen in NVIDIA. I'm in the refund window so I'm sending it back!

Thought it may have been my system until I read this post. My issue are identical. Thought the latest drivers may sort things out.

I upgraded from a 1080TI which was rock solid/reliable. 

System:

MSI 580MB

WIN10 PRO

32G RAM

SSD HD

REVERB G2

Write me in, I have the 6800xt, not having cdts, but a lot of frame drops, stuttering, and low fluctuating utilization percentages.

Hello.

I am as well experiencing tons of CTDs with my new pc build I made some months ago with the RX6900XT onboard.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is crashing tooo much frequently! Is for sure  not the best stable SW yet, but most of the crashes I really guess they fall on the GPU right now!

I always had the same error shown here in this topic! This is definitely frustrting after having bought this new build.....I have much more issue respect my old computer!!!

When AMD think to develop some bug fixing for MSFS players like us? Are a bunch of months things with their drivers/cards are going tooooo bad!

My current build is:
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3.8 (4.7 Boost)
Asus TUF Gaming B550-Plus
Corsair H150i Cooler
Corsair Vengeance 64GB DDR4 RAM @3600MHz
Asus TUF Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB @2K
Samsung SSD 970 EvoPlus 1TB + 2x SSD Crucial MX500 1TB + WD 4TB HDD
Corsair HX1000 PSU

I have a correction on the MB. It's a MSI Z590 pro wifi.

You should check

- energy management settings. Make sure it is in ultimate performance.
-pagefile size
-rolling cache(min 16GB)
