Re: Window 10 20H1(2004) + AMD 20.5.1 software + GPU latest bios completely fix black screen/blue screen/screen freeze issue.

I've been having very frequent black screen freezes. Windows 10 18363 + 2.4.1 + Gigabyte 5700 XT OC (Latest Bios). I will try upgrading to Windows 2004 and 2.5.1 AMD driver.

On existing setup I performed install of 2.4.1 using factory reset, use standard gaming profile (disables enhanced syc etc), disable freesync, disable AMD overlay, set AMD display profile to limit RGB, installed GPU with two PCI-E power cables.

*edit*

Black screen freezes still experienced on Windows 2004 and 2.5.1  Last tweak I am trying is disabling hardware acceleration in background applications running whilst playing games. I will be returning my card if this doesn't work. 

*edit 2*

Disabling hardware acceleration makes no difference. So disappointing! 

My full system spec:

MB - ASUS Maximus VII Ranger

CPU - Intel i5  4690K

RAM - 16GB DDR3 Corsair Ballistix

PSU - Corsair gold RM750

GPU - Gigabye 5700 XT OC (connected with two pci-e power cables)

I take it that the latest BIOS is installed

it can be very hard when disparate RAM is used, try using only the pair of 8GB sticks which I assume are the same

Re: Window 10 20H1(2004) + AMD 20.5.1 software + GPU latest bios completely fix black screen/blue screen/screen freeze issue.

I did it step by step (Notifications gone btw) but COD Warzone crashing are continuous. And it looks like 100% driver issue because I hear game sound while picture is freezing. And keep in mind - no overlocking here. Discord GPU rendering disabled.
One more thing - I started to play to test and opened Radeon watman? online statistic to watch GPU loading.
Strange case that amd driver doesn't really look to any restrictions on 1800 mhz while COD started. it can move loading between 1500 - 2000 hz by DEFAULT! And when maps loading before match started GPU makes some insane 2000 - 4000mhz peaks for few seconds. Then following normal gameplay with stable perfromance but on freeze it looks videcard silently drop performance to 20mhz.
Any external soft is disabled. I made fresh reinstall of licensed Windows 10 PRO. Before I had NVIDIA GeForce 980 - didn't have any issues for whole time.

I achieved some improvement in stability with AMD 20.2.1 but unfortunately still experiencing black screen freezes. Sorry AMD, on this occasion I am going to bow out and return my card because I can't see a solution on the horizon for my system configuration. Such a pity because when working gaming performance is excellent.

Finally, I found out a temporary solution to my situation.

DECREASE THE LIMIT POWER -25% to - 15% depends on each game.
You should create a profile for each game in the Radeon software tunning setting.
It solved my problem in-gaming, but not when sometimes I open a browser to watch youtube.

Re: Window 10 20H1(2004) + AMD 20.5.1 software + GPU latest bios completely fix black screen/blue screen/screen freeze issue.

Yes, latest BIOS
The problems came in waves with drivers versions...

Driver 20.4.2 in W10 1909 was perfect. (The setup won't finish in 2004)

Virtually all 19.X.X drivers are defective

This is not a RAM issue, it's 100% a driver issue.
