Driver Timeout sapphire 6900 xt toxic edition

Hello i keep having driver timeouts were my whole pc freezes while playing and forces me to shut it down, i already tried to play with max fan speed and i got a 1000w PSU but it still happens sometimes even multiple times a day.

Are you using two separate pcie cables to the 8 pin sockets on the card (not 1 into 2 split).

20230116_023546.jpgyes, i have 2 split cables going from my PSU to GPU, i also reinstalled my drivers, made sure its not overheating by putting the fan on 100%. It shouldn't crash because of high settings since im only playing rimworld which is 2d.


i think we have a potential problem here .. 3 connectors should be 3 cables to be sure ... not using splitted plug, with a 1000W psu you should be able to try with a third cable


ok, i now have 3 PSU cables going to my GPU 2x 8pin and 1x 6pin, ill post again if it crashes again.

It crashed again, i think i have to return this GPU and buy a new one, maybe i just buy a

new one, this time ill just get a Nvidia.


has your problem been solved after the replacement?
