Journeyman III

RX 6700 XT freezing randomly when going in/out of fullscreen games.

The card works as it shall except this issue. It performs well and is not bottlenecked. So the freezing happens maybe once or twice a day, I'm usually on my computer for 5-6 hours per day.  So i go out of fullscreen by alt-tabing and then when I go in to the game again, my whole computer freezes, to the point where i can hear everything but can't do anything and my mates won't hear me in discord. Whilst I can still hear them. I have never been able to recover from this except when I restart my computer via the hard reboot button or holding my power button for x seconds. 

The specs of my computer are the following: 

Intel i5-11600k
AMD RX 6700 XT
24 Gb ram 2133 MHz
Asus B560-F Gaming Wifi MOBO

Running Windows 10 64-bit

I have same issue with Asus Dual RX 6700 XT. Game randomly freezes for 5-10 secs, after that crashes or just came back... Sometime i need to do restart with button cuz PC not responding ... Im updating all drivers, checked few settings and applied, undervolted GPU but nothing helps ... I think we have just bad GPU...

I have Powercolor 6700XT Fighter, never have this problem. That mean i have good GPU?  )))

I think have reason for your problem, and before start to find problem, you must to know  alt-tab is reason or not. 

alt-tab is switch 3d mode off and on, power consumption is high than normal for short time, frequency is high too in this moment. First check your PCU, enough power for videocard or not in peak power. Check cable, you can use  HWinfo in sensor mode and log what happend in alt-tab moment, and check maximum power and frequency. You can use standart windows monitor health system for check what give this freeze, you need step by step move on your target. This is 90% is hardware problem, but i not be shore is only videocard problem, need check all system how it work.
