rx5600 xt underperforming like a 1050

Hello i just got a radeon rx 5600 xt and its underperforming really hard. my other pc parts are : 16 gigs ddr4 3000 mhz ram Mobo : gigabyte GA-ab350-gaming 3 and a ryzen 3 1200, i know its a bottleneck but my old graphics card even does better r9 290x. I watched a youtube video where someone with a rx 5600x and a ryzen 1200 (same as mine) got 120 fps on warzone (same settings) and i got around 40. and games like league of legends i get around 70 fps on medium settings. Yes i have the latest drivers, also i got my rx 5600xt today so its brandnew. Can anyone help?

I have the same problems, I've upgraded from a gtx1060 g1 6gb, and I'm not happy at all with the performance upgrade.. It definitely doesn't perform like I've seen on YouTube with the same setup( ryzen 2600, rx5600xt). I tried everything but in fortnite I hardly get 120 at low, whereas on YouTube I've seen 200plus.. I don't know what to do


the same with the rx5600xt about 3 days ago it started to go very bad now I have fps jerks and from time to time the screen freezes

0. disable Win10 auto-driver-install
1. download LATEST DDU
2. run DDU in safe-mode
3. clean AMD driver with DDU
now VERY IMPORTANT if you had a Nvidia-GPU before
3b. clean Nvidia driver with DDU
3c. if you want to go REALLY SAFE - after buying a green GPU simply reinstall your windows... - they do lots of stuff with Windows and that can interfere with AMD driver
4. after cleaning reboot into windows
5. install latest AMD driver
6. reboot and test

also: check if your RAM is running at XMP and is dualchannel
