Just purchased a Sapphire Vega 56 Nitro+ LE to replace my 1070. Since installing this, anytime i try to use any program (seems to be mostly benchmarks or intensive 3D games like Unigine Valley, Superposition and Crysis 2 (Modded Minecraft seems to be ok)), after a short period, my screen goes black, fans ramp to 100%, but system still functions (game sounds / youtube can still be heard).
There seems to be some correlation between usage and the crashes (not sure if it is a crash, as the computer is still usable, just no screen). When playing modded minecraft, even in full screen at 1080 with VSync off (~120fps), it doesn't crash, but playing Crysis 2 at the same resolution or running a benchmark such as Unigine, causes an almost immediate crash. Using the desktop has not yet resulted in a crash.
My System is as follows
CPU: Ryzen 1700
MoBo: Asus ROG B350-I
RAM: 16Gb Corsair Dominator 3000MHz
GPU: Vega 56 (Sapphire Nitro+ LE)
PSU: Corsair Hx750i
Driver: Adrenalin 19.4.1
Windows: Windows 10(E) 1803 (17134.765)Additional Information
Using Afterburner to monitor the system, temps stay below 60c, fans spin as normal, and both GPU and Mem clocks stay above desktop levels. Following other recommended actions, I have set the minimum RAM MHz to State 1 (700MHz), but despite saving the profile, when returning to Wattman after recovering, the Ram clocks have returned to default.
Also, no crashes have so far happened on the desktop, and I am using three separate 8 pin to 6+2 pin cables to connect to the PSU and they are separated across the PSU.
I've read that rolling back drivers to an earlier version may help, so will be trying that when i get home, but does anyone have any other ideas?
Any help is hugely appreciated.
hi , i was having the same problem , i could not figure it out but read some stuff so i did a fresh windows install i did not install the ryzen chipset drivers and one thing i read was to lower the gpu memory to 700mhz and lowered to vol to 900mv and set the power limit to - 15 and for 8 days now i have not had any crashes fingers crossed , hope it helps
i tried every thing but at the moment i done a fresh windows install and i have not installed any chipset drivers and i lowered my memory speed to 700mhz and the voltage to 900mv with amd drivers 20.4.2 and for 10 days no crashes
Nice, but you are wasting performance, instead of lowering to 700mhz the memo, use memory timings 1 or 2, and lock minimum voltage to 1070mv and a supported clock, id say 1500 mhz for the core as minimum but ONLY for certain applications, like the games you have trouble with.
tag75 and amdog hey, im french and i have the same problem, i have amd drivers 20.4.2. it can come from thermal paste also ? i wantes to know if it worked for you amdog ? i try every solution.. im lost very very lost
as soon as i start warzone 10 minute later, its cut. my gpu is not even 65°. alim 650watt deepcool
and i have rx vega 56 gigabyte oc
ryzen 5 2600 3.85ghz
corsair vengeance rgb pro 3200
can it come from the x.m.p prfile ?
give me a good answer mannn please? i really count on you boy's good evening to you
No its not temperature problem. I've ran the card for hours at 105 degree with no crashes at all in some games like The Witcher 3. Its a problem with downvolting and downclocking.
Its not problem from motherboard ram or cpu.
Create a profile for each application u have trouble and set minimum voltage to 1070mv and memory timings 1 or 2. also, increase lower core clocks so it doesnt downclock.
I've had trouble in times where in the game losses power needs like when switching characters on GTA V or opening a map. u get me?
there was such a problem.
some games did not start - black screen freezes
and with reduced power consumption settings (-50%) after some time a black screen, but the game continues.
check the presence of thermal paste on the processor of the video card. I didn't have some of it.
They lose nothing by trying this solution
The problems I was getting was
Radeon error 1000 or kernel 41 in the event viewer. mostly by having chrome open next to the game or only the game after 14 or 30 min.
