Re: Drivers timeout

Fortnite has an issue with the latest "season" they came out with. Check with Epic to see when the fix is coming out. Pass this on, lots of the same complaints.

Re: Drivers timeout

hello ,

had this problem since yesterday evening , no game or benchmark would last more that 3s and then driver timeout ... even tested with a fresh windows install, tested it 20 times , even this morning again, but every 3d game would crash

so i was openning my computer to take the photo of serial number for rma , but then i tried some ultimate test :

i changed the place of the 2 pcie 8 pin connectors on the psu and disconnected every display except main display , and the problem disappeared , not sure what it comes from for now , if psu (multirail and not good rail) , or not well plugged psu , or problem with gpu power connector , or multi display problem... but seems it's working fine again , 

i will tell you if i can find more about it

Re: Drivers timeout

update from last time : it did it again 2-3 weeks later , starting getting artefacts on desktop , and not been able to start any game without instant crash again, i RMA the card , waiting to see if amd will change it (hoping they don't bother about the fact that I watercooled it as it's not my first watercooled card and i didn't destroy anything .. the card was even well cooled)... meanwhile , got myself a msi 6900xt trio X , working fine and strong but it's really too expensive for the little difference with the 6800xt , but what i appreciate with trio x is the 3 dp connectors , that's great as i had problems with usb c too ...

Re: Drivers timeout

You got lucky with the Trio that you didn't get a "Trio" of issues! Keep that and sell the RMA card would be my advice. Since the Trio most likely hasn't been converted to liquid cooling, I'd skip that as well, unless you want that horse out of the barn as well.

Re: Drivers timeout

You obviously haven't read about the numerous issues with the Trio series and MSI GPU's these days. You got a god one, so you're lucky. XFX isn't fairing better with a slew of Merc 319's going back as well. I wanted one of those so bad and it sold out from under me on eBay. I wound up getting the Gigabyte RX 6800 16G and it runs perfectly, even OC's as high as the XFX I wanted so badly. So I got lucky as well more than likely and saved $60.

Re: Drivers timeout

nope i searched if there was problem with that card , but nope didn't find anything ...in fact i 'm not really paying attention to people talking about their "problems" with black screen or bsod, that's often about something else then the gpu (psu , ram, sometime drivers , but amd communicates about these problems so , accusing amd drivers is the easy way nowadays ) ... i'm more concerned about hardware potential problem signs like artefacts or glitches..got to sort readings a lot ...

what i find funny is people think if they go elsewhere they won't have any problems , but obviously they don't read other forums as well ... same whinners everywhere ! lol
the best advice i think i can give is not buying from scalper without being sure to be able to apply warranty and amd warranty is only for the buyer not for the second hand buyer

as said , for now 6900xt working perfectly fine ... ! and it seems amd has sent me a new 6800xt , should arrive soon
