GPU Usage seems low

Hello guys,

I need second opinion about sending RX 5700 XT Pulse on RMA.

The issue

  • It seems that usage is not acting normally, it is jumping too much in my opinion.
  • I tried running my gpu on 1440p no problem with GPU usage, runs at 99% all the time. 1080p jumps around and is not stable.
  • It is not and CPU bottleneck (CPU is running at 30%).

My PC

  • CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
  • MB: GB B450 Aorus Elite
  • GPU: Sapphire RX 5700 XT Pulse
  • RAM: Viper 4 3000MHz 2x8GB
  • PSU: EVGA 650W Gold Quality
  • Monitor: Alienware 240Hz with Freesync

I recorded short video with overlay on (1080p no overclock).

Thank you for your help.

Edit: When I'm out of the game (game is running) my gpu is running at 99%.

Lower resolution panels are not as brutal as 4K and above for gaming

My RX 480 8GB hardly can handle gaming at 3840x2160 with demanding modern 64-bit games

At 1920x1080 however my card barely get warmed up.

I know that 1080p isn't demanding as much as 4K or 1440p but the issue is somewhere in the GPU itself. 

If I pause the game, GPU is at 99% utilization and running on max Core clock.

Re: GPU Usage seems low

not sure but some games in the lobby load the GPU, could be for tuning in-game settings

Re: GPU Usage seems low

Actually found the issue updated to F51 and the problem started appearing.

Downgraded to F50 and the issue is gone. Going to sell this card cause I

had enough of this. Going to buy 2070S instead and it's coming from big AMD

fanboy.

Bad as radeon drivers can be, the cannot compared to the worst of them all.

GeForce driver 196.75 had a defective fan profile that locked fans at 30% regardless of temperature.

Lemme know when you get the new card. So I can arrange delivery....

Re: GPU Usage seems low

Its AMD's trash powerplay feature which downclocks the GPU.

It cant be fixed so RMA ASAP.

I am speculating that the R5 3600 may be one of the faulty ones, in light of the long thread over the processor on this forum.

For some reason there have been a lot of reported problems. I suggest a new BIOS may surface before long.
