Radeon RX 580 GPU usage and frequency spikes

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am currently trying to fix some problems that have been plaguing my gaming desktop. I have been experiencing multiple BSOD related to many different stop codes. However all of them pointed to hardware issues. Until recently I couldn't attribute it to overheating issues however a recent discovery left me quite alarmed.

The one thing these BSOD had in common is the fact that they pretty much all occurred during gaming sessions or sometimes, rather exceptionally, during video streaming over my web browser.

After much troubleshooting, including clean reinstalling my Graphic card drivers (atm running 20.1.2) using DDU in safe mode and manually reinstalling the drivers for my motherboard and many, many other troubleshooting steps available out there...

I appear to have collected some relevant data using 3Dmark that exposes some rather unusual behavior from my hardware. It appears that  for some reason, my GPU goes unstable - or - unresponsive due to a spike in both frequency and temperature. I have never witness such symptoms before.

This predicament leaves me quite perplexed. It appears that under stress, my computer attempts to crank up the frequency of the GPU drastically until the whole thing becomes unstable. Thankfully, the tool I used didn't cause my computer to BSOD like it would typically do in games and I was able to collect the data from the attachment.

I have the report from 3Dmark saved in a safe location and can submit it if required along with any other log file, but for now I am just looking for information about the behavior itself.

What could possibly cause this phenomenon and how would I go about ensuring this undesirable behavior stops?

I'll just request a refund on this card that is still under warranty and get a card from Nvidia then.

The way this matter has been handled after three updates ... not even a "known issue" statment from them...

AMD never provide decent drivers... its always a mess...

They can't even update it without having the code to collapse on itself (hence us having to use DDU all the time)

That is totally unaceptable, a real clown show.

Here is the report on a crash I had recently, directly related to AMD Radeon software.

I suspect its related to my problems:

Just did a Clean install of the newest version, after reinstalling windows altogether,

and still experiencing this issue.

Please, someone out there at AMD, do something to assist me.

I refer you to a long running thread on the R5 3600 processor.

Not sure why but the november 2019 1.0.0.4B BIOS update fixed most of the problems but not all of the issues I have uncovered. BIOS 1405 is the latest one so far for your motherboard. Not sure if a new one will surface anytime soon.

The problems are not memory related, it has more to do with drivers and 20.1.3 is the latest offering

if necessary DDU can be used to clean up driver messes

I already run 20.1.3, as stated in some previous post.

I already used DDU to update my drivers.

Any fix on this issue or at least acknowledgement on AMD's part?

The issues are persisting and are preventing me from using my system by constantly causing it to crash!

The steps provided have done nothing to stop this behavior!

Please provide further assistance on this matter. This is a serious issue caused by the Radeon driver.

I guess all you can do it wait for the next driver like the rest of us
