Hello, I have an issue with my RX 480 (Asus Strix RX 480 8GB OC), it used to have good performance: Doom 90 FPS +, BF 1 80-90 FPS, Far Cry Primal 70 FPS +.
I had to reinstall Windows and I also installed a new RAM stick, after this I got only 50-60 FPS in all games and drops to 10-20.
I have monitored the temps for CPU and GPU and both remain in good level, CPU 60° max and GPU 65° max, memory remains stable for GPU.
I have reinstalled drivers using DDU and the performance keeps low, I don't know what could it be.

I was looking at your system configuration and noticed that you are running an intel processor. I was thinking that my Radeon RX480 never did run good no matter what I did on my i7-4790K, but on a Ryzen 7 1700 it's another story. I'm thinking if you want to see any sort of performance out of the Radeon RX 480 it better be on a Ryzen CPU. What are your thoughts on the matter?
Also, I am currently running Windows 10 Pro version 1703 build 15063.250 and the RX480 runs great. I bet if I put it back into my intel rig that it would choke like a baby chokes on a hard biscuit.
It has absolutely zero to do with running an Intel CPU and the suggestion is asinine. I'm running an i5 with a 480 and have no issues. There is a software conflict somewhere that is effecting OP. tcortinag what processes are running at startup? Do you have AV software running besides defender?
I would suggest disabling/deleting any third party graphics controls...Afterburner/MSI/Trixx/Asus/etc. They conflict with the new ReLive controls.
As to your question, look to your Power Limit > AMD graphics performance
The suggestion is NOT asinine, you obviously have no idea the alliances that exist between hardware manufacturers and software engineers, programmers etc.. My observations are based on my own experiences with the Radeon RX480 and NVidia GPU's. The only AV software running is native to Windows. There's a reason why racing games from Codemaster's have an intel and NVidia splash screens, there's an alliance between them and to think otherwise is naïve. So if you have an AMD GPU the optimizations that exist for an intel CPU will have absolutely NO affect on a configuration using an AMD CPU. So don't tell me it has absolutely zero to do with running an intel CPU, now that's just plain naïve.
