Re: RX6900XT power consumption too low

I think i just solved this issue on my setup.

I was having the exact issue OP was talking about and started screwing around in Div 2 and playing with settings to try and force the gpu to pull more power. Only after turning on DX12 did it boost to 270w and stay there. so i figured hey lets update DX12 maybe thats the problem? But i bet like some of you with this problem you are running an un-activated copy of windows. After purchasing a key from windows store (yup definitely windows smile) and updating all the system updates i was behind on did the card consistently hit its power marks. check your updates hope this helps some of you!

Re: RX6900XT power consumption too low

I had the same issue. My build: asus dark hero, 5800x, trident z neo 16gb 3600mhz cl14, and a gigabyte gaming oc 6900xt. In game menus I would get 220-260watts, but in actual games it would drop to 60-80watts. Especially Apex legends. I used DDU to install driver 21.2.1 then I installed driver 20.12.1 FROM THE GIGABYTE WEBSITE! Not AMDs! Then I enabled Direct x 12 like you said. Even though I have an activated windows 10 pro it was disabled. After enabling Direct x 12, and installing the driver listed on gigabytes site. I was running 270watts IN GAME. With 240fps ( 1440p maxed out settings+ SAM) instead of 60-100watts 70-120fps. I hope this helps someone out there as I was struggling with this for a week or 2.

Re: RX6900XT power consumption too low

I had the same issue, but enabling Dx12 only got me from 60watts in game (Apex legends) to 80watts or so. So what I did to fix my setup( and working thus far) is I had driver version 21.3.1 on my gigabyte gaming OC 6900xt. I used DDU and fully wiped drivers. Then instead of going to AMD for drivers. I looked up the driver listed on gigabyte’s site. Which was driver 20.12.1 Once I installed driver version 20.12.1 on my gigabyte 6900xt, and enabled direct x12 in windows ( even though I had activated windows 10 pro DX12 was disabled) Apex legends went from 80-100watts/80-120fps in game to 270ish watts/220-240fps (1440p max settings+SAM) hopefully this helps someone out there. Took me a couple of days of screwing around to get it going.

Re: RX6900XT power consumption too low

I fixed it for my 6800XT! It was all about the new driver 21.3.X
Went on amd page and got 21.2.2. Used the driver cleanup utility from amd and reinstalled the old driver.

Also did this, it worked for me

On GTAV ultra, went from -100W, 10-40% GPU util. and 20-60fps, to 250W 98% GPU util, 80-150 fps

also ryzen 5600 is not nearly a bottleneck, had 20-40% CPU util. or someting

Thanks a lot !
