Very Poor Performance with RX 6800 XT

Jump to solution

Bought directly from AMD, first time using it today and performance is much worse than GTX 1070 in everything. Even Youtube videos stutter. I have two separate 8pin power cables connected, reconnected cables on both ends to make sure they are all the way in, reseated the GPU several times, and used DDU in safe mode to remove and reinstall latest AMD drivers twice.

No crashes and black screens so far, and no issues when using either GTX 1070 in games or Intel Graphics with Youtube.

I got the following in Battlefield 1 menus at 1080p no fps caps and no 3rd party software like MSI Afterburner installed.

17 FPS,  GPU util 99%, SCLK 2497 MHz, PWR 82 W, GPU temp 55 C, GPU Junction 62 C, GPU VRAM 1598 MB, GPU MCLK 1988 MHz, CPU util 48%, RAM Util 5.2 GB

CPU: Intel 4790K

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5

RAM: HyperX 1866MHz 16GB (2x 8GB)

PSU: Corsair HX1000 (black/grey label)

Latest Windows updates and Adrenalin 2020 20.11.2 from here.

Just my luck. I was "lucky" enough to get a 6800XT but like all good things, balanced by bad luck getting a faulty card.

I'll RMA later.

Possibly a bad GPU, if everything else on your System is o.k.

I had similar result with my 6800 very poor performance compared to my 2070S but neither drivers or Windows installed worked for me
