Re: Video TDR failure [Rx 5600 XT]

Jump to solution

This issue still appears, 10 months after launch. I am so close to RMA my card... I have an RX 5600 MSI Mech OC. The guys at MSI have been very helpful, but it seems this kind of issue is not their fault. The worst part is that now the driver team at AMD are probably busy over their heads with the 6000 series drivers, so anyone with a 5000 card will have to wait for quite some time before these issues are stabilized. Just one question with a yes or no answer, if you please: Is this TDR error caused by Freesync?

I can live without Freesync for a while, but not with a crashing every half hour card.

I agree...I've had this RX 5600 XT for 10 months as well. Driver issues and random system reboots. Games freezing. I went a while without any of these issues, and thought my problems were over, I was completely wrong. I'm hoping to see if disabling FreeSync will help for now. But I bought it for freesync and spent the money on freesync compatible monitors.

 

Hopefully our issues will all be solved, soon.

I can confirm that, in my case, Freesync was the problem. Once disabled, I haven't experienced any issues. I do have a Freesync monitor myself, so it's a bummer that I have to disable it, but, at least in Romania, I cannot get anything higher than a GTX 1660 SUPER for the money I spent on the RX 5600 XT. In my particular case, the lack of Freesync functionality is unfortunate, but it is the best performance for the money I can buy. I will live without Freesync until a fix will be available in the drivers. I do have to note that my DP cable is not the culprit here, since it worked perfectly with my old RX 580.

Just as an update, that may help some people, I have managed (so far) to get a stable gaming experience with my RX 5600 XT.

While playing Batman Arkham Knight, I got some weird crashes referring memory that could not be referenced. I first thought it was my RAM, but upon changing the sticks to two others, the problem persisted. I then realized that the memory that could not be referenced was not the RAM but the VRAM. My card is a MSI RX 5600 XT MECH OC, running the last vbios from MSI.

With the latest bios, the memory clock was pushed to 14000MHz, which seems to be too much for some cards. Some may support that frequency, but mine didn't. As you know, there is a big problem with GPU supply these days, so returning the card was not an option for me, since in Romania(where I live) buying a new one costs twice what I paid for mine.

What I did is flash the initial vbios (supporting 12000MHz) to the card. I still had to manually set the GPU P3(boost) clock to 1560MHz, since Radeon Software was setting it to 1780MHz, for some reason. At this point I had a stable, though slower experience. I had to flash the old bios, because with the new bios you could not underclock the VRAM.

My next step is to test stability with the VRAM set to 13000MHz. It should work, but I still have to test it.

Just an update... All issues have returned, even with the 12GHz vbios. Furthermore, I get OCCT video memory test errors. I'm sending it to service once again.
