I recently bought a XFX 6900 XT Black Edition.
I am not able to pass a Benchmark test in Time Spy. It pemanently occurs an error during Graphic test 1.
I tried several things like clock rate or fan speed. No positive result. Keeps crashing. The Wattman test passes successfully though. Also I did not have any issues with unigine heaven benchmark.
Do´ not really know how to fix this.
Try 'overclockers uk, overclock.net' rx6900xt owners thread, they'll help you out with stable oc options.
CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X, no OC
PSU: Be Quiet Straight Power 11 Gold 750W
RAM: GSkill Trident Z 2x8GB 3600MHz
MB: Gigabyte Gaming X570 Gaming X
CPU Cooling: NZXT 62x
Case: Be quiet Dark Base 700
SAM is on.
Drivers and Bios are up to date.
I connected the VGA with two separate cables on two different rails on my psu (PCIe1, PCIe3 as described in psu manufacturer manual).
Currently at work but can provide a picture later.
What I have done so far:
Benchmark Test with Time Spy with standard AMD Software Settings --> Permanent failure during Intro order Graphic Test 1 (Time Spy "An error occurred" ). Actually it only passed once after I reinstalled Windows and set preset to Loud, when I tried to repeat the test it failed again (See attached pic for Score)
Benchmark Test with Unigine Heaven --> Passed
Benchmark Test with Shadow of the Tomb Raider Demo --> Passed, Settings "High@2K"
Benchmark Test with Borderlands 3 --> Passed , Settings "Ultra@2K"
Benchmark Test with Time Spy Extreme, AMD Preset "Loud" --> Passed
Benchmark Test with Port Royal, AMD Preset "Loud" --> Passed
Please see attachments for further details.
I do not want OC or UV the VGA. Just plug in and enjoy gaming. I mean that is what you should expect from a card of this price range.
If you are using msi afterburner try removing it and see if the behavior persists. Time Spy works fine on my rx 6900 xt. Are you using separate rails for the gpu pcie connectors?
17.2.1 yields even better results.
You should also reset the 'Tuning', then disable it (Factory Reset) while your troubleshooting the issue.
