XFX Radeon RX 6900XT MERC319 BLACK Bad Performance, Blackscreens, Low GPU Clock

Jump to solution

I had no chance to buy rtx 3080 so i decided after 16 Years to give AMD a chance...

Now i wasted 1400€ for a Graphic Card that has lower Performance then the old rtx2080 (660€).

Why are you selling overpriced things with very bad Drivers?

Why do i have now white Flickering with Freesync at 50-60-70 FPS? Is that a Feature?

Windows is Fresh Installed and Updated, Bios,Chipset all **bleep** is up to date.

All parts are on normal Clocks and compatibility.

I have Blackscreens with following Games:

ANNO, Division 2, BF4,WOW,Valheim on both modes, World of Tanks,Dayz,Arma3,Pubg,Squad,blabla.

Only two Games work fine: Cyberpunk,CNC Remastered 😄

Why is the GPU getting low Clocks like 88mhz 300mhz with full Action ingame?

How can i have 25 fps sometimes in this Games with that gpu ???

I have no Power Safe options, the Power Adapter has enough watts.

(1). RE: MSI 6900XT 
Is this your GPU?
https://www.xfxforce.com/shop/xfx-speedster-merc-319-amd-radeon-tm-rx-6900-xt-black-gaming-graphics-...

(2). Uninstall any 3rd party overclocking tools like MSI Afterburner and Rivatuner Software. 

(3). Make sure you have not turned on Radeon Chill in Global or Game graphics settings.

(4). Adrenalin 2020 20.3.1 reintroduced Frame Rate Target control. Make sure it is not set. 
 
(5). Make sure you use the following instructions to remove the old Adrenalin Driver and Reinstall Adrenalin 2020 20.3.1 
https://community.amd.com/t5/drivers-software/amd-driver-fix-and-install-using-ddu/m-p/426238

(6). Once you reinstall the driver, please post a screenshot  of the Performance -> Global Tuning. Tuning and Game Tuning. 

Thanks.

Try installing just the drivers, and skipping the Adrenalin : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtIh1fnuNoE

This worked for me.

Thanks for the Help.

Yes i have the XFX Speedster merc 319 6900xt black.

I wiped the driver with DDU and installed it new, and Deaktivated Msi Afterburner and the Overlay.
No Radeon Chill and Frame Rate Target control is set.

Now i had no blackscreen in Valheim, BF4 and Cyberpunk. 5ours total. Thats better 😄

But below 70fps i have white flickering, thats annoying.

I have Freesync Monitor Benq EX3501R and its enabled in the Graphic Driver. I never had that flickering thing before the 6900xt.

Changed from 100 to 99 98 97 Hz...

How can i fix this ?

Global Settings and Gamet settings are the same.

you can try to deactivate freesync too , see if it changes anything with that flicker problem , or not.. not sure you need it with a 6900xt and a 3440x1440 monitor vsync should be ok without it as the gpu should give you 100fps (except cyberpunk maybe , but at 60 fps you can try to lower monitor freq then)

In Adrenalin 2020: Go to Settings ->Display->Display Specs.
It should report the FreeSync Range of the monitor there. 

Thanks.

According to this: https://benqimage.blob.core.windows.net/driver-de-file/Datenblatt_BenQ_EX3501R.pdf

FreeSync range on your monitor is: 
Eingangsfrequenz H/V  28 -155 kHz / 48 -100Hz

The FreeSync range reported  in Adrenalin GUI should be: 48 to 100Hz reported by display.

Try the following. 

(1). Turn off in game Vsync. 
(2). Turn on FreeSync. 
(3). Set Global FRTC to 99.

Does that stop the flickering?

Then try 

(4). Turn on in game Vsync. 
(5). Turn on FreeSync. 
(6). Turn  Global FRTC off.

How does that perform?

Which GPU - Monitor cable connection are connection are you using? DisplayPort or HDMI? 
Are you sure the cables are correct versions?
Does Flicker happen on both Display port and HDMI connection?

Thanks.

Hello. Thanks for your Help.

Now i made all Changes like you said. But no matter which FRTC 100 99 98 97 96, Freesync on off ....

Now i found out that i only have Flicker free with Freesync off and FRTC 100 and Vsync on ingame.

I only have the One Displayport Cable dp1.4  that was in the Benq Monitor Package.

I dont know should i Buy a new one? But i think with old Graphic Card it was no problem. What do you think about it?

But i still have Moments with low GPU clock and a 1 second Lagg. Junction Temperature is 65C. Maybe its from Valheim ..^^

Is the GPU Driver forcing a Eco thing? i dont have any Eco Options set.

Should i fixate the Clock?

But why is Freesync not working, is the Monitor the Problem or the GPU Driver? is that a well known Problem?

check driver notes "known issues" (i don't know if you experiences the same , but if it is in the list , it will surely be corrected ) :

"

  • Brightness flickering may intermittently occur in some games or applications when Radeon™ FreeSync is enabled, and the game is set to use borderless fullscreen.
  • Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround."
