XFX Vega 56 Computer Crash In-Game.

Hello, first the computer specs: It's a Desktop

Windows 10 x64 Home Edition

XFX Vega 56

AMD FX-6320

8GB 2133 Ram

Radeon Version 18.2.1

Monitor: acer XFA240 1080p 144HZ 1MS Using Displayport

Not sure of power supply, do know it's 800W

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P AM3+

Now my issue:

I can browse my computer perfectly fine, but as soon as i go into a game, no matter the game, it will black screen and have an audio glitch that will persist until I power off the computer, I just upgraded to Windows 10 upon finding that AMD stopped supporting Windows 8.1 (Why?). Previously I was using an AMD R9 280X

I have updated Windows completely, Updated the drivers for AMD

I'm pretty stumped, I was hoping upon receiving the card to basically be plug and play, even if just needing a driver update.

I have the card plugged in both 8-pin ports, it is running from 1 cable that split to 2, don't see why it would matter truly.

Games I have tried, Dying Light (lasted ~1min In-game before crash) World of Tanks(5 minutes)

I have not attempted any other games yet, but I am running both on Maximum settings

Anything would be amazing, i have been wanting this card since it released.

Re: XFX Vega 56 Computer Crash In-Game.

You may want to connect two separate 8-pin cables to your Vega. There may not be enough power coming out of each cable to drive the Vega 56, so the least you can do is to split the load between the two.

Re: XFX Vega 56 Computer Crash In-Game.

I do have 2 separate 8-pin connectors hooked up to it, have tested the

graphics card on 2 amd builds, 2nd computer used a 480. Only crashed out

the game and had to be closed with task manager to continue using the

second computer.
