Just happened recently about less than 1 month that my PC always black screen and auto restart. sent for diagnostic check and shop says broken gpu.

frequent crash when playing games, gta 5, anno 2025...

downloaded latest amd crimson and as a result got black pixels when playing gta 5. gone after alt tab. but will happen again after few secs/ relog / restart

gpu temp is normal around 60 when playing games. graphic setting not too high only about 2.7k of 4k gpu memory

 

anyone have the same issue or i just got a bad card? thinking to change the psu to 750/850W..

 

ps: thought of the thermal paste inside the gpu after google / discuss / ask ppl but still not fixed and warranty void coz i replaced the thermal paste

lesson learn = no more amd?
