Hope you are enjoying your new 480.
1. This will be a compatibility issue with the adapter you are using, VGA is not natively supported on the 480.
2. This is a known issue which is under investigation. We hope to address it in a future Crimson driver, apologies for any inconvenience caused.
I have experienced the Wattman crashing myself, and i would recommend making a shortcut to Radeon Settings and pinning it to your Taskbar. If it crashes, click the shortcut and within two seconds Radeon Settings will launch and Wattman will work again.
Yup, to be honest, this is the first time i buy Radeon graphics card, been using Nvadia since 9 years ago, i'm really enjoying this RX480, very satisfied with gaming, and i hope the next drivers will make it better!.
So it's my adepter making this wierd green screen and other things, then i will buy a new monitor as soon as i can.
When Radeon setting crashes it's just right click on desktop>Radeon settings i hope it will be fixed soon
I've final question, as i mentioned that i've changed the fan speed and tamparatures range in Wattman, does this consume more power? or affect by any negative mean ?
To keep my gpu cooler i changed fan range from 1500-2500 rpm and Temps frpm 70-85 and it's barely reaching 80c max now
Glad to hear it.
If you are upgrading your monitor make sure you buy a FreeSync display, it will be one of the best investments for silky smooth gaming you could ever make. We have a list of FreeSync panels here: FreeSync™ Technology | AMD
What resolution are you using at the moment?
No it should not affect power by any noticeable margin. If you want the best possible performance, i would use these settings in Wattman.
If you like to tweak, you could try lowering the Voltage, it will reduce temperatures and allow the fan to operate at a lower speed naturally. If you are running stock clocks, you should be able to decrease the Voltage without any harm to stability. As an example, my card uses a default voltage of 1137, and i am able to lower it to 1050.
If you do decide to try lowering the voltage, decrease it in -0025 increments and stop once you experience any signs of instability. Here are the settings I used below.
I see, Thanks
I've almost the same settings except voltage it's on default
Same fan range, but Temperatures from 70-85
But the power limit% is still 0,, do i have to make it 50?
I'm using 1080p atm, can't change it higher because of the adepter, max supported 1080p unfortunately
I just changed power limit % to 50 as u posted above, seems i've more fps but i don't know how, can you explain this to me? i'm damn newbie with Radeon o.o Very interesting driver and application with AMD.
At stock the 480 may lower the core clock occasionally to maintain the 150W TDP. Increasing power tune to 50% will allow the 480 to maintain its 1266Mhz core clock permanently, so you may get a small FPS boost with it at 50%.
I see, well i think i don't need to increase it atm, as long as i can't use over 1080p currently. I've way more than normal fps in all games. i assume it will be just a more power for nothing+-
Thanks for all your help pal
