Is that Forza Horizon 3? I have a R9 295x2 so i can do some testing to see if this is a global issue or one local to your system.
In order to help troubleshoot, it would be useful if you could follow the guide i wrote on Guru3D in order to setup an onscreen display overlay using MSI Afterburner. Check out the Advanced Section of the guide here. Is My CrossFire Setup Working Correctly? [Basic/Advanced Guide] - Guru3D.com Forums
Are you running games in exclusive fullscreen mode?
How many displays are you running? Please provide more information about your system config and settings used.
Yes,it was forza horizon 3 but i refunded it because of the performance issues and bugs in the game.As for the CF logo i enabled it now i can see it in game ( cs go ) but my fps is still low from 120-220 and the fps is unstable.I am only running one display which is 32" Led Samsung max resolution 1366x768 at 60 Hz,Os is windows 10 pro 64 bit and yes i run all games in full screen mode.i also have finished setting up the Msi afterburner now what should i do next maybe you can run cs go on your 295x2 and tell me the results.
Intel i7 5960x
32GB DDR4 Ram

Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit
Single Display on HDMI 1366x768 60 Hz
I don't have CS:GO to test, but i know that the game is very CPU limited, especially when playing multiplayer so you will see drops like that as the CPU becomes the limitation. This is magnified by playing at a low resolution. You can test this yourself with the overlay. Monitor GPU usage, my guess is it will be quite low due to the limitation. You might just be better off disabling CrossFire for this particular game.
Regarding Forza Horizon 3, CrossFire was not supported on this title as Microsoft using encryption on their game executables which means our driver cannot read the file.
Before Aug update the game ran fine with locked 300 fps never got any kind of lag after the update the fps is unstable after i disabled the CF the fps was the same but the shutter and spikes are really big the fps from 150 drops to below 60 more now and the game stops for like 1 sec or less with cf on i do get low fps and fps drops but there is no lag even if it drops i will check the Cpu usage with the Msi after burner and update you with the results
And i also get low fps in dota 2 150-180 is the normal fps i get so the issue is Source games only the newer ones old source games also run fine dota 2 runs fine but is giving low fps compared to my pc and the latest problem i have is my gpu drivers crash sometimes in Cs go Dota 2 or civilization.In dota 2 the game just gets stuck with the audio running in the background i have to use task manager to close it yestarday cs go got stuck 2 but it resumed after 6 or 7 secs and for the civilization the screens goes RED and the Pc restarts it self.
GPU usage is what you want to check, if it's low that could indicate a CPU limitation.
What are other games like?
Dota 2 low fps if you look at my pc's specs and the game it self i get 140-180 med end pcs getting like 200 above and the latest problem i have is my gpu drivers crash sometimes in Cs go Dota 2 or civilization vi.In dota 2 the game just gets stuck with the audio running in the background i have to use task manager to close it yestarday cs go got stuck 2 but it resumed after 6 or 7 secs and in civilization vi the screens goes RED and the Pc restarts it self.
So i checked out the usage by playing Cs go and i got these results
Usage:Avg 66% Max 70%
Temp: Min 50'c Avg 53'c Max 54'c Min 50'c Avg 51'c Max 53'c
Clock: Min 998 Avg 1000 Max 1018 Min 300 Mhz Avg 300 Mhz Max 300 Mhz
Mem:1250 Mhz/824 Mhz 150 Mhz
GRam:Avg 5810 MB/8154 MB Max 6286 MB/8154 MB
Usage:Min 15% Avg 17% Max 18%
Temp:Min 40'c Avg 42'c Max 43'c

Which August update the game ran at 300 fps?
Can you download Unigine Heaven and complete a benchmarking run so i can check your score? Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 Windows Download
Is your system overclocked at all? A Red screen usually points towards hardware instability with either the CPU or memory in my experience.
Cs Go got massive updates in August after updating the game i never got 300 fps but before the game was updated i use to get 300 + fps and that red screen issue is only coming Civilization Vi i didnt get red screen on any other game i use to get red or some other screen issue before on gta but that was fixed when i updated my GPU drivers and my pc isnt overclocked
my RX 480 running at same res, doesn't look to be much wrong with your card as far I can see,

Check you min fps and mine also note that ur processer maybe 8 core but single core performance is less compared to intel processers and i didnt have the issue with the bench mark my main issue was is with future games and Csgo giving me low fps and fps drops while i play amdmatt asked me for the benchmarks and i gave it to him i also downgraded to 16.9.2 and i think that red screen issue is also gone from Civilization vi will keep checking it
I get the same minimum FPS on all of my graphics cards on that test, so you can ignore that as it's a bug with Unigine. If you do multiple runs one after the other, it will sometimes go up. You score looks good you are right where you should be, So there is no problem with your GPU.
This looks to be an issue related to CS:GO. Have you contacted the developer to report the performance drop since they patched the game?
i have been talking to them since a month and it felt like they appointed people with no experience of tech they didnt know anything they made me remove Ccleaner and other programs saying they have conflicts with steam,the result was same and they kept asking me for the pc msconfig again and again its was really annoying.they also made me redownloaded the game more then 3 times and i even installed it in my ssd but no difference was made in end i even reinstalled my windows formated all my data even but still the problem is there

here's a tip concerning the Xbox app https://www.reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/4vwiu8/how_fix_csgo_fps_and_tweak_windows_cfgs_after/
here's a tip concerning using all cpu cores/threads
-novid - skips the valve intro
-high - priorotizes cs:go on your CPU
-threads [number of cores in your PC] - allows CSGO access the amount of cores used
make sure there are no game recording / streaming software running.
if used check that ingame chat software is not causing fps drop
make sure game is running in full screen
I would also mention try using Clockblocker, CSGO I believe is more a cpu bound game and more so in low res, gpu maybe lowering its power state in game, this does occur in some games according to a number of AMD gpu owners. It lifts the clock speed. It will set the card at full speed but will only consume a small amount of power, uses around 7 watts on my RX480.
Thank you for the tips but i have tried all of them adding -high causes more fps drops in game also others had no impact on the game i even disabled the steam ui in game and all i got was 5-6 fps boost i will try clockblocker now
Well tryed it no effect on performance even lowered my graphics still game ran like it does no increase in fps
