I have a new system with a 3-monitor setup. Running Europa Universalis 4, which should not be graphically taxing for this card, gives me a hard video & system crash after 5-10 minutes of game play.
Describe your system:
Running EU4 in fullscreen/windowed mode (same resolution - 1920 x 1080) on the center 28" monitor, and Chrome on one of the side 24" monitors. After a few minutes, I'll get an unrecoverable crash with one or more of the monitors going full screen white or grey, and the remaining ones black screen. The only way to recover is normally through a hard reset, but sometimes that doesn't work and it requires a full power-cycle.
Things I've tried:
Removed the graphics drivers with DDU and reinstalled the latest recommended - version 16.11.4.
Installed all updated drivers for my motherboard.
Decreased the resolution (through Windows) on all three monitors to 1920 x 1080.
Tried a few different settings in the Radeon profile for EU4.
I had the same issue with Mass Effect 1 when I tried playing it with the MEUITM updated textures mod. The problem went away when running un-modded ME1.
Possibly relevant - sometimes when it crashes, I think I hear buzzing coming from the speakers on the monitors. My audio output is via a recent model Soundblaster card, but I do have HDMI audio available through the monitors.
Any suggestions would be quite welcome.
I upgraded to the latest hotfix package, 16.11.5, and still have the issue. I also get a crash after a couple of minutes in World of Warcraft. I haven't tried many other games, as this is a new system and I haven't had time to try them all.
Since these issues with the RX 480 seem to be widespread and without resolution, I'll likely give up on this card and replace it with something more reliable.
