You have another issue ...the drivers work fine for me. My bet is you have screwed around with clocks,fans, temp, etc. Delete all the third party graphics controllers (Asus,MCI,Trixx,Afterburner,etc,etc). They conflict with Wattman settings.
Set your AMD control panel back to default to undo any/all the changes you made.
Change two things only:
MAX temp (LEAVE OTHER SLIDER AT 45c)
Everything else at default....automatic. Simple.
Delete all the third party graphics controllers (Asus,MCI,Trixx,Afterburner,etc,etc).
AMD drivers only. Nothing else.

Same as my card......It's popular because no one understands the Wattman controls...and AMD doesn't help by not publishing any explainations and mis-labeling some settings Like this :
People think this slider is for setting "Target Temp"..it's not..it should read MINIMUM. Never change from the minimum...set your MAX at 80c. Leave all other controls at default. Your fans will become involved at 45c and gradually increases as the temperature rises.
Yes it will help...and make sure your COMPUTER power plan is set to 'performance'...not 'balanced'.
