NfS Hot Pursuit (2010) + Vega 64 = Crash

I´m a not-so-proud owner of a liquid cooled Vega 64 (SAPPHIRE-labeled) - system specs can be found below - and cannot longer play Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. After a few minutes I see some texture glitches, a few seconds later the game locks up (audio still there, but the screen freezes). The same system with either a 580 or a 1070 works like a charm.


The system in detail:


ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming Gear X370 Gaming X (BIOS P3.10)

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X @H2O

16 GiB Mushkin Redline @2.667

Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 64 Water Cooled @17.8.2

Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 Pro-Gaming

Samsung NVMe SSD 960 Evo

Crucial MX300

Seagate Barracuda


Enermax Digifanless


My first guess was the PSU ("only" 550w), but then again, newer and by far more demanding titles work fine.


OS is Windows 10 Pro 64 bit; all available updates installed.


Any ideas?


Thx in advance,
