    Radeon RX580 constant lag spikes, poor performance

    brandon6gc

                Don't know.

      • RAM
        • 8x2 (16GB) Corsair Vengeance DDR4 @2400MHz

      Basically, I bought this PC and upgraded it to Corsair Vengeance 8x2 DDR4 @2400MHz

       

      This PC... I play games like CS:GO and PUBG basically. I have non-stop problems with this computer being absolute terrible in those specific 2 games and other games. I get constant frame spiking. When I play PUBG and engage in a gunfight the I get god awful horrible spikes that cause me gunfights and in CS:GO same problem. Just horrible performance. The initial shots just freeze the whole game for about a second. Gameplay feels "delayed" in a sense that none of the movements are synchronized with what I'm physically doing versus what shows up on screen. I've tried every mix and match of settings in the Radeon settings. I've tried them on, I've tried them off and different combinations and yet no let up. I don't understand. I realize these specs are top of the line quality, however, it should allow me to play games 1080p ATLEAST ON THE LOWEST SETTINGS without giving me this awful heartache. I've even wiped my hard drive and started on a fresh copy of Windows 10 and I still can't catch a break. I'm getting to the point where I give up completely on this PC to be anything better than a web surfer and that's quite a disappointment for $750 or so... I've looked online endlessly for solutions for the graphics card and found no help. I really hope someone has a solution because it's EXTREMELY frustrating. I'm desperate for some direction or help.

       

      Thanks,

      Brandon

          some thoughts:

          1) your computer should power through those games at highest settings with no problems. CS:GO has been having issues for a lot of people since the last win 10 fall update.

          2) your problem descriptions can also apply to a bad internet connection

          3) your computer is under warranty, what does BB have to say?

          4) is there something hogging cpu cycles in taskmanager?

          5) is the GPU idling properly. i.e.  core clock @ 300 and memory clock @ 300 . While gaming core should jump to 1360 and mem to 2000

          you can use gpuz to monitor this and core temp.

          6) just to compare, install a few benchmarks and compare the results to similar computers. 3DMark is available on steam and may have some free benchmarks. Also superposition and Valley from  unigen.

            pls uninstall all stuff like MSI Afterburner or OBS - those inject stuff into DX - what can cause your problems...

             

            then uninstall driver with DDU in safe-mode
            and install latest driver provided by AMD

             

            if error persists: check if your GPU-Fan is working, also check the Temps;


            if still persists then there is maybe a prroblem with your PSU, MoBo or CPU or CPU-Cooling
