      I noticed that after install the newest drivers 18.1.1 Adrenaline my graphics card Sapphire RX 480 Nitro 4GB start throttling GPU core clock always when temperature reach 70*C. It's a small temperature for such an efficient card. I tried reinstall drivers to old one when all was fine, but without positive result. Before that card worked perfectly reaching the max 75*C at 2200rpm fans.


      It's such annoying thing, because card losing the 30% of power.
