Sapphire Nitro Rx480 4GB overheating to 89-90 and poor performance in all games?

 

I am very disappointed by the performance overall. I’ve many issues with this card.

  • In Idle state card is maintaining temps to around 50-55c, but in games like Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of Mordor temps goes very high to 85+ on lowest settings in game even I tried run games on lower resolutions, performance was better, But this is not acceptable, this card should easily handle most games on 1080p with atleast medium settings.
  • I tried to monitor other things as well, and i notices card is not maintaing core clock as well it goes to 1200+ and suddenly jumps down to even 300 on 100 GPU Load.
  • I’ve read many articles blogs but couldnt understand what is wrong with my card.

my Wattman Settings are attached, I’ve tweaked this area only rest is default.

 

Here is my system specs

Mobo: Asus Z170-A

CPU: Core i5-6600k

PSU: Corsair VS 650

RAM: Corsair 8gb ram

GPU Driver: 18.3.4

Case: Cooler Master K380

 

Let me know if you need more info about anything to understand my issues.
