Hi everyone,


Equipped with 18.8.2, for several days now, I have noticed in Speccy and Hwmonitor that my graphic card loads at full in memory and clock (2000Mhz and 300 Mhz) while there's no activity (0% according to Wattman profile from AMD Radeon software settings).


So even if I do nothing on my PC and let it runs alone, my video card loads at full and my temperature stuck between 50 and 53 °c all the time.


Yesterday evening, I have uninstalled the driver of my video card with DDU and reinstall the latest version of driver (18.8.2) but the problem remains after that, so nothing has changed at all.


I suspected Intel optane memory (which is installed and activated on my system), but after I have disabled it, the problme is still the same. (Intel® Optane™ Memory—Revolutionary Memory )


Then I have renamed amddvr.exe and amdow.exe and end theme from task manager, again, nothing has changed.


I have lastly uninstalled speccy, then Hwmonitor. Still remains after that.


So after I did all these steps, what can I do next?
