Edit: September 2019. The issue came back so I RMA'd it to XFX, they were able to reproduce the issue via running Unigen Heaven 4.0



So I have a XFX GTS Black Core Edition Radeon RX 580 and I've been getting intermittent blackscreen since as long as I can remember:

Here are three videos to demonstrate what I am talking about:




The AMD driver version in those three videos are 18.9.2.



I have also downgraded to 18.5.1, an older version of the driver, hoping it would provide a more stable performance. It however did not fix the issue:






BUT, Today I discovered this comment on the linus forums, and so I tried it out and IT WORKED! No more blackscreen!


To recap the steps in Wattaman:

pushing the power limit up to +50%, increasing the fan RPMs and Lowering the temp target, as well as Undervolting the VRAM from 950mv to 900mv and lowering the Core voltage to 1137mv instead of 1150mv
