I upgraded from the Intel build to new Ryzen build and still having issues without any improvements whatsoever.
For anyone having the same issue I recommend returning or RMAing the card. I tried everything I could think of, changing every BIOS setting, using different storage, different system (Windows 7, 10, Linux), different drivers, different monitors, mice, cables as well and many other things, nothing fixed it.


i upgraded from R9 280X to Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ (since my R9 280X died) and I have noticed a huge input lag in all games...


I reinstalled my Windows 7 (clean install), I also tested Windows 10, different drivers using DDU (both Crimson and Adrenalin). Linux based system on different drive. Problem is present in UEFI/BIOS as well.
I also disabled HDCP, so software doesn't seem to be the issue. Everything is basically set up the same as it was with R9 280X... I even tried the same driver that I used with 280X.
280X was very responsive, there was no input delay whatsoever...


It's much harder to aim in games, thanks to the input lag. Yes the input lag is also present in the desktop.


Yes, V-sync is disabled.


Is it common for GPUs to have more input lag than others?
Is RX 580 known to have this input lag?

Maybe my older hardware doesn't go well with my GPU?


8GB RAM (2x4GB) DDR3 1333MHZ.
Intel core i5-2500 (non K)
PSU Corsair AX750


I tested 2 different monitors I used with 280X, both via DVI and HDMI.
