Low performance with second screen video

I got two RX580 8Gb in Crossfire and have two Displays attached to the master card. One with DP and one with DIV.

When Im only playing games performance is fine and as expexted. As soon as I start a videostream on the second montior (DIV) my gaming performance dorps about 70%.


What I notice is that both cards run under full load with around 100W power consumption each, as soon as a Video is played on the second display, the pwoer consumption drops to 40W each. When I move the Window with the video to the primary display (DP), it all is running normal. Power Limit on both cards is set to +50%.


I can't seem to find a solution for this issue.


HDCP,  GPU scaling and Virtual Superresolution is turned of for both displays, Vsync ist turned off for gaming.
