Hello everyone.

My Gigabyte RX 580 8GB is having a performance issue in several titles, including Dirt 4, Dirt Rally, Crysis 3 and Black Mesa.

I cannot play Crysis 3, even on medium the game stays in about  30 fps, the same happens in Dirt Rally on ultra, but it improves just a little by disabling ground cover, but still very diferent from the reviews i saw from YouTube.

However, I can play Shadow Warrior 2 on 1080p on ultra with 60 ~ 70 fps in most areas. The Talos Principle with Vulkan performed about 100 fps on ultra on 1080p as well. Crysis 2 runned on 140 fps on "extreme" presset and Arkham Knight 55 ~ 68 fps.

There are no blinking light near power connector, on Talos Principle the GPU usage hits 100% and the power consumption stays in ~135w and the GPU temps usualy stays in 70ºc, no unexpected reboots, crashes or anything else. 


There are no (visible) CPU bottlenecking (in any core).



  • Gigabyte RX 580 8GB GAMING;
  • Gitabyte ga-970-ud3p;
  • Cosair H45 watercoller;
  • Kingston 240gb SSD;
  • Seagate 1TB hard disk;
  • 600w power supply (i don't remember the brand name but it's 80 plus bronze);
  • 8GB RAM Kingston 1333Ghz;
  • Bulldozer FX-8120 8 cores - 3.8Ghz;
  • Windows 10 - latest update


What I tried:

  • Clean install (wiped everything, including Steam's library)
  • Setup the latest drivers (Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.2.3 Optional - from AMD website)
  • Setup AORUS ENGINE (from Gigabyte website)
  • Setup Steam and Origin
  • Downloaded the games
  • Run the games
  • Get disappointed
  • Removed AORUS and restarted (but nothing)
  • Changed the power limit to 50%+ on Wattman (but nothing)



Someone could help me please?
