I just bought a AMD GPU for the first time(RX 570 4GB), I tried installing 2 of the latest drivers available (19.3.1 Optional) and (19.1.1) both of them work fine until they simply freeze! i cant even close the app. i need to close the Radeon settings: host application.exe in the task manager.
windows 10 64bits version 17763.316(not sure if every update is installed)
processor Ryzen 5 2600
8gb HyperX dual channel(compatible with moba QVL list)
Rog Strix x470-f gaming( bios American Megatrends Inc. 0225, 09/02/2018) not the latest avalible.
psu CX 550
1 SSD 120GB
can a driver freezing issue be assumed as a defect in my GPU?
in my benchmarks everything looks fine, I get 95 fps at Cinebench.
gpu clock 1244mh maximum
memory clock 1750mhz maximum
maximum temperature playing bf 1 ultra settings after a few hours is never more than 72c
gpu gigabyte radeon rx 570 gaming 4gb gv-rx570gaming-4gd gddr5
I want to ask why this gpu only uses 90 watts at 100% usage? isnt it supposed to consume 150 watts?
I dont use any anti virus and my firewall is off.
here is an image of power consumption when playing a game.
