Radeon VII Defaults to Low GPU Clocks at Restart

Max GPU core clocks defaults to 699 mhz after every restart. I have to manually save new settings in Wattman to get expected 1800 mhz GPU core clocks

System Configuration:

Motherboard: ASUS X470-i
CPU: AMD Ryzen 2700X
Memory: 16GB GDDR5
GPU: Sapphire Radeon VII
VBIOS: 113-D3600200-106
Driver: Adrenalin 19.4.2
OS: Windows 10 x64 (1809) (17763.437)

Steps to Reproduce:

Happens after every restart

Expected Behavior:

GPU Core clocks of 1800 mhz

Actual Behavior:

GPU core clocks defaults to 699 mhz after every restart. Requires changing settings in Wattman to get expected results.

What I've Tried:

  • Issue occurs with Adrenalin 19.4.1 and 19.4.2
  • Tried a clean installation with Adrenaline Drivers and DDU

Things to Note:

  • HBM Clocks are 1000mhz
  • Games or benchmarks do not crash
  • Upgraded from a VEGA 64 Limited Edition to the Radeon VII.

Solved:

Performed a clean Windows 10 Pro Installation.  I believe the issue could be from my previous VEGA 64 installation causing a performance issue with Windows.  I had no crashes.  Oddly If I reset Adrenalin Wattman it would revert to the expected performance, it just didn't save after every restart.
