my new Vega 56 is causing some really weird problems and I hope that somebody can help me:


So in a couple of games like Overwatch and Star Wars Battlefront 2 for example, in benchmarks like Haeven as well, 

my GPU is around 99% usage, the core clock is around 1550-1600mhz and the temps get up to max. 75C, powerdraw is at around 250W and the games run just fine. 


My Ryzen 5 1600 is at around 50% usage and 50-60C


So far so good..... 


But in some other games like Risk of Rain 2 or Battlefield 1 for example the usage hovers around 40% and the core clock seems to be locked to max 1220mhz for no reason whatsoever, therefore my fps are just as bad as they used to be with my gtx 1050ti, the GPU temp stays at 50C. 


In Borderlands 2 this gets even worse the game stutters like crazy , the GPU usage is at 20% and the coreclock drops and rises from 400-1000mhz which causes my game to run abysmally bad (fps drop down to 15 )


What I have done / tried so far :


-Disabled windows fast start-up

-increased the power limit to 50%

-un-/reinstalled drivers (tried beta driver too)

-reinstalled the vega 56 itself

-over- /underclocking
