I challenge anyone with a X470 motherboard, a RX 5700XT and an 3rd gen ZEN2 Ryzen CPU. To try and run Tom Clancy's "The Division 2" game configured at 1080p resolution at Ultra quality, 144Hz refresh, and V-Sync OFF in the game settings. Then enable Free-Sync, EnhancedSync, and Anti-Lag all under Radeon Settings.

With those configurations you are going to get the best graphic quality with the highest frame rate, but probably like me just 5-10 minutes of game play because your game will crash like crazy and possibly reboot your entire system.

This has been my experience and I suspect it is a global issue with this hardware.

 

The specs of my PC running this game are:

Windows 10 Pro for Workstations 1903 Build
MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC with 7B77v19 BIOS revision
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X with BoostOverdrive with Enhanced 2 in BIOS
32GB DDR4 Viper4 3000 RAM OC to 3733 at 20-22-22-22-39 stable
Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition configured with a small OC and fan profile (don't worry, I tried it with no OC and still crashes) on Radeon Software 19.8.1
Installed on 1TB HDD

 

 

I find with the BIOS revision 7B77v1A released this month with the same configuration as above, I am able to get 15-20 minutes of game play before it crashes. 

 

Which leads me to wonder is X470 just not enough for Ryzen 3000 ?  Is X570 more stable with games released this year and Ryzen 3000?
