After 3 weeks of problems i decided to make a thread about this. I bought Nitro+ RX 580 8gb special edition (changed with my old r7 260x) and I just noticed huge stuttering / lagging ; dropping fps in some programs (ex : Youtube, Display Settings (after leaving full-screen, moving the cursor left-right it drops the frames and it starts lagging ; scrolling down have drop fps + stuttering). In games it works perfectly I dont see any stuttering / lagging or dropping fps but on Desktop its garbage. The only game that i've seen some problems is Dota2 other than that nothing. I have also done 3DMark (2 Sky Diver Screen capture - ebd19e6159b839dcb4e139d5a613b944 - Gyazo ; 1 Time Spy https://www.3dmark.com/spy/8398999 ) no problems it looks flawless. 


                     My PC (Desktop System) :


  • OS : Windows 10 PRO 10.0.18362.329 (Win10 RS6 [1903] May 2019 Update)
  • Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-H61M-DS2 v3.0 
  • CPU : QuadCore Intel Core i5-3470, 3600 MHz
  • Graphic Card : Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 8GB SE (1430MZH)
  • PSU : Seasonic Focus+ 650W (Bought it today, thought it was my old psu that caused these problems.)
  • Memory : Avant F6451U67F9333G 4 GB DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM  (9-9-9-24 @ 666 MHz)  (8-8-8-22 @ 609 MHz)  (7-7-7-20 @ 533 MHz)  (6-6-6-17 @ 457 MHz)
  • Patriot Memory PSD34G133381 4 GB DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM  (10-9-9-24 @ 666 MHz)  (9-9-9-24 @ 666 MHz)  (8-8-8-22 @ 609 MHz)  (7-7-7-20 @ 533 MHz)  (6-6-6-17 @ 457 MHz)  (5-5-5-14 @ 380 MHz)
  • SSD : 120 GB KINGSTON SA400S37120G ATA Device
  • Driver version installed : AMD Radeon Adrenalin software 19.8.2
  • Display : Full HD IPS LED LG - 24MP68VQ-P - connected with HDMI with 75hz and Freesync ON.


                        What have I done so far ? : 


  • I tried doing a fresh install of Windows and only installing the latest chipset drivers and graphics drivers from the start.  Still encounter the same issue.
  • New and old drivers.
  • Manual configuration in wattman.
  • Turned Freesync OFF in monitor / AMD settings.
  • Disabled HDCP Support.
  • Vertical Refresh ON/OFF.
  • Changed HDMI cables.
  • Updated Windows ; Drivers 
  • Changed rx 580 with my old r7 260x and 260x works perfectly without any problem.


I have no idea what to do so I came here.


The only things that are changed in Wattman are Power limit to 50% and Zero RPM to off.


EDIT : Here is a clip what it looks like https://gyazo.com/ebd19e6159b839dcb4e139d5a613b944  https://gyazo.com/ebd19e6159b839dcb4e139d5a613b944  From 0:02 to 0:05 it looks the best, check mountains frames, after that mouse starts lagging too if i dont click anywhere or move it faster around. Also i've noticed that watching clip frames doesnt have that much lag/ frame losing than watching it from my monitor.


EDIT 2 : 

  • I have updated bios today then i did a clean install with AMD Cleanup Utility. It did not changed anything, still encountering the same issue.
  • I noticed that my CPU base speed clock is set to 3.6 GHz (In task Manager > Performance) but when It loads up it goes up to 3.90 GHz and sometimes goes down to 3.40 GHz, should this be a problem ? I have never done OC, because im too scared to break something.





Sorry for my bad english.
