I recently installed a new Asus ROG Strix RX 5700 XT into my system, I used a GTX 1060 before this.
Other components follows;
Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming
16 GB (2x8GB) Corsair Vengeance RGB running @ 3000 Mhz
AMD Ryzen 2600X
Samsung 850 Evo SSD
Corsair RM 650 (80+ Gold) PSU with great stability on the power lines.
I'm also using drivers directly from AMD, such as chipset.
1x 1080p @ 60 hz
1x 4K @ 60 Hz
CPU Userbenchmark report if of value;
The problem I'm experiencing occurs while gaming, mainly Apex as that is the only game I play at the moment.
A re-install of the drivers seem to work, for a while.
The error occurs sometimes after alt-tabbing, or sometimes at game launch.
I have V-sync turned on for a smooth experience, giving me a steady 60 FPS which fits my 60 Hz display.
Problem is, sometimes as stated above. The V-sync is not working, my FPS goes up to 200fps+. Despite this, the game is choppy and ready for a crash at any time.
If I turn off the v sync in game, the game runs a little smoother if it doesn't immediately crash my system with a black-screen. When this happens, there's no way to turn the computer off without cutting the power.
After boot-up, I have to manually launch the Readon settings software which tells me that "WattMan profile has been reset due to an unexpected error".
Now, I haven't touched the wattman settings. I did try to increase the "Power limit" as suggested in another thread from 0% to 50%. This did nothing as it seems.
According to the GPU status overaly (ctrl+shift+O), the temp (50C), power and util of the card is not high at all when this happens.
I greatly appreciate any help and input regarding this matter!
