Full system specs:

Ryzen 5 3600


16GB DDR4 3000mhz ram

Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700xt

Corsair RM750x PSU

Driver version: 20.1.1


Note: I have not changed any settings in wattman. And all that happens when playing games.


At first my gpu uses 180-190W and clocks around 1800mhz in Silent Bios and in Performance Bios 210-220W and clocks around 1900mhz. Wich is completely normal. But after a while it starts to act weird. Power usage starts to fluctuate from 150W all the way up to 270W and clocks jump from 1700mhz up to 2100mhz. Does not matter what Bios setting im using at the time and when it starts act weird bios switch stops working alltogether.


I dont know what triggers this issue, seems to be random.

Only way to get things back to normal is do reinstall drivers using DDU. But this aint permanent fix as it starts to act weird again.


Some people wouldnt find it as a issue since free performance right?  but since i have pretty silent build and using Silent Bios is pretty much a must for me because of the fan noise and lower temperature.


Does anyone have counter this issue before? or know how to fix it? Would be great help.


PS. Sorry about my poor writing since english aint my first language. I hope you understand.
