Why does the performance tab show 850W power consumption?

Hi!

I recently bought a Sapphire Pulse RX 5600 XT  and it seems to be a really nice card - quite a step up from the RX480 I had before. I've had the odd little problem with it, but have been able to work around those, and I'm sure most of these will be ironed out over time.

The only thing that's bugging me is that the Performance tab of the 20.1.3 driver shows my card drawing 850W of power with a junction temperature of 900C, which is ridiculous. Is there a problem with the sensors, or is it the driver?
