RX 480 8GB crashes

Hello. New here.

So my rig is:

Msi gaming x RX 480 8GB

Ryzen 5 2600 X

Corsair Vengeance pro 2x16 GB

Asus rog strix b450f gaming

Coolmax 1000watt psu

2k screen.

I'm playng Black Desert online right now and problems appeared in this game. When there was intense graphics(mass fights, boss fights with tons of people) my screen would just go black with message "Power save mode", all fans go to max rpm and thats it, nothing happened then. Only solution was to hard reset. I tried auto overcloacking gpu from AMD software, manuall settings, clean OS and driver installs. But it crashed on game and on stress tests (furmark, occt). I tried another psu (fully tested and working one) and appeared not to be my psu's fault. I tried manually setting +50% power from AMD software (saw suggestion on this forum) but nothing helps. What can I try? Is my GPU dying?
