RX580 - Low Power Consumption and  Crashing Under Load

Discussion created by strykes on Apr 22, 2020

Hey i recently received a MSI RX580 OC ARMOR 8GB MK2 GPU and have been coming accross significant issues when putting the card under load.


To start off, under load or not the power consumption on radeon software seems to be stating 

Which seems unrealistic and I believe would be the root of my problems. I have tried replacing the Power supply three times with a 500W, 600W and now a 850W Cougar Power Supply.


The GPU doesnt seem to be overheating and Was just looking for tips and troubleshooting assistance


My CPU: i7 4770

Ram: 16gb DDR3

Radeon Software Version - 20.4.1(latest)


Software Version - 2020.0401.1512.27368
Driver Version -
Provider - Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
2D Driver Version -
Direct3D Version -
OpenGL Version - 26.20.11000.13587
AMD Audio Driver Version -
Vulkan Driver Version - 2.0.137
Vulkan API Version - 1.2.133
Windows Version - Windows 10 (64 bit)


I am thinking its possibly some sort of power draw issue as the consumption doesn't really go up with the utilization, i have attached a video of this.
