I recently purchased an RX 7900 XT reference directly from the AMD shop.
Shipping was super fast, I receive the GPU and install it in my PC.
Clean driver installation.
The GPU makes a crazy noise, especially when squeezed with games like GoW, Cyberpunk 2077, RDR2.
I can understand some coil whine, however, it sounds like having a "screaming pig" inside the case.
For 1000€ card I think it is really a serious defect and especially I find it absurd to do undervolts or similar things that limit the performance in order to reduce the noise.
I ask if you have also experienced this problem or is it a defective part. At the moment I have made the return because playing like this is really impossible.
I anticipate that I have already tried everything that can be tried, I have a case with a major airflow, two separate cables for power etc.
I had 7900 XT, it made a slight piggy noise while playing CSGO, but only slight, however i sold it two weeks ago and got 3080 ti 12gb. To be honest the 7900 XT delivered better quality and less tearing. But i am now hearing the same piggy noise from the 3080 TI, but imagine that i dont hear it from the GPU but from my speakers
Bottom line: nowadays hardware is total crap, not worth the money!!!
For example playing Cyberpuk 2077 I do 70-80 fps in average RT. There the noise is really high.
If I play Sekiro or Elden Ring then yes you stay on 60 fps and it's quiet.
RDR2 I play on 140 fps and it's a mess there.
All the games are at 2k resolution.
