Software for R9 285 bios edit - Page 30

post #291 of 1051
very nicee can i have that bios xDD my r9 285 is XFX and my 380 its a sapphire nitro 4gb with back plate
post #292 of 1051
Is anyone able to tell how much of Watts a r9 380 (or the other "same cards")run in idle mode,
and compare that to a bios with that always run on max speed?

GPUZ shows 6.2W with 300MHz core and 150MHz memory clock (0.9V). With ClockBlocker, which is same as having full speed bios I guess, it reports 19.4W with 985MHz core and 1450MHz memory clock (1.181V). All of this was done on a stock bios.

I meant a Non-Throttle one, i remember seeing one of those and the statement was that they always run on max speed (never downclock).

Your data there is the same as mine though:)

Why i'm asking is cause i have problems with my GPU when it goes from idle to max when overclocked with software (Bios OC is much more stable in that regard).

I would like others to do the "idle->max" stress testing i found out about though using ClockBlocker and OCCT, so if anyone wants please do tell.

EDIT:

Important notice i just made regarding this.
It seems that the Crimson drivers don't have this issue.
I did a few tests, and even with 15.11.1 and just installing the drivers from Crimson via Device Manager it's fine.
And switching to the 15.11.1 drivers immediately shows the issue.
Quite interesting.

I'm not sure how to make one, or where to find one for Sapphire 380. Forcing 985MHz to all 8 phases would work, but I guess it would interfere with dynamic voltage range and It wouldn't even boot properly. So I can't test it.

But i might be misunderstand what he means.

But i guess the watt should be what ClockBlocker achieves, which for me is about 20watt if i force it to highest clock.

mynm, I played around with what you think might be MPDL. I tried 50, 400, and 600. At 50 the card throttled and it wouldn't clock over 600 in a 3D benchmark so indeed it does something. However, at 400 and 600 I didn't see any gains, but I did notice that increasing the powerlimit to 20% did nothing so perhaps the limit is else where.

I copied that whole string of code from the Asus 380x to my R9 285 and my GPU-Z power draw didn't change. It stayed around 118W maximum. With the Asus 380x BIOS flashed I'm seeing 136W and I think this is simply from the core voltage increase. This is too much heat for my cooler already. Lately it's been below -20C outside so I can't have too much fun... I can't even open my glass door! tongue.gif


I have been doing tests with Furmak Preset:720 and 1100/1500mhz OC with +50mv. And I think these values could be TDP TDC and MPDL. 300W is impossible for my gpu because it has two 6 pin power connectors that supports up to 225W. I have crimson 16.1 drivers.

As you can see at this image with 02,96,00,9c,00,81,00,9c,00,9c,00,4c,04,f0,0a,9c,00,64 stock values. I have a max of 913/1500mhz, 1.069V, 103A and 104W.

If I change PL to + 45 I have, 1100/1500, 1.169V, 130.7A and 144W.

If I change those values to TDP-MPDL to 200, and TDC to 160, I have 1061/1500mhz, 1.138V, 122A and 133.8W.

If I change those values to TDP-MPDL to 225, and TDC to 190 and the first 96, like this: 02, e1,00,e1,00,ba,00,e1,00,e1,00,4c,04,f0,0a,e1,00,64. I have 1100/1500, 1.156v, 132A and 147W. More or less like + 45 PL.

If I don’t change de first 96 like this:02,96,00,e1,00,ba,00,e1,00,e1,00,4c,04,f0,0a,e1,00,64, I have 1100/1500, 1.131V, 135.9A and 148W. Less voltage than in the other cases

In games I have higher voltages, like 1.231V, changing or not those values, than at furmark. I don’t know if this is normal or is a problem due my PSU, because at furmark I have a min of 11.525V in the 12V line.

I have a Sapphire Dual BIOS R9-285 ITX O/C. I installed it in my Overclocked Dell Dimension E520 BTX computer(QX6800SLACP @ 3.72GHz.). I tweaked it a little to 1000 core, and scored P7644 in 3Dmark 11 (52%), 19890 in 3Dmark 06, 6820 Firestrike 47%.

I have one problem I need to solve before I can consider more O/C or making it an R9- 380. I can't open my BIOS "SETUP" page. When I try I get an error message "video mode 103 not supported by this graphics card". So it looks like my MB BIOS requires VESA mode 103, and my GPU BIOS doesn't provide it. I called Althonmicro .com about this and haven't heard back. Dell is useless as usual. I've never done any BIOS modding before, but I just ordered another identical card so I can be brave if I have to.So are there any tools to edit this, and what would I need to change?
Another option would be to adjust the Dell BIOS to another setting, but who knows how to do that?

But i guess the watt should be what ClockBlocker achieves, which for me is about 20watt if i force it to highest clock.

So I flashed in the TongaT bios, worked well, even tho I had some issues initially. It runs at stable 1 GHz and 1.2V while draining 22W at average.


This still didn't fix my issues, voltage goes down when I put on heavy load, such as Unigine Heaven and Valley or games like The Division.


As you can see, I get 1.044V minimum, which can cause instability when overclocking.

So, any idea how to fix this bs? I mean, now that I've tried different drivers and bios versions, the only option left is to go for HW volt mod, which would break the warranty. Also I can't just return the card for a new one, unless it's broken.

I sadly don't know how to solve the voltage.
From all i read the voltage is highly unstable when pressured.
If that's the hardware or driver though, i don't know, but it's probably the HW.

But wait, what kind of instability when overclocking do you have, when do you get the instability (as i guess that means crashes etc?).
