ASIC quality of 55.7% here.. My card is quite bad at overclocking too. Seems that ASIC quality has something to do with Overclockabilty...
1060 MHz on Stock Voltage (1.25V effective 1.215V under load) with Stock Fan Profile.. More is just not possible..


And.. It has some weird Monitor Flickering under Displayport, which goes away when I plug HDMI into the Card and the exact same Monitor...

I'm limited to a 144Hz DVI panel, and I do not notice any flickering. Have you updated your bios to the latest? I is supposed to increase stability etc (according to asus)... I have also noticed that they fiddled with the power and temperature targets on this new bios.

playing around with undervolting it. hit and miss. ashes of the singularity in particular can hard crash the system with undervolt. Other games seem to work with around -54mv . Haven't tried OC yet.

worried about the lack of dual bios. With all the fancy features they put on the board, one would think they could at least do dual bios. Seems important...


Well maybe it was a safety measure against unlocking... There are very few cases of Fury Strix not unlocking. I would say yours looks good for a full unlock, however it is up to you do decide what to do!

But dont quote me on that biggrin.gif

this is my thinking. was on iGPU before getting this strix. But doing some research on whether that's how it is.

I mean its not just some small little flicker..
Here is a Video, just take a look..
The BIOS I have is the latest available.. Which is still already 3 years old..
The Flicker is also there when I have no drivers installed, and when I am at the Boot screen (where you see the ASUS logo)

I remember this being an issue in the past around ATI Cypress (HD5870; 5850 and 5970) era when you had 120hz set for the desktop. In those days it happened because the low power clock was set too low... Maybe you can edit your cards bios to set the lowest power state to be a little bit higher?

If it would be the low power clock being too low, shouldnt the monitor stop flickering when it enters 3D mode and goes up with its clocks?
Becaus that is not the case.. frown.gif

Its super confusing..

What you will note is unlockable card is:-

HW locks: 8 (R/W)

and not unlockable is:-

HW locks: 8 (R/O)

(R/W) denotes the hardware lock is in "Read/Write" state, so flashing a "unlock" ROM adjust SP count.

(R/O) denotes the hardware lock is in "Read Only" state, so flashing a "unlock" ROM does not adjust SP count as the hardware lock can not be overwritten.

@Richi3

I think you have a Fiji card exhibiting "display corruption", quite few owners have reported it on AMD community site (link to thread). Members have had varying success with different "fixes" but no real fix. Members have varying severity of issue as well. Some have RMA'd cards a few times and still had issue, many have tried different cables, connections, drivers, roms, etc. Early on in the thread AMD was responding but no longer. They have had the RMA'd cards back to themselves and not been able to replicate issue. This issue exists on reference and custom PCB Fiji cards.

Managed to unlock 4096 shaders. But got some display corruption. I guess there was a reason they had to make it regular fury. Settled on 60CUs now and ran firestrike ultra with no issues. Graphics score was 3703. 3840 shaders is ok. Gonna have to try undervolting some as temps went up and probably power consumption as well.

Current reading from CUinfo
Code:
Adapters detected: 1
Card #1 PCI ID: 1002:7300 - 1043:049E
DevID [7300] Rev [CB] (0), memory config: 0x00000000 (unused)
Fiji-class chip with 16 compute units per Shader Engine
SE1 hw/sw: 00010000 / 00000000 [...............x]
SE2 hw/sw: 00010000 / 00000000 [...............x]
SE3 hw/sw: 00010000 / 00000000 [...............x]
SE4 hw/sw: 00010000 / 00000000 [...............x]
60 of 64 CUs are active. HW locks: 4 (R/W) / SW locks: 0 (R/W).
4 CU's are disabled by HW lock, override is possible at your own risk.

Display corruption was in the form of light blue flashing squares.

What a bummer...
So no one knows what it is, why its there, and how to fix it.. -_-
And even RMAing might not fix it..
My screen glitching out is constant though, and without any discoloration on screen..

@semitope
Nice to hear that it worked!
Not quite Fury X but even closer now biggrin.gif

Try raising the voltage -- those shaders might just need more to work properly.

As stupid as I may sound, why is it that R/O hardware lock can't be overwritten?
