MSI afterburner and AMD gaming evolved can record videos

Not sure why my video turned out to be so choppy, but you can still see the clock jumps and at the top right corner you can see the FPS of the benchmark so you know that my computer wasn't actually that choppy.

I ordered a new PSU anyways, I'll wait for it to get here, if those voltage jumps continue with it, then I will replace the card.

Can you run Valley again and post a screen shot of your settings for me? Your AB settings and also the Valley settings as well. I have one Nvidia card that does this and its a BIOS issue. I've not had issue with AMD cards doing it though so far. But it could be the resolution is too low to keep the clock up high enough. Have you tried Heaven? Does it to the same thing on Heaven? In gaming too?

Edit: Also open up an isntance of GPU-Z and open the sensors tab. Lets see what the VRM's are running at too.

This is me running the Benchmark for about 10 minutes



1600x900 at Ultra Settings 4x AA. But it doesn't matter if I run it on ALL low or max everything out (res/aa) it still does this. Also it does this in games as well. For example, I've been putting off playing XCOM 2 until I got this card, and now playing it is impossible, every single time that it jumps between view from above to do an animation like shooting from third/first person, the core drops to ~500-600 and then jumps to around 900-1000 and that makes the game stutter like crazy because the fps goes down from 80-90 to 25-35 and it literally makes it feel like every time I do anything that requires one of those animations the game just stutters to hell and back.

The sad thing is, this happens on matter what settings I set it to. For example, I have a computer that is running an old 7950 OCed, and the game on all medium/high settings on that computer runs smooth as butter, the fps does drop, but because the core always stays at max, the drop in fps in the change of animation is like from 60-70 to like 50-60. Which is unnoticeable. If i run the game on THOSE exact same settings on my 390x, and i mean literally the exact same settings copied, the game will run smooth at round 90-110 FPS, but in the change of animation when the core drops down the FPS will dip in to the low 30s and cause the game to feel like its stuttering like crazy. So the fact that a 7950 only dips down in to 50-60 range and my 390x dips in to low 30s sometimes 20s doesn't make sense to me. All because the core drops.

I've observed this in my 4 games that I have installed currently, XCOM 2, Witcher 3, CSGO, Rainbow Six Siege. All of those games feel smoother on my 7950 than on my 390x mainly due to drops in core which cause the game to go to very low fps and feel like stutter. The max FPS is of course much higher on the 390x but the actual gameplay feels smoother on my 7950.

I think the cards BIOS is corrupt. I've seen this before on an NVidia card. Reflash it or return it if you can. I'd prob just return the thing if doing so is easy. If its gonna be a pain to return, then try flashing, just make sure to back up your existing BIOS before doing so. And don't use WinFlash use AMDflash.exe. If you need help doing this let me know I'll point you to the right thread that makes is pretty easy to do.

I'll just return it as I ordered it from Amazon and the return process is fairly easy with them.

Its been a bit but doesn't afterburner have a logging function?
Is it possible for you to try the card in another PC?

EDIT:NVM! DISREGARD! for some reason browser did not load rest of the thread, or I just did not see it.

Let me know how you make out with the new card. I have this exact same issue with a sapphire 390X nitro. It varies between games or benchmarks, for example Firestrike 1080p will keep the clocks right up near 1080 (stock clocks), but will vary between 1000-1080. Furmark/Kombustor/OCCT will make it sit around 1050 core, with regular drops to 300 core and intermittent drops to around 800 core. All of the drops are accompanied by voltage drops in the GPU voltage graph, usually from 1.055v down to 1.011v. In some games, like Fallout 4, the GPU runs regularly around 400 core to 800 core, never even reaching above 900 core. I also CANNOT reduce the core voltage to +0 in MSI Afterburner, no matter what I do as soon as I hit apply it kicks back up to +19mV, as if the bios was set to stay there. I found that increasing the Power Limit to +30% or higher reduces the FREQUENCY and INTENSITY of the drops, but does not resolve them. This kind of indicates to me that perhaps Sapphire is selling badly binned chips, and trying to crank them up via BIOS, and simply letting them throttle out of the box and hoping that no one notices. But, I'm hoping that that's not the case, and we're simply having driver issues. Also if it matters, GPU-Z shows my ASIC quality at 77.85%, so this should be a darn efficient card!

Can anyone else with a Sapphire 390x run Kombustor/Furmark/OCCT and show the core/mem/usage/voltage graphs from MSI Afterburner to see if this is normal for everyone's cards? Also, what voltage does MSI afterburner show for your cards at STOCK levels? How about folks with any other brand 390X's? Would anyone with another brand card (MSI, ASUS etc) be kind enough to post some graphs and voltage measurements as well?
