I came here for WattMan but nope, rejected. mad.gif

What's the problem with it?? Works fine on my 1080p Sony TV & R9 390@ 3200X1800. Something "funny" set in options? (some other scaling options interfering?).

Sucks you don't get Wattman unless you have RX 4xx. Overdrive seems pointless (needs fan control overhauled) but rather than do this for EVERYONE they make it a "feature" for the new stuff. If i could set a manual fan curve i would drop Afterburner as that's all i use it for.

Thanx.

I flashed my bios with change Fan curve and overclock so I don't have to deal with Afterburner

They said that they think to support older generations too. But not 100% sure if they will do it

Here I was hoping this driver would help with my 380X....

But nope :/

1. Wattmann is 480 only... meaning I need to stick with Sapphire Trixx to prevent card suicide (the single time I forgot to launch Trixx before launching Shadow of Mordor, left my room smelly for quite some time, as the ****ty default fan profile made the temp skyrocket, create lots of coil whine, and release that PCB varnish smell).

2. They put as "known issue" that the 480 throttles in a game... I can guess that my issues of 380X throttling will be even less fixed.

3. No mention to fixing some bugs of the CCCSlim thinking my GPU is a FirePro and asking me to disable Framelock/Genlock

I bought the 380X recently, the PC isn't even fully assembled (currently it is in a test-bench, no chassis yet), this is my first AMD card, and I am very, very disappointed with it.

Depending on how the prices go, I think I will sell the 380X and buy a 970. (and have a profit in the process! here in Brazil nVidia is doing their best to beat the crap out of AMD prices, right now the 970 is 60 USD cheaper than the 480, and 380X is very rare to find one in stock in first place).

Why does your 380X card throttle may I ask?

Temps?

Power limit?

Want the new Wattman? Just buy a new card! lol

PROBABLY, because of power limit.

I am waiting on a new PSU to test this theory (one that has different voltage regulation, to be sure it isn't VDROP protection).

I never saw the 380X throttling due to temps, in fact its behaviour regarding temps is bat**** retarded (it will just happily keep increasing temps without increasing fan speed or throttling until I am ****less scared with the crazy PCB varnish smell and coil whine, thankfully using Sapphire Trixx to setup a decent fan profile fixes it, even "power virus" tests make the temps top at 60C with fans at 60%).

Gigabyte 380X models were confirmed to have power limit problems, they would stutter like crazy if you used stock bios, because the stock bios didn't had enough limit to hit the stock clock even at low usage.

With my Sapphire 380X, setting the power limit to +20% fixes the stuttetering for most part, but not 100%.

leaving power limit on 0% make the card sometimes be unusable, with Crimson 16.4 it was just ridiculous, GTAV would look like a slideshow and the GPU would run at 600mhz.

With 16.6.1, GTAV runs on average at 920mhz with power limit 0%, and runs at 1040mhz (the advertised clock from Sapphire) at power limit 20%, with the occasional stutter in game (and in out of the game, looking at graphs, it is still throttling frequently, but stay at 1040mhz for most part).

Also I posted in other thread about this, but reviewers discovered during the MSI and Asus 1080 "review-only BIOS" that the review-only BIOS had modded power limit.

I suspect this might have happened on AMD GPUs too, because it would be hard to detect (how a reviewer would discover the power limit is higher, specially when the control panel just display percentages, and not raw values?)

What 380x do you have? I have a 380x Nitro and I get no throttling in games at all.

Tom's didn't have much luck with that card either.

If you're wondering why we don't give overclocking its own detailed chapter, take a look at the graph at the beginning of this page. Even a moderate overclock to 1100MHz results in so much throttling that the frame times suffer. The average frame rate inches up a bit, true. But more frequent stuttering and the exploding power consumption make overclocking this card beyond its factory setting pointless.
