Polaris Bios Editing ( RX5xx / RX4xx ) - Page 110

post #1091 of 3318
Oh that's strange? I use Polaris Bios Editor and ATIWinFlash v274 and never had that issue on RX 460...?

To use DSEO, first install the driver and it will fail or whatever if thats what it doing for ya? As it installs without the need of dseo for me on RX 460. Install, reboot when the file is installed and this is key you cannot sign prior to installing in c:\windows\system32\drivers... If you install via Setup or Device Manager the atikmdag.sys file must have been unpacked from it's .SY_ form. Then (ENABLE TEST MODE) and (SIGN A SYSTEM FILE) C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ATIKMDAG.SYS (ENTER)... Done & Restart.

If I could get my BIOS Voltage to stick in Windows It would be so great. Right now I'm stuck on 65288 1150 millivolts @ max 1300mhz'ish.

Did you do that on win7 ?

I installed via setup after running DDU , but it turned out to be "partly installed", and, there is no atikmdag.sys in "c:\windows\system32\drivers" nor other files such as atikmpag.sys.

I also tried to update from 16.11.5 and then replace the modified atikmdag.sys. Though win7 booted up to desktop normally, the device manager showed that it's running an old version, and the Radeon Settings kept crashing when I clicked on certain options.

Follow asder00 istructions, replace the atikmpag.sys in System32 and SysWOW64 drivers and patch it.
This is the result:

Dseo is a pita if your path has spaces too.

Thank you asder00. .8 v 2d is easy good to 700 mhz approx I use 600... so it barely uplocks even with dxva!

I fixed the crappy power savings by making my custom states higher.
All of them tested on my xfx rs using OCCT, which is crazy on load... and 50% PT on 110watt bios:
Trust me, running any game is not a proper test. Would you trust your cpu overclock with winzip testing or use prime95/intelburnintest???

state, freq, milivolts
1)1025, 938
2)1150, 1000
3) 1195,1050
4) 1230, 1100
5) 1265, 1138
6) 1280,1163
7) 1300, 1175

So power efficiency on, its almost perfect. No more crappy stutter... and with 2d clock at 600 (stock 300 mem left it alone), the watts at idle does not change. These gpu's are directly related to volts, esp idle watts.

@robnitro Hi with your state 7 @ 1300 & 1175mv does that 1175mv stick upon startup without resetting Trixx or any software? Using PolarisBiosEditor? That's super funny haha about cpu overclock with winzip hahahaha Nice so setting minimum 2d clock to 600mhz @ 800mv? keeps lower power consumption under dxva? Thx

Yeah before I even modded the bios,
Wattman let me go to 1175 max volts. Try 1174 instead and see if it sticks. If not, no clue maybe based on my asic around 70%?

I use hwinfo64 to monitor the card, afterburner was good on 7950 but this card has less options than wattman.

I ended up putting it into Polaris bios editor along with the 2d clock 600, memory strap mod and it's good but first I had torture tested each state with occt.


Last driver no matter how much, the clocks sometimes jumped to 600/2000.
The annoying thing is that anytime the memory goes to full speed, the lowest volts is 1.00, even if the clock is 600. But if you can under volt the ram, I use 938mv, then it will do that as lowest for core. Example in an old game running 1020mhz at state 1, i can get actual 938 after setting ram to 938mv

Anyway with this latest driver it's much less jumpy to the full ram speed. I was running flash hw accel along with vlc dxva video playing and 600/300 solid, 25%gpu load and 11watts (idle is 9 at 600/300, just like normal 300/300)

I surrender......

It's AMD's fault. The Driver just cannot be installed, even though I flashed my RX470 back to RX470D, it just kept failing!!! No business of modifying. The 16.12.1 install manager showed a failed log "Package Manager The installation failed" while the 16.11.5 succeeded every time!!

The modifying is based on a correctly installed but stopped driver (error code 43), but I never see "error code 43" again after the first time I uninstalled it.

@robnitro Thanks rob, yeah I was tinkering with dxva power consumption and I appreciate your advice bud. It appears in AMD Settings (Video) (Custom) having smooth video and all options disabled reduces power consumption the most or default settings for that matter. Enabling smooth motion and what not doubles or triples power consumption under dxva. By using MPC HC x64 with dxva it idles through 1080p at around 5-8 watts.
*Side Note*
Tiny nano bump in clock & voltage new firestrike score. This card gains around 35% more fps with a 50% powerlimit increase in Trixx... Adjusting BIOS powerlimit % does nothing and Adjusting anything other than the clocks & fan speeds is pretty well pointless as they do nothing. I'm trying to get a bit more fps than this. I notice a massive fps decrease at 1900mhz or so memory so right around 1800-1890mhz is probably as high as gains are made. I tested 1390 to 1400mhz but the voltage increase saturates the vregs in heat at around 1225 to 1250mv. Needs more mods to achieve stability or a really nice water block... Not worth it though because of the software limitations. Cannot bios mod these with proper voltage & clocks for overclock bios.

New https://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-AMD-ATI-Pixel-Clock-Patcher released: https://www.monitortests.com/atikmdag-patcher-1.4.3.zip

This tool is used as temporary workaround (thanks @asder00) to fix ReLive driver bios check (only on polaris card).

The patcher last version (1.4.3) has been updated to completely support 16.12.1 ReLive drivers, this is not completely related bios mods but IMO since Pixel-Clock-Patcher is intended to be used with all patch-able limits found (older version didn't finds all limits on last drivers) if you used the old version you should clean your drivers and install them again with the updated patcher.

I used the advanced restart option 7 after copying the modded atikmdag.sys into the install folder, installed and display became so corrupt was unable to see properly the patcher app... Couldn't use it... Is it specific for RX 480 only? I'm running 460 and facing the same 16.12.1 issues as others have as well. Would appreciate advice. biggrin.gif

Here is what it looks like... it also maintains after restart... clearly not working on rx 460. 16.9.2 doesn't do it but 16.11.5 and 16.12.1 does.



*Update*
OS was Donedified biggrin.gif fixed : Still does not wanna work unless disabling driver enforcement every time...?
Also it does not boot up to increased voltage so still completely pointless adjusting 65288. Among the memory strap you guys set? I set 1625 strap to 1750, 1875, and 2000... Looser timings for higher clocks? Reduce Latency = Decrease Stability = Not Ideal...? Looser timings are needed for stability at higher memory clocks... I'm sure the 460 is way different than the 480. I massively dislike looking at GPUz on the 460... clock all day and still not coming close to 30 Giga Pixels and with the built in power limitation limiting fps by nearly half is excessively annoying. What is up with this BIOS mods doing nothing? What is causing it? Must reset Trixx every time and crank power limit to 50% to get any kind of reasonable fps. Firestrike by default hovers around 15 to 22fps, crank to 50% and it hovers around 25 to 40fps... This limit happens in games too... default game at 15 to 22fps... crank to 50%, game at 25 to 40fps @ 4k'ish.
