Polaris Bios Editing ( RX5xx / RX4xx ) - Page 210

post #2091 of 3402
I'm beginning to hate AMD's ****ty programming. They are as retarded as microsoft (game mode doesn't work half the time, idiots!).

I had an issue before that started happening again.
This could be an issue that came about with win10 creators update, which stupidly the game bar doesn't want to work, so I just disabled it. I use process hacker anyway.

If I change ANYTHING in crimson clock or voltage, my performance sucks, even though clocks are at 1285/2020. It's some weird bug. Last time I cleaned and reinstalled, thought it was ok UNTIL AGAIN THIS CRAP.
If I run oclmembench, the speed goes down to 90 GB, and games show 99% gpu use even when they normally use less than 50% on vsync! CPU use is fine and nothing in background running, tested with power efficiency off and on. ARGH
A reboot fixes it and keeps the settings.

So, now I have to set what I want, check the speed, and if it runs slow- reboot. THANK YOU AMD FOR YOUR CRAPTASTIC GARBAGE BLOATWARE SOFTWARE (1 GB of crap for a control panel and driver? g t f o morons)

Again, I did a clean DDU, clean amd, and reinstall, same issue. Its probably the blame of BOTH microsoft and AMD for their stupid software that blocks customizing. Pisses me off like when android doesn't let you STOP a program from running in the background. It's like the last 5 years of programming has jerk off mentality of not giving us freedom to customize and/or take control of OUR SYSTEMS.

Ok, had to flash back to 1400Mhz from 1420 Mhz lol While doing the benchmark, got like some green dot's, i think it's artifacts? xD My english is not that good so xD

Nice scores guys and btw Robnitro : none of these issues exist on Win7 & AMD Drivers work flawlessly... I know sometimes when we upgrade, we forget how the older stuff ran... Which is 99% better 99% of the time on Win7 .. fyi thumb.gif

If comes along Windows 11... It ought to be just plain "Prettier Windows 7 with DX12" done and done. Windows 7 best OS as of yet. Like with epic Taskbar animations and neat animations all over... and the option to disable... Windows 11 aka Beautiful Windows 7... wink.gif

Also during the OS Setup, define the amount of system memory installed so it'll run like a flippin champ even on extra low memory ie 4-8GB. Including the option to save 1 or 2GB by disabling the "CACHE SYSTEM" all together. Zero caching, the app uses what it uses and not to cache the entire amount of memory to prevent crashes. Not to mention a mastering of the x86 32 bit kernel to say goodbye to that 768MB of hardware reserved memory have all 4GB available or darn near it on 32 bit systems.

Sooo. I figured out what was wrong with my 1500Mhz overlclock. It was LLC setting from wattman. It somehow raised voltage over 1.35 for a moment so GPU would shut down itslef.
Here's my 1500Mhz@1.33v superposition score, guys biggrin.gif
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

upd. heaven 1515Mhz@1.33: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
3dmark 1500Mhz@1.33 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Interesting that 3dmark and superposition are more stressful for gpu than heaven.

I did the 8gb mod to my RX 480 and then modified the 16.12.1 drivers using asder00's atikmdag.sys file. It works, but is anyway to do this with newer AMD drivers? I've tried with the 17.4.2 and it wouldn't load the driver.

You have to use the atikmdag patcher in the first post in this thread after you install the drivers. Once patched, reboot and it will work

I did but Windows wouldn't load the driver. I'm using the same atikmdag.sys file for the 17.4.2 that I used for the 16.12.1 drivers.

I got my ref rx 480 to be Stable at 1400Mhz 1.160v ... My Asic is 80.6%...

There is anyone that can show me how much Voltage you got for higher than 1400Mhz just to get one idea?

I am stable at 1450mhz at 1150mv

here is my score at 1500mhz and 2200mhz at 1,23v

Tried this again with the 17.4.2 driver and got an error when installation finished. Ran the patcher and says BIOS Signature Check not found. These things didn't happen with the 16.12.1 driver. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Maybe I'm putting the atikmdag.sys in the wrong location? This is where I'm putting it.
