The result is that I just lost time. We all know the problems with the stock settings, the two memory states, the ram that bugs with 2 monitors, we have to patch the drivers because they're stupid AND NOW I'm locked with a voltage of 1150mv, no matter what. I was using 1300mhz@1075mv.
WHATEVER, amd. Okay.
It was perfect, I was using the uber timings and 2100mhz for the memory and the results were pretty good, I was satisfied. But it was only for the benchmarks, I guess. Testing, testing and testing, the card was perfect, no memory errors etc.
Long story short : I only used benchmarks on my card in the last weeks because I have no time to play. I didn't actually play games, I only run Dark Souls 3 every once in a while.
I've been struggling to get 60fps in this game, but I was pretty sure it was game's fault, as lowering details and resolution would always get me 50-55fps. I was, okay, it's probably game's fault. Well, guess what, it's not. With stock bios runs PERFECTLY.
The frame rate drop was caused by a game's memory leak. In fact, I couldn't play it without using the page file as a virtual ram, because the game wouldn't start with "just" 8gbs of ram. AND I THOUGHT IT WAS A BUG OF THE GAME. It makes sense that I lose fps because the page file is way slower than the RAM.
I just couldn't find any info about this problem anywhere.
So I spent more than 60 hours playing @ 50-55fps accross the months with that utterly disturbing micro-stuttering with more than capable hardware for the game.
So, this was the last drop, AMD. You won, I'm going back to stock bios. That's what you wanted us to do since you added the signature check.
I'll just give it the last chance when I'll find a suitable RX580 4gb bios so that I should work like a "stock" bios.
