Polaris Bios Editing ( RX5xx / RX4xx ) - Page 257

post #2561 of 3402
My question is can we run older drivers on rx 580? I can't play fallout 4 on the latest drivers...

It will work with the patched drivers only?))

580 only works on this latest driver, it just got added.

I used generalemon's bios but now I use the red dragon bios from the tpu unverified section because my card is not reference and doesn't work as well with that msi bios he uses

I've been fiddling around with editing my card's BIOS since I bought it.

I spent hours and hours in fine tuning my bios and testing, testing and testing.

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.

I'm sorry to be "That Guy" but well, someone has to. You really shouldn't be expecting any modern game to work with a computer that only has 8GB total system ram, especially if you're running windows 10 (which uses the most system ram out of any windows OS to date). That's more than likely your core problem more than any issue you may possibly encounter with the video card. 12 GB system ram should be the bare minimum for any modern gaming computer in 2017, and more towards 16 GB as "Ideal".

Can I mess with the timings on this card? It's a Sapphire RX480 Nitro (non+) 4GB with Elpida memory (W4032BABG-70-F).
Bandwith in OclMemBench seems really low compared to what some of you guys are seeing. Overclocking the memory to 1800MHz makes it go even lower, so I'm guessing it has something to do with timings, but I can't modify them in PolarisBiosEditor.

With my evga hybrid mod I was able to sustain a whole day continuos run of 1400/2250 left Heaven on a continuous loop.

Avg 40-42c on core and 64-66 vrms around 1.112mV

The only thing I bumped was Powerlimit to +25.
Left ref fan on auto for vrm/mem cooling.

Pretty nice behavior, specially on the vrm temps with stock fan speed.

Try this. 200-2000Mhz Micron MT51J256M32HF straps copy-pasted in the Pulse Bios. No patch needed

Thanks man, I can read the timings now smile.gif
I have 2 of each frequency though, probably because my bios supports both Hynix and Elpida memory. Timings are listed by the same order as VRAM, right? Elpida timings first, followed by Hynix timings?
This card doesn't have dual bios, so I'm a bit cautious.

@daevy3k

Try these apps to reduce memory consumption and usage. Not to mention to disable "Superfetch" service as it'll save you up to 1GB in game. May be slower desktop but gaming is what matters... Typical loading that is won't be storing frequent used apps in ram so more is free for games.

Try these apps out not to mention also tuning "Memory Management' in the registry... hkey local machine, system, currentcontrolset, control, session manager, memory management... set Superfetch and Prefetch to 0... Also set Disable Paging Executive to 1... must restart to take effect... could save another couple gigs of ram for gaming.
