Crimson 16.7.3, RX 480 - Memory OC max @ 2050? - Page 4

post #31 of 44
Odd..
post #32 of 44
Ok, I played around a bit with memory overclocks and reached the following conclusion:

1) memory works fine up to a max of 2115 (for me)
2) anything above 2115 can cause memory errors,which can degrade performance significantly, though wont crash the driver

I would assume AMD figured the same, hence the 1050, which for me seems highly conservative, but even so, it might be that some cards can go higher than me, so taking away the option is still a very bad move on AMDs part.

"Fixed Issues
Max memory overclock available on Radeon RX 480 being too low in Radeon WattMan has been resolved."

Going to try this now.

It's funny all the fixes that they mentioned for RX 480 effect all GCN cards. Same goes with the problems.

OK, Wattman memory OC limit is definitely "fixed" in 16.8.1.
No only that, just got my highest ever Firestrike score ... 14204 (GPU score)
I know 14K is nothing for many 480 overclockers but I'm running stock GPU clock, stock voltage and stock cooling.
Just set memory to 2200 and powertune to +50%.

I want to buy your cards, I want to mess with Freesync, but you're making that really difficult for me

This is why I went to nvidia in my main rig, the 1070 is tough to beat. I even have an adaptive sync monitor, to be honest I dont see any differences without the freesync option.. I get 120+fps in bf4, starwars bf, and Archeage and 100+fps in gta5 at 2560x1440.


Amd drivers arent all that great, and honestly they could trash Wattman altogether and I wouldnt be upset, that is the most overbloated piece of overclocking tool i've ever seen..


The 480's are ok for the money, but they need some serious refinements with the software.

I think the drivers developers are confused, seems they mess more up than they fix, then they have to release a "hotfix" to fix what they screwed up in the first place... I guess they get paid by the hour.

To be fair 16.7.3 isn't broken for everyone, mine works pretty well with memory overclocking intact and GTAV runs much nicer than before.. only difference being the driver was installed onto a fresh install of windows 10 build 1511.

Wut? Stock core and just the memory oc? No way. Me gonna try 16.8.1 on my 290. My bad . . . it's for the 480s and I don't play F1.

Same here on my 290s but 16.7.2. I'll upgrade to .3 and i'm sure i won't have issue. lol. But we all play different games and not too similar setups. But thing is . . . even my AMD rig with a 7950 is running just fine.

BTW, I don't use DDU.

I should have clarified. Stock clock from the BIOS, but the BIOS is the XFX Black Edition, so GPU clock is actually 1328 MHz, which is an overclock over reference, but not a Wattman / software overclock. Then all I do is memory to 2200 and power to +50%.
