[BIOS Mod] RX480 -> RX580 Conversions + How-to RX470/RX480 -> RX570/RX580 - Page 38

Try another HDMI, hopefully it works.

I can't fix the ports because of lack of documentation. i cannot trial and error, because i don't have a card with ports beyond 3x DP and 1x HDMI. And my reference card has a backplate and no switch, so recovering is also a problem.

So, the DVI and extra HDMI might not work correctly. i believe the second HDMI is recognized as DVI. If u can't find a workaround, i can only recommend the BIOS from post#2. This is the modded original 480 BIOS, the ports should work fine with this one.

i'm running the original bios port now, it works,
i will try with the other HDMI port to see if that's work with the first bios and report back ( in case it works ). thanks for quick reply

edit1: OK, so after a reflash and a reboot, freesync now work on the nitro480-580.1.0010.rom on both HDMI in ports. :| i will also do a clean driver install to make sure all it's ok, ( i was using the second HDMI in port the first time, now i'm on the first port, the one farther away from the display port )

edit2: this time around it;s working, at least for first hdmi port smile.gif going to live it be. thank you for help

@hellm

I might found a typo in Sub ID in your xfx conversion bios file.

It doesn't flash on my xfx 480 card because of it. I haven't tried to change it, because I'd rather ask the OP it self whether this is a simple error.

Spikes are back, found why so edited the post.

Firefox QUANTUM is doing it. Tested other browsers on youtube for same videos, same quality. Chrome and Basilsk (firefox fork) doesn't. So I either turn of FF HW accel or switch browsers.
But this still doesn't change the fact that this MSI RX480 is broken.

Can you guys test youtube with FF quantum running HWinfo with 100-200ms interval?

FF Quantum on youtube keeps GPU at state 6-7 and switches constantly makes my gpu voltage spike crazy like 1.375v crazy. Been running this way for a while, I really hate this stupid thing.

Edit:
Apperantly FF Quantum adds AMD VP9, so this is why. It is a good thing for a normal GPU in a normal day.
Well not soo much for mine.
You can check, right click on video and go to "stats for nerds" and you'll see it says VP9.
and check if you'll have any spike, just play a video for 5 mins.

Everything is fine, i changed it from 9480 to 9580. More a cosmetical thing.
Just read the flash how-to, "-fs" should do the trick.

I don't update firefox before noscript is compatible. at least.
So far i don't have any spikes on my ref card, i still use gpu-z with 0,1sec update rate. Will check again after i updated to ff 57.

You have never had the spikes so this is probably a brand, or even batch spesific. I have seen only couple others with voltage spikes.
This gpu is just bad.
RMA will not acknowledge it. "Does it work Joe?", "Yes, I plugged it in and it run for 30 seconds", "Good, Send it back!"
I really beleive this is how they work, because they almost drive me insane everytime.

I have disabled VP9 for youtube and for now youtube is the only actual thing that uses VP9. I'll probably have to fiddle with it again in future.
I ran it this way for 2+ weeks and this time spikes were always too high, all in 1.35v+ range.

I am slowly going back to reference 1288mhz clock speed. This gpu was able to hit 1370mhz on 1096mv.
It hasn't ben a year and now I am hitting 1350mhz @ 1125mv..

It all is just bitter funny to me now smile.gif At least it works is my new motto.

Nice catch, I'll test it out tonight, even though I don't use Firefox as my main browser anymore (prefer an older fork of it), I still have it installed.

Interesting, thanks for the response. I'll try out later today.

I don't know, it's just a short test, but it only spiked once, when I launched the first video. GPU-Z didn't pick it up, HWInfo did. 1.195V isn't too bad.

1.195 is fine, mine goes to 1.375. It doesn't always happen one of a sudden, sometimes takes a while but mine always does.
you can make sure if vp9 is on or off by right clicking video and going into "stats for nerds" but from your p-state and memory clock also says VP9 is running. biggrin.gif

and you can disable it in either firefox about:config but that might cause problems in future, some sites might only have vp9.
Instead you can get a plugin "H264ify" was its name as far as I remember, this only works on youtube.
