Good stuff. I got two of these. Haven’t had the time to really tune them, but plenty of gaming done.

I also had same issue with AIO VBIOS flashed to AIR RX VEGA 64. Even made a custom PP for use with AIO VBIOS, with same settings as AIR PP mod. I'd have overshoot at some point, leading to crash. At the time I did not feel like investing time to see if another table within AIO VBIOS differs to AIR which maybe responsible for this overshoot.
Sad to hear there's no info on how to stop this behavior.

Should help a bit, also try to give little less V for P7 1.150v ?
This will prevent AI to boost over the limit.

Also i have found than sometimes is better to OC HBM2 more and leave GPU clock lower
1732MHz with 1100-1135MHz HBM2 -> It give good FPS for sure.
Im not using my Vega XTX with 120-144Hz monitor so, im playing my games mostly on 1650-1700MHz with 1150HBM2 and it's OK for FreeSync 70-75Hz, no drops occured.
Now Playing Destiny 2 (Yes it's free until Nov.18 and you can have it for free, no it's not free weekend it's FREE !) and 1700/1175HBm2 rocks that game NP.
Looks like I have more tweaking to do. My card wont run 1740 at 1.15v though, wish it did.

Hey guys,
I am looking for a PowerPlay for rx vega 56, not 64. There are a lot of them around for 64, but it's harder to find one for 56. I would greatly appreciate if someone shared it. It would save me a lot of time. Thank you 😃

According to the test of this forum, after brushing this BIOS file

1. Successfully transformed VEGA 64 into FE
2. Specviewperf 13 can run the test smoothly
3. P1~P5 voltage options can be adjusted
4. The BIOS of GOP can be updated normally.

Since I don't have a VEGA display card, I hope everyone can help with the test.

Is that reversible? An FE to a Vega64 but using the full HBM2 of the FE....

@jordanpchome thanks looking into this.

It should be...but people are gonna have to look into this. I do not have a FE but just a regular Powercolor Red Devil Vega 64

/edit What I am seeing is they are using the Radeon Pro WX 8100 and really should be using the Radeon Pro WX 9100 bios for this...but I guess it is a start. Okay they are flashing Vega 56 to FE.

As mtrai states I envisage no issue going between RX VEGA 64 / FE 8G VBIOS.


Intriguing share .


Will run SPECviewperf13 again now, should I try Professional driver mode or game mode?

For some reason, my RX Vega 64 is somehow heavily throttling at 65-70C even though I am watercooling it with a EK copper WB. It ignores the Wattman temperature offsets for some reason... What can I do?

Did you check just GPU core T or all of them? If you are getting 65°C on GPU then something is wrong:

R7 1700x @3,95
Geil EVO x 16gb ddr4 3200
Asus Prime x370 pro
Vega 64
500GB Samsung 970 pro
Corsair RM1000i
EKWB watercooling (cpu+gpu)
