I've been rolling back to older drivers and when I got to the 18.12.1.1 drivers the fans started working correctly and temperatures dropped 10-15C. Vulkan works great too!



An oddity: Every time I uninstalled a driver I got that "driver stuck in thread" and a blue screen. This crashed the puter and I had to repeat the process along with scans until the old drivers were completely cleaned out. I also installed only the drivers and left the sound drivers and Radeon software out. Disabling "high definition audio bus" in device manager also helped.



tl;dr: No more 2019 drivers for me.

I've been trying out 1050 across p6, 7, and the HBM. Seems to work out a little better than 1100.

All of this seems like a complete waste of time because the GPU responds so horribly to overclocking. The best I've gotten so far, only a couple hours of tweaking in all, is an 12% increase in Superposition at 332 watts. This is pretty much the same as I read other people were finding so I expected it.

Ive left mine alone and on water with the factory bios i hit 1600+ no problem, consumes about 220-225w, all ive done is get memory to 1050 and left it alone. AMD cards have always seemed to be highly clocked from the factory so I've honestly not bothered on either my r9 390 or v64 as far as core clocks go.

How did you test your card?

Set it to 1050 then just ran a game i know uses a lot of VRAM, Frostpunk, didn't see any artifacts. I get about 1550-1640 depending on the game and that's on stock settings. Uncapped (i have freesync) playing Siege i hit about 222w.

That's exactly why I was asking. You need to use a benchmark to establish performance changes from one setting to another. Running around in a game isn't going to give you the same repeatable sequence of renders time and time again and that's what you need if you want some kind of basis for comparison. All of my numbers are from running superposition on 1080 extreme. I made a spreadsheet to keep track of scores and settings and it's really helped to see the effect of each change.

I spent nearly my entire day poking around at my reference vega64.

Here's what I think I'm going to settle with.

average boost is around 1540mhz with gpuz reported voltage of 950mv. Edit: caught heaven in one of those super random dips. Heaven stays around 1540-1560mhz.

Also just a GPUz sensor shot from about an hour of RE2.

It does if you run the same scenario over and over and nothing changes but the settings haha. I'd run synthetic benchmarks but i find them so unreliable it's pointless, could jump points and score by just restarting your pc, not very accurate if you ask me. I'll usually run a couple in game benchmarks, take the average then do it again after i changed settings.

OCN, I am about to purchase Vega 64 today 2/5/19 at Microcenter. I will be getting the reference card as I plan on watercooling. My choices are the MSI Air Boost Overclocked or PowerColor. Seeing which one to grab and hoping OCN members have experience with these two cards. Any input or suggestions greatly appreciated.
