That should be.
Not sure, if I should try this hotfix. I had to revert back to 15.11.1 CCC, because of core clocks issue. It actually was not about fluctuating core clocks, but under 15.11. Crimson my clocks in games were slower than they are under 15.11.1 CCC. For example NBA 2K16 - under crimson 500-800 MHz > a lot of stuttering, under CCC 750-1050 MHz a little to no stuttering. Not sure, what's the problem :/, but sadly, I'm pretty sure it's not fixed in this hotfix.
Yep, same here. My card does 1170|1500 default and that's where I'm leaving it. OCing is screwy with these drivers.
I have a 390 and still seeing the issue so I'm not sure what AMD are playing at.
its only fixed for 390X.
I'm getting flickering in games (r9 290/windows 10 x64) and some weird...stuttering in windows when freesync is enabled.
Which games and FPS?
Be careful even with the hot fix, just ran into what could of been a disaster. I overclocked my 2 cards like before crimson. Started playing DA:I in eyefinity and had gpu-z running on a 4th screen. One of my cards VRM hit 105 degrees, and that card was sucking down almost 400 watts of power per gpu-z. I did not take the time to get a screen shot. My VDDC on the card that was sucking the juice and the VRM that hit 105 was somehow up to 3.89 volts as well.
MSI AB would not let me downclock, the controls had been transferred to AMD overdrive. I quickly got it downclocked in the global settings in the new Crimson UI.
Why did you enabled overdrive in the first place having AB to take care of the OC?
You were lucky to not end with a pair of "overfried" GPUs.
Are you sure that those readings were correct? How did your cards even survive that? The VDDC of my cards are 1,22V under load. So 3,89V is 200 procent higher than normal
No I had to accept and enable OD to undo the minor OC, as AB would not go lower then the settings I had already set.
Believe me I know I was lucky, but was being more careful then usual with the new crimson drivers. I tried OD years ago and never again, so I never enable it. It only took me a matter of seconds to start getting the temps and things down. Maybe it is a DA-I issue, crossfire, eyefinty thing as it was I did not have time to investigate.
Nor do I want to test it now and try to find out.
I can't be 100% sure, as seeing the 105 temp on one VRM panicked me. The reason I was running gpu-z was be extra careful during this transition.
My normal VDDC even with my minor OC in your range.
I had a hard time believing the stories, but I can see now with my near miss as my DA-I was still running fine, so if I had not been monitoring things I could of easily missed that.
105 is not abnormal for VRMS they are rated to about 125 or so. On my stock 290 they ran around that.
doesn't matter anyway as they are thermally protected and would throttle the card long before they blow.
105c is still hot for a 290x. Mine barely hit 65c gaming.
Mine barely hit 70 on either card so for me and my cards so yes this was abnormal.
I guess I should mention it was climbing I noticed it 103 and by the time I was able to get into OD, Accept OD etc it was at 105. Game had been closed as well.
you missed my point.
yes sounds like there is an issue if those readings are correct.
My point was your cards wont melt, 105 is within spec, and they are protected.
It's abnormal if it's caused by the drivers and not usually that hot
i doubt its caused by the drivers.
They sound like erroneous reading anyway.
power is a calculation (I X E), its not measured.
If your voltage is off way too high, so will be power.
This might be the cause.
