    Hi, any other Vega (64) owners have crashes with drivers? The last working one was 20.11.1, every driver since crashes in seconds after going ingame. Very annoying because i can't update my drivers since, as i mainly play Valhalla for now. But when i will want to play cyberpunk...
    I have vega64 strix@ stock, paired with 4770k. 20.11.1 Is rock stable and fluid, fortunately. (and of course i tried installing with and without ddu, cleaned cache...for every driver. Same crashes)
    Any other ones have the same problem?

    What type of crash, screen goes black or system freeze or game itself crashes.

    Sorry, precisely game freezes most of the time, but had 1-2 crashes with back to desktop and a few times freezed the système to... (sometimes had sounds but couldn't leave the game, alt-tab or task manager didn't Respond)

    Wasn't going to add anything else just let others respond but then realized you have an Asus Strix card.

    I don't have a Vega 64 but I do have a Asus Strix card, and with my specific model of card there is a wide spread problem of the screen going black when playing video games "aka" when the card is under load, Asus released a bios update trying to fix this issue which it didn't, just made it happen less.

    I managed to basically fix the problem by undervolting the upper state 7 voltage from it's default value of 1150mV to 1132mV, now you're card is going to have different voltages of course because it's a different card, and the issue I have with mine is probably not the same as yours, I am just throwing this out there as something you can try.

    Have you ever tried undervolting the card to see if makes it stable under load?

    Usually i always use it undervolted (auto undervolt or 1080mv P7@ 1630mhz), and never had such problem with or without undervolt. I just mentionned "@stock" to avoid stability problems while testing if the game works, but tried with autoUV to and no difference. My temps are good to and since the game stops after seconds, doesn't have time to heat up! :) I don't think it's voltage related because once i reinstall 20.11.1, i can play for hours without a problem. Seems like driver related for me...
    Anyway thank you very much for helping!!

    yeah its working confirmed myself. 5-7fps boost on 2700X. Usage goes up to all 16threads now.

    I have done it on my owen Asus Strix Vega 64, but it's for Asus Strix 5700 xt.

    A user said
    "Sebastjan Pustovrh
    VEGA56 and 64 had the same problem with the VRM mounting pressure. Had to fix dozens of cards back in 2017"

    I have already repasted my die with kryonaut, changed the pads (including vrm of course) with thermal grizzly, and swapped the fans with 2 noctua Nf - A12x15. It's cool and silent since. It has been a year. My temps are really good, including hotspot. Every game or bench is stable. As i said The problem is concerning AC:Valhalla with drivers after 20.11.1, and these one works perfectly even after +4h of gameplay. I just didn't test the latest drivers with other games, i only play Valhalla for now. I will try other games, but still it's clearly a software problem...

    All indicators are normal. Negligible point drop in Firestrike, maybe 30 pts.
    No explosions. No dead cards. No overheating. No detectable voltage spikes.
    Will edit with anything notable in CyberPunk.

    Edit: better performance, radeon overlay is all tiny though.

    Something I've noticed - you have to change the size over and over for some odd "reason". Just like with voltage resetting itself, AMD should fix this.

    Stable driver on my end.

    Previous drivers for some time had issues displaying madVR's seekbar in MPC-BE when changing from windowed to fullscreen mode. This driver fixed it finally.

    I've seen quite a few issues with Vega during the last 1,5 years on several different models, on my Asus AREZ sample the VRMs got very hot but as you've modded your card already that doesn't seem to be it. I got blackscreens / crashes to desktop there even with undervolting after a couple of months with that one.

    But I have also seen the issue you describe while playing Battlefield 1 during this summer, once under load the PC would hit the over current protection after 2 - 4 minutes of gameplay suddenly and 100% reproducible, I feared that the card (now a reference model) might have been the culprit. The temperatures were okay, I've modded mine with a Morpheus 2 and a good paste. But it turned out that it was my power supply having issues. First I thought it was a bad PCIe cable and also got a new one from the PSU manufacturer and connected two cables seperately for each 8-Pin connector on the card, but that wasn't the problem. With a different PSU model I haven't seen this issue again albeit I also can hear some crackling from the new PSU if the card comes under load or switches into idle. If that is normal for such load transitions, I have no idea.
