    Is my Vega 64 dying or what? Does this thing happen to you too? I thought it was because of bad soft power table but it also did this as soon i installed new drivers.

    what happens everytime i boot my computer (fresh driver install, nothing modified, maybe i did a bad bios flash a while ago?)

    P.S i have absolutely no problem in playing games, just a bit concerned about this behaviour. Also my HBM temp sometimes reached 75c, i've heard it gets unstable > 65c but it should only thermal throttle at 80c right?

    NP at all, it is Windows 1903 Issue.

    For me Problem is no more:

    I've installed new WHQL -> 19.6.2-june24
    And everything went smooth, no redish/pink or such screens.

    To be noted, that i have Loaded ICC profile for my monitor into Windows.
    Im also using CRU, all Fine.

    So to solve this, i needed to dig deeper into Monitor Specs, and input Valid ranges into CRU
    + go into (right click on desktop) Display Settings once after restart/boot, Windows will upload good Values for monit. ranges.
    If You have Color Temp. at 6500K leave it at default.

    In Tests (Benchmark sites etc.)
    Nv is like -> Plug & Play this what You get.
    Vega is like -> Not UV, Throthing and under performing much ;) (please add 7-15% to all tests)

    Now the Truth (ATI in our hands):
    Vega 64 - 2070 Level of performance
    Vega XTX LC - Almost 1080Ti level of performance
    Vega VII - Between 2080Ti & 2080 AIB Level of performance.

    what is this crap engine, its like Unreal or something. Every game using crap Nvidia librarys just ruins fps on all cards

    Just read my Tweaks for UE, how to baypass $hity performance.
    All my UE3/4 Games performs better than benchmark.

    And afterall UE is not s*ity that much thanks to this :p (Long live 4 the Tweakers/Moders Scene)

    I am interested into this Mr.Onna. Every UE 4 is dog$ht on AMD. Where did you post this D: you mean x8 tesselation?

    So I replaced the TIM on my Vega 64 GPU and replaced the thermal pads for ones with better coverage.

    Now during Time Spy Extreme stress testing at 1668/1100MHz my GPU temp goes up to 71 degrees, HBM at 76, and the VRMs reach 90 degrees. The latter still seems a bit high, though they went up to nearly 100 degrees before.
    The Hotspot temperature went down from 107 degrees to 90, so that's something at least.
    All with about 80% fan speed, and +50% Power. GPU clocks remained at 1550 approximately.

    I also flashed my BIOS to the Asus Vega 64 one with a 260W limit (mine only had 220W, the 'performance' BIOS, from Asus website). But nothing worked with fan speed on 'auto' (fan curve is a straight line at 43% fan speed), only with manual, and both of the other bioses on Techpowerup are the same (with a 220W limit, despite the details claiming otherwise).

    Does anyone have a proper performance BIOS for this card?

    LC bios? it will give you a bit more voltage and 1750 clocks. just put awater block on it and temps will go down, that card loves WC

    I stoped my sub on his chanel, I think that the performane on his amd gpus are low vs the rest dont know the reason, also no UV no tweaks nothing. Its only 4 clicks away on radeon setings.

    We all know that a proper tunned v56 (even with nano pcb) can get a RTX2070.

    I'm sure it will, but I can't afford a water cooling system right now, or I would have done that ages ago.

    By remaining 'on air' would it be harmful to flash to the Sapphire or MSI bioses?

    Your card has a switch for 220w\260w. On the left is 220w, on the right is 260w. Also a good mod is to remove the fans and the plastic coverage altogether and put 2 12cm fans.

    I've noticed my Vega strix started to have cooling issues in VR. I use a pimax 5k and it destroys this gpu to the point i have to run it at less than 1500mhz, VRM goes into 100+ range and HBM into 80s.
    i've been looking this, Minus pad 8 is out of stock on overclockers website, what else could i use?

    Try to source Fujipoly Sarcon Gr80a thermal pads.
    They are the best you can get.
    Not quite cheap, though. 13 w/mk thermal conductivity. (vs 8 of the Minus pad 8)

    Both settings of the switch (both P-mode and Q-mode) show a 220w board maximum, as if both settings use the same BIOS version.
    I had it flashed with the 'official' one on Asus' website, the one for which Defender gives a false positive, and apparently it was a 220w-Bios.
    Techpowerup has 3 BIOSes for the Asus: two older ones (A01S and A01M), which are the same 220W-BIOS, or at least there are no differences (despite what the Techpowerup page says).
    The third (more recent one) is a 260W BIOS, but I have to use a manual fan profile since nothing works with the automatic one (with a zero fan option and a straight curve at 43%)

    It does work though mostly so I'm using that one currently.
