Vega 56 on 64 Bios Power Swings

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all, I just got my Vega 56 and after doing control benchmarks I decided to jump straight into doing a Vega 64 Bios Flash. I have an Asrock Phantom Gaming model which as far I know is reference (I mean the cooler is reference so I think it's pretty fair to say).  When I load up the Tomb Raider: DOX demo and sit in the first scene, with clocks in P7 down to 1552 MHz and the power target at +50%, I get wild power consumption occilation and subsequently the clocks follow suit. I should also note that the fans will ramp up and then slowly come down only to ramp up again and repeat. I'm using the Vega 64 LC bios since the other 2 would not give display out when I flashed them. I tested this on the default power saving BIOS and no such issues. Any help would be appreciated :)

you should have stuck with the stock bios instead if V64 air bios or even V56 high power bios doesn't work. I think what your card goes through is "There's a 3D app running, lets slam the card hard since cooling isnt a problem" "oh shit WTF it's getting mudderfking hot, abort abort abort!" "ok it's not that hot now, work as usual" "it's cooking down here, abort abort abort" etc.

"What's under the heatsink?" ep1, "Why it's not as good as it seem?" AMD fanboy edition out, episode 2 "Why my gaming board is a scam?" Intel fanboy edition coming soon (this is a link)

That what I was suspecting, I've reverted back to the stock higher power 56 BIOS but do you think lowering the power target would help any?
