Setting RX 5700-XT to full power during game

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Is there a way to set this AMD card to full power during games? Sort of like that option on Nvidia control panel that allowed to prefer maximum performance over energy saving.

Not that I have seen. Although if you are talking about wattage, you can up that in MSI afterburner.

I was thinking more having the clock speeds running at max all the time during a game.

I have heard this is a drivers issue that I am unsure if it has been addressed yet. Lots of people are having similar issues. 

Yeah, I can´t seem to find a way to do it as in my previous Nvidia GPU. It is causing problems with games like LoL which sometimes make clock speed drop so much that it makes the game lag.

What are you monitoring usage with?  With AMD cards (specifically the Island based GPU configs) a lot of software monitoring wasn't getting it right (Sapphires own for Sapphires own cards) so after a lot of digging, I also use Task Manager as that is more accurate for some AMD cards I have found.

Okay. For now, look up the clock speeds for your specific model, and use MSI afterburner to overclock to the boost clock.

Using MSI afterburner. I have the Sapphire Pulse card. Is there a software dedicated for that card? I´d love it.

Yeah it's pretty unfortunate that the AMD is having driver issues like these. Do you have the latest drivers? They may have released a fixed version of the drivers by now.

ClockBlocker

 

Im not kidding.  Its a software fix for AMD cards invented when having these sort of driver issues.  It was invented around the Island series of GPUs.  Ive used it, it basically puts a light load on your GPU so when it tries to downclock on a heavy load it cant...because the multitask (basically)

Sapphire Trixx I believe is their software.  Afterburner is better imho.

Yes, I have the lastest recommended driver, because I was having issues with the lastest optional one.

Okay. First of all, put the power limit  on max ( Put the slider all the way to the right )  

Second, look up the boost clocks and memory clocks for your model of 5700XT, then move the sliders right (Higher clock) or left (Lower clock) till you have it right. then hit the check mark (Apply).

I slided them but they seem to have no effect. Once I clicked apply.

Software was originally created for Fiji based chips (Island based AMD) so was for, example, R9 Fury's - my advice is dig deep into reddit about this clock fluctuation, you may find someone has answers already.

Thanks for your help. I´ve found some people with the same problem but there seems to be no solution right now :(

So on any AMD card just go to Powerslider and put it to max . It will go to the max power the card can provide on stock setings. Easy as this.

I did this on MSI Afterburner. Set the slider to +50 (max) but I see no difference.

I would not touch Afterburner with amd cards. Was a buggy mess with Vega 56 last time I checked and back then rivatuner stats on screen ate up 2-5% of performance too.

Depending on driver version, it's better than the usually broken mess that is Wattman. On the last Adrenaline 2019 WQHL drivers though (with my RVII at least), Wattman actually works better than Afterburner for once.

I tried using Trixx but has no fan control.

 

My 2020 version of AMD software has no wattman so no fan control.

 

The only decent program I find for fan control is Afterburner.

 

Do you recommend any?

I can´t find wattman on 2020 version. I would rather set my fan curve with that though.
