How to diagnose my desktop video card?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently bought a "AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, 8GB, Gigabyte Gaming OC, GDDR6, 256bit, Display Port, HDMI" and ordered the company that sold me all my PC parts to assemble it and I want to test it if it's OK.

Can you suggest any software that would test if the card is OK? I don't know much about this stuff, so I guess it's performance must be tested because it looks assembled right but like I said - I'm a complete n00b at this.

Are you actually experiencing any issues? For the most part, if you got a picture, you did it right. Other than that, just run 3DMark or Heaven Benchmark on it, and verify that you're getting roughly the performance you'd expect.

Hello, Mr. Lord :)

 

I haven't experienced any issues but I haven't run anything GPU-intensive, either. So I'd like to test the video card to see if it overheats or in any other way fails when within normal working parameters.

I'll check those two out, thanks!

I would use MSI Afterburner to check OSD temps/utilization and run 3DMark. If you're really concerned about stability, I use the stress tests that you find in 3DMark.

you can also run 3dmark timespy, it'll bench both CPU and GPU, and you can compare with online database to see if it's performing up to what other people are getting

you may also monitor temperature using MSI afterburner while doing tests, make sure it doesnt get too hot (over 80c is hot) for cpu and gpu

for CPU, you can run Cinebench R20 and compare it with online benchmarks, within ~5% is good enough

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

See just see the baseline clock speed n thermal performance on google then u monitor ur card using msi afterburner software, play a game while monitoring the card

uhm, it says 3Dmark basic is supposed to be free but in steam there is no free option?

Am I doing something wrong or are both 3Dmark and PCmark paid only?

3DMark you pay for, its like $20 for it on Steam but when its the Steam sales, you can usually pick it up for pretty cheap, like $5.

Here's the link on their website. I can't tell if it takes you to a free edition as I already own this in Steam
