How do you check if a graphics card is faulty

I have a vega 56 and am starting to wonder if the graphics card is faulty.  It cant even run games like fortnite and thief simulator without constant fps drops and stutters.  Is there a way I can check what is causing this problem.

It is a good possibility. So, it displayed it as a vega 64 when you inserted it into your mobo?

Well, how big are the drops? And do they occur randomly or during pretty graphically intense scenes like explosions and such?

In games like fortnite they just occur all the time sometimes they are only to 50 but sometimes down to 20.  However I can run rainbow six siege with almost no stutters

Hmm, yea I would see how to change what the gpu is displayed as and see if that does anything

Done some research and seems like the change is permanent.

If you still can, I would return it or get your money back, but there may be something I'm missing
