Something is wrong with my gpu but I don't know what

So I was playing Star wars battlefront 2 and all of a sudden my screen went black and my gpu fans started to spin really fast. I quickly shut the system down using the button on the case. I ran the game multiple times and the same thing has happened. I don't think that it is overheating because the highest it has gotten to is 79 while playing the game. I have also ran the game on medium, high, and ultra settings. This also happened when I tried to play AOE 3 definitive addition. The one time I was able to play battlefront was when I manually had the fans set to 80 percent. What's wrong with my pc and how can I fix it. My specs are, asus rog strix rx580, ryzen 5 2600, asus rog strix b450-f, corsair rm850, samsung evo 970 plus, and 16gb of tridentz ram.

 

edit: it is able to run r6 no problem.

Start with getting the latest drivers for your GPU. If that doesn't work report back here.

Downgrade the drivers to the previous version and test again. It might be that the latest driver somehow causes instability. If that doesnt fix the problem I would reseat the graphics card (make sure all the cables are connected firmly). Report back if that doesnt help.

Try testing the GPU with GPUPI 3.3.3,Press Calculate then use the following settings:

32B HWbot GPU

choose your GPU in OpenCL GPU devices

Batch size: 20M

Reduction size: 512

Then press OK to start.

(Press cancel if a message about HPET appears)

 

GPUPI 3.3.3 download page:

Tell us if you get any errors while testing.

I tried it with both drivers. Still crashes

Your GPU is dying,lower the clock speed to get more life out of it.

An invalid result means that the GPU is unstable,GPUs that are unstable at stock configuration are bad and often degraded,and that basically means that the GPU is dying.

Lowering the clock speed for an unstable GPU improves stability.

Lowering the clock speed for a GPU will definately help stability. If your card is unstable in stock condition however, I would look into RMA'ing it if you still have valid warranty as it will most likely get worse as time goes on and you paid for it to atleast work flawlessly stock anyway.
