I recently just built a system to upgrade from my older build and I think there may be a problem with the GPU. I was hoping someone might have some advice.
AMD Ryzen 5 1600 CPU
Asus ROG Strix B350-F Gaming MB
Asus ROG-STRIX-RX580-O8G-GAMING GPU
G.SKILL Aegis 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400 RAM
Seasonic Focus Plus SSR-650FX 650W 80+ Gold PSU
Western Digital Black 1TB HDD
Windows 10 Home 64-bit OS
Reusing my older ASUS VW266H 25.5" 1920x1200 monitor.
I first noticed that on of my older games, that I never had a problem with, was acting weird and I was getting green lines shooting across the screen for a split second. It always did this while performing a particular action in the game (America's Army: Proving Grounds while reviving a fallen team mate).
I then tried Battlefiled 1 and kept getting some stuttering and micro freezing ocassionally. I only had it set to high, not even Ultra, which this combo should be able to run.. especially considering its basically 1080.
I got worried and started to look for something else to test the card out. I then noticed that the Asus GPU came with a link to furmark. So I tried it out for a couple of minutes and came up with an alarming result. While testing under OpenGL it ran fine and running it again while scanning for artifacts, it came up clean. I then tried the Vulkan version and it ran fine... but when I tried it with the artifact scanner running, it had MASSIVE artifacts. I ran it for only one minute and came up with 33,733 artifacts!!
Everything is at stock and was built a couple of days ago.
I fully updated Windows 10.
I tried the divers that came with the GPU. I tried the newest offical ADM drivers and I tried the newest AMD beta drivers. I get the same results with all.
I uninstalled all Asus software and got the same results.
I reinstalled Asus software and got the same results.
I'm not sure if it is my GPU or a problem with furmark.. but combined with the game issues I'm experiencing so far, I'm leaning towards a bad GPU?? I still have time to RMA the card and get it replaced. I just wanted to see if anyone else has problems running furmark vulkan, with scanner enabled, with their RX 580.
Any help or advice is appreciated.
