Am having zero issues here lol am just running my older undervolt profile with these.
the 18.12.2 drivers are broke, its asking me to update to the 18.12.2 even though I already have them installed :S
Technology has come along way since floppy discs my friend.
Precisely, but software development sadly has gone backwards regarding quality.
I'm getting weird fan revving with 18.12.3 as it hovers above and just below 50c, it's annoying. It seems to be high rpm or off, nothing in between.
18.12.2 are borked for me, the first set of Amd drivers I've have issues with in years. Installed but after restart soon as the drivers loads in Windows I get a black screen. Had to remove them in safe mode to fix. Back on previous drivers and all good again. Haven't tried 18.13.3 yet......
I keep getting notifications to update driver to 18.12.2 even though that's what I'm running on ? Any ideas?
go into radeon settings and turn notifications off till they get it sorted.
Just updated to 18.12.3 but now have no 0 rpm mode on my sapphire pulse vega 56.
I can’t set fans below 30% in Wattman.
Do I need to roll back?
Just been googling around and whilst I suspect it’s a **** up rather than intentional the 0db idle feature seems to have been removed in the latest driver.
Going to roll back for now but unless they sort their **** out my time with AMD will be very short indeed.
So, the fan curve isn't dynamic, it's static points?
When it hits X it will do Y. Rather than dynamically adjust. That's just typical AMD laziness.
Hdmi scaling doesn't save after a reboot, anyone else having this issue with the latest drivers?
It's probably to avoid a constantly changing fan noise that is considered more annoying than one that stays the same until it jumps to the next point.
Unless I'm mistaken we can't add anymore points which vastly limits the usability. The static points are far more annoying because of this.
Football Manager has me wanting to chuck my PC away. Whirring for a second and then silence and then whirring again.
Yeah, I've had that happen with my CPU fans before and it's very annoying.
0db mode is a real deal breaker for me. The browsing/office watching films etc. Sat here now with my once ‘silent’ pc sounding like an aircraft.
A fan spinning at 30% sounds like an aircraft? Somehow i really doubt it.
Yeah my cards are mining at 32% and its not that audible. If you ever owned a reference 290x then I could understand!
If you have an issue with noise on the GPU is there no way you can just manually set the fan to be at one speed that you can tolerate?
Personally have the Strix Vega 64 and it's pretty quiet, At 30% it's inaudible, If it sounds like an aircraft then it's not reporting the speed correctly and it's running much higher than 30%, I have a Sapphire 580 Nitro + Limited Edition in my server and even at 40% it's really quiet and it's basically the same fan setup as the Vega 56 Pulse version you have.
I suppose I am use to my 0db mode.
Yes ok some exaggeration
But very noticeable for someone who is has a silent house and is a silent pc fanatic. Plus an advertised feature of the card no longer works. I have now rolled back to 18.12.1 and silence has been restored. It was very apparent when the old driver kicked back in and the fans switched off. I doubt I’m the only one who values this feature they have paid for and if it no longer works on the latest drivers it’s maybe RMA time.
@Dicehunter I used to have the strix 1080 and yes that was a great cooler and very quiet. The Saphire pulse isn’t as quiet imo.
