Skyrim: Free Sync and V Sync causes flickering during low frame rates, and generally lower frame rates observed (about 10-30% drop dependant on system) when Free Sync is on
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z97 Gaming GT
CPU: Intel i5 4790
Memory: 16GB GDDR5
GPU: ASUS R9 Fury X
VBIOS: 115-C8800100-101 How do I find this?
Driver: Crimson 16.10.3
OS: Windows 10 x64 (1511.10586) How do I find this?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install necessary driver, GPU and medium-end CPU
2. Enable Free Sync
3. Set Options to Ultra and 1920 x 1080 resolution
4. Launch game and move to an outdoor location
5. Indoor locations in the game will not reproduce, since they generally give better performance
6. Observe flickering and general performance drop
Game runs smoothly with good performance with no visible issues
Frame rate drops low causing low performance, flickering observed during low frame rates
Threads with related issue:
Skyrim has forced double buffered V Sync and can only be disabled with the .ini files
To Disable V Sync: C:\Users"User"\Documents\My Games\Skyrim Special Edition\Skyrimprefs.ini and edit iVSyncPresentInterval=1 to 0
1440p has improved frame rate, anything lower than 1080p will lock FPS with V Sync on
Able to reproduce on i7 6700K and i5 3670K system, Sapphire RX 480, Reference RX 480, and Reference Fiji Nano

I've been running a Phenom II system for about 8 years and TBH, I really didn't need to ditch it but I was due for an upgrade. Initially I've been eyeing a TR setup but the prices for RAM, the CPU itself and of course GPU's, held me back. And as much as I wanted a TR based system, I really couldn't justify the horsepower it brought even though I could afford it. My use case is somewhat minimal. I kept a spreadsheet of components I wanted to buy and the prices. No real downward movement unfortunately. I was going to soldier on with the Phenom II and just upgrade from my R270 but the VEGA and RX580 prices were still too high. I got wind of a sale on the HP Pavilion 690-0029 which came with an 8GB RX580, did the math and though it was a good deal.
Sure the 2700x is the better choice but I'm not into overclocking and don't run the latest and greatest games. This new system seems to run a lot quicker and so far it barely breaks a sweat on my workloads. A bonus is the CPU uses less power too. The few games I play dont tax the CPU or GPU all that much where on the Phenom II/R270 it was a bit high on utilization. The only downside is that I give up my kick ass case. I'll probably sell the CPU/RAM/GPU/Mobo combo and keep an eye out for future TR sales and ram pricing.
The only downside with the new system is Windows 10. It does look good and performs well, but the constant updates and lack of privacy worries me. Can Windows 7 be installed on Ryzen systems easily? I hear that slipstreamed installs work. Failing that, any suggestions on which Linux works well on Ryzen? I'm thinking of doing the switch once and for all given my dislike of Windows 10. I'll just make a VM of my old Phenom system(Win7). I'm sure it will run nicely on the R2700. :)
Just a recap.. a couple of weeks ago I got myself a Sapphire nitro + Vega 56 :D. And it rocks :) but it killed my PSU, after I got a new one it turned out my old Mobo has some bios problems working with Vega under win 10.. So it could only run win 7 on the board. And it gave me an excuse to order a ryzen 5 2600x and aorus gaming 7 wifi board and Patriot viper rgb ddr4 3000 ram.
I have a P55a-ud3r gigabyte Mobo, 16gb ddr3 hyperx ram and a xeon x3470 cpu.
Can't wait to get the parts and start assembly :)
So what to do first :) any tips? And do I need a cooler or is the wraith one good? As this is my first mayor upgrade in years :)
Edit: spelling and wrong Mobo :)
P.s. an appeal to all 2600x owners and gaming 7 owners:
How do you like it, how did you oc it, what was your "aHa" moment :)
If i remember correctly R9 FURY X was faster than a 480 for a big margin, so what has happened? game programming has taken advantage of the feature on GCN4 or they dont fully use AMD Fury X shaders completely? notice it is 1080p https://imgur.com/a/PAyTftV
Disclaimer: Never done OCing before - want to try it out.
The amount of information out there is, frankly, overwhelming. I'm looking to marginally increase the performance of my R5 1600 with the stock cooler using an Asus Prime B350-Plus mobo. I've read that 3.7-3.8Ghz is a realistic target.
Given that there is an AMD-endorsed software overclocking solution, why shouldn't I just use that?
Title basically. Its no secret that ryzen laptops have terrible battery life compared to their intel counter parts, especially with their idle power consumption and even during workloads the intel system still wins in power consumption. This is made worse with the fact that intel systems can undervolt with intel xtu, there is ryzen master for ryzen so why aint amd releasing it considering how much undervolting headroom ryzen has?
Also please amd stop throwing the responsibility to oems to provide driver support, till this day the highest possible official driver for any ryzen laptop is 17.7.1. It is almost 2019 and we havent receive one update past that, users are forced to update drivers manually which has other issues associated with it i.e. hdmi not working, stuck with 1080p in certain games, screen flickering after changing resolutions.
Please amd, support ryzen mobile and make it a more appealing product to people so oems may actually finally advertise your laptops, till this day i haven't seen one marketing campaign for a ryzen laptop while i have seen countless intel offerings.
So I have an asrock x370 killer sli (non ac rev 1.05 or so without llc). Since the latest bios update I've encountered some instabilities, normally my cpu would run well at 1.2675 vcore and +65mv offset, now I had to crank it up to 1.275 and under load (OCCT test + linpack and p95 v26.6) it drops to 1.28v, which seems stable for now. Also with the new bios, I got control over a new voltage setting called "CPU SoC", from my understanding SoC means System on Chip and it's the voltage for everything else besides the core on a ryzen die. In order to ensure stability for my system, I set the voltage to 1.1v, I read oniline this should be a save voltage (1.0 - 1.2v). Now to my question, before I had access to this voltage (which might help me get higher ram clocks), I only had access to the VDDCR_SOC, which is an offset setting, thus I assumed it was the SoC voltage, but now I'm not so sure. Any changes I do to the CPU SoC dont translate to the VDDCR_SOC voltage sensore. Could you guys tell me what this settings actually are? I couldnt find any meaningful infos on the web. Also to add to that, does this board have a vrm temp sensor?
As title says i cannot get it to display correct usage. It either does 99% or it bounces randomly all over then place from 0%-99% when GPU isnt at full usage. Any way to fix this? I also have issue sometimes where it says im using 16GB of VRAM on my Rx 480 which isnt possible either
Hi this might be a super dumb question, but I recently got a used (hopefully) lightly mined rx580 (msi armor). It doesn't have a backplate so I'm wondering if it's safe to mount in my mobo. I cant see any warping but I'm wondering if generally it's not best practice to mount the GPU straight up.
Also, if anyone knows, this paired with a 2200g, would my apu be bottlenecking when playing csgo? TIA fam
