My PC doesn't show the same GPU usage between my task manager and the Radeon software, is there some way of changing the settings to make it represent the usage more accurately?
The PC freezes very often, preventing me from playing any games and I can't seem to be able to find the root cause, so I'm hoping that this works out

Specs:
AMD R5 1400
ASRock AB350M Pro4
8GB RAM
WD 1TB
Gigabyte RX 560
EVGA 430W

This image shows what I see whenever I check the GPU usage with only Chrome + Discord open.

I have heard of the radeon software being buggy and this seems like it could be thet software. The freezing could be a driver issue or a hard drive issue

Hi, I have the exact same problem - I'm using a Saphire RX580 and Ryzen 6 1600af msi b450m a pro motherboard. I just built this pc yesterday and I've been having this problem since the beginning.. Nothing is open and GPU utilisation will spike to random numbers from 0-70-100%.

Same issue here getting terrible frames in games and my GPU usage on e.g CSGO goes from 0 to 100 then in the middle and repeats

I found a solution, go to RADEON settings then change the method of GPU UTIL Reporting to COMPUTE. The solved my problem.
