Single 8gb DIMM? If so, it’ll be holding back your 2600 and in turn holding back your 5700 XT. You need dual channel ram, preferably 16 gigs. Don’t buy another single DIMM to go with your current ram, buy a new 2x8gb kit. 3200-3600 mhz is ideal.

My RX 5700 XT usage is incredibly low on a lot of games, power draw as well. Usually less than 40% usage and under 60 watts.
Things ive tried-
Uninstalling drivers using ddu
checking pcie
upping power limit
updating chipset drivers/and bios

also have a 600W PSU idk if that matters or not
Yup, looks like you only have one stick of ram. You’ll see a huge improvement with dual channel 16 gigabytes. Also enable XMP if your ram is rated at faster than 2133 mhz, looks like that’s what your ram is running at right now

I enabled my XMP via profile 1 I think that's right, also for the ram do I need the same one as my current and which would you recommend

I just realized one of my ram sticks were not working so I had to put it in a different slot so they're dual channel. It did give me more frames however, my cpu usage is still around 80-90% while my gpu is is staying around 60-70%

Is it still running at 2133 mhz? Ryzen likes fast ram

Updated: I ordered a 3600mhz 16gb kit and my performance issues are gone comepletely. I had no idea ram affected performance this much!

When using a Ryzen processor, especially Ryzen 5 3000 series and above, RAM is extremely important. Fast ram in dual channel will always significantly increase the performance of a Ryzen.
