Must be Focus Plus which is known by issues. Black screen and shut down with particular GPUs. GTX 970 Strix, AMD Vega 56/64, RTX 3060 Ti and I've seen it shut down with a XFX RX 580 GTS XXX Edition. I wouldn't pair it with a RX 6700 XT/6800 XT. Better to replace the unit.
I think i wil go for the Rmx 750w 2021 psu
And i will try sell my seasonic 550w psu
