Haha yeah well that's the way. It's also POSSIBLE that it's a PSU issue, but again, without another one to test with, no way to know. RMA the card, if it's the card that's the problem, it'll do it for them to and you'll get a new one. If it doesn't, they send back the old one and you move on to the PSU.

Looks like possible vram artifacting. Do you have another display adapter you can test with? What are the full system specs including PSU?
I have another hdmi
Specs:
CPU Ryzen 5 1600
MOBO Gigabyte-A320M-S2H rev 1
RAM G.skil aegis 8gb 3000mhz ddr4
PSU Thermaltake Smart RGB 500w
GPU Sapphire radeon rx 580 8gb pulse


Edit: I tried the other cable and i still have the problem

I don't mean another cable, I mean another video card. You don't have onboard video to use for troubleshooting, so it'd be very helpful if you had another video card you could test with. If you don't, and it isn't possible to pick up something for $10 or $15 used from craigslist or something, I would see if it isn't too late to return or exchange your video card, depending on where you got it from.

Well, you can try using DDU in safe mode to remove and then do a clean install of the drivers, but this really looks like more of a hardware issue. I hope you got your RX 580 new, or at least from eBay with some buyer protection.

Maybe, maybe not. Impossible to say, but I wouldn't bet on it. It's worth a shot reinstalling drivers after removing the old ones with DDU. A card fresh from the box shouldn't be artifacting period, so even if drivers fixed the issue for now, who knows when it may come back.
That's good news, I hope it keeps working for you.
Nevermind i restarted and its still there :\

One last question in order to have visual artifacting should the dots remain static? Cause mine flicker and change position anytime i do anything (like moving mouse)

Just skimmed through this ...

Looks like a HW issue - going into safe mode takes the 3D calculations on the card out of the equation. Drivers would be my second guess, but if you tried a clean re-install that probably rules that out mostly.

Remeca's guidance looks spot on to me. (y)
