Hi,
I got a problem with my Power Color Re Devil 6800xt. I got fps drops and my Gpu isn't used at 100%. I tried a lot of different things but nothing worked. The usage goes from 60% to 85%. I have a R5 3600, an Asus tuf b450 and 16go 3466mhz. My friend who has the exact same card, and has a R5 5600x, an Msi b550 (don't know exactly) and 32go 3600mhz. We have different computers but we have the same problem.
So this can not be a Cpu bottleneck. And this can only be an issue from our gpu. We are thinking of changing to a RTX 3080 but I saw some people have the same problem with their 3080. So here is my question, is it worth changing from a 6800xt to a rtx 3080 for gaming in 1440p?

It's not a GPU problem if it's only using 60-85% usage. Are you on latest drivers? What are your temps while gaming? What PSU? Are you running in dual channel mode?

Yes I have the latest divers, I also did a DDU when I installed the GPU. The temps are 65° max. I have a 750 watt PSU from Aerocool (I know it's not the greatest but I have a corsair 850w incoming). And yes I'm running dual channel.

Is it worth it? NO. The 6800 XT is a perfectly fine card.

Not every game utilizes the GPU at 100%.

Try Heaven GPU benchmark or unigine superposition, and see if the GPU is utilized completely, then compare your results with the average 6800 XT.

Just did a Heaven becnhmark in 1440p, and the same happens. I got from 50 fps to 250 fps. Usage went from 98% to 51%. I don't know what the F is going on...

I don't really want 100% usage, I want to not have drops. Like in warzone I would like to have 144 fps for my 144hz screen. But One moment I have 150 fps and the second after it can go down to 110 fps

I doubt that's a problem with the GPU itself then. Start looking somewhere else -- temps, drivers, if XMP/DOCP is enabled... Try enabling CPPC & CPPC Preferred Cores in the BIOS.

Or yeah, post an userbenchmark result.

The temps are 65° max so that's not it. My XMP is enabled so not that either. And that's really dumb but I'm first on this forum and I don't know how to post images.... :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

I can’t see it too well, but that is an awful gpu score. I am leaning massively towards a bad driver update. Can you download an older one?

One question, could it be the PSU ? mine is 750W and it's recommended 850W for the power color red devil, and I have a Aerocool and a lot of peaople say that's a <Mod Edit> one

I think 750w should be enough, but... there is a potentially i guess. Best to rule out drivers and OS first though. However, with something like that as a gpu, it’s probably advisable to have a nice high spec psu. I have a Corsair Rmx850w and it’s fantastic
