    Unhappy VRAM issue?

    So I recently went team RED... I purchased a RX-470 OC 04G.
    I'm seeing something that looks like memory corruption but not all the elements are being affected.
    Here is a screenie... any opinions?

    Hard to tell just from one application...does this ever happen with other games or when running a stress test on the GPU?

    It might just be driver and that part of the game?

    When you say recently went red have you swapped out GPU on same OS? Did you use something like DDU to uninstall Nvidia drivers before installing AMD?

    Well the corruption is just in SWTOR slash screens and timer bars... but if I OC the Mem just 1MHz the cards performance tanks.

    I always do a DDU uninstall from safe mode even between driver builds.

    I guess the lack of OC headroom on the memory has me worried... I have seen the posts about going over 1750 will change the memory timings... but 1MHz is fishy.

    Hmmm...if it's just one thing that it does this I would worry less...but 1MHz is not much headroom. However the only AMD card I had (290X) couldn't OC memory at all either...like 20 or 30MHz and performance went downhill...other people were getting much better mem OCs...

    Keep an eye on it I guess...play some other stuff to see if any artifacting shows up...something stressful preferably
