Seriously though, that’s the best way to describe this odd little behavior of my AMD Radeon Pro w5700.
So I just installed a new Gigabyte Vision DP motherboard in a fairly new computer build. While the system is on and has been idle for a few minutes and everything begins to power down, when the computer monitor goes into an idle State and shuts off, the GPU has this odd little behavior that quite frankly resembles sleep apnea. It’s like it’s taking this momentary gasp of air.
About every 15 to 30 seconds the GPU will make this short little sound that lasts for a couple thousandths of a second and then the fan will rev up and then rev down for about 1 second. The GPU definitely didn’t do that with the previous motherboard which was an Asus Pro art.
Has anyone else had a similar experience with an AMD GPU? Is there a solution for this, is it something I should be concerned about? Inquiring minds want to know.
