So it is my semi quarterly forum post! I feel like I get the best answers from the Level1 community.
So I bought an openbox Strix Vega 56 from Microcenter a week ago. So far I’d say game performance across every game has been pretty awesome when compared to my MSI RX 480.
However I keep getting an alert the GPU is hitting 80C consistently, every hour or so. It hits that mark in Watch_Dogs 2 more often than not. I’ve read elsewhere, Vega is just a hot card over all. The thing that has me worried this card might be bad, and the reason for it being returned in the first place. I’m running into some artifacting blinking in Watch_Dogs 2. Almost as if the card is running too hot when the game is running. I’ll post a video or screenshots once I have it captured. Thoughts anyone?
