Sora - can you share what settings you used for undervolting?  Nice results!

Yea need to mess with undervolting as others show great results.   I have no clue on what or why my one score is 18.2k vs 17.8k in firestrike.  I went to blame the cpu but the score is on the gpu side thats different.  The clock on the 18k run is lower clocks than my OC clocks.  Ive tried to run in balance mode but gives lower than my OC, reran several times too.   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Probably should unplug the raid group!

Looking at my results is kinda confusing... Im not sure how but I did get over 18k, possibly balanced mode. I probably need to look at undervolting. Really not seeing huge improvement over 56 bios so far, there's some but not huge amounts. Will be playing around more soon. Possibly flash back later.

must say im kinda envious i haven't had a amd system since opteron 170 with bh-5 & x1900xtx cf
hurry up and bench it :)

But that would have been an ATI card then, not AMD.

 

;)


Well I sold my GTX 1070 for $4 more than what I paid for it (thanks miners).  Bought the RX 56 and it was $18 more than what I sold the GTX 1070.  Basically, Im doing another side upgrade so I can play with new stuff.  RX 56 has been great even with crap drivers.  Most things were about the same performance as my OC 1070 while running stock.  

 

I decided to go ahead and flash the card as I was not able to get over 1500mhz on the core and the HBM2 ram didn't like anything over 800mhz.  I used the air version bios of RX 64 not the liquid.  It took without any issues.  Now when I run turbo mode it clock around 1560mhz and the ram is 945mhz.  I've been able to OC into the 1600mhz range but not sure its limits but know that 1700mhz is a no go.  If I can figure out the limits, I might try to flash to the liquid version as it gives even more watts available but need to test for current heat and the fan profiles to keep it under 80c.  

 

Really a neat card and cant believe I have an all AMD system again... Super happy about that!

Good on you for supporting AMD.. but personally I would have stuck with the 1070, as it's quieter, cooler, and uses less power... my two cents.

 

 

Yea side grade with a slight boost but just to play with a new card, fresh warranty.  Not really worried about the power as it probably only few extra $ a month.

Yea been a long time coming, use to only run AMD cpu till Sandy :)  

 

Some quick results without any OC but with 64 bios, CPU @ 3.95ghz and should be able to bench it 200mhz more:

 

Turbo:

Power Limit 50%:  Not much difference, I need to find my meter to test power draw between modes.  Probably online somewhere too.

Below is a quick OC, Core around 1640mhz:

OC 4%, Stock RAM, PL 50%:

Edit:  I think I can get more out of the core maybe even 1700, might have crashed before when I had OC the RAM.  

 

1670mhz per wattman, pretty much flat line too with only a few mhz up or down in a 10mhz range:

OC 6%, Stock RAM, PL 50%:

Edit2:  Nah, crashed the core at 8%.  Sucks when my PC crashes because I have a few large spinners that are in raid1 that rebuild each time.  Looks like its off to the RAM OC now, then an OC with both CPU/GPU maxed :)

 

Will do more test soon!
