    from completed build Sofia - First Build

    A strange little card. Granted it's old and I'm borrowing it, but it seems to have a defect in which the core clock gets stuck at 300 MHz and won't go back up to its real core clock, which is 1100 MHz. Uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers worked once but only once, and since then I've been toggling a PCI-e setting in BIOS (can't really remember, something to do with waking the PCI-e device or something) between "disabled" and "enabled". It will seemingly downclock itself in the middle of a task, as I was playing Overwatch one day and getting a bunch of frame stutters before the software seemed to crash and the card reset itself to 300 MHz.

    The most definitive solution to this problem that I found on the internet was "RMA the card". It's way past warranty anyway, so I've just been giving it an adrenaline shot any time it goes back into a coma.

    Other than that, it's been fine. I needed it to set up the computer because Ryzen doesn't have integrated graphics. It's quiet, which I guess is the main reason for the DD design. I've been able to run Overwatch at low settings (100% render scale) at around 70-90 FPS, PUBG at low settings around 50 FPS. Makes an old console pleb happy.

    Update: Card behavior has not been entirely consistent. Now when I start a game of Overwatch, it crashes completely. Every other game is fine. From time to time, it will give me lots of stuttering, which is usually the sign that it's about to fail. After looking around I downloaded the RadeonMod application and I've been restarting the drivers every time it's downclocked. I usually have to restart the drivers like 3 or 4 times for it to go back to normal. Weird, I know, but a used 480 is on the way.
