Arc A770 monitoring issues vram

Hey,

 

I received my Asrock ARC A770 8GB yesterday.

Looking around in ARC control center under performance i did notice that Effective vram frequency does not work and the base clock of the asrock model should be 2200Mhz which i would think give higher boost clocks out of the box.

I have used DDU and tried reinstalling all drivers over again including the one ending on 4032 which released on 12/21/2022. 

Is this a software issue or a possible a defective card?

The 2200 MHz is the GPU clock, not VRAM clock. You can run a 3D game and see if your GPU clock goes up to 2200 MHz.

 

The Effective VRAM frequency is either 16.0 GT/s for the 2000 MHz VRAM clock or 17.5 GT/s for a 2187 MHz VRAM clock configuration. Intel Arc's VRAM clock is fixed, not variable like Nvidia or AMD's GPU, so monitoring the VRAM clock on an Arc GPU doesn't seem to be very meaningful.

The gpu clock itself gave itself up as 2100Mhz in GPU-Z not 2200 as the advertised. 

The card stopped functioning properly all together would not even be fully utilized during benchmarks when it came to wattage.

The card also started with insane Coil  Whine that even a noise supression VST would not be able to keep out. 

I was having really high hopes for the card but first Intel card and pretty much died on me after 2 days.

Hey

 

I no longer own the card, due to the issues in Overwatch 2 and several other games that keep getting crashes in combination with the coil whine i had to send in the card to my local dealer hopefully they can take care of the coil whine.

Hopefully things will improve over time but for now i wont be able to use the card due to the various issues.

 

Best regards
