5700XT + CORE X Randomly gets Blank Green Screen on External Monitor
@alessandro_lusi, i actually just tried to tweak the settings on the new card in wattman to replicate your problem and it crashed. It’s been stable besides that, so I am pretty certain that the new card is better, but I’m just gonna leave the settings on auto since this is stable like yours... I’ll try to update the drivers later as well, but for now I am satisfied with the non glitcy screen and trouble less gaming good luck!
@malthe_emil_blichfeldt, Hi I am having the same issue as you were having. Is your issues resolved with the new card? This is the one I have in a raxer x gpu
I feel like we can't all have bad hardware 🙁
The instability is extremely frustrating and I'm thinking about just selling the eGPU setup and moving on.
Hi guys, did you manage to solve this issue?
I’m getting the same green screen and mac restart, and it’s really annoying 🙁
My hardware is
- Mac Mini 2018
- PowerColor Red Devil XR 5700 XT
The eGPU has been stable ever since.
(The Ethernet and USB hub feature of the Core X Chroma, on the other hand, are still not reliable enough to use. Ugh.).
Interestingly, I've connected the eGPU to a Lenovo laptop, running Windows 10 and AMD drivers, and tested it out for 1-2 hours... It worked flawlessly.
I'm curious if this is a macOS issue... 🤔
@newtoallthis, yes the new card fixed it.
but I could replicate the issue with the new card also, by booting up in windows via bootcamp, and tweaking the wattman settings for the card (Overclocking it). Then is got the black screen/green screen again. It seams to me like the Mac has a problem handling some of the cards.
honestly I spend two full weeks trying to figure it out, but I couldn’t isolate the problem. I don’t think it’s a driver problem, since it’s crashing with 3 different driver (both Mac OS and windows).
my advise: try exchanging the card, sadly that’s the only thing that worked for me.
Maybe it’s more helpful for members here if you start a new Big Sur BETA SOFTWARE thread, as this isn’t necessarily a developer-specific forum.
Also, the Red Devil cards are overclocked too high for their design, which is the issue.
I’ve haven’t seen anyone on this site recommended the Red Devil.
If you ask for a recommendation, I’m sure someone would give you a better option to consider.
