    Two GPUs and two monitors, how does it work?


    Hi, today I got myself a new computer. It has space for 1 more GPU, the current GPU doesn't have more than 1 HDMI port, so I was planning on connecting my secondary monitor (since I don't use it for anything else than a web browser and some streaming stuff) to another GPU. I know it works (I think), but the only thing I was wondering about is this: would a game running on my new GPU, dedicate "all" of its resources to everything on my main display, instead of a browser on one display, and...

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds

    GPU

    Hi,

    This issue may happen if the GPU is taking more time to display the graphics on your monitor and if the graphics card or driver is already problematic.

    As an initial troubleshooting step, try to uninstall then reinstall the graphics driver and see if the issue will persist:

    • Press Windows key + S and type devmgmt.msc.
    • Press Enter.
    • Expand Display adapters.
    • Right-click on your graphics driver.
    • Select Uninstall.
    • Click OK.
    • Restart your computer.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide further assistance.
