What is your full system specification? Without additional info it's a guessing game. I see you're on Windows 10 with an MSI Radeon R9 280X Twin Frozr Gaming.

If your card is not stable with installed graphics driver, then it is faulty; and GPU-Z doesn't show all the specs if the driver is not installed. Try the 20.11.2 driver if it works?
