I have bought 5600Xt pulse against my vega64 red devil due to the overwelming complain due to the stability of a gameplay due to the drivers.
I havent noticed it to be honest but...
I've had some problems. Not with the cards as it turened out but with the power supply.
As you can see in my spec I have a Vega64 and a 5600xt(as of now), well I got a 5600xt week ago. I've had the old AXi Corsair 760w for 8 years. Kudos to the Corsair AXi model btw. I'm not gonna lie here. I bought the 5600xt to check the outstanding complains of the new radeon cards. ( I just bought the 5600xt to chech what's this ppl were saying about that it sucks. I got the old Bios and I had to OC it. The mem to 1750Mhz cause it was 1500Mhz. It is still weired. If there is an 5600xt Pulse owner, please share thoughts. I've encountered problems wit the 5600Xt as well. Black screens and crashes. well, I have taken shit load of things to fix it and no luck. Changed my PSU to a brand new one (from a 8 year old AXI Corsair 760). Never had a problem since. What is your take on it?

Please if you have some input, share it. Otherwise don't.
Thanks for all the sharing

Sorry, but what are you asking here? The grammar and typos and... yikes.

Are you asking If others have seen the 5600xt and its black screen issues? Check AMD driver notes for known issues. ;)

Edit: read it again, lol...I'm surprised the psu fixed it, honestly. If that really was a fix and not a coincidence. That said, we've seen others who complain about the issue also try a different psu and the issue persists. The psu also works with other cards so...is it really bad? If this was a quick fix, it would have worked more consistently for others.

Looks like he used Google Translate.

He had black screens and crashes with a new RX 5600 XT.

Replacing the old Corsair AXI760i PSU solved it for him.

PSUs go bad with time.
