Just purchased a used Gigabyte Aorus RX 580 8gb. I was planning to add it to a new rig.
Whilst installing it in my rx 6700 & rx 6800 rig today to try it out I noticed it was doing between 18-22 hash max. If I removed all overlock settings it does 22,14 it seems to be capped as it never went over it.
It has Hynix memory. What I find strange is that next to the Hynix memory label in hive it only shows xxxxxxx and not any information like my other cards do.
What have I tried:
- I flashed to the original bios, no difference
- I flashed to better timings using the bios flash tool to auto optimise timings with one click
- I tried a bunch of overclock profiles. No matter what I change in Hive OS the hashrate will only go down
- I installed the card in two different rigs
Is this a faulty card or am I overlooking something? The card runs around 60-75 degrees Celsius but it sure feels very hot.
This issue makes me wonder if I like to scale up with rx580s and buy them cheap in a used state. If it’s like the lottery if they do more than 22 hash then I prefer a 1660 super for sure.
