So as me, some people are experiencing this during their gameplay. On my porsuit to find a fix, here's what I've found. Memory clock with the latest driver (I've been having this issue apparently with all the drivers above 16.5, however, I've only tested 16.6, 16.11.5, 16.12.1 and 16.12.2) isn't stable, no matter what memory settings I'm using on Wattman.

 

 

When pushing hard the hardware, the screen freezes for 1~2 seconds, dims for 1~3 seconds and I get the message on the title. However, it's not happening on 16.5.

 

 

Is this a driver issue? Is there a fix? Is AMD looking at it? Should I RMA?
