My Card Model : XFX R9 280x Double Dissipation (1000/1500)

I fought with this for a while and I've noticed a trend with forum postings on the issue, either people aren't really resolving it or they're not coming back to post what they did to resolve it!

I had the 2D flickering / jumping issue where the screen would jump downwards for just a split second while browsing or whatever. It was happening when the card would shift clock frequencies on the GPU & Mem, or at least that's what I identified as happening when the flicker / jump occurred.

I tried many different driver versions, 13.12 seemed like it had the least amount of jumping. At one point I had it set so my GPU was never sleeping, that prevented the jumps as well. Thinking I'd go down the BIOS route only after I had exhausted other possibilities, after all it's a new card and XFX doesn't post any BIOS downloads on their webpage...

So the other day I got sick and tired of it, and it actually was messing with my head (headaches) while I was working on some programming. Lines of text and that jumping every 30-60 seconds will drive you nuts and make your eyes sore, I had to get it fixed.

Over at this webpage you can search for BIOSes for your video card:
http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/i...&model=R9+280X
(That webpage is a search for my XFX card and model, you'll need to adjust it for your card)

Looking at the options there it was hard to tell which one to try, people said the Double Dissipation Black Edition was fine to use on the previous non-Black model and would provide a small speed boost. I tried about 4 different BIOSes before I found the one that worked best for me, the one at the top of the list compiled '2014-01-16 03:04:00'. Note that this is a Black edition firmware, but I only loaded it as the others either didn't fix the flicker, or weren't initialized properly within windows. (Low res mode, complaints the video card wasn't working)

I used ATIWinflash to flash the BIOSes and GPU-Z to backup my original BIOS and inspect the card's BIOS versions before & after flashing.

Not sure that this particular BIOS would fix it for people, so I thought I would list my troubleshooting list in hopes it leads someone to a fix.

It's an old thread I know, but this problem literally gave me a headache and I wanted to get my tests and results out there for people to see.

Hi

Just wanted to report that my Club 3D Royal Queen 280x also has this Flicker Problem.

 

New Clean Driver Installations didnt helped,and i don want to tinker with the Bios since it still has Warranty.

 

Currently running the Newest Catalyst.

 

:c

This, royaly, sucks.
Is it VDDC, is it voltage, is it VBIOS, is it factory overclocks, is it driver?
What is it! Why won't amd give a DAMN clear answer on this!

This is unnaceptable!

True

I Got my Royal Queen a bit cheaper then normal from Amazon.

It was Used but in a perfect condition etc.

Already sent the Seller a Warranty ticket

 

Everything is fine with the card.. just that ***** flicker problem and coil whining (wich seems to be a normal thing at high framerates for those Club 3D cards)

 

Today i didnt had flickering tough and i didnt changed drivers or whatever

 

 

Very strange,and kinda horrible since no one knows if this problem could destroy the card over a longer time.

I am done with AMD

I've been a loyal and happy ATi customer for nearly 14 years; I avoided nVidia like the plague - I've owned ATi video cards since Radeon 7000 era

about 3 weeks ago, my 2 year old HD7870Ghz Ed crashed (with heavy artifacts) while playing Guild Wars 2 - RMAed it, the guys there told me the card is beyond repair and since it's no longer manufactured they said they'll send me a 280X as replacement

I said OK with 1/2 voice because I knew the R9 was a big pile of steaming poo, forums filled with people reporting issues with these cards, even here on official AMD forums

and on top of that, 280X is just a rebranded HD7970Ghz Ed - it just bogles the mind that videocard manufacturers have REV 2.0 of this card, let alone a pledora of BIOSes

the card arived, unistalled every trace of AMD driver and software then installed the latest WHQLs, I thought my brain is playing jokes on me when I saw the image jumping down - googling around I found that this is quite "normal" (pun inteneded), my head exploded

I can RMAit, again, but they'll just send one exactly the same since it appears it's a BIOS issue, not hardware

 

AMD, you and me are over! I just hope a new company pops up, not eager to dish out GPUs every year like candy, but more oriented towards stability

AMD, I spit on your grave

We all have problems with this. AMD is a new world for me and i dont like the world. You have to know so much about it. But in the end ... you cant do anything ... because its the driver or the AMD hardware.
