[Rant]: RX 5700... a frustrating experience
The_Aquabat commented on 11 December 2019 at 6:00 pm UTC

The_AquabatI also had problems with my 1600 but it was one of the first silicons and would also crash gcc a lot besides other programs as well. I ended switching to a 2600, no problems with that at all. Some of those silicons are really faulty if you are really lucky I guess you could send it to RMA.

you have to be lucky because some ppl report that even after three times of getting replacements from RMA they still have faulty chips. I didn't want to go through all that hassle and ended up replacing it for a 2600.

Yeah, first generation Ryzens are just too buggy. Save yourself the trouble and get a new Zen 2 chip (3000 series).

ShmerlFor me it got fixed, but those messages still spam dmesg, so I disabled most amdgpu sensors meanwhile, except for temperature monitor in KDE plasmoid, which doesn't trigger it for me.

@Smerl, which sensors and where did you disable it? I have the same issues, so I hope your workaround will help me.

Fan and temperature sensors in ksysguard.

Running 5.5-rc5 with amdgpu sensors in ksysguard. Looks like the powerplay bug is fixed now.

Current Oibaf Mesa and Kernels 5.3.x (on 5.3.18 now) is still the only stable configuration with the RX 5700 for me.

With Kernel 5.5-rc5 I usually can't even reach the desktop, either it gets stuck during boot on black screen or error message "[drm:dm_helpers_parse_edid_caps [amdgpu]] *ERROR* Couldn't read SADs: -2". Or I reach the desktop, but then getting hard freezes.

So I guess I'm holding on to Kernels 5.3.x for now

I'm currently running Ubuntu's mainline 5.4.8 and Mesa from Kisak's PPA (19.3.1 with some backports) and everything seems to work fine.

I'm on Mint 19.2 too running the 5.5-rc5 Kernel (Generic Ubuntu) and mesa 20.0 (oibaf ppa) and everything is silky smooth. I had some problem during the installation due to the outdated or non-existant firmwares from Mint. Did you check that ?

AwesamLinux commented on 6 January 2020 at 10:15 pm UTC

I made another attempt with the 5.5-rc5 Kernel and most recent Oibaf. So far it is working without freezes as long as I don't have the Psensor application running.

So you are still having sensors issue with 5.5-rc5? Can you please comment here: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/amd/issues/900
