Is My Vega 54 Broken?

Is My Vega 54 Broken?

I recently built a computer with a vega 54, here are the specs:

Ryzen 5 2600x
Powercolor Red Devil RX Vega 54 8GB
2x8GB Team Group T-Force Vulcan 2400Mhz
Biostar B350GT3
Corsair TX 650M 80 plus gold (650W)

The card was working fine during 1,5 days. I was playing rise of tomb raider and skyrim on max settings without a problem. After these days I installed GTA V and played it for around 2,5 hours (the gpu was around 65-70 degrees). After this the computer froze and I had to reboot the computer. I tried playing Skyrim after that and after 5 minutes the pc froze again. After I tried to run Tomb Raider but got the following message:

“A problem ocurred with your display driver. Your system may not have enough resources to run the game at the selected settings. You can retry using the same settings, or adjust them to lower settings. Make sure you have the latest drivers for your video hardware, and try rebooting your system to help clear up any issues.


I tried reinstalling the drivers and it didnt work. I reinstalled windows 10 from scratch and the drivers and got the same issue. I also tried drivers that are a bit older, but the problem still persists.

I also tried to fix the card in the case, because I though it would maybe be loose. That also did not help.

Now I am starting to think that the card is broken (I don’t know how it broke playing GTA V).

The PSU also does not seem to be a problem, since it is a good one (80 plus gold).
