Gigabyte RX560 with Micron memory
#1
Hi,

I have 4 of these cards, two have Micron memory, and two have Hynix.

When overclocking memory, I can find max overclock on Hynix by watching for memory errors,
but Micron based cards never show any errors...they just crash at some point.

Could it be that HWinfo does't read it correctly, or maybe Micron based cards for some
reason don't report errors?

GPU Memory Error reporting should depend on memory controller only, not on modules.
So it's possible that Micron memories operate stable in terms of correctable memory errors until they reach a point which causes the whole GPU/driver to crash.

I thought so, but still strange that Hynix starts to give memory errors at around 1980MHz, while Micron doesn't show single memory error
ever at 2200MHz, although it sometimes crash at as low as 2150 (I guess it depends a bit on temperature, pretty hot here these days)
