RX 5700 XT - drivers and PhoenixMiner

note: I have XT version (or RX5700)

I guess that many asks for this, but Ive tried those:

  • HiveOS stable / beta / vega …
  • AMD driver 19.20,19.30, 19.50 …

but I was unable to make it working.
Therefor Im asking for working combo. Like:

  • what HiveOS image should I use? (someone is suggesting: (kernel 5.0.21-hiveos-beta with AMD drivers 19.30).

  • is this image for ALL version of XT or some version are not supported?

  • driver? Should I use those at image, OpenCL, oficial, from installer, which version?

  • miner (for ETH): Phoenix 5.0? That should be fine, but I couldnt make it working coz drivers issue.

  • OC. Any tips there? vlt / mem / core / fan … temperature limit?

I got RX 5700 XT xx-xx-xxxx, or even with memory details, but miner didnt started there (Phoenix, EthMiner). amd-info returns details.


Do you use any PCI-e spliter ?
What MB are you using ?

No PCIe splitters. Each of 6 card goes directly to MB.

how do you upgrade driver inside os ? a new driver for ubuntu is out…

I tried 19.30, 19.50, 20.10 drivers.
Installed with amd_install.sh (script from forum), and also directly with official amd installer (as amdgpu, amdgpu-pro, pal,legacy, headless, …). Yeap, nothing. There for Im asking (and Im not alone as I can see).

How … uninstall, stop:

amdgpu-uninstall -y
amdgpu-pro-uninstall -y
systemctl stop hivex
killall xinit
miner stop

Then install (this is eg 20.10):

cd amdgpu-pro-20.10-1048554-ubuntu-18.04
./amdgpu-pro-install -y
dpkg -l amdgpu-pro

i  amdgpu-pro                       20.10-1048554         amd64                 Meta package to install amdgpu Pro components.

… installed, not working.

im having a similar issue on one of rx 5700 rigs but the other 2 are good with 19.30 drivers but i cant seem to get the 19.50 drivers working on any rx 5700(xt) rig
To get the other rigs to work I did a fresh usb with the beta hiveos image but i still get a bunch of powerplay errors in the console although they seem to be mining fine with no incorrect shares

Try the beta image again, I had the same issue but the beta image worked fine.

Reinstall amdgpu-pro packages with OpenCL: https://amdgpu-install.readthedocs.io/en/latest/install-installing.html#installing-the-pro-variant

Hello, well I did tried that already (Jun 22 post).
$ ./amdgpu-pro-install -y --opencl=pal,legacy
$ ./amdgpu-pro-install -y --opencl=pal,legacy --headless

And also default:
$ ./amdgpu-pro-install -y

So, all 3 variants.
