My system is an AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT with a Radeon RX5700XT GPU and 32gb of RAM and I have been experiencing the VCRUNTIME140.dll CTD intermittently since late December. Prior to that I had no issues whatsoever.
I’ve tried all the “fixes” various people have suggested over the months, some seem to work for a while but eventually the CTDs return. It’s led me to believe they’re all coincidences and nothing is really addressing the issues we’re seeing.
Today I ran a flight at HIGH settings while continually monitoring the Radeon performance monitor. I was hoping to run it until a CTD but inevitably today nothing untoward happened. I run my setup stock, with no overclocking or messing around and this is what I found.
The GPU was running pegged at 99% throughout, temps were reasonable at a constant 77c while pulling a max 180w off my 750w PSU
The CPU was in comparison, idling at 15~25% according to the Radeon monitor and the RAM was occupied up to a maximum of 51%.
I understand that there has been a bit of a conspiracy theory regarding AMD drivers but are these results reasonable? I would have hoped the GPU would have been slightly less of the huge bottleneck it appears to be? Might it also end up being the root of the issues I’ve been experiencing?
