Hmm, that's probably the issue then. VRFB rotation is very heavy on the
memory bandwidth, and is generally a very easy way to get sync lost errors.

My opinion is that VRFB should only be used when you know your system
will handle it fine with the clock rates and bandwidth usage you have
for your use cases.
