hi, new rx 580 user here! should i go with recommended only, or recommended+optional drivers? should i install the newest driver everytime a new one comes out?

ID: gsqb4bz

Always always go for the latest driver available. Only reason not to get the latest driver is if it breaks something you're currently using or gives you some other issue.

In general, that rarely happens, so you can use the latest available no worries.

ID: gsq7fls

I've been stable on these for the past few months, so I say go for it (at least the last release was solid for me) other times I'll catch a lot of complaints & just wait 🙂 depends a lot on what you're playing etc, may be little difference anyways.

General question - so unless I see a game that I play mentioned under ‘support for’ or ‘fixed issues’ section for my GPU which’s an RX 580, downloading these driver updates won’t bring any improvement for me, correct?

ID: gspxhv2

Not necessarily true. There could be other tweaks, fixes, or changes that are included with new driver versions that you may not immediately notice.

It's always best to upgrade to the newest, especially if you have any existing issues, because if you report anything the first thing we'll do is ask which version you're on.

ID: gsqbk1y

On the other hand, if you have a working setup and nothing is mentioned for you card, probably less hassle to not update.

ID: gsqbn5v

Not necessarily true. There could be other tweaks, fixes, or changes that are included with new driver versions that you may not immediately notice.

Well maybe you should improve your patch notes so we know what's changed in the update instead of going YOLO and preparing our rectum for unforseen consequences?

ID: gsq1965

I had a black screen and fps issue which was very specific and kept reporting it using the AMD bug tool and to my surprise I am not getting it anymore after the last update. I think they listened and so far I hope it doesn't get broken again.

ID: gsq1dfg

I had black screen issue as well. I uninstalled using AMD cleanup utility and reinstalled, never have seen the black screen since

Thanks for the new driver, could you guys give some love to the 5700XT too please?
It's still crashing like hell for a lot of us:

15 pages of people having crashes on the Microsoft forum Powercolor RX 5700XTRed Devil only stable with 20.9.1 Crashing and Stuttering - Gigabyte RX 5700 XT GAMING OC 8G PC black screens once a day while playing Minecraft. Does not happen on any other application

My 5700XT needs to crash once a day (same for a lot of people, especially in the MS forum), after that no issue at all, I kept the pc on for weeks and after the first crash it never crashes again, new OS and I rebuilt the rest of the pc, still one crash a day, I'm out of ideas.
Feel free to contact me if you want me to run any test

Rage 2, vsync is still broken, very disappointed

ID: gsq0136

Thank you for letting us know 🙂

ID: gsq1lfz

Your welcome I hope gets fixed 🙂

ID: gsqaxd3

Could you check Hades too? Turning on Vsync lowers the framerate to half the refresh rate and flickers. Doesn’t matter if fullscreen or borderless. Already reported through the Bug Tool for 21.3.1

Edit: Might be Freesync related

7 : Anonymous2021/03/29 19:37 ID: gspzu64

This still hasn't fixed the 640x480 resolution that I'm stuck with.

ID: gsqcy9f

Ugh this is a terrible thing to hear? Could a AMD rep look in to this? I filed a bug report about it but nothing?

ID: gsqdrw3

For this exact reason I'm stuck with version 20.7.1...

I was hopeful, based on fixed issues list, that got resolved 🙁 .

I will check tomorrow.

ID: gsqebv4

What's frustrating is it's not even acknowledge in the "Known bugs" list. Is AMD aware of it?

ID: gsq2puy

that sucks m8

Radeon VII still crashes with instant replay on. Hard to say exactly how to replicate it aside from play games (potentially alt-tabbing?) and have instant replay on.

ID: gsq204i

Have you tried clean-installing the driver? After you open the installer, select "Factory Reset" and let it uninstall previous driver and reboot your PC. This may help with fixing some issues.

Otherwise, what do you mean by "Radeon VII crashes?"

ID: gsq6wvp

Driver crashes and, after a while, partially recovers, requiring a reboot to get stability and performance back.

No fresh install recently, however, I did reinstall windows when I got my 5900x in December with 20.12.1. After making sure my card was stable by playing with it for several days, undervolted and whatnot. I turned on instant replay and it worked! Then I realized it wasn't recording because netflix was open in the background... The next day I tested without netflix and experienced a crash after an hour or so (pretty sure it was alt-tabbing in sea of thieves).

I also tried resetting to stock as with the undervolt and relive gpu resources may be used a bit differently. However, I still experienced the same problem. Thus I disabled instant replay and have been running stable ever since.

I just kind of gave up after it was claimed fixed in a patch around this time last year. I tested and maybe it is fixed on gen 1 Vega, but VII still crashed.

/comments/g6t1ih/radeon_software_adrenalin_2020_edition_2042/" class="reddit-press-link" target="_blank" rel="noopener">

I'll see if I can find a good way to recreate it again. It's just a bit annoying going from a computer I only reboot for updates to having to reboot nearly every time I play a game.

Thank you!

Any optimization in fps in general? Also, for Forza Horizon 4, , my 5700 XT crashes a lot in 21.3.1 when compared to 21.2.3. any improvement?

Are they ever going to fix this? Its been like this since 20.11 at least.

11 : Anonymous2021/03/29 22:51 ID: gsqo4km

Why has "instant replay" vanished from my options, that's the question...

12 : Anonymous2021/03/29 18:54 ID: gspu6hh

When will VRR work with LG C9 🙁

ID: gsq8z9a

I've personally given up, and I'm not sure that's on AMD. I imagine LG has to do something about it but they have no incentive to do so they want to sell you the CX not the C9.

13 : Anonymous2021/03/29 19:50 ID: gsq1fv1

I had a very specific black screen and fps issue and the latest update fixed it(or atleast I haven't encountered it so far). Thanks! Hopefully others get their issues resolved too.

Does this fix the current Netflix app problem with multiple monitors? Seriously aggravating that their has been issues with that for years now.

Still no acknowledgment of 21.2.1+ breaking Samsung CRG9... Seriously, I will need to switch to Nvidia just to use my display...

EDIT: I see this sub still retains it's approach to covering all uncomfortable truths...

ID: gspvj8g

CRG9 user here, with no issues on 21.3.1 (and had been on 21.2.1 before). What exactly IS the issue, how are you connected (what cable type) and refresh rate you are trying to use?

ID: gspwo1h

Bear in mind Vega vs Navi also.

ID: gspwlw5

Issue appears on CRG9 with updated firmware (newer than factory one).

Display port. After waking up display from sleep (i.e. but moving mouse), backlights works, but there is no image (black screen). Need to unplug and plug back cable to get image back.

ID: gsptvu1

Did you report this previously? If so, could you please link the post to me?

ID: gspwrzk

I did, even other Vanguard promised to push it further.

Once close to PC I will look for when and how I did report it.

ID: gspxa5m

Nvidia had massive problems with G9, so...

ID: gspv543

Probably cheaper to buy a new monitor.

ID: gsq5boj

Maybe you should be contacting Samsung instead.

ID: gsq9nj1

For perfectly fine display and broken AMD driver?

16 : Anonymous2021/03/29 19:52 ID: gsq1qh5

Awesome, finally getting DXR support for DiRT 5.

ID: gsq3eum

I'm confused by these release notes. I thought Dirt 5 already had ray tracing (shadows at least) and it was enabled by default and we're unable to turn it off?

I've just launched the game and have noticed nothing new.

ID: gsqe7l8

I was also until I got an email from AMD:

Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 21.3.2 will offer support for Codemasters’ high octane racing sim when the title receives an update for Microsoft DXR support on March 30.

Tomorrow 😉

17 : Anonymous2021/03/29 20:25 ID: gsq62vt

Any chance the random stutter on Dirt Rally 2.0 is fixed? Every driver after 20.4.2 does it. Example around the 1:20 mark

ID: gsqaz0o

I reported this issue a while ago. What's fixed it for me is turning on resizable BAR/SAM if you have that available. Now it runs perfectly for me (3700x/RX6800)

ID: gsqevxj

Sadly, don't have resizable BAR available.

Have the issues with Vega/Navi and older Cryengine games like Crysis 3 been fixed?

Any performance increase for Outriders or fixes?

Black Screen with Free sync is fixed? Niiiice. Have to try that.

21 : Anonymous2021/03/29 20:50 ID: gsq9c0h

havnt installed it yet, but does this update fix the low fps / not 3d mode? 21.3.1 introduces with some games - e.g. Warthunder? /

23 : Anonymous2021/03/29 20:53 ID: gsq9qlv

I'll give it a shot tonight after work. Been having black screen issues with my 5600xt on ark, warthunder, conan and others with current drivers, temp fix for me has been running 05/2020 adrenaline and drivers.

24 : Anonymous2021/03/29 22:04 ID: gsqigzn

Update us after testing it! 🙂

25 : Anonymous2021/03/29 21:03 ID: gsqayil

I'm assuming there's no need for optimizations for the Kingdom Hearts PC ports coming out tomorrow, since I don't see it listed?

26 : Anonymous2021/03/29 21:14 ID: gsqccvy

So when 21.3.1 came out, it broke Halo MCC for me. Made FPS wildly unstable in Halo 4 multiplayer. Previously I would be running totally stable fps of upwards of 144fps, now it fluctuates between 30 and 100, but never stays stable for long. Had to roll back to 21.2.3, which is stable.

Just tested and 21.3.2 has shown the same issue with MCC. Submitted bug reports for both driver versions. For reference, 6900XT with 5900X running Windows 10 on a 1440p Free sync monitor with a 30-90hz range. No difference in FPS behavior by changing any settings, including disabling free sync.

Anyone else playing Final Fantasy XIV getting endless DirectX error driver timeouts?

28 : Anonymous2021/03/29 21:44 ID: gsqg227

GTA V - Sapphire Pulse RX 5600XT, below 30 fps, random stutter and vsync not working on 1080p

29 : Anonymous2021/03/29 22:07 ID: gsqixvo

Did you update the driver using the factory reset option or DDU?

30 : Anonymous2021/03/29 22:21 ID: gsqklui

Installed twice, Factory Reset and DDU and the issue persists. And this issue happened in the previous driver 21.3.1

31 : Anonymous2021/03/29 21:51 ID: gsqgyzd

Can you optimise the drivers for Valheim ? I have a lot of driver crashes with this game..

32 : Anonymous2021/03/29 21:58 ID: gsqhrj3

I have my pc for almost a year now, but since this update, while playing cod warzone my pc restarted/crashed twice. First was a freezing crash, i had to manually press restart button on my pc case. 2nd was a sudden restart i see a whea error in my logs, whea logger id 18 processor-apic-id 13 to be exact. I play warzone everyday and never had this problem. Seems like the update fucked my cpu or ram xmp?

I have a ryzen 5 3600 and a pulse 5700xt with 3200mhz lpx ram.

33 : Anonymous2021/03/29 22:05 ID: gsqilcx

Do you have any OC applied to your CPU, or RAM?

34 : Anonymous2021/03/29 22:34 ID: gsqm3uu

Yes only xmp on ram. But it was fine for almost 12 months. I think this update is just not good. Many people seem to have issues or decrease performance even on the new cpus and gpus

35 : Anonymous2021/03/29 22:06 ID: gsqit7z

I wonder if this driver version stabilizes Fortnite performance. I’m running a 6800XT + 3800x and I can get mostly smooth 144+ FPS, however, there are some noticeable and pretty jarring FPS dips. No matter what gfx settings I go for, it still stutters like crazy!

36 : Anonymous2021/03/29 22:15 ID: gsqjva7

Any planned enhancements for Cyberpunk ray tracing driver side? The cyberpunk update just hit today, but the performance on my 6800xt even with the newest updates is pretty meh.

If an issue is listed under "Known/Fixed" it has been acknowledged from software teams that there may be a fix.

I cannot give further details for Destiny 2 but it's still under investigation.

I've still been having issues in CS:GO, Vsync's been broken ever since I got my Vega FE installed and it's still not working with my new RX 6700 XT.

Hoping this'll get fixed soon, this is a huge eSports title after all. No matter what options I try in radeon software Vsync will never turn on.

41 : Anonymous2021/03/29 23:08 ID: gsqq2pd

Just 2 cents to your post: don't use VSync, specially in a game like CS:GO, were people want the lowest input lag possible.

42 : Anonymous2021/03/29 23:10 ID: gsqq81e

Yeah, I know that and right now with it broken I'm forced to have it off anyway

Doesn't really change the fact that Vsync's been broken in every source engine game though
