Added Vulkan Support
  • VK_EXT_host_query_reset
    Allows resets of queries from the host, rather than on the GPU.

  • VK_AMD_display_native_hdr
    Exposes FreeSync2 capabilities for improved HDR support.
  • VK_EXT_separate_stencil_usage
    Separates the usage flags for depth/stencil aspects of a depth/stencil image making it possible to restrict/expand the usage relative to the depth aspect.
  • VK_KHR_uniform_buffer_standard_layout
    Provides more flexible alignment for uniform buffers, enabling among other things, the usage of std430 layouts in Vulkan.

Performance Metrics Overlay and Radeon WattMan gauges may experience inaccurate fluctuating readings on AMD Radeon VII.

This bug exists since launch of Radeon VII. Almost four months old problem. :shadedshu:
I wonder when are they fixing this.

Hopefully we will see some stability fixes incoming at some point. I bought a Vega 64 early this year and have been having little issues ever since. First R6 Siege was artifacting like crazy, which they have fixed. Now XCom 2 is artifacting and crashing on me :(

My first AMD card since the 4000 series is not giving me a good experience.

Litzner, I can tell you that isn't an AMD/ATi issue. Your driver install is corrupt. Properly remove and reinstall the driver. I have been playing a heavily modded XCOM 2 WOTC for months now. No issue whatsoever. Well, save for the crappy load times that XCOM is notorious for.
