AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.9.2 Drivers

AMD late Thursday released the Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.9.2 beta drivers. These drivers add optimization for "Borderlands 3," with up to 16 percent improvement in frame-rates compared to the older 19.9.1 drivers, as tested with a Radeon RX 5700. The drivers also introduce support for Radeon Image Sharpening on graphics cards based on the "Polaris" architecture (such as RX 580, RX 480, etc), for DirectX 12 and Vulkan games. Among the issues fixed with 19.9.2 are frame-rates getting locked to 30 with V-sync enabled on some displays with 75 Hz refresh-rate set; system instability when watching videos in a web-browser on some machines with RX 5700 series graphics cards; audio in ReLive desktop capture being corrupted; and problems with Enhanced Sync. Grab the driver from the link below.

So can we assume the OSD problems have been fixed or are AMD just failing to mention it again

it really is a shame that they will never fix the stuck uvd clock state on GCN 1 gpu's. I really am an amd fanboy but everytime i think about that makes want to buy nvidia. My gigabyte rx 580 blew up last week and had to go back to the 280x. Ridiculous having to disable everything with hardware acceleration.

Erm webbrowser hardware accel doesnt work on any gpu.

Also report the problem via bug reporting on driver control panel and also on social media

Works in Chrome on the Snapdragon 845 with the Adreno 630 iGPU.

Nothing to complain about either for the RTX 2060 with Firefox 70.

Would be nice to see some increased FPS on the VII even though it's not mentioned; hopefully will see a little boost after upgrading to these at least (and hopefully some other minor annoyances fixed).

Played for about 6 hours, and at 2025/1200 was seeing steady 75-100fps at 2560x1440 at Badass preset settings (minus motion blur) with DX12 turned on.

Edit: Did a before and after with the built in benchmark.

Radeon VII - 2025/1200 +20% pl - 1085mv | ASRock X570 Steel Legend | Corsair 32GB 2666MHz @ 3533MHz 16-20-20-20-40 1.35v | AMD Ryzen 3600X

Ran the benchmark 5 times with each driver to eliminate (as much as 5 runs can) skewed results

Default driver settings - Enhanced Sync on

In-game settings = Badass preset with Motion Blur options turned off - DX12 API @ 2560x1440

19.9.1: Average between all runs : 74.5FPS - 13.44ms frame time

19.9.2: Average between all runs: 83.5FPS - 11.97ms frame time

So it seems as though the drivers helped out on the VII as well, at least in my case with ~13-14% increase in average FPS and a similar number in frame times. Good to see; and the benchmark seemed noticeably smoother on 19.9.2.

Reading Reddit thread there are disappointed Radeon VII users that say no "Radeon Image Sharpening" for their cards. Being a R9 Nano user i'm also disappointed.

What do you mean by OSD? With my RX570, I notice artifacts occasionally while in Windows. No issues at all with games. I used this card without problems in a Mac Pro.
