AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 20.7.1 Drivers

AMD late Thursday released the latest version of Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 graphics drivers. Version 20.7.1 beta adds optimization for "Disintegration." The software also introduces an improved AMD Bug Report Tool. A number of bugs were fixed with this release including stuttering observed on machines running RX 5000 series GPUs with Radeon Replay enabled; "Vega" based graphics cards experiencing performance loss with Performance Metrics enabled; an error switching between apps while previewing your stream; custom fan- and clock- tuning settings not applying in Radeon Performance tuning tab or retaining after reboot; and display resolution failing to stretch with display scaling enabled in CS:GO. Bugs related to Valorant, DOTA2, and DOOM Eternal were also fixed. Grab the drivers from the link below.

  • Custom fan and clock tuning may sometimes reset to default when changes are applied in the Radeon Performance Tuning tab.
  • Custom tuning profiles may fail to load or apply correctly after some system boots.
  • Display resolution may fail to stretch to full panel when the display scaling feature is enabled for Counter-Strike : Global Offensive.
  • The game compatibility tab in Radeon Software may sometimes show incorrect GPU information for populated games.
  • An error message indicating "Oops something went wrong" may sometimes appear when clicking on the game compatibility tab.
  • Valorant may be detected or listed incorrectly as League of Legends in the gaming tab in Radeon Software.

  • After using the DirectML Media Filters in Radeon Software, graphics memory may no longer report accurately in Radeon Software performance section or may report still in use.
  • Enabling Radeon Image Sharpening may cause colors to appear washed out when HDR is enabled.
Known Issues

  • Performance Metrics Overlay and the Performance Tuning tab incorrectly report higher than expected idle clock speeds on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products. Performance and power consumption are not impacted by this incorrect reporting.
  • With HDR enabled, Windows desktop may experience flickering, and performing a task switch while in a game may cause colors to become washed out or over saturated.
  • YouTube playback may become frozen with Microsoft Edge player and Chrome when played on an extended display on some AMD Ryzen 7 3000 series and AMD Ryzen 4000 series APU system configurations.
  • Banners in Radeon Software may sometimes fail to show, and navigation buttons for those banners may fail to work.
  • Modifying the HDMI Scaling slider may cause FPS to become locked to 30.

Switch the audio source to proper sound device. Realtek?

It works now... see his other thread (and why we don't make mentions in multiple threads...lol).

No it's just random, it worked before with the old driver, then it doesn't, with the new ones it didn't work the now it works.
Just checked your system specs, you have one of those 24" 4k, I had one of those I could distinguish between 4k and 1800p/1440p, the same for you?

4K at anything less than 27" is silly IMO... everything is just too small and scaling borks the work area. I can EASILY distinguish between the resolutions. They are both not as 'crisp'. On a 24" DPI is fine for 1080p/1440 resolutions so it may be more difficult to see.

No... annoyingly the problem still persists, just less frequently...

You forgot the Scale and layout settings which reminds you the Recommended setting. In my case it is 200%.

The difference between 4K and any worse resolution is day and night.

4K at 24" is beautiful, it's like the best smartphone screen with 800 ppi.

For my 28" 4K UHD it's 150%.

You guys are blind, I used 100% scaling for 24, 27 and 32" monitors, I love pixels, but it turns out I love hz even more.

It depends on the resolution... I assume you are talking 4K UHD? I can use 100% scaling at 2560x1440 and those sizes... 1080p too... 4K... nope.

You say I'm blind... but with glasses I'm 2020 so.......... no. lol

I prefer that they are invisible. Something that only the Retina displays achieved somewhere around 10 years ago.
Unfortunately, if you are running a 15-inch display, or larger, with 1080p resolution, you will see them quite clearly.
