Fixed Issues
  • A black screen, system crash or TDR may occur while gaming when performing task switches, enabling performance metrics overlay, or having video content/web browsers open on secondary displays on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products system configurations.
  • Project CARS 3 may experience performance issues when the Radeon Software performance metrics overlay is enabled.
  • Error 1603 may occur during Radeon Software installation on some AMD Ryzen 5 Mobile Processors with Radeon Graphics system configurations.
  • Error 195 may occur during Radeon Software installation on some AMD Ryzen 3 Mobile Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics.
  • On some displays, power cycling the display while Radeon FreeSync is enabled may cause the display to remain black until the system is rebooted or the display is hot plugged.
  • Flickering may occur in Borderlands 3 in some locations when Radeon Boost is enabled.
  • Decoding some HEVC content using AMF Decoder may result in corruption in the clips playback.
  • Performance Tuning fan profiles may sometimes not be applied after loading a saved profile.
  • Radeon Software may sometimes crash or automatically exit when performing a game scan in the Gaming tab.
  • Random color corruption may intermittently occur on some surfaces while playing matchmaking in Counter-Strike : Global Offensive.

Known Issues
  • Project CARS 3 may experience mirror like corruption when using VR during game menus on GCN based Radeon graphics products.

HUH ?, i been using it ever since they added it and never had a single issue with it. I take it this started to be a issue after the 290 series ?.

It's only with the RX5000 cards.

I can confirm that these two have been rectified. I may not need to switch back to the Pro Software if this is consistent.
  • Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.
This still happens if I enable Enhanced Sync though. Affected games are PUBG, VALORANT and some older DX11 titles that I tried.

over the past few months until this version, the last known issue was that they will continue to monitor forums for crashes

does this mean "A black screen, system crash or TDR may occur while gaming when performing task switches, enabling performance metrics overlay, or having video content/web browsers open on secondary displays on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products system configurations." is the final major stability fix?

I started getting random black screens with this driver. The PC just shots off with no warning and boots again. I returned to 20.4.2

UPDATE: it happened with 20.4.2 as well... I've undervolted the GPU and updated my MB BIOS, I'm waiting to see if this helps.

Navi. I think it's a controller bug or something at this point.
