Support For
  • DIRT 5 Energy Content Pack
Fixed Issues
  • HDMI Audio Devices may fail to install on Radeon RX 400 and Radeon RX 500 series graphics products.
  • Hot plugging HDMI TV displays in multi monitor system configurations may sometimes cause a system crash or hang.
  • An application crash or hang may occur in Substance Painter on Radeon RX 6000 series graphics products.
  • A system crash or hang may occur on the HP Reverb G2 when connected to Radeon RX 6900 series graphics products.
  • Radeon Software may sometimes fail to gather the latest available Radeon Software versions when performing or checking for updates.
Known Issues
  • A system hang or crash may be experienced when upgrading Radeon Software while an Oculus VR headset is connected to your system on Radeon GCN graphics products. A temporary workaround is to disconnect the headset before install.
  • AMD is currently investigating end user reports that Radeon Software may sometimes have higher than expected CPU utilization, even when a system is at idle. Users who are experiencing this issue are encouraged to file a bug report in Radeon Software.
  • Brightness flickering may intermittently occur in some games or applications when Radeon FreeSync is enabled, and the game is set to use borderless fullscreen.
  • 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.

gcn1 probably still bugged, from a few versions back i have to disable ULPS with afterburner so GPU usage isnt bugged at 64% or 99% when idling and degraded performance when playing games

As a long time user I still marvel at how quickly AMD drivers are updated these days.
