New driver is nice, but i've noticed some bugs with some NAVI stuff, hopefully they can fix it.

All chromium browsers completely blacked out on it. Older stuff works fine with the driver.

This is due to Chrome's GPU cache. Gotta clear it:

1. Terminate chrome.exe
2. Go here: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\ShaderCache\GPUCache'
3. Erase everything
4. Re-launch chrome.exe

Total crash on World Of Tanks using direct upgrade method. Had to clean everything up with DDU. Now everything works well.

I dislike a lot of things, but thankfully it's minor things. Like, not liking all the big words and icons and not liking Radeon sharpening thing, but I guess since they pushed it to us, it got to mean something, I just put it on 10%. Also not liking Streaming and browser now comes standard, will probably never use both.

Granted everything I dislike is mostly aesthetic, but seriously, I use a two monitor setup and the Radeon setting is uncomfortably huge.

I’ll have to try that. This driver was a nightmare trying to install on my workstation. It failed multiple times. About the only thing I didn’t try was DDU.

Please do so, when I main Nvidia cards, DDU has been my number one method to upgrade driver. I thought using AMD would make things easier, well until the 2020 edition it was.

Nov 19th I received my card. Public have been stable for me since. I only got to try 2020 edition when it went public so my testing is somewhat limited as it came out just after 4pm est yesterday.

Ok, gotcha. The issue is with the current driver, not previous stable. I was confused when you said it worked fine for a month when the driver was released yesterday. :p

Any chromium based browser works fine with 2020 edition. Wow, Overwatch, apex all show slight fps gains as well. I have noticed alot of installer issues on reddit and such tho. I myself have not had issues but I'm probably in the minority at this point in time

Maybe, I got the previous ones re installed, I kind of need my driver installs to just work.

I dont generally have a lot of time to waste with it. though most of the time wasted admittedly was me trying to reinstall then a time or two more after the initial fail.

Yeah, i was refering to... newer... NAVI stuff.
But i asked some friends, seems like its just me so its ok.

Another problem i observed was fan-stopping under OC. Yes, fan can stop while over 60c with an OC profile.
Hopefully they can solve it

I'm using windows 7 and R7 260X, these drivers are the best ever, love the new interface as well. I have no ready boost though, guess i will see that when i buy my new Workstation WX GPU soon.
But so far, no crashes, better performance, stable. Loving them so far.
