AMD today released version 20.2.2 of their Radeon Adrenalin Edition driver suite. The new version brings with it support for the launch of Zombie Army 4: Dead War, so users can experience the latest and greatest performance available for AMD graphics cards on the new release.Perhaps more importantly, the new release also features a number of fixes for Black Screen errors in a number of scenarios and games, of which much has already been written over the internet. There are still a number of instances where black screens can occur listed on AMD's "Known Issues" checklist for this driver release, however, so make sure to check the release notes to see if this driver looks to fix your particular scenario. Of course, you're likely always better off updating to this latest driver version.



DOWNLOAD: AMD Radeon Adrenalin Edition 20.2.2 Drivers



Fixed Issues
  • Performing a task switch with some Radeon Software features enabled or some third-party applications with hardware acceleration running in the background may cause a system hang or black screen.
  • Improvements have been made that allow for more responsive fan ramp up or fan ramp down times on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products.
  • Performance Metrics Overlay and Radeon WattMan incorrectly report lower than expected clock speeds on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products during gaming workloads.
  • When Instant Replay is enabled, a TDR or black screen may occur when launching games or applications.
  • A black screen may occur when toggling HDR on in the game settings of Battlefield V.
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may experience an application hang or black screen during certain parts of the game or intermittently during gameplay.
  • Some video content in Chrome may appear as a black screen or be unresponsive on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products when hardware acceleration is enabled.
  • Metro Exodus may experience an application hang or TDR when choosing some specific dialogue prompts in the Sam's Story DLC.
  • Grand Theft Auto V may experience an application crash when invoking Radeon Software's overlay with third party OSD applications running.
  • Monster Hunter World : Iceborne may experience intermittent crashes while idle or on the character creation screen.
  • Some games colors may appear washed out when HDR mode has been enabled in game and Windows on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products
  • After a Factory Reset installation with the 'Keep My Settings' option chosen, Instant Replay could fail to function if it was enabled in the previous Radeon Software installation.
  • When invoking Radeon Software's overlay while a game is open users may observe flickering in the game or in the Radeon Software interface.
  • Radeon Software may experience a crash and error message when locking Windows or performing a sleep or hibernate with the Radeon Software Streaming tab open.
  • A loss of display with working audio may be experienced on a limited number of displays when performing a mode change on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
  • Radeon Software may fail to launch if Radeon Software's overlay is disabled and a game is running in the background.
  • Battlefield V may experience an application hang or TDR after extended periods of play.
  • Some Origin games may fail to be detected or may detect the incorrect game title in Radeon Software.
  • Some productivity applications are being detected and listed in the Radeon Software games tab.
  • The Radeon Chill hotkey could sometimes continue to remain enabled once the user has removed or disabled the hotkey.
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 may exhibit blocky textures on snow covered terrain.
  • After resuming from sleep, Chrome may experience an application crash if video content was previously playing on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products.
  • Radeon FreeSync status in Radeon Software may sometimes fail to update when enabling or disabling the feature through the display itself.
  • Fortnite may experience an application crash on Radeon RX 500 series Hybrid Graphics system configurations.

Known Issues
  • Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Enhanced Sync has been temporarily disabled from the gaming profile and any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.
  • Performance Metrics Overlay and Radeon WattMan 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.
  • DOOM may experience an intermittent system hang or application crash during gameplay.
  • Desktop cursor may intermittently remain visible after toggling Radeon Software's overlay in some games. A workaround is to bring up the game menu or task switch to refresh the cursor.
  • A system crash or hang may occur when running the Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers benchmark.
  • The Gaming tab in Radeon Software may display some folder locations appearing as games.
  • Radeon Software may open with an inconsistent window size or may not keep its previously set size when opened.
  • Modifying the HDMI Scaling slider may cause FPS to become locked to 30.
  • Some games may exhibit stutter intermittently during gameplay on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
  • Some games may experience stutter while using Instant Replay or third-party applications that stream or perform screen capture. A potential workaround is to disable these features or applications while gaming.
  • Although Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.2.2 resolves many black screen issues, AMD is aware that some users may still experience black screen or system hang issues during extended periods of gameplay. AMD will continue to monitor and investigate reports of these issues closely.

Important Notes
This optional release of Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition is targeted towards resolving recent important issues identified by our community. We will be closely monitoring feedback on the release, and encourage users to submit issues they encounter at www.amd.com/report.

Poll is awkward. If user owns 5000 series amd gpu, and you are asking strictly about 5000 amd's gpu how the third option makes any sense? Even if user has multiple PCs with amd and nvidia gpus third option still makes no sense as you are asking about experience with 5000 amd gpus.

In the same way I can say this driver didn't fix anything to me because as user of radeon rx580 i didn't have black screen issues in the first place. Where is option in poll for me?

Yeah, the polls statistc will spitt out, that everybody not taking place in the poll will use below radeon 5000 series and users of intel graphics.
The poll only targets radeon 5000 series users and interested geforce users.
btw. a lot of non radeon 5000 series users including myself had blackscreen issues, so i will test thisone but i´m pessimistic

My Vega 64 system had the black screen issue only during the first 8 minutes or so after initial post but... only on the original adrenalin release. Every subsequent update I didn't have an issue with. On my 5700xt system never experienced it whatsoever.

Depends really on use case and software environtment it seems. I haven't had a problem with my new RX 5600 XT in the first 3 weeks, but then I had two black screen crashes basically on idle within 4 days.
Due to work related stuff I had to open up Chrome along side Firefox with hw acceleration enabled and after 2-3 minutes swapping tabs on Chrome I had a black screen crash and the computer restarded after a couple of seconds just like a BSOD.

Then had the same thing happen when I had Discord open and just did a right click on my Steam tray icon, menu still came up. But right after that it hardlocked the PC. After that I disabled hardware acceleration in Chrome, FF, Discord, even Steam. Even uninstalled f.lux thinking there might be some compatibility problems too.

Now with the new drivers I turned everything back on again, bar reinstalling f.lux. Will report back if I run into problems again.

It's almost Spring 2020 and you still can't play 2016 DOOM on a Navi gpu... ugh... I'm going nvidia next round sorry everyone. I tried to give them a chance but that is insane.

What if the expected to launch soon Navi 21 turns out to be almost 100% faster than the RX 5700XT, thus obliterating everything including heavily overclocked RTX 2080 Ti ?

Will the drivers be as problematic?

Sadly, if so, yeah, pass.

It's absurd the number of things I've had to fix myself. Case in point: I pointed out the fast sync issue and even identified why it is happening (certain navi spinning and/or bios revisions don't support the FW_DSTATE Power management flag) like, a month ago. It's written here in one of the 5700 XT threads. AMD is just now acknowledging it's an issue, and their fix? To just turn the thing off? That's laughable. *I* literally did better than that with a simple softpowerplay table.

They need to try better. I'm loading these, but hopefully they won't bite me.

AMD's GPU driver team need to hire you froggy, just like their CPU team need to hire 1musmus for the RyZen Dram Calculator.

But man, it has been what, 6 or7 ? months since Navi launch and they are still working on getting the GPU to work normally? That is kinda rough TBH.

And soon we will have the elite red guards here defending and praising RTG's every move. I mean fixing things is better than doing nothing.

What could be the cause? Bad team atmosphere there, too much stress, low salaries, too much work?

If they don't pay well, it's normal, not absurd, actually many businesses today are operating with similar results.

  • Some games may exhibit stutter intermittently during gameplay on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
Anyone have a list of which games these are? I can test when I get home later.

Could you provide more details on that? As i hear about it for the first time and i'm genuinely curious.
DOOM may experience an intermittent system hang or application crash during gameplay.
I was able to play DOOM (2016) on a previous Adrenalin 19 driver though, so not sure what they did to break this.

It's got to be some kind of spining issue. Especially with how inconsistent it is. There has to be a silent revision, or something, and I really don't like the hiding go on around it.

Oh, and AMD can send me money any time, but I'd rather they spent it fixing their products. I can't be hired, got other obligations to my family business.

I was able to play DOOM (2016) on a previous Adrenalin 19 driver though, so not sure what they did to break this.
In a tight spot, the Radeon Pro drivers are basically the Adrenalin 19 drivers with bugfixes. They might work.

EDIT: In case your wondering what snapped inside me today to rant about this, it isn't that *I* can't handle the problems. It's that most can't, and AMD is killing itself not acting on this faster.

RX 5700 XT is around RTX 2070 Super!



WTFtech seriously??

From TPU's own latest GPU performance summary charts:

5700XT 183%
2070Super 196%

So 13% difference is the same tier now I guess?

All YouTube videos show the same results - RX 5700 XT is in line with RTX 2070 Super / RTX 2080.

I don't know why TPU's results are so low for the Radeon - can be anything - software settings, Windows version, drivers version too old, etc.

It's almost Spring 2020 and you still can't play 2016 DOOM on a Navi gpu... ugh... I'm going nvidia next round sorry everyone. I tried to give them a chance but that is insane.

Isn't there better performance in Vulkan mode than OpenGL for that game IIRC?

I think AMD's eternally poopy OpenGL drivers could be the culprit there. Just switch render modes.

I believe so. I've always had better performance on Vulkan over OpenGL on both my 580 and 5700 XT. Haven't had any reason to switch back to OpenGL since changing to Vulkan the day I bought the game.

All YouTube videos show the same results - RX 5700 XT is in line with RTX 2070 Super / RTX 2080.

I don't know why TPU's results are so low for the Radeon - can be anything - software settings, Windows version, drivers version too old, etc.
This all depends on the games used for testing. DMC5 and BFV are heavily optimized on AMD cards, for example.

This is why I prefer purchasing video cards based on what games I plan to play or what engines they are/will be using instead of an overall/relative performance chart.

I think AMD's eternally poopy OpenGL drivers could be the culprit there. Just switch render modes.
As of today, it is recommended to use the Vulkan renderer regardless of GPU since that was developed more.

In a tight spot, the Radeon Pro drivers are basically the Adrenalin 19 drivers with bugfixes. They might work.

EDIT: In case your wondering what snapped inside me today to rant about this, it isn't that *I* can't handle the problems. It's that most can't, and AMD is killing itself not acting on this faster.
If I could use the Radeon Pro drivers on my RX 5700 XT, I would.

It's the way forward anyways, which is why I honestly don't care so much that AMDs opengl is bad. They have much bigger things to fix first.

Back on topic, driver is fresh installed. Lets see what happens with this vs the Radeon Pro driver I was running before.

Could you provide more details on that? As i hear about it for the first time and i'm genuinely curious.
scroll up to post 1 of this thread... under the known issues list... sigh...

I've had no issues playing DOOM on my 5700 XT
good for you but if there are opengl issues on a game from 2016, then i imagine many older games that never get tested, that use opengl will have issues too... the older games can't switch over to Vulkan...

Yes, i saw changelog but did you try it on your own gpu and game didn't launch for you? If yes then did you try on other driver version or have you tried to troubleshoot by following error code which you can find in event viewer? Changelog says "doom may..." so it means it doesn't have to have problems but they may happen.

Err, try out those games first before concluding that OpenGL in the driver is broken. The OpenGL renderer for Doom (2016) hasn't been updated for a while. id concentrated on improving Vulkan since thats solely used for id Tech 6 (Wolfenstein II, Youngblood, Saber3D engine) games now.
