Are you kidding? I've played dozens of hours, no hiccups. Runs amazing.
then why is listed as an official issue in original post from AMD?

Thx for the info, now screenshot your task manager.
No need, because I honestly don't care and am pretty dang sure I'll find some driver processes.. If that really bothers you, use Radeon Pro.

Well, I just narrowed my 5700XT instability to the use of riser card on my new case (RVZ03) and outside of one time the Radeon software crashed because of accidental power reset, all is good. However I do wonder why they recommend to disable enhanced sync. Oh well...

Black screens, I think. It's going to take a long time to get it sorted so disabling Enhanced Sync is a temporary fix.

He's using the OpenGL renderer, although now the bug mentioned above affects the Vulkan renderer too.

I didn't know you can use the Radeon Pro drivers. I wonder if the support for OpenCL is better than in Adrenalin.

Ah well, I just started to uninstall Adrenalin 20.2.2 now and am downloading Enterprise 20.Q1.1 just to try this out. There isn't an equivalent to the RX 5700 XT, so I just chose the W5700 which is basically a non-XT. I don't really game that much with the 5700 XT and mostly use it for OpenCL stuff where-in I use the 2080 Super for higher FPS/CUDA.

Curious regarding your application of OpenCL on Navi. Wasn’t it recently mentioned that Navi’s OpenCL implementation is broken or something?

A colleague of mine purchased a MI25 for her ML work, ended up using more time solving hardware lockups than put it to actual work. It was a huge headache for her. Way cheaper than its Tesla counter parts though

It's like these drivers for Navi are written from empty sheet by interns in India who receive $530 per month for their job.

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.
That is the majority of 5700 series owners, they haven't experienced any such issues.

They fixed that in some early January release.

In other news, I just got a crash. Not fixed entirely, I guess. Back to Radeon Pro drivers...

Restart your PC, and try again.

Not sure what exactly you are asking.

To get the Radeon Pro Drivers just claim you have a Radeon Pro equivalent card in driver selection. Say one of the W5000's and it will give you them for WIndows 7. They install fine. For some reason they only list them automatically for consumer cards on Windows 10.

This is where you turn the junk off, or so I tried. It may be running in the background, but it has no performance impact or net traffic so hell if I care.
It's a overlooked part of coding. It was a risk I took providing the links to the other user, thank God they work in W7.

Yeah keep up the good work R-T-B. At least when it comes to CPU's we have innovation finally thanks to AMD. Intel was becoming very stagnant and lazy. I think AMD also lit a little fire, though not as big under NVIDIA's butt. Will be nice to see some next gen hardware this Fall. I'm hoping for 20% gains or more on the GPU's at every budget level. Maybe I am being too optimistic? I feel like there has been some technology breakthrough though, so hopefully not.

You and mde both. Not to change subject but I'll add, I honestly believe ampere and big navi will compete with each other.

Maybe not. There are some hints that Ampere is a compute-oriented micro-architecture and gaming cards won't be released at this time.
That will be Hopper's job next year.

So, once Navi 2nd generation launches, it perhaps won't have competition.

Yep, kinda suggests something is up doesn't it? :laugh:

If you say so. One of those manages power management states. But sure.

There is some bloat in the standard driver, maybe even some in Radeon Pro. But no more than modern NVIDIA, so not sure what you were expecting.

If you say so. One of those manages power management states. But sure.

There is some bloat in the standard driver, maybe even some in Radeon Pro. But no more than modern NVIDIA, so not sure what you were expecting.

Power management is done by hardware and software on the GPU. And I'm the ignorant one? Hoo-boy! :laugh:
Those chokes and resistors aren't there to make it look pretty. What does the card firmware do then?
The cards work fine with only the main driver installed; Better, even. Let me be quiet before AMD catches onto that.

There is more than modern NVIDIA, way more. NVIDIA doesn't have Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram profile-crawling folders and its own browser that can sneakily connect to the internet.
At least if they do, you can opt out of installing it.

Heh, I've only been hacking the power management part of the softpowerplay tables with mitigations for bugs in the driver AND firmware, what do I know?

Neither does Radeon Pro. Also, those profiles do nothing if you don't link your account. That's kinda the idea.

Accept pmu command and implement them, mostly, as well as contain the stock sppt.

Nvidia's Geforce Experince, and telemetry integrated into the driver? There's no opting out of the telemetry with the drivers unless you disagree with the EULA or utilize the Microsoft Basic Display driver.

Why would @W1zzard waste his time with creating, and maintaining NVCleanstall if it doesn't serve a purpose?

You don't have to install "Geforce Experience" to get the NV driver working. With AMD, you don't get the choice to NOT install their version of it, which is very invasive.

I had options for turning all that stuff off in the NVIDIA driver I installed. No telemetry, none of that.
