its never just the driver.
So is anyone else getting slow down performance when turning on performance overlay ?
i went back to the old drivers, but wanted to see who else is having that issue.
This is a known issue being investigated and hopefully fixed soon.
I had the TDR mentioned on the notes.
But, other than that, been a good driver.
Clearly, and good luck tracking it down.
Quite simple to in actual fact.
Download sysinternals NotMyFault,
bind to a macro key
reproduce the issue
press the macro key
system will crash, make its kernel dump file and reboot and that can be sent on over to the folks at sysnative forums for analysis.
What it sounds like is another case of AMD enabling new video decoding methods that navi "should" support but might be busted in the chip.
like that time nvidia released geforce 6 with broken purevideo
Sounds interesting, will give it a go.
And most likely you are right there, what is odd to me that others didn't have that issue. At least on our small "local" scale. Need to check Gigabyte forums, if anyone has the same issue - it will be there.
I'm not sure if i should snerk there or just agree cool like.
I don't think there's much doubt about that.
There's reports from months back about the state of Navi and VCN having VP9 playback support but losing something like 2/3rds of all frames over said playback or worse particularly for the supposed support of 4k media or higher.
(Ehh what was it 2000 dropped frames of 3000 total or something.)
Video hardware accelerated playback in browsers has been rocky since launch and a few drivers even went with disabling hardware acceleration though it's now back and so are reports about software like Discord and browsers like Chrome hitting driver crashes.
AMD's ReLive has gone since the start of Adrenalin 2020 with multiple problem reports and little response from AMD, think there's one poster from the Reddit community who sent almost daily issue reports on some of these problems but while he got responses from NVIDIA he never got anything from AMD nor were the issues ever resolved. (Going by Crosire and the ReShade VLK AMD issue and workaround it's much the same there, initial response about acknowledging the issue and then completely silent despite more inquiries and the issue is still there.)
Recording problems, stuttering and issues with the overlay itself and it's problematic quality compared to third party software like OBS and maybe a plugin or two but I think the main AMD one ended up being dropped also from issues surrounding well I think it was communication but I would need to look up the specifics again.
Navi also has VCN 2.0 but no details on what that changed and the supported feature list is identical to VCN 1.0
GCN up to Vega use VCE at whatever version that would be 4.0 or 5.0 but effectively similar but lacking VP9 hardware decoding capabilities and no 4k support I think? (Might just be VP9 4k though.)
Media Player Classic added some other driver workaround a short while ago and Chromium and Firefox probably have their own workarounds too, unsure on the Linux driver situation though a few issues like the problematic mouse cursor responsiveness is also found there with it's own workaround so there's issues here too.
Unsure on what the 5600's and 5500's have in terms of silicon improvements I recall seeing and hearing a few examples on what had been changed but it's nothing major, possibly another thing the refresh could update but probably more likely to be overhauled for Navi 20 like for example Video Core Next 3.0 instead.
What files should I rename in this driver, to not have all the bloatsoftware?
same as usual just delete cnext folder in program files/amd right after install
FIFA 20 on all previous drivers 220~fps
20.5.1 118 fps with 20 percent gpu usage
slower on timespy too
Same here then i used update assistant and after installed the drivers (without internet) no issues so far.
I've just installed the driver upgrading from 20.4.2 and got Error 207 i've got it working by uninstalling the old driver before and now it's working without problems for the past hours
but on windows 1909
After 2004 update 20.5.1 install went smooth for me but didnt test games or run any benchmark yet. Tuning is the only thing that bothers me becouse amd still didnt fix wattman and its profiles to work normaly.
Hmm so problem with fifa is low clocks, it wont budge past 800mhz and if i force clocks it doesnt make a difference to frames
gonna try a factory reset but by heck why the downgrade in perf again
Btw u just downloaded the installer for 2004 with the media creation tool and did the upgrade manually ?
I haven't played anything either, just watched yt & netflix (using the new edge) without any problems yet (even it's mentioned in the changelog)
we have to install this drivers before or after the 2004 update?
Used an update assistant from their site. Then it saw there is an update available on 1909.
I'll check later today ^^
