    crash after crash with this driver. 5700 XT. Rolled back to 20.4.1 with minor black screen bugs that can be fixed with windows, ctrl, shift and B

    Like many said countless times --- check your OC and the whole system's stability. See Undying's posts last page as an example. What was a "stable OC" with 20.5.1 and earlier needs to be re-checked for stability.... kinda for me obvious with every driver release... but I come from a black-screen plagued since 2020-branch world... so I might be just extra sensitive and careful..... But since 20.5.1 wsl (and newer) all is stable, fine and dandy even in most hardcore scenarios.

    WHQL tends to have similar OC, Betas not so much.
    Taken from my own experience. Im still on 20.5.1 WHQL (Very good driver BTW).

    Won't argue with you my friend... but ... let's say -- starting with the WSL branch that is (you know the background and my countless tests with VEGA64 and Black Screen ) :p

    I don't have any overclocks. there is a switch on the card (Red Devil) for dual bios. that does OC, or puts it in silent mode. Would a feature like that cause the issues?

    Have you ever tried lowering the voltage of the upper state?

    Something I found with my card was the default voltage asus set for the card makes it crash under load, so I lowered it's upper state voltage of 1150mV to 1132mV, I realize your card is much newer than mine and will probably have different voltages.

    I'm just using the radeon software to lower the voltage, it's easy enough to use *shrugs* something for you to try.

    I agree, on the other hand Polaris looks very dated now. In 2017/18 I tested several Polaris models and settled with the XFX RX 580 8 GB for a year. But for 1080p gaming with maximum details on a high refresh Freesync monitor it quickly reached its limits (it is still fine if 1080p at 60 Hz is all you need). I snapped my Vega 56 around the same price point last year and it certainly provides the performance I need. But I had my fair share of issues with several models there, too - it is certainly the chip I had the most fun and trouble with in my life. :)

    Hey guys, I need some help here. Do you know anything about radeon color settings? Are they global, used for all applications? HDR of windows 10 is dull and washed out when you watch SDR content. Only with HDR content colors pop up. But I found the solution with the help of radeon software. Contrast, brightness, saturation. Also 6300K is the best real white, D63 is superior to D65 (6500K). Thanks for any input provided.

    Pretty certain those display settings are global and works with the monitors info and if available also it's actual calibration if done through hardware colorimiter or how it's called. (The really handy but incredibly expensive little device. :p )
    Although I don't think I ever attempted to set these on a per-profile basis so maybe these actually do work as both. :)

    If you for some reason would prefer changing some of the display settings although since that page covers overrides like the refresh rate and scaling modes plus VSR I would expect global only unless some of the more advanced settings are hidden when handled from a game/app profile.

    Indeed, the settings of radeon settings for display color is applied to all.

    GPU Scaling - Integer Scaling - when and why we are using those settings?

    Actually Integer Scaling is used in old games, but actually has to do with the difference between normal scaling --- resizing the pixels and blurring them, or preserving the "8-bit-ish" look and just adding more pixels (preserving the pixelated but sharp look).
    Here's an example :

    Yep. And it really depends on the game, some games just didn't age well and will look like crap no matter what, but some of them still look great and Integer Scaling just brings them to a whole new level. Like a "Gaming in the 90-00's but with a 50k dollar setup" feel.

    I know. But until amd gives new driver, I am forced to use this as usual with fast ring, we have no choice. WU sees only driver package.
