    Does this new performance up lift work in polaris?

    No major perf. changes on Vega so I assume that uplift is dedicated only to RDNA1/2

    //I mean that optimizations are not applied (/applicable) to GCN etc.

    So me buying my Sapphire Nitro+ 5700XT for $420 in Jan 2020 just 2 months before the crazy started has once again been vindicated. :) Still have my 390, as I like to keep one available in case my current card dies.

    vega and polaris are using the old atidxx umds.

    it may worth if you cannot have constant framerate above minimal value used for your screen to adaptive sync.

    This explains my observation of zero gains compared to 22.5.1.

    This happen with 5600XT card?
    I will need also exact graphic settings you have set.

    I don't have any of these problems...but I don't use chrome, I use FF x64 DE. No problems with Windows animations and no slowdowns in opening & closing, minimizing windows, etc. I never use Win11 insider hardware drivers, btw. I've got it set in group policy not to update those, and the setting has carried through with every upgraded build. Now on Win11 22621.100.

    22.5.1 is a WHQL driver which has fixed the problem I was having with enhanced sync with my 6900XT, in the previous beta drivers--last 2 or 3 drivers, IIRC. Was getting visible screen artifacts with E-sync enabled, but apparently it was the beta drivers, all along.

    Installed the May Performance Drivers twice actually, using both a simple upgrade install, and then the factory install, and both times it ended with an error "OOOoops--something went wrong" which is, I think, possibly the most uninformative error message I've ever seen...;) It took running the AMD Cleanup Utility to fix things and allow the performance driver to install. Both times.

    I'm going to stick with 22.5.1, for the time being.

    Holy smokes the performance on this driver for Deathloop (playing with FSR 2.0 Quality 1440p) is TERRIBLE. I get anywhere from 10-30 less FPS depending where I am and it constantly jumps around while 22.5.1 has SIGNIFICANTLY better stability and raw FPS. I was excited for this driver but it looks like they have a very long way to go... The difference is just ridiculous. I went from much lower FPS and just a roller coaster in terms of stability on this driver back to high and stable FPS on 22.5.1... crazy.

    I bought my Red Devil 5700 XT at the same time for £350. I'm glad I did now. Crazy times.

    Some very basic testing on DCS and im seeing about 4% - 8% boost in framerates on a simple ME Mission with not that much else going on.

    Have you tested it?
    judging by this video, it doesn't seem like RDNA1 is getting the love:


    Nvidia has this better multithreading "thing" for DX11 coded in the drivers for a decade or so. Do I really need a RDNA2 card to get the same treatment from AMD?
    If so, this is very disappointing.

    I made a post about testing DA:I with the preview driver, and have some very notable improvement, especially in regards to minfps and 1% low... This game once fluctuated between 44 to 60 fps in my test area, and now is a flat pancake at 60fps (on my 4K display using 85% Res Scaling) coupled with a 3600 CPU.

    I suggest doing your own tests instead of relying on what a Youtuber posts. :)

    Just tested Ryse Son Of Rome and its still a complete mess.

    Low GPU usage, low clocks, and horrible performance.


    just look at the frametime graph and the clocks on the GPU. This is at max settings 1440p and the GPU doesn't even touch 1GHz.

    Crysis Remastered had a nice boost in performance with this driver so I thought maybe Ryse is now playable. Big fat nope.

    These preview drivers make Oculus Link unusable (stage movement and ghosting). Oculus Link is fine with 22.5.1. I have a Quest 2 (wired Link) 6600 XT, and Windows 10.

    This happens on both wired and Air Link, V39 on the Quest 2, and both V39 and V40 PTC on the Oculus Rift client.

    This error in the Service log is spammed a bit and implies AVC/H.264 with these drivers is changed in some way:

    Unable to get H264 fixed slice mode support: 11
    RuneScape (RS3, NXT, OpenGL) also has unexpected stuttering and lower FPS with these preview drivers, compared to Linux (haven't tried 22.5.1 on Windows). I've done nothing to really debug this aside from making sure I had the same in-game settings and GPU clocks.

    Had this happen as well on 10 (10.0.19044) with these drivers, and oddly even with the 22.5.1 driver.

    Went to "C:\Program Files\AMD\CIM\Log\Install.log", saw some MSIX package fail, ran the command it mentioned in the log, and I was missing "Microsoft.VCLibs.140.00.UWPDesktop". Went here, got Microsoft.VCLibs.x64.14.00.Desktop.appx, installed it through Powershell, the command worked, and the AMD installer worked fine on its own after that too.

    That 1603 error code could mean a few different things, but check the log to be sure.

    It looks like a fake error. I have the driver installed properly. I think that I started to have some weird detections of devices some time ago because of my Logitech G19 keyboard. In this case, I had to unplug and plug it during AMD driver installation. Otherwise, the installation hangs during blinking the screen. So weird!

    On a bright new installed Windows? I'm sure that somehow my problem is caused by my Logitech G19 keyboard.

    I have to unplug and plug it back almost every time during any AMD driver installation. Sometimes I don't have to do it even for the same driver. It happens randomly.

    When I have time I will try to install AMD drivers before the Logitech software for the mouse and the keyboard. Or to install it with a different keyboard. I think it's a kind of compatibility problem or my keyboard is malfunctioning.
