    nothing, the system hangs due a bad kernel driver (probably a bad pointer within a race condition), so there are no logs, dumps, bsod or whatever. This is since ATI AVIVO, they never fixed their damn hw decoder. This isn't related to firefox.

    Yeah if it does crash before the application itself and to an extent the system powers off or hits a regular old bluescreen I don't think the error reporter will be able to log much of anything unfortunately but then the GPU video decoder or the software part of it in the current driver suite might be the main problem more so than the browser and from the existing frame drop issue (Which exists for both Chrome and Firefox with a few open bug reports logged.) this is made even worse in more intensive videos meaning 4k and higher apparently it's not always a crash though or a good number of dropped total frames and the system just hangs or full on hits a kernel / bsod event which is definitively a bad sign.
    (User mode and the code here and you get a crash, kernel mode and a error and yeah that's a bluescreen and a bit more of a severe problem.)

    EDIT: It's avoidable and the user can work around it but the amount of searching around and knowing about these issues is something that needs to be addressed, not like it's anything new though AMD has a fair amount of work to do if the launch of RDNA2 isn't going to be hampered by the current driver situation and to say nothing of the current GPU models and their outstanding issues whether general or game specific or other stuff which there's a fair amount of.

    Well it's a trade-off I suppose possibly losing hardware accelerated browser benefits for stability especially in regards to video playback.
    (Probably more so for VP9 and likely higher-res or 60 FPS content that is more intense for the hardware but that doesn't really change that it's a problem.)

    EDIT: Going through a number of possible system crashes for testing VP8, VP9, AC1 or AVC1 codecs and 4k, 8k or 60 FPS wouldn't be fun for the user either or having to use stats or chance on video playback plus at least for Firefox some videos even with settings against it can still end up autoplaying.

    There are no Firefox crashes. Black Screen + Windows froze and had to hard reset. Again I didn't get the 'soft' black screen. Never did since owning this GPU.

    Firefox crashed do to the reboot, no the blackscreen. Which logged it on my end. There was no soft black screen.

    Any news on about new drivers? No major pc game releases but still there is things to be fixed.

    Only thing I've heard is that the Vanguard team is testing something but I assume it's the upcoming 2004 Windows 10 update and WDDM 2.7 compatibility driver for well I guess probably sometime during this second half of May ha ha.
    No idea what so ever about outstanding issues, game specific issues, earlier GPU issues or current Navi ones or the software like ReLive or Catalyst Next although I am expecting the display model update to be a bigger part and then maybe we'll see more fixes at least until the RDNA2 cards launch and whatever miracle will be required to sort out all this before that happens and hopefully not too many months of getting those drivers sorted out, well one can hope at least.

    Vulkan 1.2.140.0 has some fancy stuff since the SDK AMD's using in the current drivers (1.2.131.2 I think?) although having D3D being performant and stable without relying on wrappers and the latest fancy extensions for game compatibility, fixes and more performance would be nice too but whatever works with how things currently are.


    EDIT: Next week in time for the monthly patch Tuesday would be nice too but with the current status of things whatever testing and fixes are possible to get in should be done even if it means we'll only see one 20.5 driver release before July comes around it's about time some of the longer outstanding issues stopped standing out. :p

    Will this driver support old video card like HD 5800 version? Are there any modify/modded driver version Adrenalin 2020 Edition that will support this card? Can't get Gears Tactics to run on one of the machine with the HD 5800 with driver Crimson Edition 16.2.1 Beta. Just crash/freeze at loading.

    EDIT:
    AMD HD 5800 doesn't support DirectX 12? Is that the problem?

    No chance mate as 5xxx is a VLIW5 architecture, 6xxx is VLIW4/5. Starting first from 7xxx they switched to GCN architecture and this is the "minimal" architecture level supported in the drivers.

    No and no.
    As far as I know they removed at least part of the code related to VLIW. (Key files can't be replaced and you probably need fixes in the key .dll that you can't just replace with newer one from newers drivers.)
    If you ask me (keep in mind this is my personal opinion) they removed more than they should had because some particular problems with GCN 1.0 start exactly when they removed the support for VLIW 5/4. (GCN 1.0 while a new architecture still has a couple of things somehow similar to VLIW (PowerPlay section is extremely similar between them(VLIW and GCN 1.0), while GCN 1.0 and 1.1 don't really look the same in that area)).

    If you want to see improvements regarding VLIW, Mesa (in Linux case) is the only place where you can still see active development.

    Hd5000 and hd6000 series are gpus of a full decade by now. Support is impossible. All electronic devices and vehicles, should be replaced every decade if possible depending on one's pocket money. Only houses are immortal.

    That's what we call rock stable oc, gaming, performance etc. There's a reason for it.:D

    Without new games and no public release of WDDM 2.7, do not expect miracles. We can only hope. I believe we would get 20.5.1 last week but due to corona virus I give them 1 week more. Let's see.

    Well we do expect some improvements in the architecture undreneath the drivers.... maybe final solution to the black screen issues / race conditions in the kernel and/or power managment on the driver side? Maybe some fixes to regressions in Freesync 2 HDR reported/submitted by me two times already?
    Hope dies last...

    i am trying this driver, attention because it installs an additional service for log... :eek:
    Version-20.5.1 iCafe
    Release Date-2020.05.11
    https://www.amd.com/zh-hans/support/kb/release-notes/icafe-windows-10-driver

    I don't have store, so i don't know UWP:oops: but i picked up the control panel by driver Radeon Pro 20.Q2
    all extracted with 7zip and manual installation
    [​IMG]
    seems to work very well
    no crap, no relive finally i'm happy ;)
    ps. RIS only on\off (no %) if you need this vital function :rolleyes: avoid

    No differences in the Version of D2, D3D Component, nor OpenGL, Vulkan seems same too (compared to 20.4.2 ) I think this is just a repackage for chinese internet cafes, maybe without the reporting component or something like this.
    I think I will pass and wait for the "real" 20.5.1 driver which should include WDDM 2.7
