    • The download or launch Ryzen Master buttons in Radeon Software may intermittently disappear or may fail to initialize Ryzen Master.
    • If Ryzen Master is not detected in Adrenalin software after installation, a system restart maybe required.
    AMD Link for Windows Known Issues
    • AMD is investigating isolated reports of intermittent loss of signal during Stream Optimization if HEVC is used on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products or later. A workaround is to use the AVC encoding setting instead.
    • Intermittent grey frame corruption might be observed when streaming with HEVC on certain configurations via an Internet connection. A workaround is to use the AVC encoding setting instead.

    Cool. One person plays on Strong Desktop, other sees shared screen on laptop and sends inputs from controller to Desktop which does all the crunching.

    Took a look at the minimal installation option, since I don't stream/record or use the overlay regularly. Looks good but theres no overclocking features so I'll stick with the full install.

    Does it have Hardware accelerated GPU scheduling? Is this driver version newer than
    UWP - v27.20.21001.7005 ?

    Minimal also doesn't include profiles per game/app, only global options.

    Is that not minimal though?

    They should have a middle option.
    Or even better, a set of selections to add with check boxes.

    Won't argue with that, just mentioning it for the curious.
    I guess the "minimal" most users desire would be having no relive, metrics, link, overlay, browser while keeping wattman and profiles. That would be a decent middle ground to reduce bloat while keeping "classic" functionalities.
    On the full install, there's now a new option to disable the web browser.

    PCI driver stack acted up a bit after this but it's fine after another reboot, keeping Wattman while having a light Radeon Settings install would be a nice addition too. :)

    Agreed! With a little bit of common sense and asking around they could have come to the conclusion that tinkerers and minimalists want Wattman to be included.

    Finally they have fixed video recording with 5.1 configured Windows audio system. No need to use "Separate microphone track" as a workaround.

    This version includes a component called "AMD DVR64", which can be removed using a utility such as Radeon Software Slimmer. When you do this, streaming, overlay and related services are disabled. Radeon Software interface adjusts for this and the Host Services should no longer be running in the background. It's one small step in a minimal install.

    Also, there are big improvements to running multiple games/apps/videos in borderless full screen mode and using FreeSync. It should work really great now, except for the Netflix app as it's controls overlay is doing something silly.
