    No but maybe is something bigger that you need to check. Maybe it is something related to DWM.


    The Desktop Window Manager is experiencing heavy resource contention.

    Scenario: The Desktop Window Manager responsiveness has degraded.

    Do these drivers support WSL GPU access or is that still only the preview driver?

    great drivers so far, although that "vivid gaming" option is horrendous lol :p

    Not a very good driver on my end, yesterday during Wasteland 3 when i tried to bring up the Radeon Software the mouse froze, the game froze, got a black screen then the game crashed and the driver restarted, now i was just browsing, my mouse froze, got a black screen and the driver restarted because amdwddmg was not responding. My vga was rock stable with previous driver (no oc).

    And did it again after posted this massage.

    Waiting for DDU to get rid of this mess.

    Why don't you take a look into mirror and face reality? Those are 2 very different topics. And I did not change my views even a bit.
    nVidia's streaming is cloud based with everything there is to cloud advantages and disadvantages. AMD's is same as Local Steam based streaming which I was calling what? Good.

    AMD added to this local streaming simple feature, that enables 2nd weak system to get input into "server", at latency proportional to local network. (Low single digit millisecond lag. For some it is under 1ms extra lag.)
    And then gets image back to client again at low single digit millisecond lag. (Where real extra lag of round trip may be way under 5ms.)

    And guess what, person still owns HW they are streaming from like with steam. It is hard to believe you actually came with this post. Because discussion was about paid solution vs available free alternatives and price of ownership vs long term paid streaming. Advantages, disadvantages, ...

    So analogy here is not to nVidia's paid streaming, but Valves steam streaming with ability to enable another player to game within same session at cost of one rendering. (Which means freeloader. Which effectively cuts cost of ownership per gamer into half.)

    So if you want to put this scenario into perspective of nVidia's thread:
    - nVidia's solution: Two people pay separate cloud streaming subscriptions.
    - AMD: One person owns gaming HW, other plays remotely with 1st person (for no extra cost).

    You can play Mortal Kombat with your friend who is in building next to you while only one PC does rendering. And his experience will be practically local. Try to play Mortal Kombat against someone when you are using cloud and have 40 ms extra lag from roundtrip.

    Anyway, I had good laugh.

    Vega also doesn't have that option, because it's supported from RDNA and higher

    Ryzen 4000 with vega graphics has the option but Vega gpus does not have it. Hah, amd is such a garbage.

    They will fix this IMhO sooner than later :oops:
    Im only using Saturation +18-22 for gaming -> it's better that way.

    Overall for Vega is very solid driver, all my games working notch better.
    I wonder how much more untapped performance Vega has :D:p (29k in 3Dmark is now very easy to achieve for my setup, im now looking for 30k !).

    Performance is solid driver seems stable but they always put up some crap like that for no reason.

    Unlucky mate. You're missing out on a lot if you want washed out colours and almost eliminating AO. As @CPC_RedDawn said it's garbage at least for me.

    Not really, ryzen 4000 apu's only released last year whereas Vega 56 and 64 launched in 2017 with Polaris being slightly earlier in the year as a refresh of the 400 series.

    I wouldn't expect support for newer features on older hardware, who knows maybe they will add it in the future or maybe there is a limitation with the hardware that they can't do it.

    But trust me when I say this, the feature is trash. Basically eliminates shadows and AO and my screen is colour calibrated with a spyderX pro. So you ain't missing out on much here my friend.

    And I'll laugh again when the actual performance results come in and it's the same or worse than GFN. You're basically imagining benefits that don't exist.

    Also, you clearly don't know how it works, read this carefully again;

    "A brand-new AMD Link for Windows client is now available that allows you to stream your games and desktop to other Radeon graphics enabled PCs."

    So there's zero cost advantage. In-fact, it's perfectly clear they're telling you it only works when both systems have Radeon graphics.

    Strange. I´m seeing a less detailed image in AC: Odissey, it seems more blurred.
    The Vivid Gaming gimmick is like Nvidia vibrance, way too much "vibrance".

    Has anyone tried removing KB5001330 from their system to see if it deals with the micro stuttering issue? I read an article saying that users reported stuttering in games after installing that update and that nVidia made a statement about users having stuttering issues in games should remove it. I may try removing it to see if it deals with the stuttering and if I do I will report back later.

    KB5001330 is classed as a security update. Not much info on it. I've got it installed without any issues. But I don't play that many games at the moment to fully test.

    Im on 20H2 without any monthly update and its running flawslessly. On i7 2600 and RX 580 8gb. Probably the culprit is the windows update. The improvements in the performance overlay are very good, the only thing i dont understand is the inaccurate gpu utilization. Its the only thing keeping me from only using the Radeon Software and ditching Afterburner and Rivatuner completely. I like to use that metric while adjusting settings in game so i can stay in a consistent framerate the majority of the time.

    That turned into a advanced install option letting user tick and untick what they want or not would be a nice next step for these modes.

    EDIT: With the GameDVR64 and OpenWVR64 utilities also part of the selection instead of always installed, possibly also some of the other forced drivers or components really.
