    Seriously though i hope you are alive, happy and humble in this chaotic world. That being said anyone heard if big red is going to drop a x-mas driver for us to feast on? I know they aren't obligated but sure would be nice considering the current state of affairs. Any who hope you have a happy holiday season and see you next year!

    Unfortunately AMD seems to have quietly dropped the big "December OMEGA driver" as of 2020.

    AMD ADL Libraries, function to access low-level display driver functionality. Like Overclocking, Configuring Radeon Settings, etc.

    or just go back and use the driver that works the best for you. I'm using 20.10.1 Adrenalin for my W5500 and RX 570 , fixes my issues for my W5500. New drivers doesn't mean better performance and fixes, older drivers are and well seem to better than new ones anyway, i have notice this for a long time now.

    It usually means better performance. Try to use 21.11.3 till new version is going to get released.

    Different setups , different graphic cards, for me newer drivers is not as good like the older ones. And i have tested every driver including the one you mention.

    BUMP!

    Now it's the RSR driver that I'm waiting for, isn't it supposed to be out on the 4th?

    Only 'new' feature I really want out of the drivers is being able to force Anisotropic Filtering on more than just DX 9 applications.

    Radeon Super Resolution to do easy Supersampling is cool news though, I like using 111% or 122% resolution in WoW for instance hopefully I can do something like that in more games.

    Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.

    I wonder if the new drivers will increase the frames in bf2042, I have a rx 580 with the DRS 25% function, the game runs smoothly

    There is no driver that can fix bf2042.
