    Download AMDVbFlash, this is a Windows-based firmware flash utility from AMD for Radeon graphics cards. BIOS files can not only be updated, the BIOS currently saved on the graphics card can also be ...

    My system seems to be very old. It took a couple of minutes to change flash bios, not few seconds like mentioned. o_O

    This software screams backend program. Desperate move.

    It’s a shame not all cards will get the higher memory clocks

    Releasing a software that was not designed for the end user.

    lol dude for real ? what it need more than that ? u want "1click-done" things (while this things almost 1click, load-firmware->cprogram ) ?
    its not like command-base-exe (msdos) like old bios update things
    for firmware update the tools do the job simple-straight

    Answering that is going to kill all mystics. A Commodore 64 pun man ... the load and start program command. * Load the first application you can find from device 8 (disk) into 1 (RAM memory).

    Have you tried the latest driver's. I thought that those were supposed to fix that.

    Some Radeon RX 5700 series graphics users may intermittently experience a black screen while gaming or on desktop. A potential temporary workaround is disabling hardware acceleration in applications running in the background such as web browsers or Discord.

    This is in the newest driver known issue list.

    Fits my problem except for mine being a 5600 xt

    it only fixed idle black screens, not discord / steam black screens.

    I mean its alot better than it used to be, vbios updates would just be given with a batch file that you would have to run in dos

    Does anyone tried to downgrade the bios of the Sapphire RX 5600XT with AMDVbFlash (dualbios) ?
    I have find 2 (3?) .rom on techpowerup ; I guess they are the original one (december)

    https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios...X+5600+XT&interface=&memType=&memSize=&since=

    I have 3 questions :
    - does it work to downgrade simply by "Load image" ? Or does it need another step before ?
    - do I have to : 1) loading the defaut mode, restart 2) loading the quiet mode, restart to downgrade both bios ?
    - Do I have to uninstall the drivers first to avoid any problems after bios downgrade ?

    If you want to know why I want to downgrade :
    Linux isn't performing well at all on the new bios (drivers problem), but Linux was using the GPU perfectly with the previous one.
    And I don't want to wait several months to have my dualboot working...
