    Atiapfxx.exe -r -sys -s test.xml

    test.xml from atiapfxx.blb in 18.5.x or the "Q2 2018" driver compared against 18.5.1 here.

    18.5.1 is dated May 16th, Q2 is dated May 11th.

    Crossfire profile updates.

    Quake Champions.
    (Crossfire flag updated.)

    Profile updates.

    Ancestor legacy.

    Ans-Win64-Shipping.exe -> Anc-Win64-Shipping.exe
    720380 -> 620590 ( https://steamdb.info/app/720380/ -> https://steamdb.info/app/620590/ So closed beta to full game.)


    And that's pretty much it for this file.

    For Q2 2018 against 18.4.1 I made a quick comparison in that topic here:
    https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/radeon-adrenalin-edition-q2-2018.421072/#post-5547854

    Which to summarize there's profiles added for Warhammer Vermintide 2 (DX11) and Ancestor Legacy (Closed beta.)
    And there's also profiles for PXDynamic and HighPerfGPU flags for a couple of games which AFAIK (From a previous driver topic thread some time ago here.) indicates for the driver to prefer the dedicated GPU over the integrated one.
    Finally for Crossfire there's Gravity, Earthfall and Battlezone (Remaster of the sequel I assume.) as the new additions and updated ones for PUBG, Shadow of War, Conan Exile, Kingdom Come and Vermintide 2 :)


    INF seems not too different to Q2, driver is about a week newer but that's about all so no major changes from a quick comparison here.



    And for hardware acceleration assuming it's video playback via Twitch or Youtube what a surprise if it's borked again, seems it's fixed in one driver and broken in another and then fixed in one web browser (Hi Firefox!) and then broken again when the next version rolls out (Hello Firefox!) thus I keep HW acceleration off even if it can be useful even with a decent CPU. (Decent until you try 4k VP9 video playback at least or similar, ha ha.)

    If it's a stand-alone video player I'm not too sure, MPC-HC with MadVR works here but it's the old but still going K-Lite bundle for simplicity though MadVR is customized a bit every now and again because they add a ton of new stuff to it. :D



    EDIT: Ah the 18.5.1 release note page on AMD's website is available now.

    EDIT: It's mostly just for the known issues, not too many listings but still a few notable things such as stutter with ReLive replay if used with FRTC and the Radeon overlay maybe missing some bits if used under borderless display mode.
    (The issues with Witcher 3 stuttering and the RadeonSettings.exe possible system hang if the user doesn't reboot first after a driver update already being listed for 18.4.1 as I recall, at least the driver is nice enough to prompt for a reboot even if WDDM and newer versions of Windows can handle a driver update but it's usually recommended to make sure everything goes smoothly.)

    I have a Ryzen 5 2400G system with Windows 10 1709 and Kodi 17.6 DSPlayer + MadVR that experiences a playback issue with the Q2 drivers from a couple days ago. Interestingly, the issues only pop if (a) 12-bit or 10-bit color is enabled for my 4K@60Hz display and (b) DSPlayer (not Kodi's built-in player) is attempting to playback a decrypted UHD Blu-ray M2TS file. If I switch to 8-bit color, the playback error does not occur. The February release of the drivers has no such problem. I will check back in hopefully after the Memorial Day weekend and let everyone know if today's unified 18.5.1 drivers fixed my Kodi playback issues.

    Look like someone on the inside of Intel stole that CPU and give it to someone at AMD haha.
    Also no crashing in games now, play around 3 hours with no crash in State of Decay 2.

    havent had this problem in a while..i only get 2 channels from my HDMI now. Cant do Atmos or even basic 5.1. ug. guess its time to DDU and back one as i did a clean install. :p

    update : yup, DDU'd reinstalled the one back driver, works like a charm...detects everything no problem. Oh well, guess i skip a driver this time.(Tarkov sounds WAY too good to play it in just stereo, I upsample the 5.1 mix to Auro3D and it sounds UNBELIEVABLE :D )

    Besides they already have Great CPU for this 2700X at 4.2Ghz w/3466MHz Ram at CL14 will destroy any 4core part easily :p and for ATI Radeon more cores=the better FPS because of Heavy Multi Threaded Adrenalin Driver :cool:

    Not everybody had this issue..so we cant tell you.

    Use DDU and install 18.5.1 and report back to us.
