    No issues here in total. Indeed VA panel is better than ever since September. Zero flickering these last weeks. And driver performs smoothly.

    Most of traditional stress tests are useless today. They do exactly what game does. Put HW under full load. But that's often not what causes crash.

    Today, HW often flops badly after heavy workload ends as it is still heated up, but there is voltage drop and clock drop which is too aggressive for such temperature.
    That's why some systems crash not while gaming, but right after.

    or --- right before.... cause e.g. a PSU can't handle a sudden big power spike that good.
    Cause of different reasons ... e.g. 8pin x2 connected to one 12V (weak) rail or through a splitter ... old PSUs that are degrading after years of use etc.

    Why stupid AMD removed Shader cache control option. Now is always enabled! Why people not reported? This is unacceptable!

    Honestly while stable this driver has shown obvious performance losses across all my regular tests.I only really installed them for Squadrons and I have access to beta branch but/ first driver in memory I’ve seen repeatable performance loss not a margin of error that I consistently see.

    You are still able to change that through registry ;)

    Yeah, me and @JonasBeckman talked about this a few drivers back. And yes I reported it. Fast forward 4-5 months later...nothing.

    And there is no reason why, to this day. No explanation was ever given why it was removed. And that's not the only issue either.
    -AF doesn't work, at all. Which was found in Horizon Dawn Zero (I believe) were in game AF was borked. Nvidia users could enable AF from the drivers. Amd users cannot.
    -Missing Custom IQ settings for Video Profile (Sharpness / Vibrance / Steady Video / Fluid motion video / (Custom Brightness is the only option available for Navi Users)
    -Broken Freesync when exiting from Modern Warfare to desktop. Also "Games" don't offer any indicator of GPU Compatibility for MW indicating a driver profile issue overall. Turning the monitor on/off fixed it. But other games works just fine. <--This is intermittent. Sometimes exiting out you get no mouse stutter other times you do.
    -Features that's been promoted at one time then remove: (FTRC, Global Cache toggle, Fluid Motion, etc)
    -Broken Recording feature once I installed the AE-7 (Sound Blaster Command) audio card. In which I now have to Enable Separate Microphone Track in order to get it to work again. I had to figure this out all by my lonesome as there is absolutely no info on this.


    So that's not the only thing gone south with these drivers. And yes, these were reported a long time ago.

    Then I suggest you do a clean install.

    So, do it again. I had lost it in 20.9.1, but have it back on 20.9.2.

    Just a quick observation after a fresh install of Windows 10 20H2 (I test new Windows builds very often), my gaming experience feels way more fluid now in Battlefield 1, just using MSI Afterburner for my undervolt/VRAM OC and using the built-in AMD driver that Windows ships with (date: 16. August 2019 - 26.20.12028.2) without Radeon Settings.

    With several of the latest drivers I encountered strange stutters in Battlefield 1 during the past two months, especially in areas with a lot of buildings (Amiens) and less so on dusty maps, but also with heavy on-screen action. I couldn't pinpoint it exactly (as I also tinker around a lot with message signaled interrupts and other tweaks) and it also could be due to several factors coming together, such as my 144 Hz Freesync HP25x monitor or some other driver settings like Anti-Lag, ESYNC or HBCC which I usually enable. As the settings through Radeon Settings were not always applied correctly, that could be another source of my problems. I will try to investigate this further...

    Not on my end and I'm using 20.9.2

    [​IMG]

    Do you now the registry strings for it? I can check on my end to see.


    Video options work on chrome but not on Firefox. I should have been specific.
    The toggle for Shader option is missing.
