    They finally ditched the Intel test machine for their own.

    RX 580. Can't install these. Installer crashes to desktop without a whimper. Will keep poking at it.

    EDIT:
    -some other instances of this noticed by other users
    -reboot did not fix
    -DDU did not fix
    -Redownloaded and manually extracted did not fix

    -Running previous installer, canceling and then running latest installer FIXED. Weird.

    YES.

    The GTA V Reflection MSAA has been broken on RDNA since July 2019 (the entire lifetime of RDNA).

    And YES to finally making the barely functional AF setting in the driver at least work on the only API it was meant to work with anyway. Next up, making AF API agnostic.

    Not listed as a fixed issue nor acknowledged issue-- yet for anyone wondering, Quake II RTX still crashes in the COMM CENTER map, just as before -- 100% of the time / first time firing gun 2 or 4 at an enemy. {display driver crash}

    One can only dream of a agnostic AF for RDNA.

    It's not in the release notes, but they fixed the high CPU usage with RadeonSoftware.exe when the host services aren't running.

    Glad to hear it. The game being listed as supported, yet no mention of problems, had me a bit worried. haha


    Additionally, these new drivers seem to often crash on map 2 (the map prior) -- roughly at the point of picking up the nail gun {also on hit contact shooting enemies with the shotgun}. 20.12.1, 20.12.2, never had that happen over several dozen runs. Bit less stable than the last release.

    -- Just finished testing with and without RBAR, and with capping the clockspeed at 2ghz. ... About to rollback to 20.12.2 to verify doubly that this isn't coincidence.

    EDIT: 21.1.1 is definitely less stable, hours of gameplay testing, and crashes pretty consistently on map 2 now. Which it did not before.

    As a fresh owner 6800xt, should I install them over prev or with standard tactic-uninstall, DDU, then install?
    That was my steps always with RadVII, but had 6 months NV GPU after ^^, so...

    I've been doing both intermittently {for the sake of troubleshooting} in addition to full OS rollbacks [with backup software], yet find that install-over has caused me **no problems** thus far with each release from 20.11.x through 21.1.1.

    You'll probably be just fine with an install over.

    I think this is new too, FRTC is back (maybe just for Navi2). It's under Settings -> Graphics -> Advanced and is system wide, not game specific.
