    According to Q2 RTX github it's been fixed in v 1.4.1 - Quake II RTX Change Log - 1.4.1

    Try to reset shader cache in Radeon SW

    This is what nvidia dev wrote in issue log

    One of the changes in this driver is that it actually also deletes the GL and VK shader cache files on install not just the DX cache files or folder.
    Of course if Quake 2 RTX has it's own VLK cache that wouldn't be affected.

    Cezanne support in the INF and some window compatibility parameter as well.
    "%AMD1638.1%" = ati2mtag_Cezanne, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_1638&REV_C4
    "%AMD1638.2%" = ati2mtag_Cezanne, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_1638&REV_C5
    "%AMD1638.3%" = ati2mtag_Cezanne, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_1638&REV_C6
    "%AMD1638.4%" = ati2mtag_Cezanne, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_1638&REV_C7

    HKR,,WaForegroundWindowUnresponsive,%REG_DWORD%,0


    Vulkan runtime files look to be updated from 1.2.155 to 1.2.162.0
    (Runtime 1.2.162.1 has some fixes but they seem SDK or development oriented I don't think it's anything too critical.)


    And not much profile wise looks to be mostly just a profile that is forcibly disabling of Free Sync for one of the Media Player Classic Cinema programs.

    <application Title="Media Player Classic - Home Cinema" File="mpc-be.exe">
    <use Area="DAL">FreeSyncForceDisableGaming</use>
    </application>

    <application Title="Media Player Classic - Home Cinema" File="mpc-be64.exe">
    <use Area="DAL">FreeSyncForceDisableGaming</use>
    </application>

    That's the Black Edition I believe more specifically.

    It fixes some problems but it doesn't prevent crashes completely.

    Works ok; nothing notable from 21.1.1. Oculus Link still works and resizable BAR memory reporting is fine too. I'm not affected by any known issues, nor any of the fixed issues either :p

    One os freeze immediately after install and another crash after restart while watching yt in Chrome. Freesync still heavily stutters with 10-bit pixel format option enabled so it must be turned off if I want those nice colors.

    I couldn't beleive my eyes when I saw it in the release notes and I did a quick test on one of my AMD test rigs with 6800XT, and it indeed seem to be fixed, at least for Navi21. I'm not sure about the previous AMD GPUs, 5700 family was also affected, I hope it is fixed for it as well.
    The problem explained in this post is finally gone. Well done, AMD. Better late than never.

    Installed nicely over 21.1.1 without resorting to a clean install. Nice that I didn't have to redo my settings, as going from 20.12.1 to 21.1.1 wasn't as friendly, and needed a clean install to get Radeon Settings to start up again.

    Exporting settings is broken for you?

    Does the radeon settings open like this for anyone? to the side and down...

    It's done this for the previous version also.

    I have it installed, but I didn’t run it simultaneously, should I remove it completely?

    if its not running it shouldn't be causing any problems, the driver it uses only loads at application start and stops when it closes.

    Immediately after you wrote this I copied it to our vanguard channel so seems it had been given a high priority to fix ;-)

    xD

    Can you also raise the ongoing Aida64 compatibility issues in the channel? it seems like a joint solution using a shared api would be better than Aida64's developer going alone and blindly at that.
