    BTW this driver enables Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling on RDNA cards in Windows Insider Preview Cobalt (build 21301).

    There are no user controls shown in Settings - you need to check with either GPU-Z, dxdiag text report, or my text console tool.

    You mean just RDNA or RDNA + RDNA2?

    Nice find ! Unfortunately nothing here on the 20H2 with the latest feature pack (19042.789)...

    @DmitryKo What about WDDM 3.0?

    This driver seems to be still 2.7 ( 27.20.xxxx.xxxx)

    Not supported (Off) when checked via GPU-Z, so seems that only RDNA1 cards are supported.

    Sorry for the offtopic, but could anyone tell me how to use DXVK in Windows games?
    Many thanks

    It works on my RX 5700 XT so I assume first generation RDNA (Navi10/Navi14) cards are supported. Not sure about RDNA2 (Navi21).

    Did you run it on an Insider Preview build?

    It seems like it's only enabled in the latest Insider Preview build 21301.

    AFAIK, Windows Driver Store version (and driver-reported WDDM version) will only change when the driver passes internal Microsoft testing, which is based on Windows HLK test kit (the same one used for WQHL certification) - and it doesn't seem to include WDDM 2.8/2.9/3.0 tests at this stage.


    Latest Adrenalin drivers do support at least some WDDM 2.8/2.9 DDIs available in Insider Preview builds, though they still report WDDM 2.7 as the maximum supported version. Specifically, HW scheduler is marked as an experimental feature (using DXGK_FEATURE_SUPPORT_EXPERIMENTAL flag from WDDM 2.9) so that's probably why there are no user controls shown in Settings - System - Display - Graphics Settings.

    Doesn't work for my little RX 5500 XT. 21301 and 21.2.1.

    How you checked that? Did you just used Windows settings or DmitryKo's "Feature Checker"?

    From B3D forums:

    Thx for clarification

    I will sum up some "How-to" guide and will post it in DXVK thread

    Weird, I have this for Vega on 20H2 (release, not insider)

    The report is different because there are two different driver caps in WDDM 2.7 and 2.9.

    D3DKMT_WDDM_2_7_CAPS include three separate bit flags (enabled, enabled by default, supported).
    D3DKMT_WDDM_2_9_CAPS include the enabled bit flag and a two-bit feature support flag that can indicate always off (not supported), experimental feature, stable feature, or always on (feature is required by the driver to operate).

    DxDiag would also report them using two different formats:
    Code:
    Hardware Scheduling: Supported:True Enabled:False
    Hardware Scheduling: DriverSupportState:Experimental Enabled:False

    Then hardware scheduling is not supported for RDNA2 cards in this driver, so it would make no difference even if you run my tool.

    (Beyond3D Forum doesn't allow new users to view attachments, sorry - I do plan to publish it on GitHub / WinGet for Cobalt 21H2 release).

    Weird. I wonder what makes Navi10 so different from Navi14 and Navi21 - it's probably just insufficient developer resources...

    Since the first 6800 driver (November), I have the same bug. My monitor supports 75Hz. But because of the movies and youtube videos, I set 60Hz for desktop. When I start some Vulkan game (Doom for example) it detects the maximum Hz for the same resolution - 75 and uses it.
    The problem is that when I finish and exit from the game, the driver doesn't set back 60 Hz which I have already set for desktop. It keeps 75 from the game. And it shows wrong 60 while Windows shows correct 75:

    I have reported this 2 months ago but it's not fixed yet.

    In case of DirectX games, everything is OK - the driver sets back 60 Hz.

    Is there an actual reason, or are you practicing a bit of insanity there? o_O

    Yeah, the other bug of AMD that keeps max vmem frequency when I use 75Hz. Now I have a workaround with CRU custom resolution so the clocks go down in IDLE.

    You can try to play 60fps video on 75 Hz.

    I used to play movies with AMD Fluid Motion (Bluesky Frame Rate Converter directshow filter) but AMD decided to remove this feature from DRNA/RDNA2 architecture.
