    Is there some wonderful reason why you'd want to give a link to a potentially "altered" download? If that's for a Windows Store version nvm...


    Anyways, downloaded just fine from the AMD site.

    Out of curiosity, why the trouble of having a MEGA download when AMD has a perfectly good server doing the same thing?

    I think they are never going to fix any important issue we are having... At least for the 6xxx series.

    With a 5700 XT, I think besides Crysis 3 being horrendous (haven't tested other CryEngine games recently), everything else runs as expected, some fixable texture corruption in id Tech 5 games aside (AF broken).

    Wolfenstein Old Blood is a complete technical disaster nowadays as well. It's broken for AMD and Nvidia GPUs.

    And ... my PC still goes in and out of sleep randomly when left in idle for a bit, but I still don't know if that's on the GPU, motherboard (X570), BIOS or RAM.

    What issues? I have none on my 6800xt.

    Crysis 3 is just a pile of crap on modern hardware with Win 10. Its just odd.

    Much older versions of Win 10 work great. Crysis 3 will run very well on my i5 4460 fury x rig, but be basically unplayable on newest version of windows. Sucks cause I wanna max the hell out of it on my 6800xt.

    DXVK should help with Crysis 3.
    SHOULD, not that it will.
    Too lazy right now to install it and try, probably will tomorrow.

    Random stuttering/framerate drop (framerate locks to 55/115 for a few secs causing stuttering) which is really annoying.

    That sounds like more then a driver issue.

    Random stuttering/framerate drop has been fix, use 21.7.1 driver and KB5004296
    Source: https://blogs.windows.com/windows-i...d-19043-1147-21h1-to-release-preview-channel/
    Source 2: https://uupdump.net/selectlang.php?id=c912166c-ed7b-4f2d-acc8-444ba6fe8c84

    It was a driver issue but MS agent told me on the phone that AMD with Microsoft fix the issue starting with 21.7.1 and .1147 build of Windows 10.

    Update: AMD Customer Service call me back, Radeon software 21.7.1 is a temp fix and should notice less stuttering and framerate drop on Windows 10 19043.1147 build. AMD Agent point out a upcoming Hotfix driver should fix the problem.

    the framerate issue occurs because the drivers deep power management is triggering despite active load on the device.

    The level of brokenry that is happening in Crysis 3 on modern W10 builds is too much for DXVK to fix. I tried.

    Stuttering may happen after a new driver until Shader Cache is being rebuilt. It's normal.

    My TimeSpy score went up significantly. I run a little OC+UV with Power Limit raised to 310W overall in MPT. Same settings on last driver and those, overall score went from 18 522 to 19 077. Graphics score from 20 439 to 21 215. Ran a couple of times, same results.
    No Change in FireStrike Ultra and Port Royale. Will need to test benchmarks in Metro Exodus EE and SotTR.

    EDIT

    Same in TimeSpy Extreme from 9154 to 9434.
