    Hi, i have a Strix Vega64, i noticed since a few months maybe, that vsr wasn't working anymore (I used it for old games before so it worked). I can activate it in menu, after that screen turns black for a second, but i can't access any resolution above native, in windows or games. I searched forums ans other people have same problem. One advised to install 20.4.2 drivers, and i can confirm that Vsr is working with these, even installing them on top of last drivers and without rebooting: as soon as the installation finishes, it works, i can see resolutions in windows or games!! But as soon as i update the drivers after, ddu or not, i can activate it but it's not working. Any other users have same problem? Thx! (i'll try other drivers to see exactly when it began to fail)

    So, i tried with many drivers and can confirm VSR stopped working after 20.4.2. Yes i figured out a bit late but i only played recent games, on my TV for the most, so 1080p was sufficent for me...
    Can other Vega users tell me if VSR works for them please? Thx!

    VSR works on Polaris but didnt test tbe latest drivers yet as i also play on 1080p so keep it disabled.

    VSR is still working fine here on Vega 56/64 with 21.3x and 21.4.1

    Thank you for responding!
    I Thought i found a solution using CRU : I added 2560*1440 resolution (automatic HDTV timing + TMDS 340hz), and placed it in first "position" in CRU : after tinkering it worked one time (mean i saw superior to my native 1080p TV res and could activate it!) But since i rebooted, i still can see the new VSR resolutions but can't use it (my monitor says res is not supported. The refresh rate is blocked to 59.940hz to : if i apply 60hz, black screen and monitor says res is not supported to... Very frustrating since i can now see the VSR resolutions ans it worked one time! If anyone else wants to try...

    VSR and its outcome, depends on monitor capabilities to run those baked resolutions and timings not driver. Driver is something global. Report to AMD both your monitor model and your issues, but I doubt anything could happen. Just stop using VSR if it's incompatible with your specific monitor.

    The fact is VSR worked perfectly with my TV until 20.4.2 drivers, so it is compatible (and still works, with same cable and TV)!! And i managed to re-activate it in 21.4.1 by adding 1440p res in CRU. The problem is since i rebboted, i just can "see" the VSR resolutions as avalable in windows, but they doesn't work anymore... As soon as i reset the CRU settings to default the VSR resolutions all disappears...

    UPDATE: MANAGED TO MAKE IT WORK AGAIN !
    So the problem seemed to be gpu scaling, it has to be disabled. Once disabled i can access more refresh rates in windows, and activate 60hz. After that VSR works perfectly in any game with last drivers! EDIT; It only works in borderless, not fullscreen,and windows is limted to native res! So complicated!! But with gpu scaling activated, i can only access 50-59,94-60hz, and refresh rate is blocked to 59,940. If i try to change it to 60hz : black screen and tv says resolution not compatible... Strange!
    But glad i found a workaround, and i tried rebooting without problem, VSR still active!
    To sum up:
    I activated VSR in driver, but not gpu scaling. (At this point i can't "see" VSR resolutions in windows, which was the initial problem). Added 2560*1440p resolution in CRU+TMDS clock to 340mhz. This time i can see resolutions and IF refresh rate is 60hz progressive, it works. (Sometimes i was stuck with 59.94hz and VSR didn't work, but i think it was related to gpu scaling activated)
    So it's very weird, but i'm happy because now VSR is working normal, like it was with 20.4.2 drivers. I repeat i saw an other guy on AMD forum having the same problem after 20.4.2, that is why i think it could be driver related?
