I lost my HDMI sound with this driver installed the normal way. I noticed that the Radeon Software icon wasn't running and it failed to manually launch with an error message to reset the software to factory. I reinstalled the driver with the option to reset the settings and everything seems to be working so far.

Figured that I'd mention this on the off chance that someone experiences the same issue.

That sucks. The 21.9.x drivers were a pretty big jump (i.e. you could not take configs from 21.8.x) but 21.9.x to 21.10.x seems like a pretty minor one.

But then again, they do manage to seemingly mess up Ryzen Master with every update to either Adrenaline, chipset, or Ryzen Master itself. (It is working for me right now but I've honestly had it fail between reboots before).

New driver for Guardians of the Galaxy, interesting. Clawing back 20% means stuff like aggressive LOD cutoffs or other corner cutting fine tuning.
