Fixed Issues​

  • Brightness flickering may intermittently occur in some games or applications when Radeon™ FreeSync is enabled, and the game is set to use borderless fullscreen.
  • SteamVR™ may experience an application crash when a VR headset is connected on Radeon RX 500 series graphics products.
  • Some high refresh rate, high resolution TV displays may experience corruption when connected via HDMI on Radeon RX 6000 series graphics products.
  • Applying changes in Radeon Performance Tuning may sometimes fail to take effect for changes made to power tuning.
  • Lower than expected performance may be experienced in some CPU intensive workloads or games.
  • Global performance tuning overclock profiles may sometimes override game specific performance tuning profiles or cause game specific performance tuning profiles to fail to load on a games launch.
  • Radeon Chill may experience lower than expected performance when a game is left idle for an extended period with Radeon Chill enabled.
  • Flickering may be observed in Radeon Software performance overlay while playing Cyberpunk 2077™ on Radeon RX 6000 series graphics products.

Known Issues​

  • Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.
  • Connecting two displays with large differences in resolution/refresh rates may cause flickering on Radeon RX Vega series graphics products.
  • Radeon performance metrics and logging features may intermittently report extremely high and incorrect memory clock values.
  • Cyberpunk 2077™ may experience shadow corruption on Radeon RX 6000 series graphics when ray tracing is enabled.
  • Disco Elysium™ may experience texture flickering on trees with Radeon RX 6000 series graphics products.
  • Radeon Software may experience a crash when Record & Stream tab is in use and a display is hot plugged.
  • Radeon FreeSync™ may intermittently become locked while on desktop after performing task switching between extended and primary displays upon closing a game, causing poor performance or stuttering. A system restart is a potential workaround if this is experienced.
  • Performance metrics may incorrectly report temperatures on Ryzen™ 5 1600 series processors.
  • The download or launch Ryzen Master buttons in Radeon Software may intermittently disappear or may fail to initialize Ryzen Master.
  • If Ryzen Master is not detected in Adrenalin software after installation, a system restart maybe required.

AMD Link for Windows Known Issues​

  • AMD is investigating isolated reports of intermittent loss of signal during Stream Optimization if HEVC is used on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products or later. A workaround is to use the AVC encoding setting instead.
  • Intermittent grey frame corruption might be observed when streaming with HEVC on certain configurations via an Internet connection. A workaround is to use the AVC encoding setting instead.

The new system tray icon looks like it's from Windows XP times.

I downloaded and installed on my 5600xt GPU Intel i3-10100 machine but havent tested them much. The icon looks old school, I love that.

Ill install on my 5600x CPU, 6900xt GPU, machine later and report back.
