Fixed problems in this adrenaline driver

  • When Radeon FreeSync is enabled, switching tasks to another display or application intermittently can cause the desktop refresh rate to be locked at any interval, leading to stuttering.
  • Streaming and recording functions do not work or cannot be enabled on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products in Windows 7 system configurations.
  • Radeon Software may crash or crash an application when waking from sleep after logging into the AMD User Experience program.
  • DOOM Eternal may experience a very dark or dim screen when changing in-game V-Sync settings with HDR enabled.
  • Hot plugging a disabled HDMI display and then turning it on may occasionally cause a system crash or crash.
  • Enabling Instant Replay can rarely cause a system failure or TDR on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
  • Compatibility advisor may display a “Failed to retrieve requirements” error message when it opens. Users must reset Radeon Software to factory settings for this fix to take effect.
