AMD Radeon Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.3.1 Released (Updated: v20.4.2)


AMD Adrenalin 2020 Edition

 

Adrenalin 20.3.1

AMD has published a new Adrenalin 2020 Edition graphics driver. Adrenalin 20.3.1 brings the following changes:

Support For

DOOM Eternal
Achieve up to 5% better performance playing Doom Eternal (Ultra Nightmare settings) at 1920x1080p on the
Radeon™ RX 5700XT with Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.3.1, versus Radeon™ Software
Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.2.2. RS-333

– Half-Life: Alyx
– Ghost Recon™ Breakpoint: Vulkan API

Added Vulkan Support

VK_EXT_post_depth_coverage
This extension indicates support for shader modules that use the SPV_KHR_post_depth_coverage extension. Fragment shaders using the SPV extension can control whether the SampleMask built-in input variable reflects the coverage after the depth and stencil tests are applied. This extension is only supported on AMD RDNA hardware.

VK_KHR_shader_non_semantic_info
This extension indicates support for shader modules that use the SPV_KHR_non_semantic_info extension. Shader modules using the SPV extension can include non-semantic instructions that can be safely removed from the module.

VK_EXT_texel_buffer_alignment
This extension provides a mechanism to query alignment requirements for uniform and storage texel buffers that cannot be well communicated via minTexelBufferOffsetAlignment.

VK_EXT_pipeline_creation_cache_control
This extension provides flags that can be used by an application to inquire about potential high cost that could be incurred during pipeline creation. The information can be obtained prior to carrying out the create operation, which would allow the application to adjust its behavior accordingly.

Adrenalin 20.4.1

The Radeon Adrenalin 20.4.1 graphics driver has been released with the following changes and fixes:

Support For
– Resident Evil 3

Fixed Issues
– Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm may experience a black screen or application hang while gaming for extended periods of time on some Radeon RX Vega series graphics product system configurations.
– HDR may fail to enable or be detected in applications and games using the Vulkan API.
– Doom Eternal may fail to launch in some hybrid graphics system configurations.
– Radeon ReLive streaming may fail to launch or may crash when a stream session is started with performance metrics overlay enabled.
– Some clock values may fail to populate for a limited number of graphics products in the Radeon Settings Hardware information tab.
– Hotkeys can no longer be assigned to a single digit or character as this has the ability to block or cause interference with some default Windows® functionality.
– Some Radeon FreeSync Premium supported displays may not list all supported refresh rate options in Windows when Radeon FreeSync Premium is enabled in the displays OSD settings.
