AMD Radeon Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.8.3 Graphics Drivers Released (Updated: v20.9.1)


AMD Adrenalin 2020 Edition

 

Adrenalin 20.8.3

A new graphics driver for all Radeon graphics cards has been released for Windows 10 and Windows 7/8. Adrenalin 20.8.3 brings the following changes and fixes:

Support For
– Project CARS 3
– Marvel’s Avengers
– Fortnite: using AMD’s latest driver Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 edition 20.8.3, a Radeon RX 5700 XT GPU offers an average 12% better FPS performance in Fortnite (DX12) on the Epic setting, vs. the previous driver iteration, Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 edition 20.8.1.RS-340

Added Vulkan® Support
VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state: This extension adds more dynamic states. This allows applications to reduce the need to recompile and bind pipeline state objects.
VK_EXT_private_data: This extension allows applications to store application-defined data in a 64-bit private data slot.
VK_EXT_image_robustness: This extension adds stricter requirements such that drivers return default RGBA values instead of undefined values for out-of-bounds reads. The number of components returned depends on the number of components present in the selected format.
VK_GOOGLE_user_type: This extension indicates the driver’s support for shader modules using the SPV_GOOGLE_user_type SPIR-V extension.

Fixed Issues
– Mortal Shell may experience a game or application crash when opening the inventory window in game.
– Enabling HDR on some Radeon FreeSync 2 displays, may intermittently cause the display refresh rate to be forced to the FreeSync ranges minimum refresh rate during gameplay.
– Surviving Mars may experience an application crash or hang at launch on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
– eFootball PES 2020 may experience an application crash at launch on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
– Radeon Overlay may not be available or may fail to invoke on Hybrid Graphics system configurations when playing Hyper Scape.
– Counter-Strike: Global Offensive may experience intermittent stutter when some applications are running in the background such as third party matchmaking clients or Discord.
– YouTube playback may become frozen with Microsoft Edge player and Chrome when played on an extended display on some AMD Ryzen 7 3000 series and AMD Ryzen 4000 series APU system configurations.

 

Adrenalin 20.9.1

Adrenalin 20.9.1 is essentially a bugfix release, no new features:

Fixed Issues
– A black screen, system crash or TDR may occur while gaming when performing task switches, enabling performance metrics overlay, or having video content/web browsers open on secondary displays on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products system configurations.
– Project CARS 3™ may experience performance issues when the Radeon Software performance metrics overlay is enabled.
– Error 1603 may occur during Radeon Software installation on some AMD Ryzen™ 5 Mobile Processors with Radeon™ Graphics system configurations.
– Error 195 may occur during Radeon Software installation on some AMD Ryzen™ 3 Mobile Processors with Radeon™ Vega Graphics.
– On some displays, power cycling the display while Radeon FreeSync is enabled may cause the display to remain black until the system is rebooted or the display is hot plugged.
– Flickering may occur in Borderlands™ 3 in some locations when Radeon Boost is enabled.
– Decoding some HEVC content using AMF Decoder may result in corruption in the clips playback.
– Performance Tuning fan profiles may sometimes not be applied after loading a saved profile.
– Radeon Software may sometimes crash or automatically exit when performing a game scan in the Gaming tab.
– Random color corruption may intermittently occur on some surfaces while playing matchmaking in Counter-Strike™: Global Offensive.
– Notifications may be missing icons or text when hotkeys are used to invoke some Radeon Software streaming and recording features.
– Brightness flickering may be experienced on some VP9 video content playback through applications or web browsers on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics product system configurations.

OpenGL support

Adrenalin 20.8.3

Adrenalin 20.8.3 exposes OpenGL 4.6 and 328 extensions for a Radeon RX 5700. The OpenGL support is similar to Adrenalin 20.5.1.

- GL_VENDOR: ATI Technologies Inc.
- GL_RENDERER: AMD Radeon RX 5700
- GL_VERSION: 4.6.14736 Compatibility Profile/Debug Context 20.8.3 27.20.12027.1001
- GL_SHADING_LANGUAGE_VERSION: 4.60
- OpenGL Extensions: 328 extensions (GL=304 and WGL=24)
- OpenGL SPIR-V Extensions: 17

 

Adrenalin 20.9.1

Adrenalin 20.9.1 exposes OpenGL 4.6 and 328 extensions for a Radeon RX 5500 XT. Same OpenGL support than prev 20.8.3.

- GL_VENDOR: ATI Technologies Inc.
- GL_RENDERER: Radeon RX 5500 XT
- GL_VERSION: 4.6.14736 Compatibility Profile/Debug Context 20.9.1 27.20.12029.1000
- GL_SHADING_LANGUAGE_VERSION: 4.60

Vulkan support

Adrenalin 20.8.3

Adrenalin 20.8.3 exposes Vulkan 1.2.149 API and comes with four new device extensions:

VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state
VK_EXT_private_data
VK_EXT_image_robustness
VK_GOOGLE_user_type

And nice thing, AMD has tidied the device extensions list up: all extensions are now properly sorted…
