AMD Radeon Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.9.2 Graphics Drivers Released (Vulkan 1.2.152) – Updated: v20.10.1


AMD Adrenalin 2020 Edition

 

Adrenalin 20.9.2

A new graphics driver for all Radeon graphics cards has been released for Windows 10 and Windows 7/8. Adrenalin 20.9.2 brings the following changes and fixes:

Support For

– STAR WARS: Squadrons

Added Vulkan™ Support

VK_KHR_buffer_device_address: This extension is used to query the device address of a buffer to allow for shader access to that buffer’s storage via the SPV_KHR_physical_storage_buffer SPIRV extension.

VK_EXT_robustness2: This extension provides stricter restrictions for handling reads and writes that are out of bounds. It specifies that out-of-bounds reads must return zeros and out-of-bounds writes must be discarded. This extension also adds support for null descriptors.

VK_EXT_shader_image_atomic_int64: This extension extends existing 64-bit integer atomic support to images, which provides more efficient access than buffers. This allows applications to quickly improve their performance with minor changes to their code.

Fixed Issues

– Some games may exhibit stutter intermittently during gameplay on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
– Radeon FreeSync may fail to enable after updating Radeon Software without a system reboot.
– Screen flickering may be observed while MSI Afterburner™ is running or enabled on the system.
– X-Plane 11™ may experience an application hang or crash when using the Vulkan® API.
– DOOM™ VFR may experience corruption or artifacting in game on Radeon RX 5000 series system configurations.
– Performance metrics overlay may fail to open or appear after the system wakes from sleep.
– Call of Duty®: WWII may experience black textures on the ground or walls in zombies game mode.
– Blocky corruption may be observed in Detroit: Become Human™ on some Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
– Using the Movies&TV application to edit video clips may result in green corruption in the clips.
– Performance metrics may report incorrect values for current VRAM usage after an extended period of gameplay.
– With HDR enabled, Windows® desktop may experience flickering, and performing a task switch while in a game may cause colors to become washed out or over saturated.
– World of Warcraft™ may experience corruption issues with anti-aliasing enabled on DirectX®12 API.
– Launching Radeon Software after a driver upgrade, may cause the Auto OC dialogue to appear with “0 Mhz” when the Auto OC feature has been previously enabled on Radeon RX Vega series graphics products.

 

Adrenalin 20.10.1

Support For
– Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods
– Watch Dogs: Legion
– DIRT 5 Early Access
– World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Pre-Patch

Fixed Issues
– Audio may experience instability when connected through an Audio Video Receiver via HDMI on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
– Desktop may experience frame rate fluctuation when exiting a Vulkan API game with Radeon FreeSync enabled on two or more display system configurations.
– Uploading or streaming content to YouTube may be unavailable or not working correctly.
– Genshin Impact is not detected or listed in Radeon Software gaming tab.
– Some specific Windows screensavers such as ‘Bubbles’ may cause an application crash when applied on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
– Graphical corruption may occur on desktop or at idle when two or more connected high refresh rate displays are Radeon FreeSync enabled on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
– Upgrading to Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition releases from Radeon Software 2019 Edition releases via Radeon Settings may sometimes fail with an error message.
