User reported issues from 24.4.1 [spoiler] Horizon Zero Dawn may look broken when HDR is enabled. importing user configuration in Radeon Software may cause system or radeon Software to hang or even crash, leading to imported settings to be reset back to default in some cases. Enshrouded may have corrupt shadows at bottom left of screen when camera is angled in specific way, which depends on what direction you look at, for example opesite side of the sun, and straight at the horizon, while outdoors, this can be partially fixed by turning off FSR2. Enshrouded bugs out SDR content brightness to 0 even tho set to 100 after launching the game. ̶D̶y̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶l̶i̶g̶h̶t̶ ̶2̶ ̶n̶o̶ ̶l̶o̶n̶g̶e̶r̶ ̶r̶e̶n̶d̶e̶r̶s̶ ̶s̶o̶m̶e̶ ̶p̶a̶r̶t̶i̶c̶l̶e̶ ̶e̶f̶f̶e̶c̶t̶s̶ ̶s̶u̶c̶h̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶p̶u̶r̶p̶l̶e̶ ̶f̶l̶o̶a̶t̶y̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶n̶g̶s̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶g̶r̶a̶p̶h̶i̶c̶ ̶c̶a̶r̶d̶s̶ ̶s̶u̶c̶h̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶7̶9̶0̶0̶ ̶X̶T̶X̶,̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶m̶a̶y̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶a̶ ̶r̶e̶s̶u̶l̶t̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶a̶ ̶f̶i̶x̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶p̶r̶o̶g̶r̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶R̶G̶B̶ ̶l̶a̶s̶e̶r̶ ̶s̶h̶o̶w̶ ̶b̶u̶g̶ ̶d̶e̶b̶r̶e̶e̶ ̶l̶i̶k̶e̶ ̶f̶l̶o̶a̶t̶y̶ ̶e̶f̶f̶e̶c̶t̶s̶ ̶a̶r̶e̶ ̶n̶o̶w̶ ̶w̶o̶r̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶a̶g̶a̶i̶n̶ ̶b̶u̶t̶ ̶o̶n̶l̶y̶ ̶a̶t̶ ̶d̶i̶s̶t̶a̶n̶c̶e̶ ̶i̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶n̶k̶,̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶u̶s̶e̶r̶ ̶f̶a̶c̶e̶.̶ Ratchet & clank:Rift apart may experience flickering during the puzzle stages on with preset set to Very high + ray tracing set to high, the flickering is at its worse during outro after finishing a puzzle during one of the puzzle stages, flickering may occur outside puzzle stages at reduced rate. Fallout 3 & New Vegas crashing on AMD 24.1 and newer drivers. CPU performance metrics may have weird values or no data such as a 0. Windows Update may override user Drivers if Windows Driver Updates is not disabled, even while playing a game, if game mode is not properly engaged. Some apps may trigger max vram clocks, until app is restarted such as steam big picture, or big picture related settings such as controller calibration settings. When clicking release notes > button from System tab in Radeon Software it will open the following link https://www.amd.com/en/support/download/drivers.html rather then the release notes. Radeon Software may not open recorded footage and instead flicker on and off, while being able to play some footage, this may indicate a issue with the way files are written. Overwatch 2 may have longer exit time then normal on systems with AMD Radeon, now longer exit time after 24.4.1 upon fresh shader cache. Overwatch 2 when alt tabbed from, then alt tabbed back to will remain frozen until cursor is shown, either by pressing emote menu or pressing escape or from alt tabbing a second time into Overwatch 2. AMD Relive may record or screenshot/videos to dim or have inaccurate color representation when HDR is enabled, work around use OBS for now and force SDR in the display capture. Hogwarts legacy has blocky shadows with RT on on 2 specific spots that are unnamed in the game outdoor park and indoor park. Performance metrics may flicker on and off slowly or fast during picture in picture play in some games such as palworld at full 3D load or World of Warcraft. Doom eternal may show flickering decals in random places during first horde mode cutscenes or gameplay, or other maps at random places foreground background other places when non standard aspect ratio is selected, work around is select 16:9 aspect ratio any other aspect ratio introduces flickering on ultra nightmare preset, users may also lower decal textures which may make reduce flickering. Death stranding may have RGB eye flickering during cutscenes that can also appear during gameplay, which can be checked by using a trainer to zoom in fov enough on the head, using the photo tool does not reproduce the issue, this may not be an issue on death stranding director cut. Radeon software when using stress test and stopping it before it finisches, it will finisch the run rather then stop, because Radeon Software is above user, and will contineu even if you tell it to stop. Motion blur may not be working in palworld on AMD gpu's when drivers are set to run on the new dxnavi, but will work if fallen back on the old dx11 optimizations from 22.5.1 AMD audio devices that are made thru input output noise suppression may distort above 54% volume, this is unavoidable when using whatsapp desktop which has no option to not automaticly adjust mic levels for example, which AMD can fix by making it default at 100% but at 54% of the volume level currently. Tutorial messages such as how to open AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition using set key combination for example alt+r keep re appearing after cleared, even if tutorial messages is turned off. AMD Cleanup Utility can cause a endless safe mode boot loop, this can be fixed by running msconfig and turning off safe boot, by hitting win+r type msconfig then navigate to boot and uncheck safe boot. (suggestion update the wiki on this issue, and that the user can disable safeboot thru win+r type msconfig navigate to boot and disable safe boot) ̶E̶l̶d̶e̶n̶ ̶R̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶w̶h̶e̶n̶ ̶a̶t̶t̶e̶m̶p̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶c̶h̶a̶n̶g̶e̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶f̶u̶l̶l̶s̶c̶r̶e̶e̶n̶ ̶f̶r̶o̶m̶ ̶b̶o̶r̶d̶e̶r̶l̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶w̶i̶l̶l̶ ̶l̶o̶c̶k̶ ̶u̶s̶e̶r̶ ̶o̶u̶t̶ ̶c̶o̶u̶p̶l̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶s̶e̶c̶o̶n̶d̶s̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶n̶ ̶r̶e̶v̶e̶r̶t̶ ̶b̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶b̶o̶r̶d̶e̶r̶l̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶o̶r̶ ̶v̶i̶c̶e̶ ̶v̶e̶r̶s̶a̶.̶ Some users may experience crashes in dx12 games such as Elden Ring when in fullscreen exclusive state (work around run in borderless) still an issue after recent fix for switching to fullscreen or borderless When you set manage color for apps automaticly in System > Display > Advanced display in windows 11 vivid gaming turns display to bright Tony Hawk's™ Pro Skater™ 1 + 2 has compatibility issues with FidelityFX Sharpening where if its set it makes game look out like washed out and broken when HDR is enabled. Every time The last of us part 1 is ran in-game HDR settings reset to be turned off having to go back into options > display > brightness settings to turn on HDR again, even tho HDR is enabled on desktop. Some games reported previously fixed, may still experience driver timeouts such as Baldurs gate 3, or Valheim with vulkan api. Diablo 2 resurrected experiences a visual bug in the den of evil only when 1st quest is still active and cave is red. Enemy dead bodies in the dark/corner of the screen turn blue on xtx 6700 XT Marvel Guardian's of the Galaxy crashing on chapter 11 with Raytracing enabled, this happens during the fight with Thanos, this happens after the cutscene where he splits in two. Instant replay or recording is not working for some users, even if record desktop is enabled. World of Warcraft players still reporting issues such as constant crashing. Dota 2 since patch before crowlfall gets multiple crashes, verifying files temporaliy fixes the issue acording to user, it may be shader cache related if shader cache is stored in game directory, user has a 7800 XT. Tekken 8 on fallen destiny stage may crash on graphics cards such as 5700XT (work around use -sm5 launch option or fallback to 23.x.x drivers) same crash may happen on Polaris Having DRM content active in a browser tab breaks Radeon Software overlay and stops it from working until that tab is closed. users may experience consistent crashes in valorant. Grayzone Gray Zone Warfare is experiencing flickering issues such as with terain texture [spoiler][youtube=-JjmwnrvVxY][/spoiler] HDR bug washed out colors when going into browswer even tho HDR is disabled after turning off monitor and turning it back on (fixed by turning on HDR and turning HDR off again) While running Helldivers 2 on graphics cards such as 6950XT Radeon Software may not open, even if game on background and Radeon Software is killed it will open again, but as soon as get back into the game it will no longer open again. AMD Sam option missing from performance tuning tab, despite being enabled in bios. Water turns black on polaris gpu's in Hogwarts legacy. User reports crashes in FFXIV on 7900 XTX on drivers past dec 2023 Lords of the fallen may stutter ocasionally on Drivers 24.4.1 due increased shader compiling time, has been reported in other games as well. When using vsync + hardware cursor users may encounter stuttering. Visual corruption may be observed in Remnant 2 Some users experience stutters and audio crackling when switching between video playback and 3D workloads since 24.1.1 this may only be happening on rdna2. Slow VRAM leak may be observed on RDR2 with Vulkan api selected + SAM (ReBar enabled) User reports that GTA 5 may randomly drop to less then half FPS during during night time gameplay. Some users may encounter driver timeouts in Call of duty MW3/Warzone etc. Radeon Software may think the game is still running, it however is not running, this may happen with games launched from steam that require the EA client, work around exit the EA client this should not be neccesary if it detected right executable, user may also try remove game from Radeon Software and scan for new games to see if it detects right executable. Forcing AA/AF settings in OpenGL games may no longer take effect. uncharted 4: a thiefs end during one of the cutscenes shows artifacting on fench possibly game bug, reproduceable on 7900 XTX and 6900 XT. Lightroom and photoshop may crash for some users on 24.4.1 but not on 24.3.1 Microsoft teams still crashing when sharing screen Warhammer 40,000: Darktide has stuttering issues reported by multiple users Every time user experiences driver timeouts AMD Noise Suppresion turns off. When users select recon class in Battlefield™ V when Directx12 is turned on, and they use the M3 infrared weapon and zoom in they will crash to desktop without an error in the event viewer, workaround use DirectX11. Multiple users report that their PC freezes on 24.4.1 Corruption may be observed on some AMD Graphics Products such as the Radeon™ RX 6700 XT, when switching between game and app on another screen for example video playback or web browser / discord if hardware acceleration is enabled.(this might be same issue as from 22.8.2) Users may encounter flickering in browsers or flickering shadows in browsers such as chrome/edge and also Firefox in rare cases and other chromium based browsers, which is in some cases fixed by disabling MPO, in case of MPO not fixing it may be freesync related. [/spoiler] Out of 62 issues 40 issues i can reproduce on 24.4.1 will have to go thru it again to see if i still can on 24.5.1, these are not only reported by me. On 24.5.1 only 34 issues are now reproduceable

Once they compensate me my 1 year sub sure, altho i blame Blizzard more then AMD i just wanted them to fix this. Anyway i recommend DDU from safe mode and clean install and just import snap settings, but before that export user snap settings, upgrade always seems to make a mess for me.

I wonder whether GPU sales are down in general or it is actually only about AMD GPUs. Context is important and there is a general trend hating AMD(Radeon) anyway justified or not. (AMD has an issue - everybody calling them out, Nvidia has an issue - "it is fine". That's what I noticed) Anyway I don't think it is related to what you said.

Oh no, dgpu and gaming consoles revenue is down when console sales are down and new GPUs are gonna release later this year. AyyMDone.

I know, i do check this bug every update. With few more issues at that. They still hadn't rolled out fix for amf_point upscaler. It was fixed internally LONG time ago, but still wasn't released to stable channel. Hmm... Now that i double check, dev reported about fix at 8-th January. I guess i should've expected it to not be fixed until AMF runtime gets this damned 1.4.34 version.

AMD ones. Nvidia GPU sales is not only gaming division, due to better AI tooling support and CUDA. (Primarily CUDA).
