AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 20.4.1 Beta Drivers

The new Beta drivers now come with support for Resident Evil 3. You can download these drivers from AMD or TPU.

AMD today has released a new beta driver on their Radeon Software Adrenalin suite. Driver number 20.4.1 beta brings with it support for Capcom’s Resident Evil 3, on which we’ve already written a deep-dive performance article for you to peruse (heads-up: it’s a pretty good and pretty good-looking game).

Alongside this support, AMD has also fixed a number of issues, including black screens or application hangs in both Overwatch and heroes of the Storm. One important known issue that is listed is the chance of a black screen or system hang when running Folding@Home while also running an application using hardware acceleration of video content. We shan’t have that – so if you run into issues like these whilst offering your processing power to the world, beware. For the full list of fixes and known issues, look after the break. And as always, you can download this driver suite right here on TechPowerUp just by clicking the link below.

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.

Known Issues

  • Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.
  • Running Folding@Home while also running an application using hardware acceleration of video content can cause a system hang or black screen. A potential workaround is disabling hardware acceleration for the application that has it enabled.
  • Using Edge web browser to playback video content with a multi display system configuration may cause a system hang or crash after extended periods of use.
  • Performance Metrics Overlay and Radeon WattMan incorrectly report higher than expected idle clock speeds on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products. Performance and power consumption are not impacted by this incorrect reporting.
  • Modifying the HDMI Scaling slider may cause FPS to become locked to 30.
  • Some games may exhibit stutter intermittently during gameplay on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
  • Desktop or In-game corruption may occur intermittently when HDR is enabled.
  • Radeon RX Vega series graphics products may experience a system crash or TDR when playing games with Instant Replay enabled. A potential workaround for users experiencing these issues is to disable Instant Replay.
  • Radeon RX Vega series graphics products may experience a system crash or TDR when performing multiple task switches using Alt+Tab.
  • A system crash or hang may be experienced when using Edge browser to play Netflix content.
  • Some users may still experience black screen or system hang issues during extended periods of gameplay. AMD will continue to monitor and investigate reports of these issues closely.
  • Direct ML Media Filters are currently unavailable in Radeon Software Media gallery for video or image content.
  • XSplit may experience an application hang or freeze when performing a scene switch.
