AMD has released its Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.10.1 driver. The latest driver adds support for DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods, Watch Dogs: Legion, DIRT 5 (early access), and World of Warcraft: Shadowlands (pre-patch).

Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.10.1 also addresses a number of Radeon RX 5000 Series issues ranging from audio instability via HDMI connections to graphical corruption with multiple high-refresh-rate displays when Radeon FreeSync is enabled.

Open issues include the black screens when Enhanced Sync is used, incorrect idle clock speeds being reported in the Performance Metrics Overlay and Performance Tuning tab, and FPS being locked to 30 FPS after modifying the HDMI Scaling slider.

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.

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.

  1. Well, it didn’t do much for the TR box. Thanks for posting this up though.

    I do wish one of these updates would fix the power plan on the B450 boards I have. Ryzen Master always shows the EDC maxed out all the time. Despite my attempts to correct it.

    Might be more of an OCD thing, all green except that one item in Ryzen Master…….

    1. wouldn’t that be more of a chipset driver thing? ..of which AMD just released a new chipset driver (as far as power plans go).

    Isn’t that an issue with the power plan being set to an 80% minimum clock speed state? The only time I ever saw that on mine is after a chipset driver update and I had to go back into the plan and drop the minimum clock speed state down. After that I never saw it again.

  3. Yeah, I have changed that too. At best it’ll report EDC at 93% for a second or two, otherwise 98-100%.
    Temps aren’t an issue, but it is a 2700x at stock clocks under a stock cooler. Should be ok.
    It bugs me sometimes, but I haven’t really looked into it. Might be something in the bios I can tweak. Right now the box has been reduced to Plex duty till I get settled

  4. You know there are monitoring programs that poll constantly and as such raise certain stats on AMD ryzen due to it always boosting to the monitoring software.
