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.
