AMD has released Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 21.2.2. The latest driver does not introduce any new game support but does fix a small list of issues, which include corruption during loading or gameplay in id Software’s classic 1999 multiplayer FPS, Quake III Arena. It also addresses a potential rendering problem in Blender with Radeon RX 400 and Radeon RX 500 series graphics cards, as well as lower performance in Wolfenstein: Youngblood when AMD Smart Access Memory is enabled.

Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 21.2.2 Highlights

Fixed Issues

  • Objects may fail to render correctly when using EEVEE render in Blender on Radeon RX 400 and Radeon RX 500 series graphics products.
  • Quake III Arena may experience corruption during loading or gameplay.
  • Performance may be lower than expected in Wolfenstein: Youngblood when a system is AMD Smart Access Memory enabled.

Known Issues

  • A system hang or crash may be experienced when upgrading Radeon Software while an Oculus VR headset is connected to your system on Radeon GCN graphics products. A temporary workaround is to disconnect the headset before install.
  • Some resolutions may be unavailable or unlisted in the resolution settings drop down menu for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive when using 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • Radeon FreeSync may fail to enable in Forza Horizon 4.
  • AMD is currently investigating end user reports that Radeon Software may sometimes have higher than expected CPU utilization, even when a system is at idle. Users who are experiencing this issue are encouraged to file a bug report in Radeon Software.
  • Brightness flickering may intermittently occur in some games or applications when Radeon FreeSync is enabled, and the game is set to use borderless fullscreen.
  • 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.
