19.12.2 is a bad driver for my 5700xt

Call of Duty Modern Warfare crashes every time I try to run it. The game ran fine on 19.12.1.  Dev errors and fatal errors occur right after shaders are installed from the game or when loading a match.  Running in safe mode keeps it from crashing but when I turn the resolution from its default to 1440p it crashes with a black screen , audio still going and I cannot CTRL+ALT+DEL out of it.  I have to upscale because I use a 1080p native monitor and want the simulated 1440p experience.   Even Warframe was dropping frames. I used to stay at 144 fps with 19.12.1 , but  it drops to 100 whenever there is action on the screen with the newest driver. 

It seems super resolution is broken , or GPU scaling is broken, or both.  I tried doing clean installs , using DDU and the AMD  clean utility but it did not fix it. I tried turning freesync off, and enhanced sync off. It did not fix it. 

I am back on 19.12.1 and running stable.   These new features on the 2020 adrenalin edition are not worth the hassle. I would hope that AMD gets more QA personnel to test these drivers before they release them.

Sapphire Pulse 5700xt

Boot drive on SSD

1080p 144hz monitor upscaled to 1440p.

Exact the same problem here. Every time enhanced sync is on the game (every game) freezes after 3-4 seconds. The sound plays on. Tabbing out of the game and back works for another 3 seconds.  I try a  lot of things, nothing works. Only deactivate enhanced sync. I want to use enhanced sync instead of v- sync because the input lag is a lot better with enhanced sync. So the only solution for me is switch back to 19.12.1 and wait till amd is fixing the problem with a new driver version.

Do you use the overlay ever?  If so, does it randomly close?  If not, could you try.  I'm just asking because I also have the Pulse and had a game crashing error (BF V).

I'm running the XFX 5700 XT, and pretty similar build. The same thing happened to me. I had to complete uninstall all AMD drivers/software and reinstall to get my games working again.

Do you wanna say, after a clean uninstall of all drivers and install the newest 19.12.2 driver afterwards enhanced sync works?

Re: 19.12.2 is a bad driver for my 5700xt

I have a brand new pc built. Its been 2-3 weeks. I am running only 1 Monitor. I only have one. I finally got time to install windows and start my new pc 3 days ago. 

Saphire Pulse 5700XT, gave me a blank screen. No signal on AOC 24 inch monitor. No sound either. Did a hard restart and it happened again 5 minutes into the game.

 

Is this just something I'll have to deal with or has anyone had any success, I don't know if I could return the card since it's out of the box now and its almost been a month. very disappointed to switch to amd, am i going to regret this ?
