Just DDU'd the new driver. On the display tab, the option to select Pixel Format is gone. It was there in 19.7.5.

Probably its best to share your Display model numbers and also share the 'dispdiag' log (type in commandline). Log should be available under
Also, it might help if you people shared your Radeon Settings -> Display tab screen capture.
I rolled back to 18.7.4 (couldn't find the original 18.7.5 on my PC) then did a custom install of 19.8.1 of everything except Radeon Settings, now have the pixel format setting back again and no other problems.
I sent in a service request, as kingfish suggested.
I tell ya, with all of the issues I've had with this new card, this is the first and -last- AMD card I buy. I wanted to stick it to Nvidia for how badly they gouge customers, but it seems like -I'm- the one that got stuck. I'm not a fanboy of anything, but my old 970 was problem-free from the first day to the last.
A notable discovery.
If you do a clean install of 19.8.1, as I originally did, the Pixel Format box is missing. If you roll back to 19.7.2 (DDU safe mode again), and then do an express install of 19.8.1, the Pixel Format box remains.
Amd has not given an answer through the forum, if you want an answer from them, you must do what the kingfish mate says, where he puts us a link to communicate the error and then you will receive an answer by email.
Strange since going to 19.8.1 I've had 2 BSOD's in a row while watching Youtube videos. It's been years since I had one of those. I see in another thread that several other people are getting BSOD's watching YT videos.
Same problem here... I have done a DDU clean from safe mode and installed the latest drivers today 19.8.1 and now I don't have the pixel format settings and my screen colors sucks...
In fact it also makes me pissed that everytime I do a clean install AMD always goes into YCbCr444 pixel format instead of RGB, but I always went to display settings and change it to RGB and now the option is gone and its pissing me off this super bad colors I'm having when my Samsung BX2231 is RGB...
I have it connected from DVI on the GPU to HDMI on the display cable, haven't tried connecting a direct HDMI yet, but I won't even bother since the option was always there before this last crap update screwed it all up...
Hey come on people, this is not a show stopper. 19.8.1 does not fix that much unless you have an RX 5700 and even then you can do a custom install of a previous version and just install an older Radeon Settings or fully roll back to a previous version for other cards.
True, AMD has been a time in which Polaris graphics receive hardly any improvements and where they have only focused first, on the Radeon Vll and later on the new Navi, but of course, there are always and there are people who want to have the last ones installed drivers and we do not look at the improvements or the corrections offered by the drivers and proceed to install them.
- Is AMD going to put aside Polaris graphics?
- Are they going to be Legaccy drivers for these? I ask because they have been almost three months in which this type of graphics is not named in each new version of drivers that appear.If I remember the last certificates were 19.5.2, since then they are not named at all to These graphics.
Same here. I got monitors for every single connector there is, so it's easy to see what's happening.
HDMI defaults to YCbCr444 and can't be changed
DVI defaults to RGB444 and can't be changed
Displayport still gives the option to change pixel format both for native and adapted connections.
