Audio Issues are still present in Stream + Local Archive, and remain present in the Local Record post-Stream or using Bitrate > 50Mb.
I will be rolling back to 17.12.1 (which are the last not to exhibit said Audio Issue) although the Frame Dropping is present., that's something that I see as less of a Priority Issue because as indicated above by another poster... isn't universally noticeable., where-as Audio Issues such-as what I (and others) are experiencing ARE)
Given Adrenalin is supposed to be more focused on Feature and Functionality Support over Performance Improvements (i.e. Games working properly see: World of Final Fantasy Water., Stream / Record Audio., etc.) ... I seriously think people would much more greatly appreciate such focus right now.
Holy Crap 18.3.3 has fixed the Audio Jitter with Recording and Streaming...
I need to do more tests with the Stuttering, as I was mostly testing for the Audio Issues; but it does look promising so far.
I had high hopes after reading leyvin's comment. Oh well. It will soon be time to celebrate my GPU driver's first birthday.
I can confirm for now there wasn't any issue so far with the audio.
Altough I've recorded a little bit of darwin project (which is a game that stutter from time to time due to being on early access and my bad system) and I noticed that the audio was getting more and more desync as every time I was getting stutters
Those stutters weren't drivers fault though, it's really just the game.
Also I've another problem with Relive that are video micro-stuttering and stuttering, I've created a question/topic for it with video proofs that I would love to you amdmatt and any other user in there to take a look, if you have the timeRelive random dropped frames!
Adrenalin 18.3.4 = Stutter
This will be a long story.
So I finally found the problem. Relive records at 60hz and my monitor is 59.94hz by default (set by windows). How do I know this? Well I tested capturing at 60fps with OBS using software encoder and it had the exact same issue. It would stutter every 15 seconds. In OBS you can capture at 59.94 though, so I tested this and was buttery smooth.
I have created a custom resolution in Radeon Settings and changed my monitors G.Refresh Rate to 60.001 (unable to get exactly 60.000hz) and it is smooth capturing using relive at 3440x1440, 100mbps bitrate using the latest driver (18.3.4). After about 4 minutes though it eventually falls out of sync.
If possible we need to know the exact hz that Relive records at to overcome the hz mismatch between capturing and the screen refresh rate.
This post will get buried in this thread so I will create a new one.
