AMD Software Preview Driver May 2022 VR Issue


Just been trying out the AMD Software Preview Driver May 2022 in VR, using HP Reverb G2 and WMR.

When using the normal 90Hz option there is a flickering evident in the HMD. Switching to 60Hz issue goes away.

I see this issue in MS F2020 and in the OPENXR Dev Tool Demo

Returning to Drivers 22.5.1 no issues.

Please can other check.

I tested a game via Rx6800/ steam VR/oculus link (link cable)/and the new test driver for may 2022... I didn't try any of the other refresh rates so I will have to play around with that... very unstable and unplayable. I usually just install one of their older drivers that are known to be more stable with VR. ( I'm hoping they'll figure this out soon...


It is a preview driver, no guarantee it will make RTM release. A preview driver (specs) from a year ago has not been implemented.

Use the bug report tool, may get more attention.

Some here, it goes away upon changing some settings in WMR Settings page, but it's totally random. Sometimes changing to 60Hz get rid of it, sometimes to 90Hz, sometimes doesn't work either way. Also changing to performance or quality works sometimes as well.


Yes seems to be an issue with the 22.5.2 drivers also.

I have logged a bug, so for now reverting back to Adrenalin 22.4.2 Optional unless anyone can find a solution


for those using a meta quest 2, decrease the refresh rate through the oculus app on PC something like, (left menu > devices > quest 2 > settings.) I decreased mine from 120hz to (i think) 75hz and it removed all of the unstable image issues... not ideal, but acceptable while we wait for a fix

After weeks and weeks and weeks of troubleshooting I can't believe the answers were here.

Need to roll your graphics drivers back. I'm using 22.2.3 from 2021 and they work.

What a huge waste of time and energy.



At least AMD have know officially acknowledge the issue in the 22.7.1 release notes

  • Virtual Reality headsets may flicker with some AMD Graphics Products such as the Radeon™ RX 6800 XT Graphics.

Maybe they will release a fix in the next release.
