AMDRSServ.exe high memory usage

Occasionally, AMDRSServ.exe commits over 50GB of virtual memory, crashing my PC.

Reinstalling with AMD Cleanup Utility doesn’t fix it.

Issue seems to have started recently, perhaps to do with the 20.12.1 release? I’m running a 5700 XT with 16 GB RAM. Anyone else have this issue? Is there a fix?

Exactly the same problem mate. I'm running a 5700XT too with 16GB RAM and randomly my PC just says it's Out of Memory and everything just either goes black screen or closes.

Looking through Event Viewer I found that it was trying to use up 35GB Virtual Memory which is wild! I just went in and disabled all of the auto scanning for updates and the Re-Live software capture to see if that helps but yeah something needs to be done about it.

Haven't seen anyone else complain about this besides you which is odd.


I downgraded to 20.11.3 and have not experienced this issue again (so far).


Hey, just wondering if the issue has happened since you rolled your drivers back? Got a friend who's experiencing the exact same thing.
