Benchmark drop with Adrenalin 21.5.1

Jump to solution

Just installed the update on 5800x with 6900 xt. Timespy score went from 17900 to 17200. I benchmark  after every test, usually score goes up, this change takes us back to February score. Anybody know why?

I cannot confirm this, as my score went up a bit. But this is a normal deviation?. Nothing to worry about. 

 If you feel something is not right, Uninstall the drivers with DDU and re-install them.

I tried rolling back but that damned scsi driver did more damage to my clean install than I could fix so I did another clean install coming back up on 20h2.  I just got to the point where I could run Time Spy and my scores are back to normal around 17k.  Running the latest AMD chipset drivers along with Adrenalin 21.4.1.

The first thing I did once I completed my initial clean install of windows was disable automatic driver updates to prevent this from happening again.  Shame shame on you AMD for releasing a bum scsi driver update through WU then dumping a new Adrenalin driver that just pooped out all over your customers.

I'll keep auto driver updates disabled until I go back to an Nvidia gpu.  My laptop doesn't have these issues with a Ryzen 7 5800h and RTX 3060 gpu.

Mine dropped 2k and I immediately took a screenshot of my benchmarks and used the reporting tool to inform AMD.  Likewise my gaming FPS dropped in the same way.  Now my GPU clocks are less than half of max rated and I'm not happy!!! **bleep** AMD who wrote and tested these drivers before you released them in the wild???

Strange they send another SCSI driver out through WU just before they released this driver.

Just for fun I ran the AMD auto update tool and it recommended to downgrade back to 21.4.1 so I am.

I uninstalled Adrenalin as well as all the Windows updates, reinstalled Adrenalin an updated windows. This solved my problem. Score is back to 17900ish.

I don’t have the SCSI driver installed. Maybe that is why I could recover. I did have the bios go into a recovery mode where it reverted to base settings I.e. no XML profile 1 or the bridge mode. In the end it is a happy story, I’m on the latest Radeon driver installed but with zero improvement on performance. I will be more careful from now, maybe give a week before I update drivers.

I've never seen anything like this.  Their scsi driver embeds itself into the OS and you cannot locate or remove it.  I used AMD's driver removal tool and even it couldn't get it out.  It even corrupted my windows store files and I tried everything I know using powershell and the usual command prompt tools to fix it and I couldn't.  I also couldn't even get any of my restore points to work to rollback to before it happened.

It cut my CPU power in an abnormal way by around 1/3 as measured by Time Spy and made my rx 6900 xt drop in a similar manner although not as extreme but its performance became noticeably cyclical.  Now keep in mind that my windows build was only 1 month old.  I have a new laptop with a ryzen/rtx combo also running 10 pro and it isn't affected in the same way that this all AMD setup is.

I really wish that I would've been able to pick up a rtx 3080/90 instead of this Radeon.  Even with not allowing driver updates in windows its still pushing them through so its only a matter of time before I get nailed again.
