DirectX12 Issue with World of Warcraft on RX 6900 XT on Adrenaline 2020 Edition Software 20.12.2

Jump to solution

I’m experiencing an issue with my Radeon 6900 XT in World of Warcraft (WoW) with DirectX12 selected as the Graphics API. Running Radeon Adrenaline Software Version 20.12.2 with Driver Version
20.45.01.33-201216a-362332E-RadeonSoftwareAdrenalin2020.

I see that when trying to use DirectX12 with the “gxMaximize” setting set to “1” I don’t see anything on the screen at all, but WoW.exe is running as it’s in the taskbar, I can close with Alt+F4 but nothing helps get the game to appear (changing fullscreen to windowed with Alt+Enter, etc.). When running DirectX12 with “gxMaximize” set to “0” I see a blank white windowed “WoW.exe” process that doesn’t render anything at all. The game isn't rendering at all with DirectX12 it seems.

The only way I can play WoW at the moment is to set the “GxApi” to “D3D11” - I also made sure to turn off any programs that may be conflicting with an overlay or anything else, also disabled the Radeon in-game overlay.

I’m running Windows 10 Version 1909 Build 18363.1256 for reference.
Can post DxDiag if requested, I am just curious if anyone else is seeing this behavior with WoW or other titles when trying to use DirectX12.

Thanks!

After running out of things to try I decided to update Windows 10 to version 20H2 (19042.685) and to my surprise World of Warcraft was able to launch with the graphics API set to DirectX12. 
I'm using Radeon Adrenaline Software 2020 Edition Version 20.12.2 and my Radeon 6900 XT.

Hope this helps anyone else running into this issue.
