No definitively NO !
Adrenalyn 2020 is a mess at all levels.
9 month of not solved problems like :
- Black screen and freeze in game
- Switch tab key instability
- No Freesync stability
I'm a long time supporter of AMD Graphics, but this is enough.
My next graphic board will be green...
It was introduced from https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-pro-win-20-q2-1
In the release notes it says:
If you install a Radeon Pro GOU (in this case a Radeon Pro DUO) on the PC System, along with Radeon GPUs, you get the older Adrenalin 19.12.1 Style GUI/UI. There is no fan control or Wattman of any of the GPUs though.
I have a RX5500XT and two RX580s. I am running 19.12.2 says it is Adrenalin 2020 but has the old interface. I am afraid to change anything now. I am wondering if I have the latest of the "old interface". I know how to install drivers in device manager but I wonder which ones are best for my cards?
You should really update to the latest Drivers Possible for your cards, which is Adrenalin 2020 20.8.2 drivers, especially for Navi cards as they should be far more stable on latest drivers. For example the RX5700XT model I am currently testing constantly crashes on drivers before 20.5.1.
It is strange you have the old interface. If you did a clean install of the drivers you should have Adrenalin 2020 (19.12.2) https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-rad-win-19-12-2 GUI/UI.I think that is the earliest recommended driver for the RX5500XT.
Perhaps Windows Update automatically updated you to 19.12.2 Drivers but kept you on the Older GUI/UI because it was already installed for your RX580's.
Did you install the RX5500XT after the RX580's were already fitted to the PC?
You can quickly update to the latest drivers but keep the old GUI/UI by doing the following.
Download Adrenalin 20.8.2 driver.
Run the installer.
Let it extract its files under C:\AMD\Win10-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2020-Edition-20.8.2-Aug17\
Cancel the installation.
Open Windows Device Manager.
Open Display Adapters and pick a card, any card... ;-).
Update the driver by Browsing for drivers to: C:\AMD\Win10-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2020-Edition-20.8.2-Aug17\Packages\Drivers\Display\WT6A_INF
That should update the drivers but keep the old Adrenalin 2019 19.12.1 style GUI/UI that you have already.
However I would recommend you do a clean install if you do not know how your PC Drivers got into current state.
I would download latest version of DDU from here: Official Display Driver Uninstaller DDU Download
Extract it and make sure it is ready to run from desktop.
Download latest version of Adrenalin Drivers and GUI/UI you want to install.
Disconnect completely from the internet.
Boot into windows safe mode.
Run DDU in safe mode to remove all traces of Nvidia and AMD drivers.
Boot into Windows 10 Normal mode.
Run the Adrenalin 2019 19.12.1 installer if you want the old GUI/UI or run Adrenalin 2020 20.8.2 installer if you want to have new GUI/UI + latest 20.8.2. drivers.
If you install 2020 20.8.2 you may as well select Factory Reset install.
Once the Drivers are installed reboot into normal mode.
If you installed Adrenalin 2019 19.12.1 GUI/UI then turn crossfire off and then update to 20.8.2 drivers using Device Manager - Then reboot and reconnect to Internet.
If you installed Adrenalin 2020 20.8.2 GUI/UI and drivers then you should be o.k. to reconnect to the Internet and set up your cards.
If you do install the latest Adrenalin 2020 GUI/UI check the CPU% used by the Radeon Software. In my case it uses 7-14% of a Ryzen 2700X CPU.
That might just be a problem on Windows 10 19.09 build.
The Older GUI/UI installed from 19.12.1 with latest 20.8.2 Drivers only uses a small CPU%
I think it is because I installed them from the previous "Pro" driver package.
I am also still running Windows 7 Ultimate on a FX-8350 processor at 4.7 Ghz.
Things seem stable for me but I am sure there are improvements.
But I am not sure Windows 7 is even supported in the latest driver build.
20.Q1.1 is the last Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise Driver for Windows 7 64bit:
You can still install the latest Gaming Drivers on Windows 7 64bit though 20.8.2 is supported according to this:
