Driver 22.11.2 - Greyscreen of Death has returned on my 6900XT
At first I was surprised to see the Grey Screen of Death again, then, I laughed, since 22.11.1 almost made me forget I was using AMD drivers, 22.11.2 was the abrupt wake up call I needed.
Reproduce the problem repeatedly:
1. Buy AMD graphics card (6900XT in my case)
2. Load the Drivers
3. Wait 5 minutes (This is the important part)
4. BOOM - Greyscreen preceeded by micro-stutters.
I think AMD could get a win here by replacing the Greyscreen with an AMD logo thanking you for your purchase.
