I have a problem since several driver versions.
I am not able to turn on instant replay without having problem ingame. Although replay is activated, no recording is done.
While instant replay is turn on...
I turned instant replay off in radeon desktop application. After that I start a game. No stutter or lags. Overlay is working fine with ALT+R or ALT+Z. But if I hit "Record a Video" it is not working. And if I hit "instant replay on" overlay hungs up and is not working on desktop either.
In my recording directory I have a few 0kb or 1kb files.
Already completely removed driver and installed older version.
GPU: RX 5700 XT
Radeon Software 20.10.1
OS: Windows 10 2004
I have read a few similar problems here in the community but all of there where with no solution.
I already asked sapphire for a bios update but they responded: "a BIOS update will unfortunately not provide a remedy. The cards are bug free in this respect. It will either be your PC or the drivers from AMD. Sometimes there may also be a defect of the card."
I switched off instant replay and started a game. Ingame I use ALT+R to open overlay and enabled instant replay. Overlay instantly disappeared and if I TAB to desktop and open Radeon Software it shows up only as a transparent frame.
Had the same behaviour since 20.4.1 (tested every version upto 20.11.1!!!) on my RX590... The only thing that helped is: I use older driver (in my case 20.3.1) - all newer driver has the ReLive-Problem.
Stuttering and co is gone when ReLive (Instant Replay) is deactivated... But I want to use ReLive IR but its not possible.
I had a little hope after I read on 20.11.2 release notes the following fix:
- Enabling Record Desktop and Instant Replay may cause hitching or stutter during fullscreen video playback on some system configurations.
Sadly it doesnt work on my PC.
I was installing Windows (Windows 10 x64 20H2) from scratch and 20.11.2 was the FIRST driver I installed - but same issue as behaviour. After enabling Instant Replay Valorant was stuttering and all Radeon Software Overlays (Performance Overlay, Alt+R/Alt+Z) do not work. All the time u can see the blue loading animation from Windows near the cursor and the FPS a dropping in Menu from 144 to 60fps and ingame from 340 to 100fps every 3-4 second.
This is my first AMD card (rx 6800). I have the exact issue you are talking about OP. So this is what people are talking about when they say AMD has software issues... I thought, come on that has to be a thing of the past, look at the hardware, the software is probably fine. What a mistake going AMD.
