Radeon 20.12.2 driver color profile issues in Windows 10

Jump to solution

Hi there, i have this weird problem with color profiles on the 6800XT GPU which seems to be a general issue for at least 2 RDNA2 users.

The issue is as follows, while opening videos with the Movies and TV app the driver changes the color profile even if it's set to Default (version 20.12.2 and fresh Windows 10 install) using programs like VLC or Media Player classic solves the issue.

The issue also shows up with web browsers while watching videos on youtube, to fix the issue i have to turn off hardware acceleration. 

Another issue is that i can't take screenshots or directly record the screen, as soon as i screenshot anything, the color profile issue goes away only for the duration of the screenshot moment, as seen in the video below.

I'll put a link on a video showcasing the issue.

The color profile issue shows up in the dark regions of her hair, strange gamma changes.

I have looked in the Windows color profile section and everything is at default! A friend of mine tested the issue in Linux with a 6800 model and there is no problem there but he has it on Windows 10 as well.

Seems that AMD silently addressed the issue in the 21.1.1 release.

Nobody else can confirm that this happens with the new RDNA2 cards at least? I have a friend with a 6800 And he confirmed it.
