Radeon 2020, 60 FPS cap

Hi,

RX 5700 XT

I just upgraded to AMD Radeon Adrenaline 2020, since I did. My games cap at 60 FPS. If I do a total factory reset of the settings within adrenaline it uncaps the FPS. But on the next PC boot it begins to cap again?

I begin at 144+ FPS, at any given time. Without me doing anything but playing, no change of settings or alt-tabbing. The overlay starts to display a constant 60 FPS and I get mouse input delay. Like if v sync was turned on by itself.

- This most oftenly occur after I restart the game while been playing with a normal FPS

I've turned off ALL settings within the Adrenaline software, Freesync, Vsync, Enhanced sync, chill, anti-lag etc.

The games being capped at 60 fps @ 1080p and 2K. If I switch resolution to 4K it uncaps it, this was not a problem I had with the old adrenalin version. While being capped at 60 FPS, it feels like v-sync/freesync/anti-lag/enhanced sync gets turned on despite being shown as OFF in both global and game specific settings. I get input delay, like I move the mouse and the aim is moved slightly afterwards.

I've also noted that global graphics settings always override my specific game settings within Adrenalin, as in if I turn on enhanced sync globally while turning it off for a specific game, it's still on for the specific game? And some settings seems to be on even if they're displayed as OFF.

Side question:

Is it possible to scale down the UI? The graphs, text and what not is way too big (Looks like 200 dpi or something). Seriously, why can't AMD make some decent software? Old adrenalin did not work very well, this one has potential (I like the settings) but it kinda feels like they pushed out a dev version.

For instance, the radeon overlay won't always scale properly going from a game to windows or vice versa.

Radeon overlay jumps back and forth from primary to secondary screen.

The red line in the top-left shown when "Recording" is active is always being displayed.

I probably won't buy another AMD product ever again, I mean the card is good but there's so much failures in the software and drivers that it's not worth using this crap. (I've already sent failure reports through the AMD online form, gotten no response what so ever.)

On a second thought, I'll never buy any of this crap again. This was a $640 dollar card, I'll happily pay NVIDIA $100 more for the same performance given that their products actually WORKS AT ANY GIVEN TIME.

Thank you for your time (and answers if you have any).

Re: Radeon 2020, 60 FPS cap

I have exactly the same problem, and I am really angry about it... seriously older driver worked like a charm, the new one is unusable. If I uninstall 2020 driver and install older, I get huge FPS drops, so somehow I cant even roll back after installing this new driver.

I tried disabling everything and sometimes it works, the input lag goes away, but after every restart it screws up again and I am really out of ideas what option makes this problem.

Re: Radeon 2020, 60 FPS cap

Okay, I reinstaled Windows, installed newest driver, and I am using eSports profile, because Gaming profile has horrible tearing, and seems like its working for now,
