RX 560 issue with latest drivers

Jump to solution

Hello. I bought RX560 in 2020 and used drivers from 2019 I believe. 
Currently I updated drivers to latest version because some games can't even launch without them.
Games are starting now, but I noticed significant FPS drop in games. Horizon zero dawn had near 30 fps before and now it turned into unplayable 12-15 FPS. 
Also I started facing some crashes. Crashes happen if I use browser to open some sites. Crashes are usually happen on dark themed sites with dark colors.

I installed driver 20.7.2 and my gpu started working again. But this is a horrible solution and doesn't matter for me because as I said in my deleted(by amd mods) post, I bought a new gpu from nvidia and happy with it, because it doesn't have any issues with latest drivers.

Are you streaming video at the same time as playing?

The release notes for the latest driver says there maybe driver timeouts on 500 series cards..

AMD Ryzen 7 3700x, Sapphire RX580 Nitro 8gb, Asus TUF Gaming x570 Plus, 32gb Corsair Vengeance 3000mhz, Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1tb NVME, Samsung 960 EVO 500gb NVME, WD Black 1tb, Crucial 525gb MX300 SSD, Sandisk Ultra 500gb SSD... Lian Li Galahad AIO 240mm, Seasonic X850 PSU.

Have you assigned the high performance card to the game?

Definitely more than a "maybe" here. RX580, tried upgrading to latest drivers last night - immediately started having almost constant driver timeouts, in one case before Windows even finished loading, or right after opening Firefox. Made most games unplayable and normal use of my system basically impossible.

Had to do a clean install of 21.6.1 to get things working again.

Hate to be a little hyperbolic, but this level of QA (or lack thereof) is ridiculous - yes, 21.8.1 is optional, but imho these drivers shouldn't be offered as updates at all for 500-series cards if they're going to break things that badly.
