Suggestions For Radeon Software

I have some suggestions.

1. Create a "AMD Suggestions Report Tool" like you have for bugs.

2. The AMD Cleanup Utility program should also be able to remove AMD Chipset drivers. Or create a new tool for it. https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/gpu-601

3. Please explain the improvements made in the Ryzen 3600XT, 3800XT and 3900XT. I am curious. It was never really explained. I recently got a 3800XT and what to know how exactly it is different.

4. The AMD Chipset installer should tell you what versions you already have installed. It is strange that it doesn't tell you.

5. Please support SAM Smart Access Memory on Zen 2 eventually. There is no good reason not to. Because of AMD's lack of official support for Zen 3 on older flagship motherboards (like my $350 Crosshair VI Extreme) I cannot get a Zen 3 CPU. This lack of support is causing the AMD motherboard community to fracture as seen here. Crosshair VI Hero: UEFI build update thread - Page 271 (asus.com) 

6. My Vega 64 LC is still missing manual control options in the Tuning section of the Radeon software that the manual indicates should be there. I have reported this before. Please address this. If you install a Vega 64 LC and open the manual Tuning section of the software - then compare it to the manual - you will see some things are missing. https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/dh2-020

7. There are 4 Auto Tuning options in the Radeon software. Default, Undervolt GPU, Overlock GPU, and Overlock VRAM. It only allows you to do one at a time. It seems to me it should allow you to combine them if you want. And also you also should be able to alter variables when doing auto tuning like JayzTwoCents suggests here in this video: https://youtu.be/WPfWu0n_y24?t=584

8. There are 3 Presets in the Radeon software. Power Saver, Balanced, and Turbo. You can select one but it does not tell you what they do. Please fix this. Tooltips can be used for this purpose.

9. Frame Rate Target Control (FRTC) needs to be brought back into the driver ASAP. It never should have been removed. Radeon Chill is not the same thing.

10. Another version of Radeon Boost should be created/added to the Radeon software which allows you to set a target framerate and have the resolution change dynamically to maintain that target framerate. Which is how dynamic resolution works very well on consoles.

11. JayzTwoCents has identified some kind of problem it seems with the 6900XT: https://youtu.be/-PtTUnj4od4

12. Please tell Microsoft to enable full manual control of drivers and software in Windows Update. Windows Update continues to screw up PC gamers' systems because it downloads software and drivers automatically and you can't stop it unless you have Windows 10 Pro. If you have normal Windows 10 you can only stop the updates temporarily. There is an obscure Windows tool that allows you to "hide" updates but that is not a good solution. How to temporarily prevent a driver update from reinstalling in Windows 10 (microsoft.com)

13. Please explain and/or remove the "AMD Ryzen Balanced" powerplan from the Windows 10 power settings. I don't understand why it's still there. How is it different than the default Windows "Balanced"? Nothing is explained. 


14. It would be nice if the Radeon software had built in benchmarking tools for testing your overclocks.

15. Please add more metrics like CPU Temperature to the Radeon metrics overlay.

16. Please fix the Radeon driver install process like Nvidia did with their driver a while ago. Windows Update needs to be paused while the driver is being installed. Re: No Check for Updates option in AMD Radeon Sett... - Page 2 - AMD Community

Thank you for your great products and hard work!
