I had a similar question when I read the release notes. Why no mention if the Radeon Vega and Polaris improvements also apply to older GCN Cards?
I would guess Vega (GCN 5) improvements might be applicable to Fiji based GPU (GCN 3) like R9 Fury, Nano, Fury X and Radeon Pro Duo (~= Dual R9 Nano on 1 card).
As far as I see it, Vega is ~= shrink of Fiji with faster clocks and HBM2.
Regarding older GCN cards, it would als be nice to know if improvements also apply to those cards.
I noticed the following issue on 18.2.2 - look at the temperature and fan values on the Wattman Overlay for R9 Nano.
The Performance Overlay for the HD 7970 OC 6GB.
The performance Overlay for the R9 280X.
The Temperature reported in the popup is either the Fan RPM (in the case of the R9 Nano) or the Manual % setting for the fan speed in the case of HD7900 or R9 200 series. Fan speeds are zero in the popup.
Pretty sure I filed AMD Reporting form on this one this one years ago, I will do so again.
It is a minor point but I must admit to panicking a little when I saw the GPU Temp on my R9 Nano at 1659'C in the popup ...
One other issue, I already reported. Performance Overlay does not report GPU Power.
I'm having some issues with league of legends ... I have a Radeon RX 560, and when I'm with the screen stuck, the champion is shaking strangely . Is someone playing LOL going through the same problem as me?
I've seen two hangs with 18.2.2.
In both cases the machine was doing next to nothing: I was watching stocks with Fidelity's Active Trader Pro and the monitors blacked out and I had to reset the machine. There was nothing in the windows event log, aside from the complaints that the last boot was unexpected.
Similarly I left the machine running with no apps running and came back and it had hung after a few hours, the monitors were apparently in power save state but there was no way to wake up the computer. The windows event log indicates the machine hung around 3 hours after I left it unattended, and I have the monitors go to power save mode after 45 minutes of inactivity.
Sapphire's reference RX Vega 64 (Air), stock settings & balanced power profile
Two Nixeus NX-EDG 27 freesync monitors both connected using DP
Ryzen 1800X @ stock CPU clocks
32 GB RAM @ 3200 (g.skill flare X 4x8)
ASUS Crosshair VI Hero on the 6001 BIOS
The primary monitor also occasionally flashes its OSD as if a mode switch has occurred, from time to time. Running the GPU stress test portion of AIDA's system stability test seems to be able to cause this behavior as well.
Older drivers (from 17.x) work well for me.
Have had many issues with all 18. drivers to date on a Sapphire Pulse RX560OC 4G drivers & causing random boot hand if been left ruuning for 3-4 days a shutdown in the morning, wont boot pasttboot post first windows login on 10Pro already spoken about this. The Last of the 17.12 drivers were a lot better atm on 17.12.1 drivers. Not the best Relive & control panel laggy on shortcut keys. But i dont find a black screen after shutdown not my hardware. Running stable 8days on the 17.12.1 drivers not the best running on a Sandisk SSD. Drivers need a lot or work & you guys need to talk to Microsoft to help as well as its between bot since the updates between you both. Mine ran the best when i first got it running 17.12.2 drivers till the Jan wave of updates between both. Be happy to help as been a lot of issues driver wise with the 560 series cards a lot of us on here with them & with driver issues.
I am facing BSOD crashes since the first version of Adrenaline..
In Battlefield 1, "Child" doesn't work: it is capped to max rate defined.
Returning to Crimson solve the problems. I have tried several times, using DDU in safe mode, but no lucky.
I have report this to AMD, and several people talk about these issues:
My specs: Intel i7 6700K, Gigabyte Z170 X gaming 5, 16Gb DDR4 2133Mhz)
I just recently posted my own thread of my experience with the new driver and I was hoping someone would take a look at it and help me out, I'm absolutely stumped on this.(18.2.2) Has stopped my USB ports from working, and there is no display to bios.
I now tested as well:
1. Relive audio recording stutters
2. Didn't test much more
All the testing I needed
It seems Relive is broken since Adrenaline driver.
Back to 17.10
