RX 6800, apps not starting in fullscreen


New to the boards, so go easy on me.

Just purchased a Pulse RX6800, installing it was a breeze but using it, no so much.

Long story short, regardless of the drivers (from 22.5.1 to 23.2.2), whenever I try to start a game in fullscreen it crashes. Starting them in windowed mode, they work flawlessly and switching to fullscreen afterward none crash, not even after playing for a while.

Benchmarks Heaven, Valley work perfect from fullscreen on D3D and OpenGL, Kombustor works only in windowed mode, Superposition works well in 1080p Extreme, 2D texture creation error in 1440p, OpenGL doesn't start regardless.

No glitches, artifacts or stutters occur while playing or benchmarking, high FPS count, 200+ watts being given to the GPU.

Before I had a 5700xt that died, replaced it with my old 1060 until the RX6800 came in. Never had this issue with any of my previous cards.

Any thoughts? Don't know where to go from here, except a clean OS install.

Thank you in advance
