5700xt black screen crashes

I know that the driver patch notes say that this is a known issue but I also saw a post by AMD saying to add to the topic if you are experiencing issues.  So here am I am in the hopes that we can get this fixed.


My system:

  • AMD Graphics Card:
    • Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700XT
  • Desktop with Windows 10 64bit
  • Driver version installed
    • Crashes happen on 20.4.2 and 20.8.1.  Currently I'm on 20.8.1
  • Display Devices
    • Acer IPS XF270HU  display port 2560 x 1440 @144hz
  • Motherboard + Bios Revision
    • MSI MEG Z490 Unify
    • I9-10900
  • Power Supply Unit  Make, Model & Wattage
    • Corsair RM650x, 650W
  • RAM
    • 16GB


Describe your issue:

  • I have experienced black screen crashes in Sniper Elite 4, Assassins Creed Odyssey, and Rocket League.  I have had it happen on medium, high, and ultra. I have also tried after looking at the patch notes turning off enhanced sync.  I have experienced these issues while doing auto overclock and turning overclocking off.  It doesn't happen right away but happens after some time of playing the game, I do not believe it is a consistent interval though, seems to be at random times.
