Did you pick upgrade over previous drivers or clean install? Sapphire RX 5700 XT + C32HG70, 19.10.1 fixed HDR for me, did clean install
I upgraded it. Will try a clean install this evening.
Uninstall with DDU
Install latest drivers 19.10.1
Will let you know if it worked
thank you for your reaction.
Gonna try it out!
Edit: Tried it out and it still isnt working normally as before with the RX 580.
Still washed out colours or everything is overbrightend.
Borderlands 3 and Destiny 2.
Can more people comfirm its working with the new drivers? I dont think so.
kaotik what game did you test?
I enabled HDR, started edge, youtube HDR Pure Video. It was washed out, but i selected the HDR output in youtube. Paused Video, switched HDR off. So im back to Normal display and then my colours look HDR like. See attachment on the left.
Started Chrome, same video. Paused on same frame and check this out (see attachment). It is doing something... But its not doing this in games.
Left is HDR with switch turned off AFTER starting the HDR video and right is with HDR switch off in Chrome. Side by side, not 2 pictures pasted together btw!
Yess.. I'm getting fade and washed out colors in every hdr game like forza 4, devil may cry 5, sekiro, far cry new dawn, hitman 2, mortal kombat 11. Only ac Odyssy hdr color was great and accurate. My monitor 27inch chg70 and using 5700xt reference edition.
I've tested Hitman & Hellblade 2, but that's not even relevant - you already know if it works or not on desktop simply from the display - if it says on Windows desktop that it's in DisplayPort HDR -state, then everything works, if not and it's in DisplayPort -state instead, it doesn't.
To be little more specific, I forgot to add my XT is Sapphires Pulse, not reference, not that it should matter. I had the same issues before these drivers, took the clean install option in the installer and Windows desktop took my display straight to DisplayPort HDR -state.
Dropping in to say I am having HDR issue on my Samsung cfg73 , my monitor does not support HDR but for some reason some games activate it (Ashen) causing my monitor to dim and colors are all washed out. I have to enable HDR off and on or on and off to re-set the colors. Using display port on 5700xt , talked about messed up!
I too am having this exact same issue and another one (see below in a response to the original poster I'll post in a bit).
To resolve the issue of leaving BF5 and HDR still being enabled forcing oyu to toggle on/off in display settings, go to the monitor's settings and set Freesync to 'Standard Engine' instead of 'Ultimate Engine'. If the framerates in the game you are playing are somewhat high then this works out good anyway as 'Standard Engine' is the best.
Doing this solved that problem for me. If only I could get past the other problem. See my response below.
To the original poster...
Yeah, I had a similar issue. But, it seems that has been resolved since new udpates, new OS udpates, and other such things.
I'm still having two issues:
- When I leave BF5 while playing the game in HDR and have the monitor Freesync set to 'Ultimate Engine', when I leave the game everything appears to be a bit dark which is mentioned above by someone else. I have to go to display settings and toggle HDR ON then back to OFF to get everything back to normal. Annoying but there is a fix. The good news I've found this issue goes away if Freesync is set to 'Standard engine' in the monitor settings. I could live with this if the following, second issue wasn't happening...
- It appears if I leave my system running for a bit then play a game, the monitor goes crazy for a bit. The screen will go in and out. Eventually, it may/may not go totally black. When this happens, sometimes I can change the Freesync mode of monitor and everything corrects itself, but not always. Sometimes I can hit CTRL-ALT-DEL and kill the game and that fixes everything, or do something to get back to the desktop such has hit ALT-TAB. Sometimes, I can't get back to the desktop at all as the screen goes black and stays that way. I have to power cycle the PC when that happens which is not good as you can imagine. After playing around with this, I think the problem occurs after the monitor goes to sleep which happens on my system after 10 minutes of inactivity. I have not been able to replicate the problem as long as the monitor does not go to sleep.
I had neither problem above with my Vega 64. I am currently using the reference 5700 XT.
Everyone, be sure to submit a problem ticket to AMD to get these problems resolved. If we bang AMD upside the head enough, we'll grab their attention.
My issues are a bit different from the original posters so I'm going to start a new forum thread and keep this conversation going!!
