I too have 20.4.2 installed and have not had any Blackscreen/Hard Crashes for over a week now. Playing various games, using the card for various "work from home" implementations due to COVID, so on so forth. There's still the occasional flickering and mouse pointer issues when dealing with my dual-monitor setup but I'm happy with the progress they're making so far!
My system has been pretty stable for the last few weeks - I'm running 20.4.2 and I'm playing a TON of COD Warzone without any major issues...
Having seen a couple of the success stories with driver 20.4.2, I decided to take the plunge again today. Tested Half Life: Alyx again and it didn’t crash at all. Some frametime issues sure, but nothing that wasn’t there before to my knowledge.
I’m gonna try the VII again for a little while, see how it goes. So far it’s stable, but I’m noticing it’s not drawing much power.. it’s 300W TDP but in GTA V it’s not drawing more than 180W at peak, leading to what looks like a lower framerate than it should be producing. Anybody experienced this?
Haven't seen any problems at all on the frame rate side: I'm running a 2560X1600 game screen; Warzone 60FPS (ALL ultra settings & set to max 60fps), CSGO same results (Was getting 240fps when not limited).
Ran some benchmark tests this morning to compare against the 2080 Super; ended up finding that the performance numbers from the VII were exactly what I was seeing before, and that card has simply ended up being more power efficient. Never thought I'd see the day! I can't deny I'm pretty annoyed that this happened right after I bought a replacement graphics card, but I'm grateful to AMD for finally releasing fixes for these problems.
I'd need to do a complete play through of Half Life: Alyx before I could claim it's completely fixed, but the results I've seen so far are really great. 20.4.2 is the one.
You guys must be seriously lucky.
I came from a 1080Ti recently to a watercooled VII.
What a sh** show when it comes to Overclocking and black screens.
I've reinstalled Windows, tried drivers from 19.12 to 20.5.1 all DDU'd etc, flashed the older bios above which my card already had.
Games just black screen and then reboot my PC a short while later, benchmarks can get through and maybe 2-5 mins of benchmark loops in game (World War Z for example)
Adding volts doesn't seem to help at all. Tried even 2075/1240mv.
Came from team green back to red after being a long time fanboi but my hell what has happened.
Currently on 20.4.2 and it's no better than any of the others I've tried.
im on 20.4.2 and its the best overall, i just got a black screen and had to reboot for the first time in weeks but with a new game (ark) still, so sad.
in have had same issue i have RMA the radeon vii and when it returns it will be sold on a internet auction site, i will never buy a amd gpu again until they fix all the issues. no point paying high end prices for a crap product that always crashes. would you buy a car that always cut out and left you stuck at the kerb?
