I've noticed quite a bit of system crashes since 20.3.1, seems to crash the system at least once a day (frozen screen, rapidly repeating sound and then restart). Has anyone else noticed more frequent crashes since this new driver?
Yes - seeing more crashes on 20.3.1. I've noticed the manual fan tuning goes out of whack, GPU fan drops to 0 RPM, and my PC crashes shortly thereafter. Running RX590 GPU, Ryzen 7 3700X CPU w/32GB of RAM, ASUS ROG Strix X570-E motherboard. 20.3.1 is definitely causing stability issues. The crashes happen when the system is sitting idle (not during gaming - gaming seems fine, until the system is idle for awhile, that's when the crashes occur - difficult to replicate but they do happen consistently).
I've also noticed other instabilities, in some games the screen will go black or the game will get minimized and then the sound won't work. This driver is a mess.
At least you can get to your desktop. As soon as I tried to install 20.3.1, it installed, and as soon as AMD Radeon Software tries to load my monitors go black and all my fans jump to max, and that's it. Same with a reboot, I put in my password, go to the desktop for a few seconds, until AMD Radeon software tries to load, and black screens again. At least I keep system restore points. If it matter, I'm using an AsRock B450 Gaming K4 Mobo, Teamgroup ddr4 at 3000mhz, a Ryzen 2600, and an XFX Rx570 8GB, all new parts, just built this thing a couple months ago. I can't believe they can't even get Polaris card drivers right. Have no problems with the 20.2 series drivers, wanted to update for Doom Eternal, but I guess thats out. Anyway, maybe if I hit enough of these posts, someone at AMD will see this. Here is the relevant event logs.

Yup, I think I'm going to revert back to 20.2.2. I wonder if they are all shut down right now, we might not see a new driver for a while.
I just changed my graphics card earlier this week. I went from an RX570 to an RX5700XT.
Standard upgrade procedure: DDU, drivers update, DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, SFC /SCANNOW...
I didn't have a single problem with the previous card. I now have the same problems as shown here. Brief black screen (completely random), or complete crash.
Most of the time, I don't have any problems in game. On the other hand, crashes always happen as soon as I use my webcam!
I don't know if it's related but I can see that the UVD clock goes up to maximum just before the crash. If I stop the webcam in time, the crash doesn't happen but the UVD clock stays at maximum. Once I launch a video on youtube, for example, the UVD clock goes back down!
Was there a more stable driver version?
