Dear AMD, we've had over 10 driver updates since the card was released and you still haven't fixed the H264 issue, being that H264 acceleration is a stated feature of this card, at what point do we need to return these cards which we bought for our HTPC machines as "not fit for purpose"?



  • H.264 content playback may experience playback issues on internet browsers with hardware acceleration when also running gaming applications or content.


  • H.264 content may experience blocky corruption when streaming using P2P content players on some Radeon RX 400 series graphics products.


I'm obviously aware of the workaround, turn hardware acceleration off and let my CPU do the work, if I wanted to do that I wouldn't have bothered buying the card in the first place, I would have just upgraded my CPU and motherboard and gone.


Please provide a time frame for a fix on this, I think we've waited long enough now, you are taking the p!ss.
