    Black Screen Crashes on id Tech Games (RX 480)


      I keep getting crashes to a black screen in Dishonored 2 (which uses a modified version of id Tech 5) and Quake Champions (Runs on id Tech 6). I have not experienced these crashes in DOOM though which uses id Tech 6 and it didn't crash in both Open GL and Vulkan. The crash starts with the game freezing, followed by a black screen, then a hard restart. I do not receive any crash logs from the games so I cannot provide any. I am using the latest drivers as of 6/15/2017. Please ask if you need more information to provide a useful answer.


      My PC Specs

      CPU: AMD A8-6600K

      GPU: RX 480

      Ram: 8GB

      OS: Windows 10

          FX8320 is min spec for D2 (and seems it struggles going by some reviews), have they patched the memory leak yet, look in event viewer for Resource exhausted (i gave up on the demo).

          Can't say for QC.
