Adrenalin + RX Vega + Fallout4 + Exiting Game = Unstable/Corrupt Windows Desktop

Question asked by mrzoner on Feb 5, 2018

With either 18.1.1 or 18.2.1 Adrenalin Drivers, whenever I exit a session of Fallout 4 the desktop of my primary monitor becomes unstable.   My guess it is some kind of Enhanced Sync/Freesync issue.   The desktop is technically 'visible' but everything flickers and shifts around on the screen which screams some kind of hsync or timing issue to me.   Only the primary monitor is affected, the secondary displays normally.   The last few 17.x drivers all work fine, the issue was definitely introduced in 18.1.1.   A clean install of a 17.12.1 or 17.11.x series will run fine.

 

System specs are

Ryzen 1800X on ASUS C6H

Sapphire RX Vega 64

Win 10 Pro 16229

2x Nixeus 2560x1440 144Hz freesync monitors, both using DP connection

The GPU is at stock clocks and is using the Balanced GPU profile.

The game is set to use Enhanced Sync (as well as global settings)
