Setup:

i7-3960X

Asus P9X79

16GB DDR3

Apacer 256GB SSD

2x RX480 8GB Crossfire (Powercolor Ref)

Win10 Pro x64 18362.116 (1903)

 

Symptoms:

*During driver install, monitor goes off and on a few times as usual, but comes back with a RED tinted desktop.

*Crossfire NOT being utilized, 2nd GPU inactive during full screen mode, does not work in any game it used to.

*FPS super laggy, sub 20-ish.

*Constant blue screens, which usually leads to yet another blue screen even after reboot (BAD_POOL_CALLER).

*File system corruption got so bad with all the random crashes, in the end I got SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED boot loop. Had to reformat SSD and reinstall Win10.

 

Summary:

*All above 100% reproducible at CPU/GPU default settings and confirmed not OC related.

*Observed same bad behavior with 19.5.1

*Went to back 19.4.3 and everything back to normal.

 

Trade show just around the corner, so please don't make yourselves look bad. Kindly fix soon.
