Ever since AMD started releasing new drivers for Navi, some Vega 56 functionality ended up seemingly broken for owners of Helios 500 laptop with Ryzen/Vega (and yes I picked Vega 56 for my drivers - obviously).


As described in the title, with newest drivers, every time I bring the laptop (Helios 500 with  Ryzen 2700 and Vega 56)  out of sleep mode, the display turns on with static noise which doesn't go away until I hard shut down the laptop and start it up again.


This issue is NOT present on 19.5.2, and 19.6.2 drivers (laptop wakes up normally after sleep with those drivers and I can resume working because I get a proper picture on the display).


I'm using Windows 10 x64 Home with latest updates.

I uploaded both a picture and a short video of the problem.

Is AMD even aware of this issue or have they simply stopped supporting/caring about Vega?

There are new games and things I'd like to use with latest drivers, but this particular problem is forcing me to remain on older drivers so I can use the sleep mode (which is kind of a deal breaker for me).
