Shader cache only generates 64KB files?

Hey folks,

 

Recently got my Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700 XT and whenever I play Destiny 2 I seem to experience a bug that was fixed back in the April 2018 18.5.1 update: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-rad-win-18-5-1

 

The game gets progressively slower and slower to load into events, locations, open inventory, everything. Initially it starts snappy and doesn't take more than 30 seconds to load into anything, after about 30 minutes to an hour the load times start to increase quickly to 5 or more minutes.

 

Upon looking into this slow down I found a lot of posts on reddit about the Radeon software only generating 64KB cache files. Considering this one https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/8cty1t/regarding_the_shader_cache_postadrenaline_17121/?utm_medium=android_app&utm…  was posted just before the 18.5.1 driver update I have to imagine it's the same issue and is now affecting navi cards as this issue was not prevalent on my RX 590 which my buddy uses with no issues.

 

Is anyone else experiencing this issue with their 5700 series cards? Is this a known issue and is being worked on?
