As of now im with 19.12.1 drivers and they run very good on my Sapphire vega 56 playing (only for now) Red Dead Redemption 2 since it launched on steam

when i installed the new adrenalin 2020 (19.12.2) it messed up the whole game.... stutters everywhere, gpu utilization not at 99% like normal (around 50%~75%).... conclusion... unplayable! had to roll back.


than the new 19.12.3 came out so i tried it and at first all the problems i mentioned seemed to be gone but i did notice my wattage was way higher (normally around 200w with oc/uv but with the 19.12.3 around 220~265w!!!)

Conclusion: my card was kinda getting hot... gpu and mem temps close to the 70º where normally im at 58º~60º with older drivers... was getting huge pink artifacts when mem was at 72º and gpu at 70º...


like i said before, now with the 19.12.1 temps, wattage and performance are pretty good!

AMD plz fix this, i want the new software features!

i7 4770k @ 4.4ghz
