I am writing this post because i've never seen this problem discussed or mentioned anywhere.

In the last 15 years i owned multiple graphics cards from both AMD and NVIDIA and i still have the corresponding systems up and running to test things with. Since I bought my current system after last chrismas i noticed something that buggs me. I can't seem to force any graphical options through the Radeon Software. I tried V-Sync, Morphological AA, MSAA, SSAA and AF but none of them seem to do anything. First I thought: "Okay, the current driver might be a little buggy." and so I tried the older 19.12.1 pre 2020 version. No change. Then I tried it on my older RX 590 system. No luck there as well. I then also tried my R9 390X and my very old 6970 on the 15.7.1 drivers. But it doesn't seems to work on any of them. I'm very puzzled by this and want to hear your experiences with the feature. Do they work for you? I'm sad because on my NVIDIA systems I use the feature to force AF and AA to for example GTA IV or Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2005).

 

My test systems for overview:

System 1 (primary):
-Ryzen 9 3950X
-32GB (2x16GB) 3600CL16

-ASrock X570 Taichi

-A12-9800
-16GB (2x8GB) 2400CL15
-Radeon RX 590
-Asus X370 Prime A

-FX-8370
-16GB (2x8GB) 1866CL9
-Radeon R9 390X
-Asus 970 Pro Gaming Aura

System 4:

-Counter-Strike
-Counter-Strike: Source
-Battlefield 2
-Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2005)

Doesn't this feature work for you as well? I'm a little bit at a loss and I have no ideas left.
