Warning message when launching Fortnite, known issues with graphics driver

Hello all,

I just recently started receiving the error below while launching Fortnite. I am running the latest driver version 22.5.2. I only receive this message while launching Fortnite and no other games. The game is pretty unplayable in the current state. Is anyone else running into this issue? Thanks in advance for any help.

Nothing yet

I also have the same issue. I downgraded my drivers to the recommended version but the game is still unplayable. 

Do you think this is possibly a result of a windows update? Did you by chance just run these windows 10 updates? I wonder if uninstalling these updates from yesterday and today would be a hotfix. 




I'm not sure if it has anything to do with windows. I only started receiving this message after the recent fortnite update. 

Interesting, well I guess we're left sitting tight waiting for an update

what im doing for now is just go back and downdload amd 22.2.2 to play fortnite until a patch or fix comes out. the game is normal on 22.2.2. i really dont know what caused this bug though

What frames are you getting on version 22.2.2? When I tried using it I couldn't even get a 100 fps and I usually have a steady 200 fps. 

This is odd because I get the message, however I see no performance issues with the game so it may be a combination of your hardware as well as drivers.

I am running:

  • Gigabyte RX 6800 XT Gaming OC
  • Ryzen 7 3700X
  • Corsair H100i Elite Capellix 240MM AIO 
  • 4x8GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro at 3200Mhz
  • MSI MPG X570 Gaming Edge Wifi
  • WDBlack SN750 1TB NVMe PCIe 3.0 M.2 SSD
  • Crucial P2 500 GB NVMe PCIe 3.0 M.2 SSD
  • Crucial MX500 1TB SATA SSD
  • Corsair RM850x 850w 80Plus Bronze PSU

I don't think it is a Windows update as I haven't updated for a few days and Fortnite updated earlier when I launched Epic Games Launcher.


im getting regular 240 on 22.2.2 but if i wanna go on my editing software, i have to install the latest driver so idk what to do.


That is strange. Did you all download the new version of 22.5.2? I haven't touched it because I have the 22.5.2 from May. It doesn't make sense to me that 22.5.2 is rereleasing. Should it not be 22.6.1? That tends to be the naming scheme for the drivers Year 22 Month 6 Revision 1. Either way if you did update to the new 22.5.2 I suggest trying to find the original.


mine is unplayable on either version of the update tbh

I Had the same issue and message, I recently bought myself a MSI 6650 XT and when going on fortnite I get the exact same message.
The issue is I cannot downgrade to 22.2.2 as they do not support my card, So unfortunately until they do a Update I am stuck with lag. Really hope a patch comes out soon

Thanks for all of your posts, we are looking into this.

For me issue is gone after installing latest drivers 22.6.1

My system:

Auros Z390 Pro


Crucial - BL16G26C16U4W.16FD x 2  (32 gb)

Samsung EVO 860 500 gb

Sapphire RX 580 8gb

MSI G271 Monitor


Recently installed 22.5.1 Adrenalin drivers, and I get the same message launching Fortnite to downgrade to 22.2.2.

The game has been running fine for me with an average FPS at 120. ( My monitor is only capable of 120 refresh rate, so I have Fortnite settings at capped at 144 )

I do see it go above 120 fps when in game.

I also have textures set to medium, shadows off, view distance at epic (suggested optimizations to max fps)


So I'm also waiting to see if there is any solution or fix for this warning.

Thank you.
