5700xt weird windowed mode

Hello, when I start my games it launches in a weird windowed mode, my screen is full but the game is only at the top left quarter of my screen, the rest of the screen is black. I need to switch the game from 1080p to 1440p then come back to 1080p to get a full screen and when I close my game my desktop is zoomed on the top left corner and i can't see the rest, I need to unplug my monitor then plug it back.

I have a 1440p 144hz monitor and a 5700xt Nitro+ that just arrived today.

AMD is changing windows of games. Maybe it provides performance, maybe stabilization. I do not know. All I know is this a driver problem.


Idk the weird part is that I can only see the upper left corner in game but when I quit and return on my desktop, that is the opposite, I'm zoomed on that upper left corner. I also need to unplug the power source of my monitor, just turning it off won't work but unplugging the power cable while the monitor is on works and everything is back to normal.

You're not alone, lots of people having this problem, the GPU scaling is broken at the moment.

Latest driver fixed the issue even if it wasn't in the release notes.
