AMD has announced the latest version of its Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition. This update (v20.2.2) is described as "optional", yet also purports to bring a long list of bug and issue fixes. They include problems such as hanging, crashes or black screens in apps and games that include Chrome, The Witcher 3 and GTA V.
Deirdre O Donnell,

AMD has announced a new update for the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition. Known as version 20.2.2, its changelog claims to address numerous problems that users may have encountered while running its predecessor. Nevertheless, it is also associated with some new bugs of its own, which include the possibility of "intermittent" system hanging or app crashes while playing DOOM, or while running Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers' benchmark.

However, Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.2.2 may fix bugs in which black screens or crashes were experienced while running a variety of apps or games, some of which occurred in response to doing normal innocuous things such as toggling HDR on or off. They include Grand Theft Auto V; The Witcher 3; Fortnite; Google Chrome; Metro Exodus and Battlefield V

These issues, along with others on this log, may have been associated with the use of RX 5000- or RX 5700-series cards. In addition, the new driver download may also fix issues with some Radeon Software features such as WattMan, Instant Replay, Performance Metrics Overlay and the Radeon Chill hotkey. The full log of potential solutions conferred by 20.2.2 can be found on its new page on AMD's website.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
