AMD warns that when playing Control using DirectX 12 and an AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card, users may experience distorted light beams. At the same time, the manufacturer fixed a bug in the Medium game in the new driver version, when it could crash after starting while FrameView was running.

The company also reported a list of known issues:

  • updating to the latest driver may cause the automatic update feature to stop working on the Ryzen Master. As a temporary solution, it is suggested to manually update the Ryzen Master;
  • While playing Control using DirectX 12, users may see distorted light beams on some AMD graphics cards, such as the Radeon RX 6600 XT;
  • Driver timeouts may occur when playing a game and streaming video at the same time on some AMD graphics products such as the Radeon RX 500 series.
  • Users may experience difficulty logging out of the OBS recording session when recording in H265 / HEVC codec on some AMD graphics products such as the Radeon RX 6800XT.
  • AMD Radeon software may crash or become unresponsive when you play certain DirectX 11 games, such as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, with multiple connected displays in extended mode.
  • Playing Horizon Zero Dawn for an extended period may cause the driver to time out or crash on some AMD graphics products such as the Radeon RX 6700 XT.
  • advanced sync may cause a black screen on startup in some games and system configurations. Users who may have problems with enabled extended sync should disable it;
  • Connecting two displays with large differences in resolution or refresh rates may cause flickering on Radeon RX Vega series graphics cards.
  • Radeon performance metrics and logging features can intermittently report very high and incorrect memory clock speeds.
