With the new Adrenalin 22.10.2 graphics driver, which has already been certified by WHQL, AMD is fixing many bugs in graphics cards of the Radeon RX 6000 family of products. For example, problems with Radeon Super Resolution and HDR in the RPG Nioh 2 And with a corrected HEVC encoder.

Product Maintenance for AMD Radeon RX 6000

  • Generally setting vertical refresh sync to Always Off may cause system crashes or driver timeouts while playing video with Radeon™ RX 6000 series GPUs.
  • Driver using HEVC hardware encoding may time out on Radeon™ RX 6000 series GPUs.
  • Falling frames may occur during video playback using hardware acceleration on Chromium-based browsers with Radeon™ RX 6000 series GPUs.

  • The Oculus dashboard menu and controllers shown may appear bouncing/wobbly on the Oculus Quest 2 with some AMD Graphics products such as the Radeon™ RX 6800 XT Graphics.
  • While previewing the timeline in VEGAS Pro™, some colors may appear inverted.
