Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.6.2 Highlights

Added Vulkan™ Support

VK_EXT_host_query_reset
Allows resets of queries from the host, rather than on the GPU.

VK_EXT_full_screen_exclusive
Gives applications explicit control over exclusive full-screen modes (this is for instance useful for HDR support).

VK_AMD_display_native_hdr
Exposes FreeSync2 capabilities for improved HDR support.

VK_EXT_separate_stencil_usage
Separates the usage flags for depth/stencil aspects of a depth/stencil image making it possible to restrict/expand the usage relative to the depth aspect.

VK_KHR_uniform_buffer_standard_layout
Provides more flexible alignment for uniform buffers, enabling among other things, the usage of std430 layouts in Vulkan.

Fixed Issues

Wireless VR may experience performance drops across multiple game titles on some Radeon RX 400 and Radeon RX 500 series graphics products.

Performance Metrics Overlay may fail to enable or may be disabled when toggling Radeon Overlay while in game.

A TDR may occur when exiting some gaming applications that are using DirectX®12 API when multiple displays are connected and in clone mode.

Microsoft® PIX tool may fail when a GPU is connected using AMD XConnect™ Technology.

Crackdown™3 may experience an application or game hang on Radeon R7 370 series graphics products.

Known Issues

Radeon ReLive streaming and uploading of videos and other content to Facebook™ is currently unavailable.

ASUS TUF Gaming FX505 may experience discrete GPU connection issues with devices disappearing from device manager when the system is idle.

Performance Metrics Overlay and Radeon WattMan gauges may experience inaccurate fluctuating readings on AMD Radeon VII.

ACER Swift 3 with AMD Ryzen Processor may experience system instability when upgrading to Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.6.2 using the Custom Clean Installation option.

Graphics driver may not uninstall correctly when using the express uninstall option on some Ryzen APUs.

Seems to be a major improvement over the last driver update, at least on my system. Haven't run any benchmarks, but it doesn't appear to have the poor frametimes as before.

I noticed 19.15.2 and 19.16.1 both locked the HBM2 frequency to 800Mhz when anything was open in the background. As soon as I close any background application the HBM speeds jump right up to 1250Mhz. I reported the issue, I'm curious if it was fixed on the Radeon VII.

It seems to be fixed, at least on v64. Right now, not running any gpu intensive tasks, memory frequency is sitting at 800. It doesn't look like it scales lower than 800, at least so far. Goes up to my OC (1065) when in game. One thing that was weird, was during the install everything turned green for about ten seconds. Never seen that before.

Just noticed I'm jumping way ahead with my driver versions. I noticed the issue starting with 19.4.1 where my screen would turn green and purple. Seems like a common issue with the driver installation since that release.

Weird. At first, I thought something broke. 19.4.2 was the last good driver for my system. This release is working out good, so far.

Vulkan fixes! Good news there.
