AMD released its fourth version of the driver this month, this week’s Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.1.4. The new drive has optimized support for games such as Blizzard’s Warcraft 3: Remake and Typhoon Studios’ Wild Planet Tour, both scheduled for release on January 28, in addition to bug fixes and known issues.

Although AMD did not elaborate on any specific improvements to the driver, it said that the 20.1.4 driver improved the performance of Warcraft 3: Remake by 11% compared to last week’s 20.1.3 drive.
Testing high preset parameters based on the RX 5700 XT graphics card, the frame rate jumped from 211.1 to 234.9 fps. Here are some of the issues that the 20.1.4 driver fixes:
(1) When using the Vulkan API, Red Dead Redemption 2 or encounter square or blocky textures on certain terrains;
(2) causing Vulkan game crash or application to hang when image enhancement is enabled, or when task switching occurs;
(3) In certain language environments, toast messages or text overflow s
(4) When Radeon Software is turned on, Radeon ReLive may not be able to switch recordings to the desktop;
(5) After opening Radeon Overlay in the game, or after a task switch in the game, GTA 5 or encounter a suspended or black screen at startup;
(6) Radeon ReLive recording may intermittently lose audio near the end of the recorded clip;
(7) In some Windows 7 system configurations, the ‘integer scaling’ option is not displayed or unavailable.

Here are some known issues:
(1) When performing mode changes on the Radeon RX 5000 Series GPU, or when audio is lost on a limited number of displays;
(2) Running the Final Fantasy 14: Shadow Seion benchmark test may cause the system to crash or hang;
(3) When the display resolution setting is less than the original resolution, integer scaling may cause some video content to appear flickering;
(4) When HDR is enabled in Windows, graphics for multiple games may be too light or too dark;
(5) Radeon Anti-Lag causes an error when the assigned hot key is pressed separately;
(6) Radeon Software coverage hotkey notifications may be displayed when playing video sin in a web browser, or when launching certain video player applications;
(7) The size of Radeon Software may not be consistent when turned on, or the size of its previous settings may not be maintained when it is turned on;
(8) Some Radeon RX 5700 Series GPUs may intermittently encounter a black screen on a game or desktop. A temporary solution is to disable hardware acceleration in a background-running application, such as a web browser or Discord.
