Some Samsung™ CRG9 series displays may experience a black screen when waking from sleep.
Metro Exodus™ may experience intermittent application crashes with DirectX® Raytracing enabled.
Video playback on secondary displays may experience stutter while playing Doom Eternal™ on the primary display.”
However, there are some known issues that are yet to be fixed. These include-
“Hitman 3™ may experience an application crash in the Apex Predator mission on Radeon RX 6000 series graphics products.
Radeon FreeSync may fail to enable in Forza Horizon 4™.
AMD is currently investigating end-user reports that Radeon Software may sometimes have higher than expected CPU utilization, even when a system is idle. Users who are experiencing this issue are encouraged to file a bug report in Radeon Software.
Brightness flickering may intermittently occur in some games or applications when Radeon™ FreeSync is enabled, and the game is set to use borderless fullscreen.
Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.”
Well, these known issues are being worked on and will be fixed as soon as possible. So, either follow the temporary measures suggested by AMD or wait for them to fix the issues with the introduction of another new update.
