AMD Drivers


pio

Recommended Posts

Okay seriously, let's talk about AMD's drivers.  Yes, there's legitimate reasons why people don't like them.  One CAN say the same about Nvidia's drivers too, let's be fair to both sides.

I just had the weirdest problem with my 7900XTX though.  When I first built the rig, it ran fantastically!  I installed the latest 24.1.1 WHQL official drivers, and I started having random freezing happen.  Turns out, its a Freesync bug.  I turned off Freesync and the problems went away.

That's why I'm here to plug the after market drivers. 🙂

Seriously, if anybody happens to have any weird bugs, glitches, or breaking problems with official AMD drivers for ANY GPU from the HD5000 series and newer GPU's (so the last decade +)......go try those drivers.  They work REALLY well.

That is all.  Just wanted to spread the good word. 🙂

Just a side note about AMD drivers, one thing I love is the control panel and tuning options. The control panel is way better than Nvidia's. No need to sign in to anything to record videos. System tuning options for CPU and GPU built in. I used the control panel to auto OC my CPU, and I have my GPU a little underclocked and set to quiet mode. I never hear the fans ramp up at all and the performance difference seems to be entirely negligible.

Nope, not at all.  You're actually given the option between installing 4 different styles of CCC control panel.  Personally, I usually install the standard "Adrenaline" version of CCC.  I've seen others install the Pro version though.

You can literally mix and match your driver kernal and your version of CCC.  They've even backported the AFMF feature back onto every driver released in 2023.  (Note: AFMF only works on 6000 and 7000 series cards though)

Agreed.  I actually do REALLY appreciate the Adrenaline interface of CCC much moreso than Nvidia's 1998 style.  And that's coming from a retro gamer.  🤣  Nvidia's driver DOES have the advantage of their UI being the same across the years and releases though.  I guess that's a plus.

Personally i can't stand the Amd interface i find it horrendous with ways too many tab for no reason.

Am old school i prefer program for tuning and driver to be separate. Instead of having top of the line msi afterburner. We now have half baked amd software.

 

My mobile 6800m seem to run great with the default driver but i wonder if they have a custom one for mobile. For some reason the new AFMF seem to do nothing in Ark Ascended meanwhile Nvidia frame gen double fps. Not exactly the same tech so i can't complain. Will test in more game sooner or later 😄

Im on 24.1.1 with a 7900 XTX and have not experienced any issues.

 

Further, since owning this card from day 1 (December 2022), the drivers have been very stable. There were only two notable bugs that impacted me indirectly.

 

1. the high idle power consumption, which has been resolved (well mitigated).

2. Unable to launch the GUI / control panel via a shortcut. At some point I needed to wipe the driver or dig into the root folder and delete .ini type file for it to work again.

 

I’m not sure if the issue is tied to the drivers but have you checked the “known issues” tab? Might just be a conflict that can temporarily be avoided until a fix is in place because I don’t experience this free sync bug with my 1440p / 120hz Asus monitor.

Is this just a thing with chiplet design? I noticed my 5900X idles pretty high too.
