Support For

  • Windows® May 2020 Update

By moving scheduling responsibilities from software into hardware, this feature has the potential to improve GPU responsiveness and to allow additional innovation in GPU workload management in the future. This feature is available on Radeon RX 5600 and Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products.
Known Issues
  • Oculus™ VR headsets may not display content or may experience severe performance drops with Hardware Scheduling enabled.

  • Using Edge™ web browser to playback video content with a multi display system configuration may cause a system hang or crash after extended periods of use.
  • Performance Metrics Overlay and Radeon WattMan incorrectly report higher than expected idle clock speeds on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products. Performance and power consumption are not impacted by this incorrect reporting.
  • Some games may exhibit stutter intermittently during gameplay on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
  • Radeon RX Vega series graphics products may experience a system crash or TDR when performing multiple task switches using Alt+Tab.
  • Desktop or In-game corruption may occur intermittently when HDR is enabled.
  • Direct ML Media Filters are currently unavailable in Radeon Software Media gallery for video or image content.
  • Some users may still experience black screen or system hang issues during extended periods of gameplay. AMD will continue to monitor and investigate reports of these issues closely.

I like that AMD includes this in every release as if to say "we both know this will never be fixed but we'll continue pasting this line in the notes to assure you we have not forgotten how shitty your every gaming experience is."

If it really is a hardware issue that cannot be fixed by software - which looks more likely with each release - then they're assholes for continually implying that a driver fix is imminent.

Unless you have a 5700/XT and are sensitive to framerate stutters, you have no idea just how it can sap all joy and enthusiasm from gaming.

After being recently "Burned" by an Asus BIOS update to 3103 (AGESA 1.0.0.6 ComboAM4) for my B450-F ROG STRIX board (possibly lost my new Ryzen R5 3600 CPU), I'm going to hold off on "Beta" AMD drivers. I mean, they're pretty-much perennially in beta anyways, so anything labeled "Beta", is more like an Alpha driver, and who wants to risk messing with that?
