AMD has rolled out its new 20.5.1 (20.10.17.01) discharge of the Radeon Adrenalin Edition Graphics driver that implements support for Microsoft’s Windows 10 May 2020 Update and adds a brand new AMD Link Xinput Emulation driver (AMDXE), that will improve compatibility with current and future games.
In addition to that, the present update resolves the Overwatch intermittent crashes or black screens when joining a match, prevents Sniper Elite 4 from minimizing when invoking Radeon Overlay, and ensure Red Dead Redemption 2 launches correctly on Hybrid Graphics configurations.
Moreover, version 20.5.1 fixes incorrect memory clocks reported in performance metrics overlay, improves stability for some Hybrid Graphics system configurations, removes a problem regarding AMD Link, and ensure Destiny 2 doesn’t experience problems when performing a task switch.
However, the release may still encounter specific issues with Radeon VII, Radeon RX Vega, RX 5000, and RX 5700 series graphics products, with Performance Metrics Overlay, Instant Replay, Enhanced Sync, and other minor problems as described within the Release Notes below.
With regards to compatibility, the 20.5.1 release includes one downloadable package directed at Microsoft’s Windows 10 platform, only for 64-bit architecture, as well as one “Auto-Detect and Install” utility suitable for the same OS.
Therefore, save the right bundle, remove any previous version from your computer, run the new file, follow all instructions shown on the screen for an entire upgrade, and don’t forget to perform a reboot (either manually or automatically) to permit all changes to consider effect properly.
Having said that, download AMD Radeon Adrenalin Edition Graphics Driver 20.5.1, apply it to your system, and check back around as frequently as you possibly can to remain up to date using the latest releases.
