Like with the last update, AMD is yet again focusing on new 7000 Series GPUs, meaning that owners of RX 6000 Series, or older, cards shouldn’t bother downloading since they simply won’t work.
With version 23.1.1, AMD has fixed crashes occurring while playing Valheim or Witcher 3 alongside driver timeouts when using the Auto OC feature. The most important fix is probably for performance degradation after reverting to default settings, which could go unnoticed by many users who could simply think their hardware is not as good as advertised.
On the other hand, the brand still didn’t completely iron out the high power consumption bugs, which is annoying for those who leave their machines on 24/7.
The full list of changes can be found below:
- Intermittent driver timeout may occur when applying Auto Overclock performance tuning.
- While playing Valheim an app crash or driver timeout may occur using Vulkan API.
- While playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, an intermittent app crash or driver timeout may occur when Ray Tracing settings are enabled.
- Minor performance degradation may be observed after applying a factory reset of settings.
- High idle power has situationally been observed when using select high resolution and high refresh rate displays.
- Intermittent app crashes or driver timeout may occur when using Radeon Super Resolution with some extended display configurations.
- Video stuttering or performance drop may be observed during gameplay plus video playback with some extended display configurations.
- Stuttering may be observed in UNCHARTED 4: A Thief’s End during the opening game sequence.
- Some virtual reality games or apps may experience lower than expected performance.
