Latest AMD Driver Update Designed To Fix A Variety Of Bugs

AMD has rolled out another update to its GPU driver. This time, it’s the 19.4.1 version of the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition. But this should not be a cause for concern because it’s a minor patch.

What it does is to resolve the overclocking of the Wattman utility. The good thing about this new AMD driver update is that it also fixes other bugs.

Owners of Radeon RX Vega graphics cards have been experiencing problems related to the auto overclocking control within Radeon Wattman. There are instances when the utility does not increase the engine clocks beyond the Vega GPUs’ default levels. The latest driver update is designed to solve these issues.

Moreover, the latest AMD driver update resolves an anomaly in the Radeon VII and Vega graphics cards. The glitch occurs when the cards are connected to three displays or more simultaneously. If you have this kind of set-up and experience instability or recurrent hangs, this is the driver you need.

Patch 19.4.1 also resolves other GPU-related issues which include the following:

  • Patches 8.1.5 or higher for World of Warcraft may intermittently crash or hang when upon the enabling of MSAA.
  • Failure of vari-bright changes to apply among certain AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors equipped with system configurations for Radeon Vega Graphics.
  • Tendency of mouse cursors to vanish or move away from the boundary of the topmost display. This is for AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors outfitted with Radeon Vega Graphics.
  • Intermittent corruption of graphics may occur when playing World of Tanks.™ This happens when game settings of Radeon RX Vega graphics products are set to a minimum.

There are other concerns the Radeon Team are trying to address through its AMD driver update, according to Neowin.

  • Flicker screen may be experienced on multi-display setups with MD Radeon VII when running applications.
  • Intermittent flicker may occur during overlay of performance metrics, particularly when replaying protected content with the feature turned on.
  • Display flicker may happen when accessing the application for Netflix™ Windows® Store. This may occur during video playback on certain displays where the HDR is enabled.
  • Readings on AMD Radeon VII may experience inaccurate fluctuation on Radeon WattMan gauges and performance metrics overlay.
