Guess what?

The Red team evaluated all customer concerns/feedback. In response, they provided a unified driver update for the AMD platform in the market, whereby delivering on the requests of our end-user community. The most important part of this update is that it was also optimized for the newly-released Resident Evil 3 Remake.

While the update offers further optimizations for Capcom’s latest Resident Evil installment, this new driver update also comes with several fixes for reported issues. For example, black screen bug within Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch during gameplay for long periods on certain RX Vega GPUs.

Furthermore, AMD Radeon Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.4.1 focuses on an issue that was the reason for the failure of HDR in enabling games and applications connecting and using the Vulkan API.

As it’s written in the release notes, the new driver also solves an issue that didn’t allow our favorite, Doom Eternal to launch when engaging some hybrid graphics interface settings properly.

Shown below are the crucial parts of the release notes for the new 20.4.1:
