  • VK_KHR_video_decode_h264
  • VK_KHR_video_decode_h265
  • VK_KHR_video_decode_queue
  • VK_KHR_video_queue
  • VK_EXT_device_address_binding_report
  • VK_VALVE_mutable_descriptor_type
  • VK_EXT_mutable_descriptor_type
  • VK_EXT_dynamic_rendering_unused_attachments

AMD Adrenalin driver 23.7.1 fixed issues

  • Certain virtual reality games or applications may encounter suboptimal performance or occasional stuttering on Radeon RX 7000-series GPUs.
  • Application crash or driver timeout may be observed during playback of AV1 video content using DaVinci Resolve Studio.
  • Improvements to high idle power when running 4K/144Hz FreeSync enabled displays, or multimonitor display configurations (such as 4K/144Hz or 4K/120Hz + 1440p/60Hz display) using Radeon RX 7000-series GPUs.
  • Intermittent corruption may be observed playing WWE 2K23 on some AMD Graphics Products, such as the Radeon RX 7900 XTX.
  • Intermittent corruption may be observed after switching windows while playing Nioh 2 on some AMD Graphics Products, such as the Radeon RX 6800 XT.

  • Application crashes may be intermittently observed while playing RuneScape on some AMD Graphics Products, such as the Radeon RX 5700 XT.
  • Intermittent corruption may be observed around some player models while playing Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix+ on some AMD Graphics Products, such as the Radeon RX 6900 XT.
  • Stuttering may be observed while playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II with Radeon Anti-Lag enabled. As a temporary solution, users encountering this are recommended to disable the Anti-Lag in the per-game settings.
  • Performance Metrics Overlay may report N/A for FPS on various games.
  • Display signal may be lost after switching windows on certain Adaptive-Sync enable displays on some AMD Graphics Products, such as the Radeon RX 7900 XTX.
  • Higher than expected GPU memory utilization when using certain Record and Stream settings such as Instant Replay.

Those are all the big changes with the latest AMD Radeon GPU driver update, and while there’s nothing massive here, it’s good to see AMD keeping its software regularly maintained.

One of our favorite AMD GPUs at the moment is the AMD Radeon RX 7600, which only costs $269 and is our current budget GPU of choice on our guide to the best graphics card.
