There is a problem with the latest AMD Radeon graphics card driver

Recently, AMD Software Adrenalin Edition 23.3.1 driver was released, which supports “Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty” and provides ray tracing support for “Halo Infinite,” as well as fixing some issues.

Google software engineer Osvaldo Doederlein has discovered that the Radeon RX 7900 XTX experiences a decrease in performance when using AMD’s latest graphics card driver. It is understood that this problem can cause a significant drop in the scores of the latest version of 3DMark Time Spy benchmark tests, with a loss of almost half the points.

UL Solutions developers have confirmed the existence of this issue and cited examples, indicating that approximately 3% of users may be affected. The actual number may be even higher, as some users may not notice or report the problem. There are reports that AMD’s development team has reproduced this issue internally and is conducting further research. It appears to be an issue with the Radeon graphics card driver itself, but it has not yet been added to the “known issues” list in the driver, and users will need to wait for AMD to provide a corresponding solution.

Recently, both AMD and Nvidia have encountered issues with their graphics card drivers. In addition to this issue, AMD’s AMD Software Adrenalin Edition 23.2.1 driver, released last month, had a bug that caused damage to the Windows operating system when resetting to factory settings. Similarly, last month, Nvidia’s GeForce Game Ready 531.18 WHQL driver had a bug that caused abnormally high CPU usage, which Nvidia subsequently fixed.
