Radeon's Software Adrenalin 20.11.2 driver for the RX 6800 series and WoW Shadowlands 

AMD has just launched its Radeon Software 20.11.2 driver for Windows PCs, offering PC gamers full driver support for the company's new Radeon RX 6800 series of graphics cards alongside driver optimisations for World of Warcraft Shadowlands. 

Radeon Software 20.11.2 also features several new driver fixes, implementing several setup or game-specific issues. In addition to this, AMD has also released an extensive list of known issues which the company are working on. 

Note that AMD's Radeon RX 6800 series GPUs are currently facing issues with some ray tracing enabled titles, which makes sense given the fact that these games were developed when Nvidia was the only manufacturer of DXR compatible hardware. These early issues will be addressed with future Radeon Software releases, and future DXR titles are to be developed with both AMD and Nvidia hardware in mind. 
  

Support For

- Radeon RX 6800 Series
- World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Added Vulkan Support

- VK_KHR_fragment_shading_rate

- This extension provides the ability to change the shading rate per fragment. This extension allows for multiple pixels to be shaded via a single fragment shader invocation as opposed to the normal rate of one invocation per pixel.

Fixed Issues

- Enabling Record Desktop and Instant Replay may cause hitching or stutter during fullscreen video playback on some system configurations.
- Custom fan settings may not retain after waking from sleep on Radeon RX 500 series graphics products.
- Graphical glitching may occur on Radeon RX 500 series graphics products when at idle or at desktop with multiple high refresh rate Radeon FreeSync displays connected.
- Disabling performance metrics overlay while in game can sometimes cause frame freeze or stuttering.
- Lower than expected performance may be experienced on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products in Xuan-Yuan Sword VII™.
- Mouse corruption may be experienced when changing graphics options to Vulkan® API in Serious Sam 4™.
- Corruption may be visible on some surfaces in Far Cry™ Primal on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.

Known Issues

- Brightness flickering may intermittently occur in some games when Radeon FreeSync is enabled, and the game is set to use borderless fullscreen.
- Metro Exodus™, Shadow of the Tomb Raider™, Battlefield™ V, Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War may experience intermittent application crashes with DirectX® Raytracing enabled.
- Anisotropic Filtering in Radeon Software graphics settings is not taking effect in DirexctX®9 applications on RDNA graphics products.
- Crysis™ Remastered may experience corruption on character models on Radeon RX 6800 Series graphics products.
- World of Warcraft: Shadowlands may fail to launch when DirectX®12 API is selected on Windows®7 system configurations.
- Some games may experience stuttering when set to borderless fullscreen and an extended display is connected running the Netflix™ windows store application on RDNA graphics products.
- Radeon recording and streaming features may fail to enable on AMD Radeon HD 7800 series graphics products.
- Screen space reflections may appear with flickering corruption in Battlefield™ V on RDNA graphics products.
- Modifying the HDMI Scaling slider may cause FPS to become locked to 30.
- Performance Metrics Overlay and the Performance Tuning tab incorrectly report higher than expected idle clock speeds on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products. Performance and power consumption are not impacted by this incorrect reporting.
- Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.

Nvidia had many driver issues at launch as well. Kinda happens whenever a new card launches. Sometimes worse than others.Quote

Think you forgot the clock spiking the 3xxx series cards were doing and crashing before Nvidia fixed it with a driver. Every gen has a rough driver launch.

2xxx had models with fan curves giving grief. Just give it a short time and it will be fine.Quote

TBH that wasn't really a driver issue. It was a hardware issue, and was patched by the driver. The cards were clocking too high. Probably for reviews.

These issues AMD describe are quite blatantly driver issues. Mind you, I guess it doesn't matter if you can't get the cards any way. Maybe they are saving people aggro with this paper launch lol.Quote
