AMD has just released their latest Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.1.4 beta drivers, a new set of drivers that add support for Warcraft III: Reforged, and more.


The new AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.1.4 beta drivers offer 11% more performance in Warcraft III: Reforged on the High preset powered by a Radeon RX 5700 XT, fix a bunch of issues with the Vulkan-based version of Red Dead Redemption 2, and issues with Grand Theft Auto 5 when using Radeon Overlay while in a game, or after switching tasks while in-game.

AMD is aware of a bunch of issues in the new drivers that should be fixed with subsequent driver releases, too. You can download the new AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.1.4 beta drivers right here.

Bug fixes in the new driver:

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 may experience square or blocky textures on some terrain during gameplay when using Vulkan API.
  • Some Vulkan API games may experience a crash or application hang when performing a task switch while Radeon Image Sharpening is enabled.
  • Text overflow is observed in toast messages for some languages.
  • Radeon ReLive may fail to switch recording to desktop when Radeon Software is open.
  • Grand Theft Auto 5 may experience a system hang or black screen at launch, when opening Radeon Overlay while in game, or after performing a task switch while in game.
  • Audio may intermittently be missing from Radeon ReLive recordings near the end of recorded clips.
  • Integer Scaling option is not showing up or available on some Windows 7 system configurations.

Known issues:

  • A loss of display with working audio may be experienced on a limited number of displays when performing a mode change on Radeon RX 5000 series graphics products.
  • A system crash or hang may occur when running the Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers benchmark.
  • Integer Scaling may cause some video content to show flicker when the display resolution is set to less than native resolution.
  • Multiple games may have very dark or very bright graphics in game when HDR is enabled in Windows.
  • Radeon Anti-Lag enable and disable beep notifications may be played in error when individually pressing keys assigned to the hotkey.
  • The Radeon Software Overlay hotkey notification may sometimes be displayed during video playback in web browsers or launching some video player applications.
  • Radeon Software may open with an inconsistent size or may not keep its previously set size when opened.
  • Some Radeon RX 5700 series graphics users may intermittently experience a black screen while gaming or on desktop. A potential temporary workaround is disabling hardware acceleration in applications running in the background such as web browsers or Discord.
