After a long break, AMD has released a new graphics driver, Adrenalin 23.7.1 WHQL (driver version 23.10.01.45).
The new driver supports additional Vulkan extensions and introduces numerous fixes, although some known issues remain unresolved.
The issues fixed in this release are performance issues and occasional stuttering in some games or VR applications running on Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs.
The driver update also resolved an application crash or driver timeout that users could experience when playing AV1 video content using DaVinci Resolve Studio.
Additionally, AMD has implemented improvements to reduce high standby power consumption when using certain 4k@144Hz FreeSync compatible displays or multi-monitor display setups, such as 4k@144HZ displays or 4k@120Hz + 1440p@60Hz, on Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs.
What’s Fixed and Improved in AMD Driver 23.7.1 for Windows
Other fixes include intermittent corruption issues when playing WWE 2K23 on specific AMD graphics products, like the Radeon RX 7900 XTX. Similar corruption issues have been reported when playing Nioh 2 on products such as the Radeon RX 6800 XT, especially after switching windows.
However, the Adrenalin 23.7.1 WHQL release does not resolve all existing issues. For example, apps may crash when playing RuneScape on some AMD products like the RX 5700 XT. Additionally, corruption can still be observed around certain player models when playing Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix+ on AMD graphics products like the Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Other issues include stuttering when playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II with Radeon Anti-Lag enabled. AMD recommends that users experiencing this issue disable Anti-Lag in per-game settings as a temporary solution.
Finally, there are ongoing reports of performance metrics overlay showing N/A for FPS on various games, display signal lost after window switching on some Adaptive-Sync enabled displays such as the Radeon RX 7900 XTX , and higher than expected GPU memory usage. when using specific recording and streaming settings, such as instant replay.
The Adrenalin 23.7.1 WHQL release demonstrates AMD’s continued commitment to fixing issues and improving user performance.
