AMD finally fixes Enhanced Sync black screen issue with latest 22.9.1 driver

AMD has released the latest graphics driver beta for Windows with Adrenalin 22.9.1. The new release finally fixes an old Radeon bug that caused black screen issues in games and videos when using the Enhanced Sync option. This feature is meant to provide the best of both worlds between FreeSync and V-Sync. It is said to minimize screen tearing, as FreeSync does, while also reducing the latency caused by traditional v-sync.

The new driver also adds support for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II open beta. The full list of changes is below:


  • Support for Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® II Open Beta.

Issues fixed

  • Enhanced Sync may result in an intermittent black screen during gameplay and video playback using Enhanced Displays and Enhanced Sync toggle.

Known Issues

  • Radeon™ Super Resolution may not work after changing resolution or HDR settings in games such as Nioh™ 2.
  • Oculus Control Panel menus and rendered controllers may bounce/stagger on Oculus Quest 2 with certain AMD graphics products such as Radeon™ RX 6800 XT Graphics.
  • GPU usage may get stuck at 100% in Radeon performance readings after closing games on some AMD graphics products such as the Radeon™ 570.
  • When previewing the timeline in VEGAS Pro™, some colors may appear inverted.
  • Some AMD graphics products, such as the Radeon™ RX 6700 XT, may experience a brief display stutter when switching between video and game windows.
  • When Vertical Refresh Sync is set to Always Disabled, system hangs or driver timeouts may occur during video playback using Radeon™ RX 6000 series GPUs.
  • Users may experience dropped frames when playing video using hardware acceleration in browsers on Radeon™ RX 6000 Series GPUs.

Important Notes

  • AMD Software Capture and Stream features, as well as Overlay support for clone mode and Eyefinity display configurations, will be announced at a later date.
  • OpenGL applications that support 10-bit formats are no longer supported with HDR display capabilities. Enabling 10-bit pixel format in advanced graphics settings is only recommended for using 10-bit OpenGL applications and is not required to enable 10-bit color display capabilities.
  • AMD is working with the developers of Call of Duty®: Warzone™ to resolve an issue that may cause users to experience freezes on the Caldera map.

The driver is compatible with all Radeon RX 400 series desktop products and later, as well as Ryzen and Athlon Vega based APUs. Radeon 600 and RX 5000M series and above are supported on mobile devices. To download the 22.9.1 driver, go to the official AMD website .
