So far working ok here. Better than 24.1.1

Hm interesting, for me it ended up with significantly less FPS and more stutters. Went back to the last version now and it’s better again.

For me 24.1.1 wasn’t so good, had to be on 23.12.1.
Edit: 6800XT

Seems like I need to take back my statement about the worse performance.
It’s the F111 plane that drops my FPS, also in the old driver (the plane had an update this week, might have reduced performance).
Using other planes give me the usual kinda good performance (if that’s a thing you can have in FS2020 :smiley: )

This driver is not showing up if I go trough the steps in the AMD website nor trough the Adrenalin updater.

Click the OP link…

Oh, I already download the driver by the link. I’m just pointing out that it’s not avaliable anywhere else.

The AFMF in 24.2.1 is much worse here than in 24.1.1, it seems the transitions when changing cameras are much slower and the ghosting/tearing on digital screens are horrible, even worse than the first AFMF preview driver they released last year… rolled back to 24.1.1 and it’s pretty smooth again.

6750XT and 5800x3d here and using AMD Clean Install Utility before updating.

Funny, for me it’s better without the AFMF. Plains smotth and fast. Disabling vsync kills it.

There is an option in the amd control panel for preferred installed drivers- WHQL or newest.
Away from pc, so no screenshots, but it is there in options.

All - pls keep in mind these are not WHQL released drivers so basically beta.
