Brief description of the issue:

I recently upgraded my graphic card from an Nvidia GTX1650 to a more powerfull AMD RX6600XT. The global experience is great, except for un point.

Indeed, since then, I’m facing weird/ugly display with vortex / G-effect vapor : grey/brownish render even in the very first sep of rendering.

I already reinstall the whole MSFS2020 from scratch, fully uninstallled/cleaned Adrenalin drivers with no better results. I also tested several Adrenalin version (from 2021 to 2022 versions).

So far, I didn’t find any settings that can fix this.

I had the oppportunity to test a Radeon RX6700XT and was very astonished to get the same ugly result with vaport/vortex renders.

The frustrating point is that as soon as I reinstallthe modest GTX1650, thoses vaport/vortex effects display with no issue.

Is there somthing I’m doing wrong or can I simply not expect better from AMD graphic cards ?
