An AMD driver bug plummets Time Spy scores!


Ouch, ouch, ouch, decidedly, whether it is NVIDIA or AMD, the driver problems follow one another. After the NVIDIA driver generating a high CPU usage after quitting a game, we now move to AMD. Apparently, the RADEON driver is the cause of a drastic drop in 3DMark Time Spy scores.

Time Spy: beware of bad scores with the latest AMD driver!

Time Spy mauvais scoreApparently, a user named Osvaldo Doederlein has a score problem with his RX 7900 XTX on 3D Mark Time Spy, the famous DirectX 12 test software. As you can see, with the latest AMD driver, the score is literally plummeting. While it was getting 29,253 pts in graphics part, the latter falls to 12,934 pts with the new driver.

However, he is not the only one in this case since the UL Benchmark database reports that 3% of users are affected. Moreover, this also shows us that the problem remains quite rare as well.

On their side, UL Benchmark tried to do some research to see where it could come from, but without success. A representative of the company indicated that he could not reproduce the bug in question unlike AMD. Indeed, the reds are also on the spot and they, visibly, manage to reproduce it. Moreover, it would seem that it comes from a problem related to the driver.

In the meantime, there is no miracle solution, either you keep your current installation and let it go, or you install an older version of the AMD driver to correct the problem. In any case, we imagine that AMD will release a fix in its next driver version.
