Title: Windows Update Causes Issues for AMD Gamers
Date: [Insert Date]
In a recent development, AMD gamers have taken to social media platforms to express their dissatisfaction with Windows’ latest operating system update, released on September 26. While the update introduced several new features, such as Windows Copilot and an updated File Explorer, users have reported encountering performance issues, problems with the File Explorer, and peculiar Copilot conversations. This surge in complaints has raised concerns among the gaming community, specifically those using AMD’s Adrenaline software.
The update, which aimed to enhance user experience and streamline functionality, seems to have clashed with the compatibility of AMD’s Adrenaline software. This mismatch has resulted in the resetting of hardware settings made in Adrenaline 23.9.3 after every boot. Consequently, AMD gamers find themselves in a frustrating cycle of reconfiguring their settings every time they turn on their computers. Additionally, users have reported instances where PCs crash at the GPU settings screen, posing a significant risk to system stability.
Interestingly, Microsoft claims to be unaware of any issues regarding the September 26 update. However, uninstalling the update appears to solve the problem for those using AMD Adrenaline. Unfortunately, this solution comes with its own risks, as important fixes may be removed from the system along with the update uninstallation.
For those unwilling to uninstall the update entirely, some users have found success by turning off Windows Copilot. To accomplish this, third-party applications such as ViVe need to be utilized. While this provides temporary respite, it does not fully address the compatibility issue between Windows and AMD’s Adrenaline software.
The recent Windows update, intended to enhance the operating system’s performance, has inadvertently caused problems for AMD gamers. With issues ranging from performance challenges and glitches in the File Explorer to peculiar Copilot conversations, it is clear that compatibility between Windows and AMD’s Adrenaline software needs further attention. Until a reliable fix is implemented, users must decide whether to remove the update at the risk of losing important fixes or rely on temporary workarounds. AMD gamers await Microsoft’s response and a comprehensive solution to resolve these ongoing compatibility issues.
