AMD performance with Adrenalin drivers newer than 20.4.2.

Hi!

Just curious on what exactly happened with newer AMD Adrenalin driver performance on eGPUs?

I noticed that with anything newer than than 20.4.2 my AMD cards take a big hit in performance.

For example, Superposition medium preset goes down from 11K to around 6K on RX 5700.

See, for example, this build as well - https://egpu.io/forums/builds/2019-15-lenovo-x1-extreme-9th6ch-dgpu-rx-5700-xt-32gbps-tb3-akitio-node-win10-ubuntu-20-10-wayland/#post-93573

This seem to be just pure Adrenalin driver issue (maybe).

Has anyone managed to get decent performance out of newer driver versions?

I am asking because if this ‘trend’ continues we would be left with an old(er) driver only for our precious cards.

Just to explore it a bit further:

Does this performance issue occur only on RX 5000 / 6000 cards?

Does the performance issue maybe occur on GPU’s without eGPU enclosure as well (PC’s with GPU plugged to the internal slot)?

Maybe the issue impacts some programs only, like Superposition?
