@simooa, Your RX 5700 XT can use the red drivers. I run 20.4.2 on all setups both Windows machines and Boot Camp (different version including latest 202H). The only exception is with Big Navi cards that require newer Radeon driver versions.

@simooa, on my 5700xt build, I had sloppy performance and a warning before starting squadrons... but I still had the best stability using April Red drivers for bootcamp.  I tried updating drivers (a lot of futzing around to get smoother performance out of squadrons but the red April drivers really were the best all around)...

thank you for your well explained build. After some self originated trouble (it took me "only" one extend evening) it worked for me. I like especially that the set-up is the most current updated one (macOS Big Sur 11.2.2 and Win 20H2 19042.844 and the BootCamp drivers - Blue Edition, 21.2.1.). Without your build I could not make it. 

Thank you again.



BTW my set-up is:
