AMD recently rolled out the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition Driver version 20.20.01.05 for members of Microsoft's Windows Insider Program that work with Microsoft Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). As spotted by a Redditor, the latest software package incorporates a new feature where users fill a simple form to report bugs and crashes.
Prior to the AMD Bug Report Tool, the option for reporting bugs consists of a link that opens an internal web browser that sends Radeon users to AMD's website, which seemed like a primitive method of doing things. As simple as it may sound, the updated bug reporting integration now opens a tool where users can send crash reports directly to AMD.
More importantly, the tool now grabs all your system's specifications automatically, information that you previously had to manually input every time you want to create a report for a bug.
AMD's Radeon driver has often been the recipient of negative feedback. The new feature is certainly a step in the right path. On the flipside, the tool should also help AMD categorize and keep track of all the bugs and user feedback.
Mickey, an AMD representative on Reddit, stated that AMD will share more information on the tool soon.

OK, sorry to inform you that AMD drivers from way before Adrenalin 2020 had in-driver support for reporting problems. Every Catalyst driver had an in-driver button for reporting problems and bugs--and way before that. In fact, there have always been two ways to do it from within AMD drivers. So there's no "finally" to it...;) All this is, is yet another method for doing it. (Pretty noob mistake, here.)Reply
Is there enough internet bandwidth to support this feature?Reply

I never had any issues with my drivers, and I think Nvidia fanbois do most of the complaining, but that was hilarious!
Can it record your issues using video desktop video capture live like a 8k 300hz webcam can do as even ms feedback and google chrome doe not have this ability yet to upload to the network vs just taking snapshots?Reply

I was just about to say that. You beat me to it.
I switched from Radeon 7950 to GTX 1080 and currently use a 3700X in my system. Not a fanboi at all. That was just a joke!joeblowsmynose said:I was just about to say that. You beat me to it.
