AMD finely FIXED the RX6000 series OCL2.dll driver in their new Adrenalin 21.12.1 Optional software driver package 3.dec. 2021

Is the file not replaceable? Meaning can't you take the old one that works and paste it over the top of the new one? Or is that is a task by task thing which would be impossible.


@mikey chances are that it would work but the process is a little messy. You would need to boot your PC in safe mode... completely wipe all current display drivers with a program like DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) then install an old working Radeon Driver software with a working AMDOCL.dll driver, find it in C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore and take ownership of the AMDOCL.dll and make a backup of it... then boot your PC in safe mode again wipe ALL display drivers again preventing Windows update from installing any drivers and install the newest Radeon Driver software pack reboot in Safe mode and overwrite the AMDOCL.dll with your backup.... (this could work)

Ohhh and then you would need to repeat the boot in safe mode and overwriting the AMDOCL.dll every time you update your GPU drivers.....

Posted on AMDs forum in my thread:
Re: Error on RX6000 series cards AMDOCL.ddl drivers newer than 3240.6 from Radeon Software 21.5.2
The error still persists on the new drivers coming along with the new Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.10.3. Released 25. Oktober 2021.
My Daughters older and smaller NVidia GTX1650 run all PrimeGrid tasks with NO issues! And the few tasks my RX6700XT can actually run. Her small GTX1650 run only a few seconds slower than my super expensive AMD RX6700XT!!!
AMD have neglected keeping their AMDOCL.dll drivers tuned and in working condition for their super expensive RX6000 series GPUs. It is embarrassing that my daughter can buy a NVidia GPU to 1/10 of the price of mine and can run all the tasks and to close to the same performance?
Just have a look at PrimeGrid fastest GPU list... https://www.primegrid.com/gpu_list.php
AND GPUGRID on Boinc don't even bother making their tasks compatible with AMD GPUs because AMD neglect keeping AMDOCL.dll up to date and tuned.


It is this kind of things that makes it really difficult to keep supporting AMD and is making me regret spending so many money on a AMD RX6700RX
(Does anybody want to buy a slightly used Sapphire Radeon RX6700XT +Nitro so i can go back to NVidia)?


I do not think anybody ADMINs there is bothered with reading any problems going on in their forum

I submitted yet another bugreport to AMD and I am going to write it on their forum too

No It is you (AMD) that need to fix this problem on the next RX6000 series drivers.. We just posted the problem to make you aware of that there is a problem on the RX6000 series GPU drivers in Windows 10 on the AMDOCL.dll drivers newer than the ones that come along after the Radeon software 21.5.2. That one driver and older worked well. (See the post)
The reply you say I received is another member confirming my findings (read the post)

I also replied to your mail in hope you will see it this time :)

Thanks in advance. We are looking forward to an updated (working driver) Dennis The Menace

(send to AMD)

@Dennis Menace That is impressive! For around 115W, your temperature delta is 33 degrees (78-45), but my delta is 56 degrees (88-32). I think it's partly because of air vs. water cooling, and partly because of the power density? My CPU consumes 12-13W per core under manual overclocking. (Another CPU, 3300X, can easily do 14W per core.) In this situation my margin is too thin to run 16 vs. 8 PPS-MEGA tasks (or SGS.)


SeanHsu I don't think it have anything to do with water cooling vs. Air cooling as long as your cooler have the power to cool enough wattage.

After haven gone through 2 HUGE air coolers and a Corsair H100i pro AIO and then building a huge custom water loop with only minimal improvement. I was made aware through Jays Youtube channel
https://www.youtube.com/c/Jayztwocents
That Ryzen CPUs have a little curvature on the top surface, which often makes it impossible to make full contact with a flat cooler base and makes the heat absorption less effective to the cooler and NO amount of cooling paste can make up for this curvature (when i touched the heatpipes on my Air coolers as close to the CPU as i could get while it was running. The heatpipes was not HOT, on my old CPU i burned my fingers when i touched the heatpipes).

Now there is two things one can do about it.. One is to get a cooler where the contact surface follows this curvature (as mentioned earlier I know that EK waterblocks make a CPU waterblock which should follow this curvature)
OR if you have chest hair and are brave enough you can do as Jay recoments on his youtube channel and as i did with my CPU... Grind the top surface of your CPU, just enough to be able to see that the sandpaper made full contact with the whole surface and thereby be able to make full contact between your CPU and your cooler (option two is at your own risk). In his video Jay made a ~20 degree temperature improvement just by grinding his CPU flat so the cooler could make better contact....

You also seem to run tasks on SMT, or Simultaneous Multithreading, which will increase power usage with little gain in the throughput. On SMT, my CPU consumes 128 watts instead of 114 watts of power, so you'll like to avoid it.
I can see that your PPS-MEGA tasks turn around on average in 2500 seconds with -t2, and CPU times are 4800 seconds, which are twice as long as mine. You have a Ryzen 3900X CPU, which is the same generation as my 3700X, and they should perform alike for single cores.

This is one of your results, and
https://www.primegrid.com/result.php?resultid=1263165101
This is mine, which takes 2500 seconds on one core only.


@SeanHsu sure there is only little gain in running SMT if you look at the single task output. But did you take in to account that we on our Ryzen 9 3900X can hyperthreaded 24 tasks simultaneously and every single task with that small gain. All in all that add up to quite a lot (if you can keep your CPU cool enough).

My Computer is crunching 24/7 and the CPU is running SMT around 114W to 115W with Auto PBO and i never saw a CPU Package temperature over 78 deg. C. running 100% under the 45 deg. C. heat wave we had here in southern Greece this summer. But as i mentioned i also have a custom water loop with two radiators.
So it is durable.

I submitted a bug report from my Radeon software to AMD.

@SeanHsu and everybody else with a rx6000 series GPU experiencing the same bug.
Please do the same, so we can get as many bugreports to AMD about this issue.

I'm also going to open a thread on AMD forum about this bug.

@SeanHsu Stupid question from my side.... Offcause you have a Linux OS installed too :p

@SeanHsu you installed a Linux driver and it works with your rx6600xt? Woooow

If I'm to attempt this then I'm afraid that you will need to hold my hand and walk me trough it step by step please
