AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX Can’t Run Ratchet and Clank with Ray Tracing

AMD’s Radeon 7000 GPUs, including the RX 7900 series, can’t run the latest Sony port Ratchet and Clank with ray-tracing. The game straight-up crashes if you enable ray-tracing on a Radeon GPU. Fortunately, Team Red has acknowledged the issue and is working on a patch, but for the time being, Radeon gamers will have to stick to rasterization.

AMD’s graphics driver notes specifically mention Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. As per the change notes, crashes and driver timeouts may be observed while playing the game with ray-tracing and dynamic resolution scaling. Furthermore, AMD is working with the developers to resolve these stability issues when Ray-Tracing is enabled. The driver notes for the AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition are as follows:

Known Issues

  • Performance Metrics Overlay may report N/A for FPS on various games.
  • High idle power has situationally been observed when using select multi-display setups with mixed high-resolution and high refresh rate displays on Radeon™ RX 7000 series GPUs.
  • Intermittent corruption may be observed playing Rocket League™ with Bloom set to Off on some AMD Graphics Products, such as the Radeon™ RX 6900 XT.
  • Intermittent application hang for a few seconds may be observed while playing RuneScape™ on some AMD Graphics Products, such as the Radeon™ RX 5700 XT.
  • Application crash or driver timeout may be observed while playing Ratchet & Clank™: Rift Apart with Ray-Tracing and Dynamic Resolution Scaling enabled on some AMD Graphics Products, such as the Radeon™ RX 7900 XTX.
  • Audio may intermittently become out of sync with video when recording from AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition with AV1 codec.

  • Factory Reset has been temporarily disabled as a precautionary measure while we address isolated installation issues that have been reported during PC upgrades. Users may use AMD Cleanup Utility as a temporary option.
  • AMD is working with the game developers of Ratchet & Clank™: Rift Apart to resolve some stability issues when Ray-Tracing is enabled.
