Just got stung by this bloody driver update as well.

Windows 10 20H2 running on a x570 Aorus Pro Wifi mainboard with a Ryzen 5 3600x.


I've had the Ryzen 5 3600x for several months now and it's a beast. Nice overclock and good Temps even when under heavy loads. First Amd processor I've purchased and will definitely buy Amd again for my next upgrade.
