It hasn't been long, only a week in fact, since AMD released its last graphics driver, and already there's a new one waiting in the installation lineup. The new Radeon Software Adrenalin 22.1.2 release isn't big on features, only coming with support for a single game, but it is an important one for anyone picking up AMD's new lower-end RX 6000 series cards.
The game receiving official support is Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction, Ubisoft's new cooperative shooter releasing on January 20. AMD hasn't gone into detail on what sort of game improvements players can expect from installing this driver, but it is a recommended install.
Meanwhile, the RX 6500 XT, RX 6400, as well as the RX 6500M and RX 6300M mobile GPUs are getting official support in this driver.
There's only a single bug fix included in this release, one related to Borderlands 3:
- While playing Borderlands 3™ using DirectX® 12 with Radeon™ Boost enabled, longer than expected load times may be observed on some AMD Graphics Products such as Radeon® RX 6800 XT Graphics.
The known issues are these:
- Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.
- Radeon performance metrics and logging features may intermittently report extremely high and incorrect memory clock values.
AMD is also said to be working on a much more feature-packed driver internally which will bring FidelityFX Super Resolution upscaling tech as a part of the driver software suite itself, among other major changes.
Today's Radeon Software Adrenalin 22.1.2 driver is available for Windows 10 and 11, and it can be installed from the Radeon Settings app in the Optional section. A standalone download link is available on the official release notes page here.
