The second driver update of October for AMD graphics cards landed today, and it carries support for the upcoming Fallout 76 beta. Other than that, the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.10.2 driver is pretty light, with only a couple of bug fixes.
The multiplayer Fallout game's first ever PC beta is slated to kick off on October 30, but only those who pre-ordered the game will have access. Bethesda also unveiled the system requirements for Fallout 76 today, found here.
While AMD hasn't gone into detail on what sort of improvements does this driver deliver for the title, those planning to jump into the beta should update their graphics drivers before doing so for a smoother experience.
Here are the fixed and known issues of this driver:
- Some Vulkan™ API games may experience a crash on game launch.
- On multi GPU enabled system configurations Assassin's Creed™ Odyssey may experience a random game exit when Adaptive Anti-Aliasing is enabled and the game is restarted.
- Strange Brigade™ may experience an application hang when playing with DirectX®12 API enabled.
- When using Radeon Overlay on system configurations with the latest Windows®10 October 2018 Update some users may experience intermittent instability or game crashes.
- Radeon RX Vega Series graphics products may experience elevated memory clocks during system idle.
With AMD dropping driver support for 32-bit versions of Windows, the 18.10.2 driver is only available for 64-bit systems. The download is available via the links listed on the release notes as well as through the Radeon Settings interface on Windows.
