AMD Radeon 18.3.3 driver adds support for Sea of Thieves and A Way Out

For the third time this month, AMD has put out a new driver, this one being the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.3.3. The driver brings along support for two new games, the Rare-developed pirate adventure game, Sea of Thieves, which launched today, as well as the upcoming co-op adventure title from Hazelight Studios, A Way Out, which releases on March 23.

AMD does not specify what sort of improvements does this driver bring to the two games, but those picking up either of the titles may want to update. The driver team brought some major Sea of Thieves performance boosts in last month's Radeon 18.2.3 driver as well.

Support for Khronos group's newly released Vulkan 1.1 API is also included with the driver. Here are the fixed issues in this update:

  • Forza® Motorsport 7 may experience intermittent stutter during gameplay.
  • Some Radeon ReLive recorded clips may experience corruption or audio distortion when played back.
  • Final Fantasy® XV may experience flickering or disappearing objects during some gameplay in multi GPU enabled system configurations.
  • Star Wars® Battlefront™ 2 may experience a system hang on the initial splash screen in multi GPU enabled system configurations.

And here are the known issues:

  • A random system hang may be experienced after extended periods of use on system configurations using 12 GPU's for compute workloads.
  • Destiny 2™ may experience an application hang in the mission "Heist" on some Radeon GCN1.0 products.
  • Destiny 2™ may experience long load times when the application has been open for extended periods of time.
  • Radeon Overlay may intermittently fail to enable when toggled in some games.
  • FFmpeg application may experience corrupted output for H264 video streams.
  • Resizing Radeon Settings may cause the window to intermittently stutter.

The Radeon Software Adrenaline Edition 18.3.3 driver can now be downloaded through the Radeon Settings interface or via the links listed in the official release notes.
