AMD Radeon 19.10.1 driver delivers RX 5500 series and GRID support

Earlier today, AMD announced its upcoming RX 5500 series graphics cards, arriving as a budget orientated line built on its new 7nm RDNA architecture. While the company hasn't announced a solid release date for the products yet, its driver team today unleashed the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.10.1 suite, bringing official support for them.

This involves adding support for both the currently announced RX 5500 desktop and the RX 5500M mobile GPUs.

Also being supported is the upcoming release of GRID, the reboot of the popular racing series. Codemasters is planning to launch the game on October 11, and this driver is recommended to those using Radeon cards who are planning on picking it up. AMD didn't go into detail on what sort of improvements does this release deliver for the game, however.

As usual, AMD has bundled a bunch of fixes with this driver release as well, alongside a list of known issues it is currently working on resolving:
