AMD's latest driver drop for its Radeon graphics cards brings in support for some upcoming games. The Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.1.2 driver is recommended to those who are looking to pick up the Resident Evil 2 remake, Anthem or the recently delayed Tropico 6.
The company hasn't gone into detail on what kind of support has Resident Evil 2 and Tropico 6 have received with this update. But considering the Capcom horror title is being given for free with Radeon graphics cards these days, we can expect the optimization levels to be high on the red team's side when the game launches on January 25.
Meanwhile, the Anthem optimizations are for the game's early access crowd, who will be able to experience the game from January 25 by pre-ordering or subscribing to Origin Access. AMD says the BioWare title performs 7% faster while using this driver on RX 580 graphics cards over the previous driver release.
Note that these performance bumps usually apply to the entire GCN-lineup of the company, even though only a single product is mentioned.
There are some fixed and known issues in this driver as well, which are as follows:
- Some displays may experience a black screen on reboot until the display is power cycled.
- A toast message may intermittently popup incorrectly suggesting that a new driver upgrade is available.
- Rocket League™ may experience flickering or erratic refresh rates when Radeon FreeSync is enabled.
