AMD is probably still working on its usual end-of-the-year driver overhaul, but before that, the red team today released the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.12.1 driver. There aren't any game optimizations attached - none that AMD specified anyway - but it does carry support for the new Radeon RX 5300M GPU for mobile products.
In addition, AMD has managed to track down and fix an annoying bug that's been plaguing some RX 5700 series GPUs, where playing in 1080p resolution and low settings can make games stutter. See below for the two fixed issues in this release and the list of known issues that the company is still hammering away at:
- Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products may experience stutter in some games at 1080p and low game settings.
- Some Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products may experience an intermittent crash to desktop when playing The Outer Worlds™.
- Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products may intermittently experience loss of display or video signal during gameplay.
- Performance Metrics Overlay may cause stutter or screen flashing on some applications.
- Toggling HDR may cause system instability during gaming when Radeon ReLive is enabled.
- AMD Radeon VII may experience elevated memory clocks at idle or on desktop.
- Performance Metrics Overlay may report incorrect VRAM utilization.
- Invoking Radeon Overlay may cause games to lose focus or become minimized when HDR is enabled within Windows®.
The Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.12.1 is available as an upgrade via the Radeon Settings app on Windows. It can also be downloaded separately using the download links available on the driver's official release notes page.
