AMD pushed out the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.3.1 driver today, which carries performance improvements for Capcom's new Devil May Cry 5 - which launches on March 8 -, as well as various bug fixes.
According to AMD's internal testing with an RX Vega 64 graphics card, Devil May Cry 5 will perform up to 4% faster on this driver compared to the previous driver release, 19.2.3. All graphics cards in the GCN family should see improvements with this driver, so it is recommended for AMD users looking to pick the game up.
Don't forget that Devil May Cry 5 is also a part of AMD's current gaming bundle, meaning those who purchase a new graphics card from the red team can choose to get a copy of the game for free.
Here are the fixed and known issues of this release:
- Radeon WattMan settings changes may intermittently not apply on AMD Radeon VII.
- Mouse lag or system slowdown is observed for extended periods of time with two or more displays connected and one display switched off.
- ACER™ KG251Q display may experience a black screen when connected via DisplayPort™ and enabled at 240hz.
- Video playback may become green or experience corruption when dragging the Movies and TV application to an HDR enabled display.
- Rainbow Six Siege™ may experience intermittent corruption or flickering on some game textures during gameplay.
- Mouse cursors may disappear or move out of the boundary of the top of a display on AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics.
- Modifying memory clocks on Radeon VII in Radeon Wattman may intermittently result in memory clocks becoming locked at 800Mhz.
- Changes made in Radeon WattMan settings via Radeon Overlay may sometimes not save or take effect once Radeon Overlay is closed.
- Performance metrics overlay and Radeon WattMan gauges may experience inaccurate fluctuating readings on AMD Radeon VII.
- Some Mobile or Hybrid Graphics system configurations may intermittently experience green flicker when moving the mouse over YouTube™ videos in Chrome web browser.
We can also see that AMD is sticking to its recent strategy of new graphics drivers supporting its APU lineups, both for desktop and mobile.
