AMD Radeon 20.1.2 driver has support for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and Vulkan 1.2

Less than a week following the previous AMD graphics driver, the company has pushed out another release. This time it's the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.1.2 optional driver, coming with support for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as well as the Vulkan 1.2 major update.

The new Bandai Namco-published Dragon Ball RPG is releasing on January 17, and AMD is recommending this driver for anyone with Radeon graphics looking to pick the game up. The company didn't share any specifics as to what improvements it will imbue though.

On the Vulkan side, this driver provides support for the latest 1.2 specification of the low-level graphics API that released only hours ago. Head over here to get more information about this new Vulkan version.

Unlike the most recent couple of drivers from the company, this new release isn't that heavy on fixed issues. Here are the two problems AMD has managed to squash since last week:

  • Some UE4 based titles such as KovaaK 2.0: The Meta™, Tetris Effect™ and Snooker 19™ may fail to launch with Adrenalin 2020 edition software.
  • Some single display Radeon RX 5700 series graphics product system configurations may experience intermittent reboots when the system is left idle on desktop.

Meanwhile, the known issues list is as follows:

  • Radeon Anti-Lag enable and disable beep notifications may be played in error when individually pressing keys assigned to the hotkey.
  • The Radeon Software Overlay hotkey notification may sometimes be displayed during video playback in web browsers or launching some video player applications.
  • Integer Scaling option is not showing up or available on some Windows®7 system configurations.
  • Factory Reset install may keep previously configured Radeon Software game profiles. This can cause mismatch between global graphics settings and per profile settings.
  • Text overflow in some UI boxes or toast messages may be experienced in some language localizations.
  • Radeon Software may open with an inconsistent size or may not keep its previously set size when opened.
  • Some Vulkan® gaming applications may crash when performing a task switch with Radeon Image Sharpening enabled.
  • Integer Scaling may cause some video content to show flicker when the display resolution is set to less than native resolution.
  • Some Radeon RX 5700 series graphics users may intermittently experience a black screen while gaming or on desktop. A potential temporary workaround is disabling hardware acceleration in applications running in the background such as web browsers or Discord.
  • A limited number of games such as Nioh™, Dead or Alive 6™, Dragon Quest Builders 2™ and Atelier Ryza™ may crash or fail to launch.

Those looking to upgrade their existing driver to the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.1.2 release may use the Radeon Software app on Windows. Separate download links for the driver can be found on its official release notes page.

Update: Corrected the release notes link.
