Epic Games today launched Unreal Engine 5.0, their latest generation game engine announced two years ago. It is now available for download, and mainstream GPU providers are here to offer their drivers with Unreal Engine 5.0 support. If your computer uses a supported AMD graphics card, you can download AMD Software 22.4.1 optimized for Unreal Engine 5.0 and CitySample.

Unreal Engine 5.0 will offer game developers numerous enhancements, better performance, and new tools. For example, the engine comes with Lumen, a new tool for creating realistic lighting, and Nanite, a utility for making complex objects with vast amounts of details.

The latest game engine from Epic Games is big and exciting news for game developers. But if you are on the consuming side of the gaming industry, your computer with a Radeon GPU will benefit from several bug fixes AMD included in release 22.4.1. Here are the changes in AMD's latest graphics driver:

Support for:

  • Unreal Engine 5.0 and CitySample.

Fixed Issues:

  • Visual artifacts in Horizon Zero Dawn may be observed during gameplay on some AMD Graphics products such as Radeon RX 6800 XT.
  • Cursor may be misaligned in some titles such as Horizon Zero Dawn and resolution changes while using Radeon Super Resolution.
  • Performance Metrics Overlay may be misaligned after snapping the window to either side of the desktop.

AMD warns that driver 22.4.1 contains some noticeable known issues users should consider before installing the update. For example, the company has confirmed that its graphics drivers can mess with CPU settings on Ryzen-based computers. Also, you may experience a loss of some transparency effects on Windows 10, and some graphics cards may get stuck at 100% GPU load after closing a game. Here is a list of all known issues in AMD Software 22.4.1:

  • Display mode of 4K 120Hz may be missing on some FreeSync™ displays using some AMD Graphics Products such as Radeon™ RX 5700 XT.
  • GPU utilization may be stuck at 100% in Radeon performance metrics after closing games on some AMD Graphics Products such as Radeon™ 570.
  • Some users on Windows® 10 operating system may observe the absence of the windows transparency aero effect.
  • Ryzen CPU Overclock settings may be changed after resetting or importing a profile from Radeon Performance Tuning Options.
  • Using Radeon™ Super Resolution on 2560x1600 resolution displays may produce a system hang. A temporary workaround is to set the display Scaling Mode to Full Panel.
  • Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.
  • Radeon performance metrics and logging features may intermittently report extremely high and incorrect memory clock values.

Compatibility-wise, you can install AMD Software 22.4.1 only on systems with 64-bit versions of Windows 10 and 11 paired with RX 400 and newer (desktop) or Radeon 600 Series and newer (mobile) GPUs. AMD Software 22.4.1 is available on the official website or inside the Radeon Settings app.
