AMD's Radeon 19.7.3 driver optimized for Wolfenstein: Youngblood is now available

There's a new AMD graphics driver in town and it's delivering optimizations for Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Anyone with a graphics card from the red team planning to pick up the newly released Bethesda-published game is recommended to have this Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.3 driver installed.

According to AMD, Wolfenstein: Youngblood will perform up to 13% better using this new driver compared to last week's 19.7.2 release, with testing being done on an RX 5700. The MachineGames and Arkane Studios-developed co-op shooter is now available on PC via the launcher and Steam.

The new driver also comes with support for the Radeon GPU Profiler and Microsoft PIX for AMD's new RX 5700 line of cards.
