Support for the AMD Radeon VII graphics card arrives with new 19.2.1 drivers

AMD today released a new version of the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.2.1 driver. Although the version number of this release is the same as the one from earlier this week, the new version is specifically tailored towards providing support for the Radeon VII, the brand new AMD 7nm consumer graphics card that released today, meaning anyone who manages to pick one up will want to use these drivers.

Also, this driver is only compatible with the Radeon VII, so the regular 19.2.1 driver suite is still the recommended release for other AMD graphics cards.

The company hasn't listed any other changes or support for more games for this special release, but did include a list of bugs that currently affect the new Radeon VII. Here's it in full:

  • Radeon WattMan may experience issues with changed values failing to save or load and Tuning Control features failing to apply.
  • Radeon Overlay values for Radeon WattMan may fail to apply after Radeon Overlay is closed.
  • Radeon Settings may experience an application hang when loading the performance histogram in a game profile through game manager.
  • FRTC may fail to cap frame rates when enabled for games or may fail to disable once enabled for a game.
  • AMD Radeon VII may intermittently experience a system hang when attempting to perform a timeout detection and recovery on Windows®7 system configurations.
  • AMD Radeon VII may experience intermittent system stability issues on some X399 motherboards.
  • Apex Legends™ may intermittently experience line corruption on AMD Radeon VII.

Hopefully, AMD will manage to squash some of these issues plaguing its new flagship in another driver launch soon.

The Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.2.1 driver for the Radeon VII is available to download via the links listed on the official release notes here. Once again, note that this driver is only compatible with the Radeon VII graphics card, and shouldn't be installed on systems with other cards from the company.
