AMD released a new version of its Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition that adds day-one support for a pair of upcoming AAA games.
Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.3.1 will support Final Fantasy XV and Warhammer: Vermintide II when the games arrive on March 6 and 8, respectively. AMD was able to push out support for the new titles right before they launch, joining Nvidia (which released a compatible driver last week) at the driver support party. The new Radeon driver also improves performance in DOTA 2, with up to 6% faster framerates (over the previously available 17.12.1 driver) using RX 580 graphics cards at 3840 x 2160.
Several fixes are also included with the updated software, including intermittent hangs and crashes in Sea of Thieves, texture flickering on trees or hills using multi-GPU enabled systems in Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and color corruption when changing some game settings with a multi-GPU setup in World of Tanks. The driver also corrected an issue in Radeon Chill where hotkeys would fail to reset when the settings were restored to default.
