Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition Supports 'FF12: The Zodiac Age'

AMD released a new version of its Radeon graphics driver, Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.2.1, adding official support for the newly released Square Enix title, Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age. This day-one driver should give AMD graphics cards users the best possible performance for the game.

The new Radeon driver also resolves several nagging issues, including Radeon Overlay launch problems and Radeon Chill profile enabling issues in some Vulkan games, several FreeSync issues (including a fix for a black screen when using a Samsung CF791 display), and terrain and texture corruptions in Need For Speed: Payback and Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth3 V Generation, respectively (and yes, that mess of letters and bafflinf punctuation is the actual name of an actual game). It also fixes an issue in Sid Meier’s Civilization V where the game would fail to launch on Hybrid graphics systems that used DirectX 9.

The new Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.2.1 is available now from AMD’s website.

    Once you can use microcode updates to correct or change an instruction within a CPU, you have a large security hole. How do you insure that the microcode update is authentic? You could have the operating system compare a hash of the update to a value stored in a website, but that requires on-line access.
    You could insist that the TPM have a storage area into which you can save the microcode update, or the microcode signature. Then you have to transfer the responsibility of CPU update to the Motherboard bios.

    Here again, if you can defeat the motherboard bios, you are back to my initial preposition -- microcode updates are a giant hole into which you can pour insecurity and introduce new instructions--new instructions which can be used to leak information.

    I wonder if the fix for the Samsung blackscreen would cover an Acer XF240H. I'm pulling my hair out trying to find the bug.
