AMD’s latest Radeon Software Adrenalin 22.8.1 graphics driver is a go. Like Nvidia’s Game Ready 516.94 WHQL, AMD is providing support for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and Thymesia. There’s also Radeon Boost for Halo Infinite when using Variable Rate Shading.
As always, AMD takes the occasion to fix some bugs, most notably solving displays flickering black when switching between video playback and gameplay, freezes in Project Zomboid, and crashes in Stormworks: Build and Rescue.
On the other hand, there are still some annoying bugs to be fixed, such as stuttering in Call of Duty: Warzone and Fortnite (DX11), or crashes in DaVinci Resolve Studio 17 when using the AMD encoder on some AMD graphics products.
