AMD Radeon Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.2.2 optimized for Metro Exodus, Far Cry New Dawn & Crackdown 3

AMD has released a brand new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.2.2 driver adds support for the Radeon VII and is optimized for Far Cry New Dawn, Metro Exodus and Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Gathering Storm.

Furthermore, this driver is also optimized for Crackdown 3 and improves performance by up to 5% on a Radeon RX 590 graphics card.

It’s also worth noting that this driver addresses some Radeon VII issues. For instance, it addresses  a system hang when attempting to perform a timeout detection and recovery on Windows 7 system configurations, some line corruptions in APEX Legends, as well as some issues with the AMD WattMan.
