AMD has released a brand new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.8.1 adds support for Microsoft PlayReady 3.0 on the Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products.
Furthermore, this new driver fixes a black screen or flickering when applying auto overclocking memory with games or applications running in fullscreen on the Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products. It also addresses the negative performance impact that mpact that Radeon AntiLag had in select games.
It’s also worth noting that this driver resolves the color corruption issue that could occur after installing the Radeon Software. This issue could occur on systems with Windows 10 May 2019 update. We had this issue and the only way we could resolve it was by restarting our system.
But anyway, you can download this new driver from here, and below you can find its complete changelog.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
