AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.11.2 is now available, optimized for Battlefield 5

AMD has released a brand new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, this driver adds support for Battlefield 5. Unfortunately, AMD did not provide any percentage improvements over the AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.11.1 (which was also listed as a driver that was optimized for DICE’s shooter).

Moreover, this new driver does not bring a lot of new features or improvements to the table. This latest driver adds support for VK_AMD_memory_overallocation_behavior (an extension allows controlling whether explicit overallocation beyond the device memory heap sizes is allowed or not).

Furthermore, the AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.11.2 fixes the elevated memory clocks during system idle that could be found in some Radeon RX Vega Series graphics products, and addresses the incorrectly lists of the Radeon Software update notifications.

Those interested can download this new driver from here, and below you can find its complete changelog.
