New Final Fantasy XV update adds support for AMD Phenom II processors, fixes performance degradation

Square Enix has released a brand new update for Final Fantasy XV. According to the release notes, this patch adds support for AMD Phenom II processors and fixes some bug issues with NVIDIA’s Ansel tech. Furthermore, this patch also – partially – fixes the performance degradation issues we’ve already reported.

Now the reason we’re saying that the performance degradation issues have been partially fixed is because these issues remain when the high-resolution texture pack is enabled. Without it, the game now runs completely fine, even after more than 30 minutes of gameplay.

As we’ve already said, this issue is re-producible. As such, we’ll share a video this weekend showcasing that performance degradation issue.

This update will be auto-downloaded from Steam, and you can find its complete changelog below.
