NVIDIA and AMD release optimized drivers for Remedy’s supernatural action game, Control

AMD and NVIDIA have released new drivers that are optimized for Remedy’s supernatural action game, Control. Although the green team did not reveal any performance percentages increases, AMD noted that this driver improves performance under the DX11 API.

Going into more details, the AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.8.2 improves performance by up to 10%. Moreover, this driver adds support for Man of Medan, as well as for HDCP 2.3 on Radeon RX 5700 series GPUs.
