AMD finally releases driver update for Raven Ridge - Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition Q2 2018

AMD has finally released a driver update for Raven Ridge 

AMD's Raven Ridge Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G CPUs released back in February, promising to deliver more gaming performance than any CPU with an integrated graphics solution. For over three months there were no new drivers for AMD's APU, providing no bug fixes or game specific optimisations to AMD's latest APUs, leaving owners to feel neglected, at least when compared to users of Radeon dedicated graphics cards. 

Up-to-date GPU drivers are vital when it comes to achieving the best performance in high-profile game releases, making the lack of driver updates for AMD's Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G extremely disappointing, though now the wait has finally come to an end thanks to the release of Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition Q2 2018. 

This new driver brings Raven Ridge one step closer to AMD's mainstream drivers, with the company planning to merge their Dedicated and Integrated Radeon Software releases in the near future. The patch notes of this driver mention ReLive and AMD's Radeon overlay, confirming that this is proper Radeon Software Adrenalin, a considerable upgrade over the pre-ReLive driver that AMD's older APU drivers were based on.   

Update - We have confirmed that AMD's new Radeon Software Adrenalin Q2 2018 drivers work on both AMD's dedicated and integrated graphics solutions. AMD has officially merged their iGPU and dGPU drivers.
