AMD has officially released their Radeon Software Adrenalin 18.2.1 driver, which offers game-specific optimisations for Square Enix's Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age.  

This new driver iteration also offers several bug fixes for Radeon users, primarily relating to FreeSync and Radeon Chill/Overlay support within gaming titles that make use of the Vulkan API (Titles like DOOM 2016 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus). 



Introducing Radeon™ Software Adrenalin Edition, artfully designed and meticulously crafted to unleash the powerful performance and innovation built into Radeon Graphics through an incredibly intuitive and utterly beautiful user interface for both PCs and mobile devices.

using the latest drivers, you can only work with 3 gpus using MSI afterburner (according to my own findings) . If you add the fourth one, MSI Afterburner does not detect voltages or clocks.

Adding a driver blockchain solves this issue.Quote
