AMD has officially released their Radeon Software 18.5.1 driver for GCN or newer graphics cards and AMD Ryzen+Vega APUs, providing users with support for Microsoft PlayReady 3.0 and increased performance in Ancestors Legacy. 

Thanks to this new driver update, Radeon users can expect up to a 6% performance boost on AMD RX Vega 56 and up to a 13% performance boost on AMD's RX 580 when playing the game at 1080p Ultra settings when compared to Radeon Software version 18.4.1.

Radeon Software Adrenalin version 18.5.1 also fixes an issue which can prevent HBCC settings from properly resetting on Radeon RX Vega series GPUs and a bug which can increase load time durations in Destiny 2.
