AMD releases Radeon Software version 18.3.1

AMD's Radeon Technologies Group has officially released their Radeon Software 18.3.1 driver, which delivers game-specific optimisations which prepare for the incoming launches of Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition and Warhammer: Vermintide II.  

This driver also comes with the promise of improved performance in DOTA 2, with AMD showcasing a performance boost of up to 6% on their RX 580 GPU at 4K. Several fixes are also available for Radeon Chill, Sea of Thieves, Middle Earth: Shadow of War and World of Tanks. 

Sadly this release does not extend to AMD's recently released Ryzen series of Raven Ridge APUs, which means that users of AMD's Ryzen/Radeon Vega APUs will not be able to take advantage of this new driver release.
