AMD releases their Radeon Software 18.10.1 driver for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

AMD has officially released their Radeon Software Adrenalin 18.10.1 driver, which adds game-specific optimisations for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Windows 10's October 2018 update. 

Users of AMD's RX Vega series of graphics cards can expect a 5% performance boost in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at 1080p very high settings while the RX 580 users achieve a 6% performance boost when using the same graphical settings.  

AMD has also added support for several new Vulkan extensions to their drivers, which should allow developers to achieve higher levels of performance when using them. This driver only supports 64-bit operating systems.
