AMD releases their Radeon Software Adrenalin 18.9.3 driver 

AMD has officially released their Radeon Software Adrenalin 18.9.3 driver, which launches with game-specific optimisations for Forza Horizon 4 and Assassin's Creed Odyssey. 

Alongside these gaming optimisations, AMD's latest drivers address stuttering issues found in specific high-framerate FreeSync configurations and addresses driver installation issues with systems containing 16-core processors. These changed will make it much easier to install Radeon Software Adrenalin drivers on an AMD Threadripper-based system.
