AMD Releases their Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.2.1 Driver New Gaming Optumisations

AMD has officially released their Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.2.1 driver, the company's first driver of February 2019. This driver delivers Radeon users game-specific optimisations for APEX Legends, The Division 2's Private Beta and Assassin's Creed Odyssey. 

In Assassin's Creed Odyssey, RX Vega 64 users can expect to see a 5% boost in game performance, delivering a smoother gameplay experience within the game's large open world. Several issues within AMD's previous driver have also been addressed, including a bug which would suggest that Radeon users update to older driver versions.  

Sadly this new driver release does not ship with support for AMD's Ryzen mobile and Zen-powered APUs, which means that users of integrated Radeon Vega graphics will be unable to use the latest version of Radeon Software Adrenalin.
