AMD's Latest Drivers Boasts up to 24% more performance in World War Z

AMD's latest Radeon Software release showcases exactly why game-specific driver optimisations are necessary, with Radeon Software Adrenalin version 19.4.2 promising up to a 24% boost in performance over the company's earlier 19.4.1 edition in World War Z.

With this driver, Ubisoft's Anno 1800 has also received optimisations, but AMD hasn't listed any firm performance data for the game, which means that the performance boost offered by this driver is likely to be minimal, at least when compared to World War Z.    

Sadly, this release of Radeon Software lacks any major bug fixes and contains several known issues, but thankfully these problems only seem to impact a minority of end users. More information about this driver is available below.
