AMD's latest Radeon Driver delivers over 10% gains in Wolfenstein: Youngblood

AMD has released its latest edition of Radeon Software, which packs in performance improvements for Wolfenstein: Youngblood, a wide array of bug fixes and support for a wide range of new Vulkan API extensions. 

With this driver, AMD promised up to a 13% performance boost in Wolfenstein: Youngblood when using an AMD RX 5700 under the game's Mein Leban preset. 

Below are the full release notes for AMD's Radeon Software 19.7.3 driver. 

AMD's latest Radeon Driver delivers over 10% gains in Wolfenstein: Youngblood  

Support For

- Wolfenstein: Youngblood
- Up to 13% better performance with Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.3 in Wolfenstein: Youngblood than with Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.2RS-304

- Radeon GPU Profiler on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products

- Microsoft PIX on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products

Added Vulkan Support

VK_EXT_display_surface_counter

- This extension defines a vertical blanking period counter associated with display surfaces. It provides a mechanism to query support for such a counter from a VkSurfaceKHR object

VK_AMD_pipeline_compiler_control

- This extension provides a way to set per-pipeline compiler options, for instance, to relax rounding rules when working with mixed-precision floating point values.

VK_AMD_shader_core_properties2

- This extension exposes additional, AMD specific shader core properties for a physical device

VK_EXT_subgroup_size_control

- This extension provides additional control over subgroup size, allowing applications for instance to opt-in to different subgroup sizes on devices supporting more than just one.

VK_KHR_imageless_framebuffer

- This extension allows framebuffers to be created without the need for creating images first, allowing more flexibility in how they are used, and avoiding the need for many of the compatibility rules.

VK_KHR_variable_pointers

- This extension allows implementations to indicate their level of support for the SPV_KHR_variable_pointers SPIR-V extension. The SPIR-V extension allows shader modules to use invocation-private pointers into uniform and/or storage buffers, where the pointer values can be dynamic and non-uniform. This release adds the optional VariablePointers support.

Fixed Issues

- League of Legends™ may fail to launch on Radeon RX 5700 Series Graphics with Windows®7 system configurations.
- Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products may experience DirectX®9 application crashes or hangs after an express upgrade of Radeon Software.
- Windows Mixed Reality may fail to launch when Radeon Image Sharpening is enabled on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products.
- Audio may be out of sync with videos when using Radeon ReLive VR.
- Incorrect values may be shown in the power gauge for Radeon WattMan while applications are running on AMD Radeon VII.
- AMD Log Utility Driver may intermittently fail to install on Windows®7 system configurations.
- Radeon Anti-Lag may experience slight performance drops on some gaming applications when enabled.
- Minor stuttering may occur when playing Fortnite™ during the first few minutes of gameplay on AMD Radeon RX 5700 Series Graphics.
- Radeon Overlay may experience flickering in Vulkan® API games when Radeon Image Sharpening is enabled.
- Corruption may be observed in some tests when running Adobe™ Premier Pro 2019 benchmarks.

Known Issues

- Some system configurations may experience green color corruption after install of Radeon Software when running Windows® 10 May 2019 update.
- Stutter may be experienced when Radeon FreeSync is enabled on 240hz refresh displays with Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products.
- Radeon Performance Metrics may report incorrect VRAM utilization.
- AMD Radeon VII may experience elevated memory clocks at idle or on desktop.
- Radeon Overlay may intermittently fail to appear when toggled in game.
- Audio for clips captured by Radeon ReLive may be corrupted or garbled when desktop recording is enabled.
- Radeon RX 5700 Series Graphics may experience a black screen during uninstall on Windows®7 system configurations. A work around is to perform -uninstall in safe mode.
- Recording clips with Radeon ReLive may result in blank clips on Radeon RX 5700 Series Graphics with Windows®7 system configurations.
- Enabling Enhanced Sync may cause game, application or system crashes on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products.

Footnotes

- RS-304 - Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of July 24th, 2019 on the 8GB Radeon™ RX 5700, using a test system comprising of Intel i7 9700K CPU (3.6 GHz), 16GB DDR4-3200MHz memory, and Windows 10x64 with Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.2. and 19.7.3. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. With Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.2, running Wolfenstein: Youngblood (Vulkan) on the “Mein Leben” preset scored 55.6 FPS (average of three runs) whereas Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.3, running Wolfenstein: Youngblood (Vulkan) on the “Mein Leben” preset scored 62.7 FPS (average of three runs) for a total of 13% uplift in performance driver over driver . Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers.

Against every fibre of my being I bought this to play with my pal

Not tried it yet though 'cause he's broke lol. I'd shout him but he's away on vacation so we'll play when he's back. Looks like I'll be playing it in my Vega rig though.Quote

There is an edition of the game that has a "buddy pass" to let other people play with you for free.Quote

Yeah I went for that one as it was only £23.99.

Regular one was £21.99 so I figured I'd go for it.

Today I'm exhausted from getting through yesterday and the day before. Tried starting the install last night but it was simply too hot to run the pc.Quote
