AMD has just launched its Radeon Software 20.8.2 drivers, preparing their users for August's most highly anticipated PC released. These releases include Mortal Shell, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Marvel's Avengers. 

Radeon's 20.8.2 driver also provides Radeon users with significant performance uplifts in A Total War Saga: Troy, delivering a 12% boost for their Radeon RX 5700 XT when using the game's High Preset.
