AMD's Radeon Software 18.7.1 driver to offer up to 28% performance boost in Earthfall

AMD has officially launched their new Radeon Software 18.7.1 drivers, which support both the company's dedicated graphics cards and their modern Ryzen APU hardware. 

The biggest draw of this new driver is AMD's game-specific optimisations for Earthfall, delivering a performance boost of up to 28% in Earthfall when using an RX Vega 56, and a 22% performance boost when using an RX 580. 

Alongside this performance boost, AMD's new Radeon 18.7.1 driver also offers gamers bug fixes for Fortnite season 5, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and CorelDraw.
