AMD’s new GPU drivers are about to release with Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.7.1 version. AMD has claimed to work on it for the heavy details in various games and also improved the performance of Earthfall. The drivers will be released tomorrow on July 13th.
The release noted of these drivers have reported that the game will run 28% faster as compared to the 18.6.1 driver’s version. Which is quite a hefty improvement in comparison. The 3 examples provided in the release notes of the drivers are as follows:
- At 1440p i.e. 2560×1440 the performance is up to 28% faster on the Radeon RX Vega 5, 8GB model.
