AMD today made available the latest version of their Radeon software drivers, Adrenalin Edition 18.11.2
, for supported graphics solutions. This brings with it support for the hotly anticipated Battlefield V game title, as well as some fixes to issues that users have been awaiting. Driver software notifications no longer list erroneously the current installed driver version and, more importantly, the annoying bug affecting some RX Vega users of elevated memory clocks even during system idle states has been resolved. The driver also brings with it support for a Vulkan extension, VK_AMD_memory_overallocation_behavior, that "allows controlling whether explicit overallocation beyond the device memory heap sizes is allowed or not" as AMD puts it themselves. Things are not all rosy, however, with known issues including potential crashing of Assassin's Creed: Odyssey at some locations on Windows 7 systems and possible mouse lag with multi-display setups with at least one display enabled but powered off. This is disappointing considering an older driver update from September had seemingly fixed it too.
Fixed Issues: Radeon RX Vega Series graphics products may experience elevated memory clocks during system idle. Radeon Software update notifications may sometimes incorrectly list the currently installed driver as an available software update. Known Issues: Some systems running multiple displays may experience mouse lag when at least one display is enabled but powered off. Assassin's Creed: Odyssey may experience a game crash at certain locations of the game on Windows7 enabled system configurations.
