Ubisoft is set to release Assassin’s Creed Odyssey next week on October 5. If you want to prep your PC ahead of time and own a Radeon graphics card, AMD has a new driver package available that is optimized for the upcoming game.
According to AMD’s internal testing, the new Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.9.3 release offers up to a 3 percent performance gain in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on Radeon RX 580 graphics cards, when running at 1920×1080. If you own a Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card, AMD claims up to a 5 percent performance gain, at 2560×1440.
The new driver release also adds support for Forza Horizon 4, though AMD didn’t provided any performance metrics. However, the company did outline a couple of bug fixes. They include:
- Stutter may be observed when exceeding Radeon FreeSync range in certain high framerate scenarios.
- System configurations with 16 CPU cores may experience a random system reboot during installation when upgrading Radeon Software from a version older than RSAE 18.8.1.
