AMD Offers Up New Radeon Driver For Final Fantasy XV

The New Adrenaline drivers can give you and your convertible boys a nice boost in performance.

1

Final Fantasy XV finally arrived on PC last week to critical and commercial success. Final Fantasy fans and PC gaming enthusiasts have been drawn to the ultimate version of the game and the technological advancements it is showcasing. While the game does feature some NVIDIA-specific graphical effects and has been seen in Team Green promotional materials, AMD users have a new driver that offers a serious boost for in-game performance.

The AMD Adrenaline 18.3.2 driver release can give Radeon RX users up to a seven percent boost in framerates in Final Fantasy XV. Additionally, this new driver eliminates some random stuttering that was being reported by some Radeon hardware users. The full driver notes are listed below:

Resolved Issues

  • Radeon FreeSync may rapidly change between min and max range when enabled causing stutter in fullscreen games on single display system configurations.
  • Sid Meier's Civilization® V may fail to launch on Hybrid Graphics system configurations when using DirectX®9 API.
  • Radeon FreeSync may exhibit a black screen on some games when using Samsung™ CF791 displays.
  • Radeon Chill game settings profiles may fail to enable on Vulkan™ API games.
  • Radeon Overlay may fail to open in some Vulkan™ API games.
  • Need for Speed™ Payback may exhibit corruption on some terrain.
  • Textures in Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth3 V Generation™ may appear corrupted or exhibit flickering colours.

Known Issues

  • Radeon FreeSync may intermittently incorrectly engage during Chrome video playback resulting in playback flicker.
  • Radeon Overlay hotkey may fail to bring up the overlay or may cause a Radeon Host Application crash intermittently on a limited number of gaming titles.
  • Radeon FreeSync may rapidly change between min and max range when enabled causing stutter in fullscreen games on multi display system configurations.
  • Flickering may be observed on the performance metrics overlay when Enhanced Sync is enabled on some Radeon FreeSync connected displays.
  • A random system hang may be experienced after extended periods of use on system configurations using 12 GPU's for compute workloads.
  • Water textures may appear to be missing in World of Final Fantasy™.
  • The GPU Workload feature may cause a system hang when switching to Compute while AMD CrossFire is enabled. A workaround is to disable AMD CrossFire before switching the toggle to Compute workloads.
