The final chapter in Lara Croft’s origin trilogy releases to PC tomorrow, and if you want to get your system ready ahead of time, AMD has made available a new GPU driver release—Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.9.1—that adds support for Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
AMD’s latest driver package also adds support for Star Control: Origins, and comes with a half a dozen bug fixes to boot. They include:
- Radeon FreeSync may fail to enable when playing Monster Hunter: World.
- Radeon Settings may sometimes not appear in the right-click context menu on Windows desktop after Radeon Software installation.
- AMD Link may fail to connect on Android Pie devices due to authentication failures.
- Radeon Settings may sometimes popup an error message due to Driver and Radeon Settings version mismatch.
- Cursor or system lag may be observed on some system configurations when two or more displays are connected and one display is powered off.
- Some DirectX12 gaming applications may experience instability while recording with Radeon ReLive on system configurations using Radeon R9 290 and Radeon R9 390 series graphics products.
There are a few known issues to be aware of as well:
- Some AMD Ryzen Desktop Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics system configurations may experience a black screen during installation downgrade to a previous Radeon Software version. A recommended workaround is to perform a clean install during Radeon Software installation.
- Radeon RX Vega Series graphics products may experience elevated memory clocks during system idle.
- 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. A clean installation is recommended when performing this Radeon Software upgrade.
Go here to download the 18.9.1 driver package, assuming you’re running a Radeon graphics card. If you own an Nvidia graphics card, the driver you’re looking for is the 399.24 WHQL driver package, which released a few days ago.
