AMD Radeon Drivers Updated With Resident Evil 3 Optimisations

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅03.04.2020 15:24:26

AMD Radeon have published their first GPU driver update for April 2020, bringing with it key optimisations for CAPCOM's remastered release of Resident Evil 3 on PC. Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.4.1 is currently available to download from or through the ReLive desktop application, and also incorporates a handful of bug fixes for issues present in the previous release.

In addition to being a Day-0 driver update for Resident Evil 3 - developed in conjunction with CAPCOM - that offers performance upgrades on Radeon NAVI GPU hardware, RSAE 20.4.1 brings with it three important features:

Breathtaking performance – The Radeon RX 5600 XT and RX 5700 XT offer class-leading framerates at 1080p and 1440p.

FidelityFX CAS – Hardware-agnostic dynamic sharpening filter to improve visual details and counteract the softening of other post-processing effects.

AMD FreeSync Premium Pro – Enjoy stunning visuals with the leading adaptive sync technology, delivering stutter-free and tear-free gaming with HDR rendering and Low-Framerate Compensation.

Those experiencing teething issues in DOOM Eternal or HDR visuals in the Vulkan API will be relieved to hear that this driver should also alleviate some issues they may be experiencing, while Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm players on Radeon Vega hardware should no longer experience the black screen/application hang error.

Coupled to this list of fixed issues is an extensive round-up of newly identified problems to be addressed in the near future.

This driver is compatible with 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and 10, and supports Radeon hardware as far back as the HD7000-series (GCN architecture). Users running Radeon Mobile Processors with Vega Graphics should also be able to use this driver release rather than rely on an OEM package.

For a limited time Resident Evil 3 is available as part of AMD's Radeon Raise The Game Bundle. Until April 25th those who purchase a Radeon RX 5700 or 5600-series graphics card will be eligible for both it and a copy of Monster World Hunter: Iceborne Master Edition, free of charge.
