AMD Radeon Prep. For Far Cry 5 With Fourth New Driver This Month

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅26.03.2018 22:12:51



The AMD Radeon Technologies Group's driver team has been on the ball throughout 2018 thus far, releasing driver update after driver update to prepare as much as they can for Day 1 game releases. Today is no different as they release the fourth driver update this month alone ahead of Far Cry 5's launch on PC.

Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.3.4 is a release intended specifically for the launch of Far Cry 5 in the small hours on March 27th, containing optimisations to provide the best possible day one experience on Radeon graphics hardware. That aside, only a few tweaks have been made to the underlying package, as evidence by only a slight increment the driver driver version (from 17.50.33.01 to 17.50.33.05).

RSAE 18.3.4 also corrects a couple of identified problems in other workloads, namely some blockchain processing performance issues and a particularly nasty lighting bug affecting foliage in Final Fantasy XV. A couple of new bugs have populated RTG's hit-list for the next incremental driver update.

These drivers are available for 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and 10, with Windows 8.1 supported via the Windows 7 driver. You can download them here: https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-Edition-18.3.4-Release-Notes.aspx.

Far Cry 5 releases on Steam at 6am GMT tomorrow March 27th.
