AMD Rolls In Support For The Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. In Latest Radeon Drivers

Today AMD are releasing Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.10.2, their second driver release for October. Rather than a major, all-encompassing update to the GPU driver stack, RSAE 18.10.2 gets users ready for an eagerly anticipated upcoming beta, as well as solving a few niggling issues.

The main focus of RSAE 18.10.2 is support for the Fallout 76 B.E.T.A., an opt-in testing program for the game that is set to begin on PC on October 30th. Fallout is one of the more popular franchises out there, so ensuring that gamers are in the best possible position to play the game and provide good feedback is essential. Fallout 76 itself launches on November 14th, and hopefully AMD will be able to use data gathered during the beta to make the Day-0 launch drivers as stable as possible.

Meanwhile, two known issues have been fixed in this driver release that were irking the AMD community at large. The first is a frustrating but infrequent crash that occurred when games that use the Vulcan renderer launch. The second was a specific issue with Assassin's Creed: Odyssey running on a multi-GPU setup. As always, fixes are a welcome addition to any driver update, no matter how niche.

AMD have also identified three new issues slated for a fix in a future driver release.

Sunsetting 32-bit Support

With these drivers AMD are formally bringing to an end general GPU driver support for 32-bit operating systems. The vast majority of consumer systems now run with a 64-bit OS, but those still in need of legacy support will still be able to download and use the previous driver.
