Star Control: Origins is due to be released on September 20th

In advance of Shadow of the Tomb Raider's worldwide release tomorrow AMD have published their latest graphics driver package for launch-day support. Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.9.1 will offer the best possible performance and stability for those running the game with AMD graphics hardware dating back to the HD 7000-series, and is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and 10.

As well as Shadow of the Tomb Raider support, AMD are also optimising these drivers for Star Control: Origins. This game, a strategy title from Stardock, is part of the Raise the Game promotion which also includes Strange Brigade and Assassin's Creed: Odyssey.

The drivers also implement a number of bugfixes to address specific driver issues with certain applications. Included this time around is a fix for the Monster Hunter World FreeSync problem, AMD Link's failure to connect with certain Android Pie devices, and a specific issue with using Radeon ReLive in DirectX 12 games with an R9 290/390 GPU.

AMD also identify new driver issues which are on their radar to be fixed in an upcoming patch.

You can download the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.9.1 driver here or via the official Radeon ReLive app.
