AMD releases Radeon Software version 18.1.1

AMD has released their first official driver of 2018, fixing a large number of bug/issues within their Radeon Software. This driver addresses Radeon’s widely reported DirectX 9 issues, which prevented select titles from booting since the release of Radeon Software Adrenalin. This Fix was previously released in the form of an alpha driver release. 

This driver release offers no performance optumisations for specific games, though it does fix some issues that were present in MUlti-GPU users who play Starcraft 2 and Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds.    


AMD releases Radeon Software version 18.1.1  

Introducing Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition, artfully designed and meticulously crafted to unleash the powerful performance and innovation built into Radeonâ„¢ Graphics through an incredibly intuitive and utterly beautiful user interface for both PCs and mobile devices.
