AMD releases their Radeon Software 18.3.2 driver for Final Fantasy XV

AMD has officially released their new Radeon Software 18.3.2 driver, addressing a stuttering issue within Final Fantasy XV while also delivering up to a 7% performance boost within the title.  

Radeon has reported a 4% increase in performance when using AMD’s RX Vega 64 and a 7% increase when using an RX 580 8GB. AMD’s testing was conducted using the game’s Highest Preset. Sadly this driver doesn’t include any performance improvements for other games or any other bug fixes. 

AMD’s Raven Ridge drivers remain separate from their other GPU drivers, which means that their Vega=powered APUs will not benefit from the performance enhancements offered by this driver.
