AMD’s Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.2.3 Drivers Packs APU and Ryzen Mobile Support

AMD has released their Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.2.3 driver, bringing with it the company’s long-promised support for Ryzen Mobile and their other APU products. 

PC racers will also be glad to know that this driver also contains optimisations for  DiRT Rally 2.0, offering up to a 3% performance boost at 1080p using a Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card. This driver also contains fixes for Battlefield V graphical issues, fan speed oddities on their Radeon VII graphics card and application crashes when using ReLive’s wireless VR feature. 

AMD’s APU family of products will no doubt receive the biggest update, with AMD promising up to 10% average performance gains in modern gaming titles when upgrading from driver version 17.40 to 19.2.3 on a Ryzen 2500U processor. AMD got this average number after testing Destiny 2, Middle Earth: Shadow of War, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Civilization 6, and Witcher 3. 17% average performance gains were reported across eSports titles such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Fortnite, Player Unknown’s Battleground, and World of Warcraft.

Moving forward, all of AMD’s Radeon Software released will support the company’s Ryzen Mobile processors and other APU products. This also includes AMD’s desktop APUs, such as the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G.
