AMD launches their Radeon Software 21.11.3 driver for Windows OS’

AMD has just launched their Radeon Software 21.11.3 GPU drivers for Windows 10/11 systems, optimising their Radeon Software for new games like Microsoft Flight Simulator Game of the Year Edition and Farming Simulator 22. Additionally, these new drivers will also enable support for eight new Vulkan API extensions. 
 
Strangely, this new driver does not contain support AMD’s optimisations for Halo Infinite, which were made available earlier this week as part of a standalone, unnumbered driver release. Currently, we expect AMD to release a Radeon Software 21.11.4 driver that adds these optimisations to AMD’s mainline Radeon Software releases. The lack of these Halo optimisations makes AMD’s 21.11.3 driver a confusing release for the company, and a driver to avoid for Halo Infinite players.
