Radeon’s Software Adrenalin 20.11.2 driver for the RX 6800 series and WoW ShadowlandsÂ
AMD has just launched its Radeon Software 20.11.2 driver for Windows PCs, offering PC gamers full driver support for the company’s new Radeon RX 6800 series of graphics cards alongside driver optimisations for World of Warcraft Shadowlands.Â
Radeon Software 20.11.2 also features several new driver fixes, implementing several setup or game-specific issues. In addition to this, AMD has also released an extensive list of known issues which the company are working on.Â
Note that AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 series GPUs are currently facing issues with some ray tracing enabled titles, which makes sense given the fact that these games were developed when Nvidia was the only manufacturer of DXR compatible hardware. These early issues will be addressed with future Radeon Software releases, and future DXR titles are to be developed with both AMD and Nvidia hardware in mind.Â
