Me and Dice just last night were talking about them needing to release a driver.. welp that was quick

Although really want to test the AotS benchmark 2.0. AFAIK it's not available yet, as it has not updated through steam in sometime(unless it's the same one as before but newer version?).

Edit: Saw the DX12 article you posted, found my answer about the benchmarkQuote
