AMD's latest drivers fix

AMD's Radeon Software 21.10.4 driver has launched  

AMD's Radeon Software 21.10.3 driver promised to deliver Radeon users performance boosts as larger a 21% in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Sadly, this driver turned out to be a mixed bag for Radeon users, resulting in visual corruption issues that were not present within AMD's older Radeon Software releases. 

AMD has been quick to rectify these issues, releasing their Radeon Software 21.10.4 driver to combat this visual corruption bug in Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, PC gamers can expect the performance increases offered by AMD's 21.10.3 driver and none of its downsides.  

Below are the release notes for AMD's Radeon Software 21.10.4 drivers.
