AMD's latest Graphics driver prep Radeon for WWZ: Aftermath, Diablo II: Resurrected and New World

AMD's Radeon Software 21.9.2 driver has arrived

AMD has just launched their Radeon Software 21.9.2 driver, delivering game-specific optimisations to users of their graphics cards for World War Z Aftermath (with releases today), Diablo II: Resurrected, and New World (Amazon's upcoming MMO).

In Diablo II: Resurrected, AMD has reported that their Radeon 21.9.2 drivers deliver performance boosts of up to 13% at 4K Very High Settings on an RX 6700 XT when compared to their older 21.9.1 driver. Sadly, AMD has not revealed what framerates the game was running at under these in-game settings. 

AMD has also updated their drivers to enable their Auto-overclocking feature for users of Ryzen 5000 series processors and Radeon 6000 series graphics cards. Previously, some users of AMD's 21.9.1 drivers were unable to access this new feature. 

Below are AMD's full release notes for their Radeon Software 21.9.2 drivers.
