AMD Adrenalin 21.11.2 – Game Ready for Battlefield 2042 on Radeon 6000 GPUs!

AMD graphics card owners, I’m afraid it’s that time again where brand new drivers have just been released. Yes, we know, AMD releases new drivers practically every week. And by and large, the frequency is so high that we daresay that many of you often don’t bother updating to them at all. Or at least, not quite so regularly as they are released. – With the upcoming release of Battlefield 2042, however, if you are planning on dumping a good chunk of hours into this, then the update definitely seems to be worth your while as not only does it bring game ready support, but AMD is claiming that when compared to the prior driver release, this new one should significantly boost the game’s performance!

AMD Radeon Adrenalin 21.11.2

Unlike many of their driver update, the curious thing about this latest one is that support for Battlefield 2042 is, pretty much, where it begins and ends. There are no fixed, no additional support offered, it’s literally one driver that solely enhances the performance of Battlefield 2042 on your AMD Radeon 6000 graphics card. – So, for owners of Radeon 5000 or older, or perhaps those who are not planning to check this title out, we would perhaps suggest that you can afford to skip this one!

Update Notes:

  • Battlefield™ 2042
    • Up to 14% increase in performance in Battlefield™ 2042 @ 4K Ultra Settings, using Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 21.11.2 on the 16 GB Radeon™ RX 6900 XT graphics card, versus the previous software driver version 21.10.4.RS-431
    • Up to 15% increase in performance in Battlefield™ 2042 @ 4K Ultra Settings, using Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 21.11.2 on the 16 GB Radeon™ RX 6800 XT graphics card, versus the previous software driver version 21.10.4.RS-432
    • Up to 11% increase in performance in Battlefield™ 2042 @ 4K Ultra Settings, using Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 21.11.2 on the 12 GB Radeon™ RX 6700 XT graphics card, versus the previous software driver version 21.10.4.RS-433

Where Can I Get My Update?

As always, if you already have the AMD Adrenalin Edition app installed on your PC (which you should if you have one of their graphics cards), then a quick check of it should now prompt you to download and update to this latest driver release. However, if that doesn’t work, you can learn more (and/or manually download it) via the link here! – As noted above though, unless Battlefield 2042 is on your gaming agenda, and specifically on an AMD Radeon 6000 GPU, we suggest that should you choose to skip this, you’ll not be any the worse for it!

What do you think? How often do you update your graphics card drivers? – Let us know in the comments!
