Attention AMD graphics card owners! Following the recent release of Resident Evil Village and the Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition, you might already have more than a few gaming plans set for this weekend. If those two titles are, however, on your list, then you might want to check your drivers as with the release of the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 21.5.1 update, game-ready optimizations for your AMD GPU await you!
As with most graphics card updates, the release notes are quite long. So if you do plan to go through everything below, you might want to grab yourself a coffee first! Here we go…

Where Can I Get My Update?
As always, if you already have AMD Adrenalin 2020 Edition installed, then a quick check of the app should prompt you to download this latest version.
