AMD graphics card owners, yes December may be young, and Christmas may be just on the horizon, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that new drivers won’t be released looking to bring you support for the final smatterings of games attempting to get out of the door before the new year. So, with AMD Radeon Adrenalin 21.12.1 now released, with it bringing game-ready support for Icarus, Halo Infinite, and much more, this definitely seems to be worth checking out!
