With several gaming releases within the last couple of days, or, indeed, just on the horizon, it’s not exactly surprising to find that AMD has announced the launch of brand new graphics card drivers. If you do, therefore, plan on pumping some time into Myst, Aliens Fireteam Elite, or Little Nightmares II: Enhanced Edition, making the update seems to be well to your advantage as the latest Radeon Adrenalin 21.8.2 drivers offer game ready optimisations to get the best out of your GPUs performance!

As part of the release noted, AMD has confirmed the following changes, updates, and game ready optimisations:

    • Up to 6% increase in performance in Myst @ 4K Medium settings with Raytracing enabled, using Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 21.8.2 on the 16GB Radeon™ RX 6800XT graphics card, versus the previous software driver edition 21.8.1.RS-398
