Earlier this month, in preparation for the launch of Borderlands 3, AMD released their beta 19.9.2 graphics card driver update. At the time, however, given that these were largely just to provide added support for a game, they didn’t come with the WHQL certification.
For those unaware of the term, WHQL (Windows Hardware Quality Labs) essentially means that Microsoft has given them their rubber stamp of approval.
If you have, therefore, been holding off on these drivers (since they have been in a beta release) then we have good news. AMD Radeon Adrenalin 19.9.2 is officially out as WHQL certified.
Now, you might be wondering if this update (on the update) has come with any changes. The short answer is no. In so far as can be ascertained, the drivers are exactly the same with just the certification now applied.
If you haven’t downloaded them yet, here are the update notes:
You might, at this point, be wondering if you should get them. Well, given that these are now WHQL certified, if you own an AMD 5700 (or XT) graphics card, these are officially the best drivers to have at the moment. As such, getting them installed is probably a good idea.
As (nearly) always, presuming you have Adrenaline already installed on your PC you should be prompted to make the update now from within the app. If not, however, you can visit the official AMD driver website via the link here!
If you have already downloaded the 19.2.2 (beta) driver, however, at this point it seems entirely up to you. As above, there doesn’t seem to be much in it other than the little WHQL badge. As such, if you’re not prompted, it’s probably safe to say you don’t have to worry.
What do you think? How often do you update your graphics card drivers? In addition, did you install the 19.2.2 beta? – Let us know in the comments!
