AMD has officially announced the release of its latest Radeon Adrenalin 21.2.1 graphics card driver update, and while it does come with a number of moderate fixes and improvements, the key focus of the new launch is undoubtedly it bringing game-ready support for the highly-popular PC gaming title ‘Medium‘.

As part of the official update notes, AMD has cited the following fixes and optimizations brought in the new 21.2.1 graphics card driver update:
- Medium: Up to 9% increase in performance in The Medium @ 4K High settings, with Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 21.2.1 on the 16 GB Radeon RX 6800XT graphics card, versus the previous software driver edition 21.1.1.
