The benefits for Fallout 76 are fairly nebulous with AMD just touting official driver support for Bethesda’s online survival RPG. However, there are some tangible improvements inbound for both Hitman 2 and Battlefield V Early Access.
First of all, Hitman 2 will benefit from 3% higher frame rates with the 18.11.1 driver compared to the 18.10.2 GPU driver while using a Radeon RX 580 8GB at 1080p screen resolution.
The best performance gains are to be found in Battlefield V though. Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB owners will net themselves 8% faster frame rates in Battlefield V at 1080p, while there is a 9% performance boost to be had for Radeon RX 580 8GB owners while playing at 1080p resolution. Those are the sort of gains that aren’t to be sniffed at, and is the equivalent of jumping from 60fps to 66fps average frame rate.
As ever, there are also a number of fixed and known issues included with the Radeon Adrenalin 18.11.1 GPU driver update.
