It’s The Division 2 launch day for us normies that didn’t pay up the early access cost, and AMD is ready for it with a new day one driver update for Radeon graphics card owners.
The AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.3.2 driver adds official support Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, providing all the usual last-minute performance tweaks and fixes. AMD hasn’t provided any specifics on this one, although their partnership with Ubisoft for the game meant The Division 2 already ran great on AMD Radeon hardware in the beta version.
A second headline addition is the support for Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Gathering Storm expansion. You wouldn’t think much would change with a simple expansion pack but AMD has been busy tweaking things and yielded 4% performance gains on a Radeon VII when playing Gathering Storm at 4K screen resolution. Average FPs has now increased from 72.7 FPS up to 75.7 FPS. They used an Intel Core i7-7700K CPU for the benchmarks, naturally.
Tieing into the news earlier this week that DirectX 12 support had arrived for the Windows 7 version of World of Warcraft, this 19.3.2 GPU driver update adds DX12 on Windows 7 for supported game titles. Again, this is exclusive to WoW for now, but Microsoft has said it’s working with other developers on supporting this feature.
