AMD has announced the availability of a new version of its Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition Graphics driver, namely the 21.8.2 Optional (21.20.25.01) package, which improves performance by up to 6% in Myst @ 4K Medium settings with Raytracing enabled.
In addition to that, this update implements support for Aliens: Fireteam Elite and Little Nightmares II: Enhanced Edition titles, fixes image corruption seen while playing F1 2021 in Split Screen mode, and removes corrupt light rays observed when playing Control using DirectX 12.
However, this update version 21.8.2 might still encounter certain issues in PAYDAY 2, Myst, Kingshunt, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and Horizon Zero Dawn games, as well as on configurations that include a Radeon RX 6800 XT, RX 6700 XT, and RX 500 Series graphics products.
Regarding compatibility, besides a supported GPU (highlighted in the Release Notes below), take into account that your configuration must be running a 64-bit variant of Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating systems.
Therefore, remove any previous version present on your computer, save and run the appropriate package for your computer, wait for all files required to be made available, and follow all instructions displayed on the screen for a complete upgrade.
With this in mind, if you consider applying this release, download AMD Radeon Adrenalin Edition Graphics Driver 21.8.2, install it and perform a reboot once finished. Also, check back with us to stay “updated one minute ago.”
