AMD Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.1.1 released with better Fortnite support and Vulkan 1.1.96




Fortnite season 7

 
AMD has released its first 2019 graphics driver. Adrenalin 19.1.1 brings improved support for Fortnite (up to… 4% faster on Season 7 on a RX 580 compared to latest 18.12.3). The support of Vulkan has been updated to the version 1.1.96 of the specs.

Fixed Issues

– Virtual Super Resolution may not show up as available on some 1440p Ultra-Wide Displays.
– Some Radeon RX Series graphics products may experience system lag when Alt+Tab is used during gameplay.
– Radeon Settings Advisor may incorrectly suggest older versions of Radeon Software as an update.
– Radeon Settings software update notifications may appear more often than expected.
– Application profile settings for Radeon WattMan may not reset to default correctly when using the reset button.
– Radeon Settings may experience a crash when clicking the restart button after a driver installation or while switching between some Radeon WattMan tabs when changing fan settings.
– Zero RPM control may fail to enable correctly when toggled on/off in Radeon Settings.
– Radeon ReLive gallery upload queue may sometimes fail to upload videos.
– Radeon Settings may sometimes incorrectly display the previously installed Radeon Software version after upgrade.
– Custom color profile options may fail to retain in game on clone or Eyefinity display setups.
– Performance metrics overlay feature may scale incorrectly when changing resolution in game.
– Screen tearing may be observed with Enhanced Sync enabled on Vulkan API games.
– Some systems running multiple displays may experience mouse lag when at least one display is enabled but powered off.
– Upgrade Advisor may intermittently fail to detect games and provide compatibility recommendations.

OpenGL support

Nothing particular here, still OpenGL 4.6 like previous Adrenalin drivers.

- GL_VENDOR: ATI Technologies Inc.
- GL_RENDERER: Radeon RX Vega
- GL_VERSION: 4.6.13544 Compatibility Profile Context 25.20.15011.1004
- OpenGL Extensions: 323 extensions (GL=299 and WGL=24)

All OpenGL extensions are available HERE.

 

Vulkan support

This new version of Adrenalin brings the support of Vulkan 1.1.96. But this support looks like a bit incomplete. For example, the VK_EXT_pci_bus_info added in Vulkan 1.1.88 is not exposed in this driver for a Radeon RX Vega 56.

Here is the report from upcoming GPU Shark 2:

- name: Radeon RX Vega
- device type: VK_PHYSICAL_DEVICE_TYPE_DISCRETE_GPU
- device ID: 1002-687F
- API version: 1.1.96
