AMD Adrenalin 19.6.2 Brings Vulkan 1.1.108 and New Extensions




AMD Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.6.2

 
AMD has released a new set of graphics drivers for Windows 10 and Windows 7/8 users. Adrenalin 19.6.2 seems to be a Vulkan-focused update:

Vulkan 1.1.108
– 5 new Vulkan device extensions:

VK_EXT_host_query_reset
Allows resets of queries from the host, rather than on the GPU.

VK_EXT_full_screen_exclusive
Gives applications explicit control over exclusive full-screen modes (this is for instance useful for HDR support).

VK_AMD_display_native_hdr
Exposes FreeSync2 capabilities for improved HDR support.

VK_EXT_separate_stencil_usage
Separates the usage flags for depth/stencil aspects of a depth/stencil image making it possible to restrict/expand the
usage relative to the depth aspect.

VK_KHR_uniform_buffer_standard_layout
Provides more flexible alignment for uniform buffers, enabling among other things, the usage of std430 layouts in
Vulkan.

 
The following issues have been fixed:

– Wireless VR may experience performance drops across multiple game titles on some Radeon RX 400 and Radeon RX 500 series graphics products.
– Performance Metrics Overlay may fail to enable or may be disabled when toggling Radeon Overlay while in game.
– A TDR may occur when exiting some gaming applications that are using DirectX®12 API when multiple displays are connected and in clone mode.
– Microsoft PIX tool may fail when a GPU is connected using AMD XConnect Technology.
– Crackdown 3 may experience an application or game hang on Radeon R7 370 series graphics products.
