AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.6.2 Released (Vulkan 1.2.178, DOOM Eternal Ray Tracing Update)


AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin Graphics Driver

 
AMD has published a new graphics driver for Radeon-based graphics cards on Windows 10 for the Vulkan ray tracing update of DOOM Eternal (see here). Adrenalin 21.6.2 brings the following changes and fixes:

Support For
DOOM Eternal next-gen update – Vulkan Ray Tracing

Added Vulkan Support
– VK_EXT_custom_border_color: This extension allows applications to specify a custom border color for when the sampler address mode VK_SAMPLER_ADDRESS_MODE_CLAMP_TO_BORDER is used.
– VK_KHR_shader_subgroup_uniform_control_flow: This extension exposes the availability of the SPV_KHR_subgroup_uniform_control_flow SPIR-V extension for shader modules use. The SPIR-V extension provides stronger guarantees that diverged subgroups will reconverge.
– VK_EXT_color_write_enable: This extension allows applications to selectively enable and disable writes to output color attachments via a pipeline dynamic state. This has the potential to reduce pipeline counts for increased efficiency.

Fixed Issues
– While playing MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries on DirectX 11, visual artifacts may be observed on some AMD Radeon graphics products such as Radeon RX 6000 series graphics products.
– An error message – Error 184 – may be received after running the AMD Auto-Detect and Install Updates utility program on Windows 7 based systems.
– Adobe Substance 3D Painter may freeze while running this application on some AMD Radeon graphics products such as Radeon RX 6900.

Like previous 21.6.1, this driver removes the support of all Radeon R9 (Fury/Nano/300/200), Radeon R7 (300/200), Radeon R5 (300/200), Radeon HD 8500/8900 and Radeon HD 7700/7900 graphics cards.
