AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 22.8.1 Released (Vulkan 1.3.217, OpenGL Bugs Fixed) – Updated: v22.9.2


AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin Graphics Driver

 
AMD has published a new version of its graphics driver for Radeon graphics cards. Here is the main changes:

Highlights
– Support for:
– Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered
– Thymesia
– Radeon Boost using Variable Rate Shading for Halo Infinite

– Enhanced Sync improvements have been introduced in the latest version of AMD Software to provide further stability, and a better overall experience with your AMD PC.

Fixed Issues
– Display may flicker black when switching between video playback and gameplay windows on some AMD Graphics Products such as the Radeon RX 6700 XT.
– Video output will freeze in Project Zomboid.
– Games based on LOVE2D engine may be rendered incorrectly.
– Stormworks: Build and Rescue™ crashes during start up.
– Mixed Reality Headsets may flicker black or experience jitter during movement with some AMD Graphics Products such as the Radeon RX 6800 XT Graphics.
– Enhanced Sync may cause a system crash during gameplay with video playback on extended monitors.

 
In Adrenalin 22.8.1, AMD has fixed many small OpenGL bugs they introduced in Adrenalin 22.7.1. LOVE2D is an OpenGL 2D game engine and I bet that the bug fixed were similar to the ones I talked HERE. With Adrenalin 22.8.1, old versions of Kombustor work now fine!
