Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.4.3 Highlights

 Support For
  • Mortal Kombat XI™
Fixed Issues
  • With AMD Link connected to Radeon Settings the update notifications feature may list incorrect installed versions.

2
 
  • Added support for the following GPU:
    • GeForce GTX 1650
       GeForce GTX 1650 with Max-Q Design
       GeForce GTX 1660 Ti with Max-Q Design
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the display to be driven at a low
     resolution when configuring PRIME display offloading with
     nvidia-xconfig --prime`.
  • Added HEVC YUV 4:4:4 decode support to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver.
  • Added the new per-decoder profile capability bit
     VDP_DECODER_PROFILE_SUPPORTED_CHROMA_TYPES to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver.
  • Added new VdpYCbCrFormats VDP_YCBCR_FORMAT_Y_UV_444 and
     VDP_YCBCR_FORMAT_Y_U_V_444 for accessing YUV 4:4:4 surfaces via
     VdpVideoSurfaceGetBitsYCbCr() and VdpVideoSurfacePutBitsYCbCr()
     in the NVIDIA VDPAU driver.
  • Added support for creation of YUV 4:4:4 video surfaces in the NVIDIA VDPAU driver.
  • Raised the minimum supported X.Org xserver version to 1.7 (video driver ABI version 6).
  • Updated the NVIDIA VDPAU driver to support allocating VDPAU video surfaces with explicit field or frame picture structure.
  • Added support for the GL_NV_vdpau_interop2 OpenGL extension, which allows VDPAU/OpenGL surface sharing with explicit field or frame picture structure. Picture structure selection by applications can avoid the need for implicit surface structure conversion by the OpenGL implementation.
  • Updated nvidia-installer for better compatibility with ncurses when libncurses.so.6 exposes the ncurses reentrant ABI, such as on openSUSE Leap 15 and SUSE Linux Enterprise 15.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update launch driver

This launch driver is WDDM 2.6 compliant and ready for the Windows 10 May 2019 update. It introduces support for the new DirectX 12 Shader Model 6.4 compiler on 7th Generation Intel Core processors or higher (Intel HD Graphics 610 or higher).

This driver is provided with the early access release of the brand-new Intel Graphics Command Center.

The Intel Graphics Command Center (iGCC) is a software interface that provides consumers a modern design to optimize their visual experience – built on community feedback, and designed for simplicity and ease of use:

· IGCC scans for installed games to provide 1-click optimization of in-game settings based on the user’s hardware, and the ability to create custom game profiles to directly tune individual game settings.

· Additionally, IGCC helps consumers understand graphics settings with simple explanations and before-and-after images to recognize how each setting will tax their hardware.

Be sure to check out gameplay.intel.com, where you’ll find recommended game settings for many more of your favorite PC games.

I just tried GPU_Caps_Viewer_1.42.0.0 in both Windows editions, zip and installer. Same on both: a small splash screen and then the app dies.
Check "_log.txt" in program folder.
