Hot on the footsteps of Nvidia, AMD has its own graphics card driver prepped for today’s launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and The Outer Worlds. AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.10.2 provides up to date performance tweaks and enhancements for this week’s two biggest releases, as well as the Early Access launch of the STALKER-like Chernobylite.
AMD has provided a few specifics on the performance enhancements, claiming a AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB will benefit from 18% higher frame rates in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with this latest Adrenalin driver update. These benchmarks were taking at 1080p Ultra, providing an average frame rate of 125.9 FPS with 19.10.1 versus 107 FPS with 19.10.1.
The gains aren’t quite as large for The Outer Worlds but Radeon RX 5700 XT owners will still gain 8% while playing at Very High / 1440p resolution. Frame rates increase from 50.8 FPS to 54.8 FPS.
