    Radeon™ Software Adrenalin Edition 18.2.1 Release Notes
    Article Number: RN-WIN-RADEONADRENALIN-18.2.1
    Introducing Radeon™ Software Adrenalin Edition, artfully designed and meticulously crafted to unleash the powerful performance and innovation built into Radeon™ Graphics through an incredibly intuitive and utterly beautiful user interface for both PCs and mobile devices.

    Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.2.1 Highlights

    Support For

    • Final Fantasy® 12: The Zodiac Age
    Resolved Issues

    • Radeon FreeSync may rapidly change between min and max range when enabled causing stutter in fullscreen games on single display system configurations.
    • Sid Meier's Civilization® V may fail to launch on Hybrid Graphics system configurations when using DirectX®9 API.
    • Radeon FreeSync may exhibit a black screen on some games when using Samsung™ CF791 displays.
    • Radeon Chill game settings profiles may fail to enable on Vulkan™ API games.
    • Radeon Overlay may fail to open in some Vulkan™ API games.
    • Need for Speed™ Payback may exhibit corruption on some terrain.
    • Textures in Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth3 V Generation™ may appear corrupted or exhibit flickering colours.
    Known Issues

    • Radeon FreeSync may intermittently incorrectly engage during Chrome video playback resulting in playback flicker.
    • Radeon Overlay hotkey may fail to bring up the overlay or may cause a Radeon Host Application crash intermittently on a limited number of gaming titles.
    • Radeon FreeSync may rapidly change between min and max range when enabled causing stutter in fullscreen games on multi display system configurations.
    • Flickering may be observed on the performance metrics overlay when Enhanced Sync is enabled on some Radeon FreeSync connected displays.
    • A random system hang may be experienced after extended periods of use on system configurations using 12 GPU's for compute workloads.

    Nice, probably tomorrow would be my guess too but it could be a later night (Local time for here in Sweden.) release too since it's already partially online though restricted. :)

    IMO it will hit us Tonight, with some Bugs squashed.
    but i will stay on 17.9.3 + Vulcan from 18.1.1 ;)
    All in all i don't have any issues with this driver.
    I will try to Mod them some more in time, THX goes to Romulus_ut3 (yeah You MF :D) for keepin' Repository updated.

    Also we have Chill for any game even with 17.9.3 (but you need to install 18.1.1 first)
    The File is the same (but i need to adjust settings manually by Notepad++)

    JonasBeckman Give Us comparison :D
    What Games profiles are Updated etc. I will know if it's worth to Install 18.2.1 then Revert to my 17.9.3 ;) (IMO SW BF2 is not fixed yet)

    I just noticed this had been released, installed them and did the usual setting up and cleaning out the previous driver files. :)

    So from the INF file we have:

    Driver is dated January 31st compared to January 12th for 18.1.1
    Driver version 23.20.15017.3010 compared to 23.20.15015.1002

    The [Manufacturer] line was incremented with a .1, not entirely sure what's that about.
    IE instead of NTamd64.10.0, it's NTamd64.10.0.1,

    Which also shows for the other categories in the INF such as instead of [ATI.Mfg.NTamd64.10.0] it's [ATI.Mfg.NTamd64.10.0.1]

    Also appears to be WHQL and signed by both AMD and Microsoft so all the mobile GPU entries are back in the INF again compared to AMD's beta driver releases.

    There's a couple of settings added for some of these GPU's too.

    [ati2mtag_Topaz_SoftwareDeviceSettings]
    HKR,, EnableAspmL1, %REG_DWORD%, 0
    HKR,, EnableAspmL0s, %REG_DWORD%, 0

    [ati2mtag_Polaris11_SoftwareDeviceSettings]
    HKR,,BDFFCC9810EFE6EFFD3E, %REG_BINARY%,62,2A,06,E0 (There were a few like this already, not really certain what this does due to it's name being indecipherable.)

    [ati2mtag_Polaris10_SoftwareDeviceSettings]
    HKR,,BDE8DC9820EFD7EFFD18, %REG_BINARY%,62,3D,06,E3
    HKR,,BDE8DD9820EFD7EFFD10, %REG_BINARY%,62,37,06,E2

    [ati2mtag_RemoveDeviceSettings]
    HKR,, DalFeatureForceLidOpen

    [Strings]
    AMD6863.1 = "Radeon Vega Frontier Edition" <- This is gone in this driver, no longer installs on Frontier GPU's as a result?

    Since there's so many variations of mobile GPU models it looks like there's been a lot of adjustments but as mentioned these entries are usually gone from AMD's beta driver releases and present in the full WHQL sets.



    And then the Atiapfxx.blb file. :)

    Crossfire profile changes:

    Endless Enemies
    Sea of Thieves


    These two were updated.

    DXX profile changes:

    Autodesk Inventor
    Autodesk 3DSMax
    Fortnite


    These three were updated.

    Fallout4VR
    Final Fantasy 12 Zodiac Age


    These two were added.


    PXDynamic and HighPerfGPUAffinity:

    Assassin's Creed Origins
    Far Cry 5
    Final Fantasy 12 Zodiac Age


    These three were added, Far Cry 5 also has a listing for Crossfire. (Which I think a previous comparison showed Far Cry 5 having a crossfire profile already.)


    Other changes?

    Assassin's Creed Origins DXX profile now also encompasses DiscoveryTourAncientEgypt.exe for the tour mode coming later this month.

    From Reddit about the 100% GPU bug that someone mentioned.

    AMD_Kyle RTG Engineer - 5 hours ago:

    Hey just to let you know we do know about this issue - and it turns out to be pretty complex to resolve.

    As a workaround for now you can kill the AMDDVR process which should return the GPU utilization to the correct levels.

    I had the impression that this happened because I have a secondary 60Hz monitor and Windows 10 was messing up with the primary freesync monitor somehow since AMD never listed it as a known issue. Hopefully it is also fixed when playing videos in browser since it's where it sometimes happens for me.

    first time problem ever, these drivers don't allow me to create usual Eyefinity setup.

    My monitors start flickering like crazy then system hangs until it's atikmpag BSOD.
    Already tried the usual DDU procedure but no go : (

    Coming back from sleep mode still causes a crash.
