    The enthusiasm for this driver is deafening. Guess I will skip it

    There isn't much to it and the main thread is a bit further down I believe, it optimizes performance in Assassin's Creed Odyssey (~5% or so.) and has something for Forza Horizon 4 (No performance data provided, guessing it's well optimized as is and earlier drivers already contained the profile for the game.) as for comparing the other contents well yeah there's a DXX profile for Odyssey so I assume it'll be DX11 again and won't utilize DX12 although there is no Crossfire flag for the game but Origins wasn't very pro-multi GPU either as I recall. Besides that some changes to OpenGL but probably more for Linux users than Windows and the matching drivers for this system and there was a Crossfire profile for F1 2018 but it's deleted now in 18.9.3
    (Either it was faulty or DX12 is what Codemasters is going for and they're handling it on their own.)

    Resolves some of the known issues at least so that's good but more of a game driver for Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Forza Horizon 4 really.
    (No newer Vulkan runtime and I don't believe Catalyst Next has changed much either nor extras such as Radeon Overlay /ReLive and such.)

    I've noticed that I cannot bring up the OSD in Forza 7, a UWP game. Can anyone else check to see if you can get Radeon's OSD up while in Forza 7?

    18.Q3.1 is out for the Pro series cards including Vega Frontier for anyone using that GPU. These aren't 18.10.1 or anything but there's a newer driver out now for cards running on this branch. :)
    (Which would mainly be the Vega Frontier card I suppose for home users.)

    I really wish AMD would sort out the HDCP disabled when running an HDMI cable to a TV. I have had this for quite a while now.

    Three are much better than the 18.9.2 drivers for my 480

    I wonder what changed (apart from the WHQL certification) maybe @JonasBeckman could elaborate? :p

    Pretty sure it's just WHQL certified although I haven't looked into the new version much, hoping for 18.10.1 perhaps tomorrow although who knows when the next release will be available. :)

    Also noticed the Vulkan runtime was updated from 1.1.82.1 to 1.1.85.0 when I checked earlier today.
    https://vulkan.lunarg.com/sdk/home#windows
    https://vulkan.lunarg.com/doc/sdk/1.1.85.0/windows/release_notes.html

    AMD is still on 1.1.77.0 but these are backwards compatible with earlier drivers as long as they support Vulkan 1.1 though you only get bug fixes and general changes to the runtime files and the extensions and what not will need compatible drivers.
    (And then also games utilizing this version of the Vulkan SDK which I guess will be most anything using RTX on NVIDIA via Vulkan now that his version brings support for these NVIDIA extensions to the API.)


    EDIT: Yeah just the packaging being different so it's the same driver but with WHQL signatures.

    18.9.3 September 26th. (Released September 28th I think it was.)
    ReleaseVersion,,"18.30.19.01-180925a-333764E-RadeonSoftwareAdrenalin"

    18.9.3 October 4th. (Released on October 8th.)
    ReleaseVersion,,"18.30.19.01-180925a-334122C-RadeonSoftwareAdrenalin"

    Although in the INF file these two were also added so for Vega M it looks like this now for supported GPU's.
    AMD694C.3 = "Radeon RX Vega M GH Graphics"
    AMD694E.2 = "Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics"

    AMD694C.1 = "Radeon RX Vega M GH Graphics - Unlocked"
    AMD694C.2 = "Radeon RX Vega M GH Graphics"
    AMD694C.3 = "Radeon RX Vega M GH Graphics"
    AMD694E.1 = "Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics"
    AMD694E.2 = "Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics"

    I thought that got pulled by Microsoft. Is it back up and running and did they fix the missing folders.

    NP, on my side.
    All My Documents with Saves etc. are in place.

    To Update my 1.803 to 1.809 i've used Upgrade Tools from MS Site.
    But some steps are needed after Install:
    Reinstall some software e.g. Input Mapper for PS4 DS4 needed InputMapper_HidGuardian reinstall.
    Also i've reistalled SB-Z drivers.... and aplied Tweaks again ;)
