AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 18.10.1 Beta

AMD has released the Radeon Software Adrenalin 18.10.1 beta drivers. These drivers include support for Microsoft's Windows 10 October 2018 Update as well as optimizations for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Along with improved support, AMD has addressed a number of issues with this latest release. First of which is a fix for the HDMI audio drivers not upgrading during the Radeon Software installation in some circumstances. Random reboots when upgrading from Radeon Software versions older than RSAE 18.8.1 on CPUs with more than 16 cores has also been resolved. In regards to gaming fixes, Fortnite sees lighting corruption when effects quality is set to High or Epic resolved, while Sea of Thieves sees texture flickering in multi-GPU configurations fixed. You can grab the drivers from the link below.

That driver descends from a newer branch of our driver source than existing Adrenalin Edition drivers, with changes that break compatibility with Radeon GPU Profiler and all earlier releases.
Please grab 1.3.1 ahead of that driver coming out, so that RGP will continue to work seamlessly when the driver is released and you upgrade.

This might or might not affect other GPU tools as well.

Does it fix high voltage on hardware decoding 4K videos on RX 4xx and 5xx series?

It fix the lower performance I was getting in Overwatch on win build 1809. The gpu didn't utilized more then 65% before.
