Just in time for the release of Bethesda's open-world first-person shooter Rage 2 (find our performance analysis here), AMD has released their latest installment of the Radeon Adrenalin 2019 edition drivers for their graphics cards to make the most of the game. Indeed, AMD claims an improvement in game performance of up to 16% on the Radeon VII relative to last month's 19.4.3 drivers, and this is in addition to added support for the big Windows 10 May 2019 update and instruction tracing for AMD's GPU Profiler version 1.5.X. There is a plethora of fixed issues listed as well, and the usual list of known bugs, all of which can be seen past the break. We have also hosted the drivers installer for your convenience, which can be found at the link below.

Stability is now pretty good actually with Radeon VII, even on april windows 10 (still haven't found a way to actually switch off automatic updates).

AMD has recently begun to pay more attention to drivers, and this is good news for me. :D

Please note that the Radeon GPU stops supporting the Mantle API starting from version 19.5.1. :(

Mantle API now officially died. o_O

Sad thing but only 3 games used it and they are old now (BF4, CivBE, Dragon Age Inquisition). Vulkan and DX12 are its spiritual successor and nore games use them by the month now.

It's hard for me to disagree, but there are a few features as you know.
Vulkan is much better than DirectX 12 because:

1) It is cross-platform and can be used in Linux and Windows 7 (Windows 10 is an extremely unstable system with a huge number of bugs and I would gladly switch back to Windows 7 if it supported Raven Ridge).

2) It is open source software and the Radeon GPUs works better with it.

3) Unfortunately, there are very few games on the above-mentioned APIs (mostly on Vulkan) and they go out at such a pace that enthusiasts will do something faster than the developers of large companies: for example, vkDOOM3 port. Although this fan mod became possible only due to the capabilities of the id Tech 4 game engine.
