New AMD Radeon Adrenalin 19.3.2 Driver adds DX12 Support for Win7; Is Optimized for The Division 2
AMD has released its AMD Radeon Adrenalin 19.3.2 driver which adds support for DX12 in Windows 7 and offers optimizations for The Division 2.
Earlier this week, Microsoft announced that it has worked hard to offer support for its DX12 API in Windows 7. Blizzard’s World of Warcraft is the first game that allows Windows 7 users to use the API, and Microsoft has stated that its likely that more titles will support DX12 in Windows 7.
AMD’s new driver set now officially adds support for DX12 in Microsoft’s older Windows version.
As said, the 19.3.2 driver also offers optimizations for The Division 2, which is being released today. In addition, the new driver also offers performance gains in Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Gathering Storm for those using a AMD Radeon VII GPU.
We’ve included AMD’s official release notes down below:
