    Fixed Issues
    • Fortnite™ may experience an application crash on game launch in Windows®7.
    • Some games may experience a game crash or hang on multi GPU system configurations when changing or applying resolutions.
    • Graphics and memory clock speeds may remain elevated or locked while gaming if video content is also playing on the system.
    • Civilization® VI may experience a game crash using DirectX®12 API on game or map launch.
    • Samsung™ HMD Odyssey may experience intermittent black screens or flashing on Radeon RX Vega series graphics products.
    Known Issues
    • Cursor or system lag may be observed on some system configurations when two or more displays are connected and one display is powered off.
    • Some games may experience instability or stutter when playing with FRTC and Instant Replay enabled.
    • Toggling performance metrics while gaming on a non-native display resolution may cause the game to scale incorrectly.
    • Radeon WattMan memory and frequency sliders may not list correct minimum values.
    • Upgrade Advisor may fail to show up in Radeon Settings.
    • Radeon FreeSync may fail to enable when playing Monster Hunter™: World.
    • Video profiles may not correctly apply on web browser video content.
    Added Vulkan™ Extension Support
    • VK_EXT_descriptor_indexing
      • This extension adds several small features which together enable applications to create large descriptor sets containing substantially all of their resources and selecting amongst those resources with dynamic (non-uniform) indexes in the shader.
    • VK_KHR_get_display_properties2
      • This extension provides new entry points to query device display properties and capabilities in a way that can be easily extended by other extensions, without introducing any further entry points.
    • VK_KHR_8bit_storage
      • This extension allows use of 8-bit types in uniform and storage buffers and push constant blocks.
    • VK_KHR_draw_indirect_count
      • This extension allows an application to source the number of draw calls for indirect draw calls from a buffer.
    • VK_KHR_create_renderpass2
      • This extension provides a new entry point to create render passes in a way that can be easily extended by other extensions through the substructures of render pass creation.
    • EXT_vertex_attribute_divisor
      • This extension allows instance-rate vertex attributes to be repeated for certain number of instances instead of advancing for every instance when instanced rendering is enabled.
    Footnotes
    • (1) Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of August 3rd, 2018 on the 8GB Radeon RX Vega 64 on a test system comprising of Intel i7 7700X CPU (4.2 GHz), 16GB DDR4-3000 Mhz system memory, and Windows 10 x64. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. With highest preset settings on Monster Hunter World at 1080p, the Radeon RX Vega 64 scored 90.9 FPS with Radeon Software 18.6.1, whereas the Radeon RX Vega 64 scored 95.2 FPS with Radeon Software 18.8.1. Comparing FPS between software versions, Radeon Software 18.8.1 has 5% faster performance in Monster Hunter World. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers.
