Microsoft is expected to begin rolling out Windows 10 May 2019 Update to compatible devices in a week or two. To prepare their devices for Microsoft’s new update, GPU and CPU manufacturers are rolling out new compatible drivers.
After Intel and Nvidia, AMD has now also released new graphics drivers that add support for Windows 10 May 2019 Update. AMD Radeon 19.5.1 driver is what you should install if you’re planning to upgrade your AMD PC to Windows 10 version 1903.
In the release notes, AMD says Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition also adds support for RAGE 2 and instruction tracing for Radeon GPU Profiler 1.5.X. The update also includes tons of bug fixes and improvements.
A bug where the performance metrics overlay may experience intermittent flicker has been addressed. This problem was experienced when the user played protected content with this feature enabled.
AMD is also addressing a bug that causes DOOM to hang during launch on AMD XConnect Technology system configurations.
Another bug has been addressed where the Radeon software installation doesn’t work or get stuck at 33% if you install it on AMD Radeon HD 7970 system configurations.
Radeon RX Vega series graphics products may experience higher than expected memory clocks at idle or desktop with multi-display system configurations.
Stuttering or frame drop issues where playing DivX interlaced content in the Movies & TV app has been also fixed. The update also addresses the intermittent authentication issues and an update of the AMD Link application is also required.
