There is no doubt that post-apocalyptic games with a post-nuclear theme have their audience. To classics like the Fallot, Metro or Stalker sagas, now a new contender has been added under the name of Chernobylite, a game that is also based on the same theme, but differs from the rest by taking the perspective of Survival Horror and is based on an ultra-realistic recreation of the Chernobyl excluded zone.


It is a game that is not a Survival Horror to use, totally linear, as it allows free exploration and has RPG elements. So it is the closest thing to a Fallout in the middle of Chernobyl. But, if there is something that stands out is its visual quality and it is normal that AMD wanted to optimize its latest graphics driver, the Adrenalin 21.7.2, to get the maximum performance possible to Chernobylite, both with AMD Radeon graphics cards and integrated GPUs within their AMD Ryzen APUs.

AMD Adrenalin 21.7.2 Driver Issues Fixed

The update of a driver is not limited to only give support to the latest games, but to solve problems that occur because of old versions of the driver and one of the most talked about has been that these cause blue screens or crashes. This problem and not the optimization for Chernobylite is the reason why AMD has released this new driver.

The blue screen of death problem occurred after installing the latest Adrenalin drivers and only in the case that we had a core configured as an isolated core from the rest, which allows it to operate in a safe environment. So AMD has had to release the Adrenalin 21.7.2 drivers to fix it. The blue or black screen, depending on the Windows version, also happened in laptops with the Enhaced Sign-in. So AMD recommends disabling it for the time being if we encounter the problem again.

Another problem is in the functioning of the Game Compatibility advisor in the AMD Radeon Software, where the information it gives about whether certain games reach the minimum to play decently is erroneous. AMD has fixed this problem in the new version of the game. As well as the crashes and problems in Resident Evil Village when playing with a Radeon VII.

There are still problems to be fixed

AMD has some work to do for the next version of their drivers, which we expect for the release of the AMD RX 6600 (XT) based on their Navi 23 GPU. The problems AMD has acknowledged that they plan to fix are as follows:

  • There are ofstiempo between playing a game and streaming a game on the Radeon RX 500.
  • Users have problems logging out of the Open Broadcaster Software if HEVC codec is used for streaming on the AMD RX 6800 and similar.
  • If you are playing Player Unknown ‘s Battlegrounds with multiple displays the AMD Radeon Software crashes.
  • Interested in playing Horizon Zero Dawn? The game crashes after many hours of gameplay.
  • Enhaced Sync can cause games to display completely black in some games. AMD recommends disabling this feature for the time being.
  • If we connect two displays with different resolution and/or refresh rates and use an AMD Vega, annoying flickering will occur.
  • The performance metrics of the Radeon software can intermittently give wrong values for the memory clock speed.

We expect AMD to fix these issues in future iterations of their graphics drivers.
