AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.12.1 optimized for Cyberpunk 2077

AMD Radeon RX 6800 Series

AMD has just dropped the new drivers for its mainline GPUs to increase support for the new CDPR RPG. The new AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.12.1 drivers are all about the new game. A few minor bugs have been fixed as well. The new RX 6900 GPUs also got some attention.

The new driver also fixes some display issues on the new GPU for 16:9 resolution as well. Players of other games like Rainbow Six Siege will notice better performance and some minor fixes when running the Vulkan API. Finally, there are some fixes for data corruption as well.

And for the sake of completeness, check out some of our Cyberpunk 2077 guides while you’re here. You still have a few hours to pre-load the game, so why not spend that time reading up on what’s coming. You can also head over and check out NVIDIA’s offering if you have an NVIDIA GPU. Whatever version you’re on, make sure you’re patched up now to get day one going as well as it can.

You can download this new driver from AMDs site.
