AMD to fix DX 9 support bugs in future releases
A great many gamers discovered over the last couple of months that the newest AMD driver releases caused issues in games using DirectX 9. AMD quickly responded, and gamers didn’t like what they heard. The newest Adrrenalin drivers from AMD seemed to be conflicting with the older code used in DX 9 and causing a variety of issues.
A post from AMD in response to concerns read, “This title is from 2007, so we are unlikely to devote any valuable engineering resources to this issue, which is most likely caused by outdated API modules.”
This sounded like bad news for games still enjoying games such as The Witcher, Red Alert 3, Skyrim, PES 2017, and even Tales of Berseria. As more users reported issues, a list of games affected was compiled. There isn’t a huge number of games affected, but many users enjoy these and other older titles. So AMD showing some good will and fixing this issues is a great thing.
Today, AMD backtracked on the initial comment from a few days ago and have now said they are working on a hotfix to fix the bugs.
