AMD ReLive 17.10.2 driver offers 50% faster performance in Destiny 2

ReLive 17.10.2 driver for Destiny 2

AMD has released a new graphics driver, the Software Crimson ReLive 17.10.2. The driver offers some noteworthy performance gains for Radeon RX 580 and RX Vega 56 cards in the latest AAA games, including Destiny 2, Assassin’s Creed: Origins and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus.

According to the release notes, those running an RX Vega 56 (8GB) will see up to 43% faster performance in Destiny 2 compared to the previous ReLive Edition 17.10.1 at 2560×1440. That boost is even bigger on RX 580 (8GB) GPU, which will benefit from up to 50% faster performance at the same resolution.

The performance for Wolfenstein 2 and Assassin’s Creed: Origins has also been improved, though the increase is not as big as Destiny 2. Both these titles are scheduled to release later this week.

Furthermore, the ReLive 17.10.2 driver provides initial support for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. It also supports compute workloads for up to a dozen Radeons on Windows 10 system configurations.

The release notes for the 17.10.2 driver are given below:
