AMD will release a new driver for Radeon RX 6000 and older graphics cards within the next two weeks. This was announced by the company’s chief architect for gaming solutions Frank Azor (Frank Azor) on Twitter.
Since the release of the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT graphics cards, AMD has already released three exclusive graphics drivers for them since November last year. At the same time, the manufacturer “forgot” about the owners of graphics cards Radeon RX 6000 and older generations and has not released new driver versions for them for almost two months since the last release.
Azor was asked on Twitter if AMD plans to release a generic graphics driver for RDNA 3 (Radeon RX 7000) and RDNA 2 (Radeon RX 6000) graphics cards. According to Azor, AMD is committed to maintaining its unified driver strategy.
“We are working on new drivers for the 6000 series and older graphics cards. We plan to release within the next two weeks. I’ll share more information closer to release if there are any issues. Thanks for your patience”— commented Azores
He never explained why Radeon RX 6000 and older graphics cards had not received software updates for two months. And this takes into account the fact that the company recently boasted of a stable and frequent schedule of releasing drivers for its video cards. In 2021, the manufacturer released more graphics driver updates than NVIDIA.
Currently, the latest AMD graphics driver supporting Radeon RX 6000 and higher graphics cards is Radeon Software: Adrenalin Edition 22.11.2.
