AMD has just released new Radeon drivers that include support for DirectX 12 games on Windows 7.

 

Version 19.3.2 comes with several improvements, like support for new games, including here Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 and Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Gathering Storm.

But the top highlight in this release is the support for DirectX 12 on Windows 7.

“AMD is thrilled to help expand DirectX 12 adoption across a broader range of Windows operating systems with Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 18.12.2 and onward, which enables consumers to experience exceptional levels of detail and performance in their games,” AMD explains in the release notes of this new driver.

Microsoft announced earlier this month that it’d bring DirectX 12 support on Windows 7 in an attempt to provide gamers here with the same benefits as Windows 10. And while DirectX 12 can be considered just another reason to hold back from upgrading to Windows 10, the support for Windows 7 will end in January 2020, so switching to a newer release should be on the agenda for every user.Known issues in this releaseNeedless to say, the new Radeon drivers also include plenty of fixes and several known issues, and you can check out the full changelog in the box after the jump

One particular bug, however, is worth highlighting because it causes the mouse cursor to disappear from the screen under certain circumstances.

“Mouse cursors may disappear or move out of the boundary of the top of a display on AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors with Radeon Vega Graphics,” AMD explains.
