The PC gaming landscape might be a bit quiet at this time of year, but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of amazing titles worthy of your time. From brand new entries to those older hits that never stop being fun, here are the best PC games you should be playing.
The latest Radeon Adrenalin Hotfix adds support for A Way Out, Sea of Thieves and Vulkan 1.1, but also fixes an intermittent stutter in Forza Motorsport 7. Gameplay in Final Fantasy XV and Star Wars Battlefront 2 has also been improved.
This new AMD hotfix further improves performance for Final Fantasy XV compared to previous releases, particularly on Vega 64 and Radeon RX 580 models (and derivatives). Minor stutters on particle effects in FFXV have also been fixed.
The latest Radeon Adrenalin hotfix driver is out with performance optimizations for Final Fantasy XV, Warhammer: Vermintide II and DOTA 2. In DOTA 2 they promise a 6% gain if you're using a Radeon RX 580. This is part of new eSports title optimizations (Overwatch, PUBG) that includes other metrics such as 99th percentile frame times.
As one can expect, Nvidia has released a new set of GeForce drivers (version 391.01) that promise the optimal gaming experience for Final Fantasy XV, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Warhammer: Vermintide 2, and World of Tanks 1.0.
Today we're checking out Final Fantasy XV CPU performance using the new standalone benchmark released ahead of next month's PC launch. The reason we want to look at CPU performance first is because the game is extremely CPU intensive, far more so than we were expecting.
Let’s get this out of the way: Final Fantasy XV is a great video game. It steers the series in a promising new direction, reveals a spectacular new world, and introduces a combat system as satisfying as any I’ve played. For all of its warts and wrinkles—and there are quite a few warts and wrinkles—Final Fantasy XV is often a thing of beauty.
