Last week, AMD released an update to its Radeon Adrenalin Software to 22.10.2. There is no additional game support included with this patch; however, it does fix several bugs, such as driver timeouts, video stuttering, and dropped frame rates. Most of the issues seem to deal with the 6000 series GPUs, but other series may benefit from this update too.
