Brings several game improvements and fixes

AMD has released its latest Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.3.1 driver which brings performance improvements and optimizations for several games, bug fixes and  completely new Radeon eSports Experience optimizations.

According to the release notes, the new Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.3.1 driver brings support for the upcoming Final Fantasy XV and Warhammer: Vermintide II games as well as new performance improvements for DOTA 2 game, with a performance boost of up to six percent on RX 580 at 4K resolution.

The DOTA 2 performance optimizations are a part of AMD's Project ReSX, or Project Radeon eSports Experience, a specific project that should improve the performance or rather bring "faster, fluid and more responsive" gaming in some popular eSports titles. What AMD is trying to do is both provide higher frame rates, better 99th percentile frame time improvements and better latency, or "click-to-response" improvements.

According to the slide provided by AMD, there are certain performance improvements in titles like PUBG, Overwatch and DOTA 2, but hopefully, more titles will be included soon.
