AMD finally released its Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.4.1. This minor update includes many bugfixes especially focused on gaming. AMD also brought the beta level support for Windows 10 April 2018 especially for its “Radeon Pro Software”. Therefore, it will be apt to say to update right now with the new “Radeon Pro Software Adrenalin Edition 18.4.1.”
Here, the important point is as follows: This update of 18.4.1 isn’t relevant to the both the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G. For whom initial WHQL Radeon Software for Ryzen Desktop Processors with Radeon “Vega Graphics” still provides the latest listed drivers. Needless to say, this clearly indicates that the two new Ryzen APUs aren’t supported under this April 2018 Update. Whereas, the Microsoft’s “WSUS” oriented Update Catalog does list drivers for Vega 6 and 8 graphics from its mid-April Windows.
