Fixed Issues:

  • Fan Tuning option may be missing on some AMD Graphics Products such as the Radeon™ RX 590.

Where Can I Get My Update?

As always, if you already have the Radeon Adrenalin app installed on your PC (which you certainly should if you utilise one of their graphics cards), then a quick check of it should now prompt you to download and update to this latest 22.6.1 driver release. However, if that doesn’t work, you can learn more and/or manually download it via the link here! – As noted above though, if F1 2022 is on your agenda, this one seems well worth checking out!
