Just days after NVIDIA released its latest GeForce Game Ready driver for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, it's AMD's turn to flex its software muscle with the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 19.10.2. For those that are hip to installing the latest drivers for their hardware as soon as it's released, this latest driver update comes with some big upsides.

For starters, AMD is advertising up to an 18 percent gain in performance in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with these drivers. However, AMD stipulates that this performance uplift is with the enthusiast-class Radeon RX 5700 XT. Not be left out, like the NVIDIA Game Ready driver released earlier this week, the new AMD driver update brings enhancements for The Outer Worlds. Namely, AMD is quoting an 8 percent performance boost with the Radeon RX 5700 XT.
