AMD has released the Radeon Software Adrenalin 18.10.1 Beta drivers. These drivers include support for Microsoft’s Windows 10 October 2018 Update as well as optimizations for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Random reboots when upgrading from Radeon Software versions older than RSAE 18.8.1 on CPUs with more than 16 cores has also been resolved. In regards to gaming fixes, Fortnite sees lighting corruption when effects quality is set to High or Epic resolved, while Sea of Thieves sees texture flickering in multi-GPU configurations fixed. You can grab the drivers from the link below.

Today we’ll be taking a look at the HyperX FURY RGB SSD. This SATA III 2.5-inch drive series is available in 240GB, 480GB and 960GB capacities and each has a light bar inside to give your gaming PC a little RGB lighting in a place that most don’t. This is yet another SATA III 6 Gbps drive, so sequential read/write performance is what you’d expect at up to 550 MB/s read and 480 MB/s write. This drive doesn’t really bring anything new to the table in terms of performance, so it’s primarily aimed at those that want to brighten their rigs with RGB lighting on an SSD.
