AMD has released new graphics card drivers for Radeon products – it is now clear that AMD will introduce new processors on October 8th and new graphics cards on October 28th. When it comes to CPUs, Zen 3 is coming up with new Ryzen 4000 models, while graphics cards are about the Radeon RX 6000 series. Release dates are not yet known.
Although Nvidia is currently dominating the headlines with the new Ampere GPUs and the GeForce RTX 3080, which will be released next week, there is also news from AMD. On the one hand, Team Red has released new drivers for Radeon graphics cards, on the other hand there will be events in October on the new Ryzen CPUs with the new Zen 3 architecture as well as on new graphics cards from the Radeon RX 6000 series.
Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.8.3
The latest graphics card drivers from AMD are equipped with the unusual version number 20.8.3 – the 8 actually stands for August. AMD may have released an update to an August driver. The release notes are primarily about support for Project Cars 3 and Marvel's Avengers and an increase in performance for Fortnite. Our Colleagues from PC Games Hardware previously reported about a re-release of driver version 20.8.2, which is about the Microsoft Flight Simulator, among other things.
Ryzen 4000 (Zen 3) and RX 6000 in October
Also too to read from our colleagues at PC Games Hardware is information about new CPUs and graphics cards from AMD. Because AMD will inform about new products in two events. On October 8th, AMD will present the new Ryzen 4000 CPUs with the Zen 3 architecture, on October 28th it will be about new graphics cards, whereby AMD is talking about the new RDNA-2 architecture in connection with the graphics card generation RX 6000 to introduce. It is not yet clear when the processors and graphics cards will go on sale. It cannot be ruled out that the release will follow the two events directly.

So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.
For this reason we turn to you now. You can support us as a PC Games supporter so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual form free of charge without introducing a paywall or publishing clickbait news like "And you won't believe what happened next …" .
