New Features

  • Memory values will now be detected properly when using integrated graphics.
  • Crashes will no longer occur if a GPU reports invalid memory values.
  • Some gameplay systems will no longer cause intermittent crashes.
  • Implemented small object culling to help reduce the number of objects being processed by the CPU.

Developed in response to recurring AMD performance issues, this change should improve minimum framerates in scenes where there are many objects on-screen. During our testing, we saw an average 20% improvement in frametimes above the 95th percentile.

To those not experiencing instances of major framerate drops, please note that this change will not result in a significant improvement to graphical performance.
