New Final Fantasy XV Update Adds Support For AMD Phenom II Processors, Kind Of Fixes Performance Degradation

Final Fantasy XV has been far from perfect and there have been issues with the game since it first came out but the new Final Fantasy XV update aims to fix most of that. The reason I say most of that is because the performance degradation has been fixed when people do not use the high-resolution textures. If you do plan on using them then you will still find the performance issues.

The new update also features support for AMD Phenom 2 processors. While these CPUs are pretty old, a few of you might have one of these CPUs in your system and if that is the case then you will surely appreciate this Final Fantasy XV update. You can check out changes below:

Content support for Twitch Prime members – Kooky chocobo now available to use in game.

If you are running the game with AMD hardware then you can check out the new drivers that offer a small boost in performance in the game as compared to the older version.
