AMD rolled out the Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.6.2 update. This new driver release supports the new DOOM Eternal update with Vulkan Ray Tracing. AMD added support for more Vulkan extensions and fixed some bugs too. If you prefer manual installation, you can get the driver via this page
DOOM Eternal™ Vulkan® Ray Tracing
Added Vulkan® Support:
VK_EXT_custom_border_color: This extension allows applications to specify a custom border color for when the sampler address mode VK_SAMPLER_ADDRESS_MODE_CLAMP_TO_BORDER is used.
VK_KHR_shader_subgroup_uniform_control_flow: This extension exposes the availability of the SPV_KHR_subgroup_uniform_control_flow SPIR-V extension for shader modules use. The SPIR-V extension provides stronger guarantees that diverged subgroups will reconverge.
VK_EXT_color_write_enable: This extension allows applications to selectively enable and disable writes to output color attachments via a pipeline dynamic state. This has the potential to reduce pipeline counts for increased efficiency.
