The Medium is a psychological horror game from Bloober Team. The title is available on Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC. Multiple storefronts on PC have it including Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store, and even the Windows Store. Xbox Game Pass users can also download it, as it has been available on it since its release. This is a fairly demanding game, and even powerful GPUs can’t seem to run it that well when ray-tracing is turned on. To improve your performance, make sure you download The Medium optimized AMD Drivers 21.2.1 on PC.
This is a proper next-gen title, and thus, the high requirements are to be expected. It also features ray-tracing and renders two game scenes in certain scenarios as well. Most PC users with budget cards will likely have to either lock the framerate at 30 FPS or play at lower visual settings. Being on the latest drivers, whether you are on AMD or NVIDIA is also essential, and will definitely improve your current performance.
These drivers add support for the following hardware and game(s)
Up to 9% increase in performance in The Medium @ 4K High settings, with Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 21.2.1 on the 16GB Radeon™ RX 6800XT graphics card, versus the previous software driver edition 21.1.1. RS-351
