If you are wanting some of the new drivers that are in Ubuntu 18.10, you may not need to upgrade from the LTS version to get them. Ubuntu is going to backport the new drivers and fixes to Ubuntu 18.04. Most of the features will come out slowly throughout the year, and they will be all available for the 18.04.2 release in February of this coming year. This is a plus for Linux gamers out there. Instead of having to upgrade to a beta release, we can now just wait for the new fixes and drivers to populate back to the LTS version.
