AMD preview driver: significant gains for GPUs

AMD has released a new graphics driver – albeit still in testing – but the fresh release is very noteworthy in terms of the performance improvements it provides for gamers running a Team Red graphics card.

The boost which AMD’s Software Preview Driver May 2022 delivers to RX 6000 GPUs – which were just joined by a trio of new offerings earlier this week, including a refreshed flagship RX 6950 XT – is a considerable one for DX11 games, and around 10% on average, AMD claims.

 

That includes some pretty incredible gains for certain games, in particular World of Warcraft: Shadowlands which runs up to 30% faster with this preview (beta) driver, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey does nearly as well with an up to 28% increase (compared to the Adrenalin version 22.5.1 graphics driver).

 

Total War Saga: Troy posts an impressive 17% boost, too, while GTA V comes in at up to 11%, and Watch Dogs: Legion hits 10%, with Valorant at 7%, according to AMD’s own testing.

Along with those core performance improvements, AMD has made a couple of other moves with this beta driver, including introducing a new version 1.1 of Radeon Super Resolution or RSR, which is Team Red’s frame rate booster that works across a whole swathe of games (as opposed to FSR, which must have support baked into the game by developers). RSR 1.1 adds a slider for ‘sharpen effect’ which, as you might guess, sharpens up the image, so you can adjust the appearance to your liking.

Also, some Smart Access Memory (SAM) optimizations have been implemented for Death Stranding and Watch Dogs: Legion, with up to 10% better performance promised in former, and 13% in the latter (at 1440p resolution with a Radeon RX 6950 XT graphics card). SAM facilitates frame rate gains due to giving the Ryzen CPU full access to GPU memory (it’s Team Red’s take on Resizable BAR, essentially).

Frame rate boosting RSR tech also got a nifty improvement with this beta driver

 

 

Always happy to get more performance but it makes me wonder, why didn't this happen sooner?

Just installed it. Lot of driver improvement to do. The 6000 gen can't even fold a realistic ppd. A 1080ti fold more and it like 7 years old.

WATCH OUT BROZERS AND SIZTERS ! AMD uses technology called "FineWine" to  make their GPUs "better", Wine is HARAM. : r/Izlam

That true loved that with my 7950 since i buyed them used. But kinda boring when you get them new... In 4 years my 6800xt  is going to beat a 3090 :hats_holiday:

Looks like the gains are now available in the standard driver.
