News hardware Windows 11 update: big performance boost for AMD Radeon graphics cards
If you find that your AMD Radeon graphics card isn’t performing as expected, the problem may not be entirely with you or your poorly optimized favorite game, but with a software glitch that could know a happy solution very soon.
Windows 11 22H2 update will improve the performance of AMD graphics cards
After having already significantly improved the performance of their cards in games running DirectX11 a few weeks ago (up to +30% for certain models), AMD is now tackling another API (programming interface), in l OpenGL instance.
Although the latter is no longer really used for new games, developers largely preferring Vulklan or DirectX 12, OpenGL remains a major API in the industry and is still present in many games on the market, but also in famous benchmarks that sometimes make rain or shine in the life of a product. And the least we can say is that most Radeon RX cards from AMD did not really shine in this area…
Up to 55% improvement for AMD Radeon graphics cards under OpenGL
It is on the famous Tech Guru3D forum and more particularly thanks to the contributor @The Creator, that we were able to have an overview of the performance of certain Radeon cards, and in particular the RX 6800 XT after installing the Beta version, reserved for Insiders, of the next Windows 11 update, the famous 22H2.
Inside it, we find a new AMD UWP driver 31.0.12000.20010 as well as a new OpenGL 22.05 beta driver which are at the origin of this impressive performance gap.
If all this should therefore not really change your daily life, the results of certain benchmarks, starting with the old, but still esteemed, Unigine Valley 2013, should allow the latest AMD cards to appear in their rightful place and no longer at the bottom of the ranking.
Thus, it was noted an increase in performance on this benchmark of approximately 33% on average and up to 55% for the Radeon RX 6800 XT. Conversely, in another famous benchmark, The Heaven, The Creator noted a… drop of 26%. But everything should be corrected by the final version. Normally…
