AMD Radeon Software Crimson 16.4.2 - DirectX 12 Performance Boosted
Published: 25th April 2016 | Source: AMD Radeon Technologies Group | Price: |
To test the performance of AMD's new Radeon Software Crimson 16.4.2 driver we will be testing a large number of DirectX 12 games that are currently available on the market. In these games, we will test the game with their own specific Radeon Software driver update and compare that performance to AMD's new 16.4.2 driver.
If the 16.4.2 driver gives us a performance boost when compared to each game's specific DirectX 12 optimized driver we can then conclusively prove that AMD has indeed improved their DirectX 12 driver support.
We will also be testing each of these games with Nvidia's GTX 980Ti with their latest 364.96 drivers in order to see if AMD's claims that they have the best performance in DirectX 12 hold true.
We will be testing this new driver on our dedicated Gaming test rig using the current flagship GPUs from both AMD and Nvidia. Both GPUs will be the reference design and will be running at stock settings.
