Rise of the Tomb Raider's latest patch includes Ryzen CPU optimisations

 
Square Enix has now released their twelfth patch for Rise of the Tomb Raider's PC version, which is designed to address some issues with the game's DirectX 12 version. 
 
This update is designed to address the performance of the game in CPU bound situations, especially when the player is using AMD's new Ryzen CPUs. 
 
Hopefully, this means that Square Enix will be working to optimise their future games for both AMD and Intel CPU platforms and work to take advantage of high core/thread counts on PC. Thanks to the release of Ryzen, both AMD and Intel now offer high-performance, multi-threaded CPUs with much lower pricing than before, making it more important than ever that developers take advantage of the hardware available.

Those who suffer from any issues with this patch will be able to roll the game back to the previous build of the game using Steam's beta functionality, which Square Enix use to archive older versions of the game.

Great news. IT's one thing for AMD to release a fast 8 core CPU, another for a game dev to actually support it properly. Didn't get any of this for Vishera !Quote

Tomb Raider was AMD sponsored game from start, so ti is obvious they will be among the first to implement patches. With Ryzen slowly taking bigger, and bigger place on the market this should become more standard. Thing s are looking good. AMD has re-energized the market.Quote

Rise of the Tomb Raider was actually more of a Nvidia game TBH, I think it was bundled with their GPUs at the time at it uses HBAO+.

The original was an AMD Gaming Evolved title, but Rise of the Tomb Raider isn't. Rise of the Tomb Raider was also the first game to use a Nvidia friendly implementation of ASYNC Compute etc.Quote

Yeah I think Nvidia realised the importance of getting in on big game releases after the original.

I still prefer the original though. I got stuck on the new one and could not figure it out (you are in the water under ice) so I gave up lol.Quote

Good news. I'm pleased the developer is still working on perfecting this game so long after its release.Quote
