AMD's DirectX 11 Boosting Driver Tested - Great news for classic PC games on Radeon

Days Gone - Not every game can be Crysis

Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Crysis Remastered revealed that almost magical performance gains are possible with AMD's new May Preview drivers. Days Gone proves that this is not the case for all games, though that does not mean that we haven't seen notable performance gains. 

AMD's May 2022 Preview driver gives us a moderate performance boost at 1080p and smaller gains at 1440p and 4K. Even so, we saw performance gains at all resolutions, and all performance gains are welcome. While AMD's May 2022 driver is not a DirectX 11 magic bullet, it nonetheless delivers notable performance benefits.

Well I didn't install this i'll wait for it next month no doubt, but i did install the latest driver and tested out death loop with fsr2 it plays fine idk if better or not thou tbh as it was some time since i played it so looks wise not sure but seemed less grainy than i remembered it.

fps wise it's higher thou and the only odd thing is when you load into game the fps is low then rockets afterwards so it's doing something different.Quote

Regarding Far Cry 5 you said

That said, it makes us wonder if performance would chance with a processor like AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X3D or Intel's latest 12th generation CPU models. Would we see performance gains with AMD's new driver if we were less CPU limited?
The AMD blog post about the performance update says that Far Cry 5 has a 4% improvement, and the driver release notes say that at least the gains mentioned in the release notes are with the 5800X3D, so I'd say that yes, you should expect a small improvement with the 5800X3D.Quote
