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

Far Cry 5 - Even DX11 magic cannot fix this game's CPU limits

Far Cry 5, the exception that proves the rule

Throughout our testing, Far Cry 5 was the only game that did not showcase universal performance gains with AMD's new May Preview driver. All of our results here are within a standard run-to-run variances.

If there are two things that Far Cry 5 loves, its faster single-threaded CPU performance, large L3 caches, and fast memory. AMD's May 2022 Preview driver has not changed these factors, so the game's performance remains limited. 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?

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

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
