God of War - DirectX 11 on a new game release

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

Will AMD's new drivers boost modern games?

God of War launched earlier this year as a DirectX 11 title, proving that the DirectX 11 API isn't dead and remains something that's worth optimising for. New DirectX 11 games are still being releases, and that means that AMD's new May 2022 Preview driver can deliver performance gains in both old and new PC games, provided they use the Direct 11 API. 

Like Days Gone, God of War achieves higher performance levels with AMD's new GPU drivers, though the performance gains are relatively minor. Even so, these performance gains are a welcome sight. As Tesco does say, every little helps.

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
