Smart Access Memory on Zen 2 CPUs - The Power of Resizable Bar!

Cyberpunk 2077 - Resizable Bar On VS Off

With Cyberpunk 2077 being an Nvidia optimised title, we didn't expect AMD's Smart Access Memory/Resizable BAR feature to have a notable impact on the game's performance. We were wrong. 

Like Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077's lower percentile framerates saw a larger performance boost than average framerates, boosting our 1080p 1st percentile framerates (from our GPU test scene) from 64.7 FPS to 74.2 FPS.

In Cyberpunk 2077, lower performance gains are seen at higher resolutions, with our 4K results benefitting less than our 1080p results. That said, the performance gains that we see here are worth taking note of.

The results in Assassins Creed and Forza are pretty impressive for something as simple as a bios update.Quote

Yeah, it is crazy how much extra performance the feature brings to some games. It will be interesting how games utilise this feature in the future, especially when Nvidia adopts a form of it.Quote

Some X470 and B450 boards do, I wouldn't expect the full functionality though as the boards are quite literally missing the hardware needed for full PCI-E 4 support.
