AMD today released the new Radeon Adrenalin 22.2.2 graphics driver. There is usually no significant event in the output of the next driver, but not this time.
In addition to various optimizations for new games, which are in almost every fresh driver, this one brings an improvement in the performance of AMD Smart Access Memory (SAM) technology. Recall that this technology allows the processor to get full access to the memory of the video card, which provides an increase in performance in games. In some cases, it is barely noticeable, and in some cases it goes by 10-15%.
The new driver improves this figure. AMD says that in Assassin's Creed Valhalla in Full HD at maximum graphics quality settings you can get up to 24% increase, in Battlefield 5 the increase can reach 23%, in Borderlands 3 - up to 18%, in Gears 5 - up to 12%, and so on. And even in the very resource-intensive Ceyberpunk 2077, you can get up to 10% performance increase. Recall that the function does not impose any restrictions and has no side effects. True, to activate it, you need modern AMD components.
