Graphic processors, AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA are mainly focused on modern API DirectX 12 and Vulkan. However, the AMD has already significantly "dumped" the game's performance of Radeon RX during the past summer while working with OpenGL. Now it has reached the line for professional Radeon Pro, with the help of a new driver, providing them with a significant acceleration in OpenGL applications.
It will be recalled that in July, AMD released for the supported video game cards Radeon driver AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 22.7.1, which, among other things, significantly increased the performance of OpenGL games. In particular, Minecraft, with a new version of the driver, operates up to 79% faster on Radeon RX 6950 XT and up to 75% faster on Radeon RX 6400 on 4K resolution and Fabuluus quality settings.
The AMD Software driver: PRO Edition 22.Q3 has now been released for the Radeon Pro video cards, primarily designed to work with 3D graphics, which also greatly increases their productivity in OpenGL. In particular, the Radeon Pro W6800 video card, with new software, has a faster rate of 28 per cent and 52 per cent for Solidworks in 1080r and 4K respectively. In Autodesk Maya, the increase in the same permits is 72 per cent and 34 per cent respectively. And the most impressive increase is immediately 115 per cent for Radeon Pro W6400 in Solidwoks in 4K.
AMD also stated that the new driver had helped her video cards, such as Radeon Pro W6800, W6600 and W6400, to get ahead of her direct competitors from NVIDIA, RTX A5000, A2000 and T600 respectively.
Note that, in addition to desktop video cards, the new driver is also compatible with mobile professional accelerators, which are used in various laptops from Dell, HP, Lenovo and Panasonic. You can download a new driver for Radeon Pro's video cards here, as well as access to other test results.
