Whether you’re getting in a practice match or playing for high stakes, you can’t afford to lose any seconds in League of Legends. In our efforts to bring more performance to the players, we took a took at how you can extract the most out of your AMD hardware when playing League of Legends.
We paired AMD’s new Ryzen™ 7 2700X with Radeon GPUs down the stack. Rushing around as Ahri, I threw myself into action-heavy scenes to see how far the Ryzen + Radeon™ RX combo could go.
Even as I switched out the graphics cards, I kept the maxed-out settings unchanged at Very High playing on a 1440p resolution. Steady and impressive framerates, no matter which GPU I used with the Ryzen 7 2700X!
I had no trouble getting 140+ FPS on any of the graphics cards I used at 1440p. When you’re playing with a Radeon RX 550 or 560, you can get impressive framerates playing at 1080p—but our Ryzen 7 2700X worked diligently so we didn’t lose any crucial frames even when you crank up the resolution.
Playing with Radeon Software features makes it even better. With the Radeon RX 550 on 1080p at Very High settings, Radeon Chill saves up to 25% of power consumption1 while Enhanced Sync gives you up to 46% faster response time2. By the time you get to the frenzied part of a match, these are features that can help push you past the victory line.
While it’s nice and dandy to play with the remarkable Ryzen 7 2700X with our Radeon RX graphics cards, check that you’re playing with the latest Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition for the latest updates and optimizations.

- Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of April 28th, 2018 on the 2GB Radeon™ RX 550, on a test system comprising of Intel i7 7700X CPU (4.2 GHz), 16GB DDR4-3000 Mhz system memory, and Windows 10 x64. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. With the very high preset on League of Legends® at 1920x1080, the Radeon™ RX 550 consumed 28.279 watts with Radeon™ Chill enabled whereas the Radeon™ RX 550 scored 37.559 watts with Radeon™ Chill disabled, lowering power consumption by 25% in League of Legends®. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. RS-235
