Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III Plays Best on AMD Radeon™ Graphics

10 0 55.7K

I remember when the first Call of Duty came out in 2003; I was blown away by how immersive it was and how real all the missions felt.

Today, I am still stoked for this series and the latest installment, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and that is something admirable given all the years since the first game. Honestly, I can’t wait to unite with Captain Price and Task Force 141.


Unrivalled Performance with AMD

AMD Radeon™ RX 7000 series graphics card owners can set their game settings to “Extreme” and dive into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, knowing that they are getting THE BEST gaming experience, up to 44% faster than competition and over 100 FPS across the board.AMD Radeon - Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Blog Chart.png

By updating to the latest AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 23.11.1 driver with Day-0 optimizations for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, you will be able to get up to 16% performance gains.

If you want to push over 200 FPS or if you are playing on older graphics cards and need the additional framerates, you can always enable AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution 2 for that performance boost.
