New Updates to RSR and DX11 Performance Optimizations

6 0 23.5K

With the release of the new Radeon™ RX 6950, 6750 and 6650 series of products, AMD is ensuring full support for these amazing graphics cards with our powerful, enhanced software solution (1). Available today, AMD Software Preview Driver May 2022 is ready for download, improving performance, introducing new features, and refining existing ones.

New Updates to RSR 1.1 

As users continue to enjoy the benefits of Radeon™ Super Resolution across thousands of games, AMD has continued to develop and refine the product to give you more customization over your gaming experience. 

When you update to our preview driver, you will see a new “sharpen effect” slider – allowing you to fine-tune the sharpness effect of RSR to your own desired settings. Have more control of how RSR works on your computer while experiencing an increase in frames across a wide range of titles.


DX11 Performance Improvements

AMD is constantly fine tuning our drivers and looking at ways to deliver more performance for our products. Through rigorous testing and development, our preview driver delivers on average, up to 10% increase in performance gains in DX 11-based games on your Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card – with some games reaching even higher than average gains such as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – up to 28%, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands – up to 30%, and Grand Theft Auto V – up to 11%.(2) Additional games that were tested include:

Additional Information to Improve Your Experience

At AMD, one of our mandates is to ensure that users have the best experiences possible and can take full advantage of their hardware with AMD Software. Our drivers are tested thoroughly within the development stage. While issues are rare, to help us further and make the AMD Software experience even better for everyone, the Bug Report Tool is available and easily accessible right within the software. Simply click the bug icon at the top right of AMD Software and it will open the tool where you can report issues with a description and any media attachments you may wish to include. The tool itself will automatically capture necessary system hardware and software configurations.


The tool can also be downloaded separately from HERE .


Often problems can be resolved by restarting your system or performing a clean installation of AMD Software. To perform a clean installation, make sure to click the dropdown menu in “Additional Options” then click the checkbox beside “Factory Reset”.


Once this is selected, old instances of the driver will be removed, and the uninstaller will restart your system before the new driver installation begins. If there are additional issues that still persist and would like to reach out to the customer care team, you can reach them HERE.
