Unreal Tournament 3 RX 480 still performs horribly. Can it be fixed by through the driver?

Dear readers

My old post of the Nvidia GT 710 performing 100% better than the RX 480 @480p seems to have been deleted for some reason.

My current build is

- Latest Windows 10 64bit

- 16GB DDR3 1866Mhz RAM

- FX 8350 @4Ghz (4.2Ghz boost)

- Compatible motherboard

- RX 480 8GB Radeon Card (Adrenaline 20.11.3)

- GTX 1060 3GB Nvidia Card

The previous explanation from the team was that they were working on a fix for too many Occlusion calls from the game, whereas the problem didn't exist in 16.6.2 Crimson drivers but does for every driver after that up until now. @dorisyan 

These screenshots were taken on Facing Worlds on top of the Castle in Capture the Flag mode. With any Radeon card or APU with current drivers it struggles to maintain above 32FPS in a lot of maps, whereas the weaker 3GB GTX 1060 easily does 70FPS+ in these scenes.

RX 480 sub-acceptable performance:

GTX 1060 3GB acceptable performance in 2020 for 2005/2006 game:

Please do not delete this again without explaining if you are able or willing to improve this unplayable variable performance issue. This is crucial in deciding to stay with team Radeon instead of Nvidia. At least give an explanation; for example, "the developers only optimized for Nvidia" or "Nvidia must've included an optimization fix for it all these year" and therefore we have decided it is up to the developers to provide better scalability.

Kind regards

Realy? So, we can hope that situation with bad performance of Unreal Engine 3&4 on Radeons will be fixed? How long this can take?

Hi @dipak @dorisyan @xhuang 

I would just please like to know if there are any new findings in this matter.

Kind regards

I hink. Sadly, AMD has far more pressing problems in drivers than the old game issue:(

@deepforest I don't think so, this has not been fixed since July 2016, which means AMD's RX 480 drivers has been faulty(since us end-consumers don't know the reason) for almost 5 years. AMD didn't even have a strong enough CPU on the market at the time to hide the issue, the only way to slightly mitigate the issue was having an absurtly strong single threaded CPU, such as a i5-7500k or i5-8400.

Therefore I would rate this as one of AMD's top pressing driver problems.

This is like making sure only the new tyres on your car are pumped, and therefore you don't have to worry about your flat old tyres at the rear of your car.

Look at the following screenshot, in 16.6.2 the radeon driver performed just as well in UT3 than the GTX 1060, what happened guys? This hasn't been fixed in almost 5 years.

Hi @dorisyan @dipak @xhuang I hope all is well with you guys.

It is important to know how the fix for Unreal Tournament 3 is coming along.

I am very glad with the improving Radeon Interface, but I am still experiencing exactly the same performance issues in Unreal Tournament 3 since just after 16.6.2 and even still with the latest 21.4.1 Radeon Driver which I installed today. Furthermore, I am still experiencing bad performance issues with Wolfenstein The New Order and The Old Blood only with Radeon cards.

Kind regards

Hi @Anonymous hope everyone at AMD well, I am wondering if you have any information on this.

Kind regards
