Improved Productivity with Year-Over-Year Performance Improvements
With our quarterly enterprise driver releases, we are continuously optimizing performance in every release, in part thanks to the close collaborations we have with leading ISV application developers. That means if you want to boost your productivity and turbocharge your workflows, it pays to update to our latest driver. For example, Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2 is up to 14% faster in the geomean of the SPECviewperf 13 benchmark viewsets than last year’s 19.Q2 driver1 and you can expect to see additional performance improvements over the lifetime of your Radeon Pro graphics card2.

Rethink Power Efficiency with Intelligent Power Management
Our driver’s intelligent power usage management enables select AMD Radeon Pro graphics cards to choose the optimal power for different professional application workflows, and that doesn’t just include in manufacturing applications like SOLIDWORKS but also when using creative applications like Adobe Photoshop. When using our AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2 driver, the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 graphics card used up to 18% less system power when running Photoshop than the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics card using the NVIDIA Quadro Optimal Driver for Enterprise (ODE) R440 U7 (442.74) driver3.

Radeon Pro is Designed for Multitasking
Today’s creative workflows very rarely involve working with one application at a time – you’re constantly switching between different applications and doing tasks in the foreground while you wait for more demanding tasks, such as rendering, to finish in the background. When it comes to multitasking AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise and AMD Radeon Pro graphics together deliver superior performance to our competition. When using SOLIDWORKS and CPU rendering with KeyShot 8 in the background, AMD Radeon Pro W5700 graphics card when using Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2 provides up to 2.4x the average performance versus the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics card using the NVIDIA Quadro Optimal Driver for Enterprise (ODE) R440 U7 (442.74) driver4.

Footnotes

  1. AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2 is up to 14% faster in the geomean of the SPECviewperf 13 benchmark viewsets than AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q2 when using the Radeon Pro WX 4100 GPU. Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of April 29, 2020, on a test system comprising of an Intel Xeon W-2125 4-core 4.50 GHz CPU, 32 GB RAM, Windows 10 for Workstations 64-bit October 2018 Update, System BIOS 1.11.1 at default settings, Radeon Pro WX 4100, AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2/AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q2. Benchmark Application: ran the SPECviewperf 13 benchmark and then calculated the geomean of all viewsets (higher is better). AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2: 41.84. AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q2: 36.86. Performance Differential: (41.84-36.86)/36.86*100 = ~13.51% better performance with AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2 on the Radeon Pro WX 4100 graphics card. Scores are based on AMD internal lab measurements and may vary. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. RPS-125

  3. The same computer equipped with the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 graphics card using AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2 consumes up to 18% less average system power the PugetBench for Photoshop benchmark compared to the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics card using the NVIDIA Quadro Optimal Driver for Enterprise (ODE) R440 U7 (442.74) driver. 

    Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of April 20, 2020, on the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 graphics card and AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2 and the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics card with the NVIDIA Quadro Optimal Driver for Enterprise (ODE) R440 U7 (442.74) driver, on a test system comprising an Intel Core i9-9900K, 32 GB DDR4 RAM, Asus ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming motherboard with BIOS version 12.0.22.1310 at default settings, 512 GB Intel 760p SSD, Windows 10 Pro November 2019 Update. Power was measured using the power using a Kill-A-Watt P3 P4400 wattmeter over the timespan of PugetBench for Adobe Photoshop v. 0.8 beta, commercial version. Scores are based on AMD internal lab measurements and may vary. PugetBench is from Puget Systems. RPW-312

  4. The AMD Radeon Pro W5700 graphics card when using AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2 provides up to 2.4x the average SPECapc for SOLIDWORKS 2019 benchmark  Graphics Composite performance while multitasking with KeyShot 8 CPU rendering when compared to the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics card using the NVIDIA Quadro Optimal Driver for Enterprise (ODE) R440 U7 (442.74) driver. Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of April 20, 2020, on the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 graphics card and AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 20.Q2 and the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics card with the NVIDIA Quadro Optimal Driver for Enterprise (ODE) R440 U7 (442.74) driver, on a test system comprising an Intel Core i9-9900K, 32 GB DDR4 RAM, Asus ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming motherboard with BIOS version 12.0.22.1310 at default settings, 512 GB Intel 760p SSD, Windows 10 Pro November 2019 Update. Benchmark application: the SPECapc for SOLIDWORKS 2019 benchmark Graphics Composite was run while KeyShot 8 CPU rendered an AMD internal 3d model at 1920 x 1080 with continuous iterations to simulate the application workflow performance with multitasking. Calculated the ratio between the two scores. AMD Radeon Pro W5700 SPECapc for SOLIDWORKS 2019 benchmark Graphics Composite average overall test results score with KeyShot 8 CPU rendering a 3d model: 2.17. NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 SPECapc for SOLIDWORKS 2019 benchmark Graphics Composite average overall test results score with KeyShot 8 CPU rendering a 3d model: 0.91. Difference in performance while multitasking between the AMD Radeon Pro W5700 graphics card and the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics card (2.17/0.91) = 2.38x the average SPECapc for SOLIDWORKS 2019 benchmark Graphics Composite performance (while multitasking with KeyShot 8 CPU rendering a 3d model) for the AMD Radeon Pro W5700. Scores are based on AMD internal lab measurements and may vary. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. RPW-316

I would really appreciate that you guys fix the crash issue I'm having while trying to play some games like re2

Yes! I´m getting issues with that game crashing while i try to open it, also I´m having fps issues at star wars jedi fallen order and Call of duty warzone.

My pc its the following one: RX5700 MSI EVOKE OC,  Ram: 16 gb 3000 mhz corsair, Cpu: Ryzen 5 3600, I have an original copy of windows 10.

Wait a second, you're not using a workstation GPU, and  you're posting your concern in a enterprise workstation driver post? Now i don't have any problem with that, because i use Enterprise drivers on my RX 570, they seem to work better than normal drivers right now. But i am curious, have  you tried installing Adrenalin drivers ?

 

I can confirm that there are issues with a few games that crash using the 20 series enterprise drivers, which is why i don't use them, i use Enterprise 19.Q4.1 for my RX 570 which are way better. But try installing the latest Adrenalin drivers or 20.4.1.

If you prefer to use enterprise drivers, use the 19.Q4.1 and see how they work.

I´m going to be honest with you I don´t have an idea about drivers with AMD i know its kinda of different but then you recommend me to use the 19.Q4.1?

Try these drivers, this is the area where you find new drivers, i recommend you try Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.4.2 Recommended (WHQL). 20.51 has issues atm.
