As graphics applications, operating systems, and demands on our users change, we have continuously delivered improvements to our driver to improve the productivity of our users. With the release of AMD Radeon™ PRO Software for Enterprise version 21.Q3, we are continuing our focus on helping our professional workstation users to work faster, more reliably, and with greater efficiency.
We have improved our driver performance in professional applications so that our users can stay focused on creating and getting more done faster. Over the past year, our driver performance has improved by up to 16% on average across a range of viewsets.
1 Radeon PRO Software for Enterprise 21.Q3 vs. 20.Q3 year-over-year SPECviewperf® 2020 benchmark Catia-06 viewset, 3ds Max-07 viewset and all viewset geomean performance gains using the AMD Radeon™ PRO W5700.
In version 21.Q2, we launched Radeon PRO Viewport Boost which accelerates selected applications’ performance by dynamically adjusting viewport resolution.
With version 21.Q3, we are expanding the use case for our full-screen Radeon PRO Image Boost feature which increases resolution to improve image quality. We are now introducing this functionality for the viewport (Radeon PRO Viewport Image Boost2) with 3ds Max and Revit to deliver:
- Crisp images in the viewport all the while ensuring that performance is maintained. - Improved image quality to provide designers with better information to make informed decisions about what the project will look like and how it will function.
AMD Radeon PRO Software for Enterprise drivers provide high-end performance graphics for professional software applications. Our professional graphics solution includes an extensive application testing and certification process called the Day Zero Certification Program. This program helps ensure that developers can leverage the latest AMD Radeon PRO Software for Enterprise features combined with the reliability of certified software on the day of the driver release. Our driver is certified for performance and reliability in over 100 workstation applications, covering the leading software that professionals use.
