AMD's Fine Wine strategy is working again. The Intel and Nvidia rival has released a new driver for its graphics cards, which owners of the current models in particular should not miss. The new software provides a significant performance boost.
AMD Adrenalin 23.7.1: Graphics card driver provides more performance
If you have an AMD Radeon RX 7600, RX 7900 XT or RX 7900 XTX installed in your computer and haven't updated your graphics card driver for a long time, you should do so as soon as possible.
As a performance comparison by YouTuber Ancient Gameplays suggests, owners of the new AMD graphics cards can look forward to a strong performance boost after installing AMD Adrenalin 23.7.1 - especially in Forza Horizon 5 and The Last of Us Part I, the differences are impressive.
If you play in Full HD with the RX 7900 XT, you can expect up to 67% more FPS in Forza Horizon 5 according to the YouTuber's numbers. If you use the even stronger RX 7900 XTX, you can still expect 32% more FPS. In The Last of Us Part I, the RX 7900 XTX achieves 22% more FPS in Full HD.
New AMD driver not only helps current graphics cards
Those who play in higher resolutions, such as WQHD or 4K, can also look forward to a performance boost - but it is somewhat lower.
Moreover, not only AMD's current graphics card generation benefits from the new driver, older graphics cards will also get a few more FPS.
AMD's DLSS alternative FSR 2 also provides more FPS, but you will lose some image quality. You can see the differences in the video:
Where can I download the new AMD driver?
To download the latest AMD graphics card driver, you have to visit AMD's support website. Here you can select your graphics card model and will then be offered the appropriate driver.
Don't be surprised: AMD has already released the driver version 23.7.2 in the meantime. If you install it, you will of course also benefit from the performance boost.
If you don't know which AMD graphics card is installed in your computer, you can download a tool from AMD that automatically detects which GPU is installed in your PC and then downloads the appropriate driver.
