AMD Radeon RX 6000 “RDNA 2” GPU, up to 40% better ray tracing performance for 3DMark DXR with the latest drivers.

* The latest AMD Radeon graphics drivers are said to cause PCs to fail to corrupt Windows.

The cause is not clear yet, but there are stories like the above, so be careful when using it.

AMD’s recently released Radeon drivers have brought significant improvements to the ray tracing performance of the Radeon RX 6000 “RDNA 2” GPUs within the 3DMark DXR test.

Latest AMD Radeon Driver Brings Major Ray-Tracing Improvements, Up to 40% Faster for RX 6000 “RDNA 2” GPUs in 3DMark DXR Tests

AMD Radeon RX 6000 “RDNA 2” GPU users have had to wait over two months to get access to the latest Radeon driver release, but the red team has made some significant improvements, especially in our ray tracing tests, it appears to have introduced significant graphics performance improvements.

Although AMD mentioned a gaming-specific performance boost but not major improvements in ray tracing, it looks like 6000 series owners managed to uncover some big gains.

Longtime Wccftech reader Florin Musetoiu has published results on Twitter showing that his AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT has improved from 26.20 FPS to 36.20 FPS in the 3DMark DirectX Raytracing feature test.

This represents a 38.2% improvement over the legacy driver using the same settings and test settings.

Florin has also tested performance in games like Dying Light 2, initially hitting 59 FPS at 1440p with FSR2 enabled.

With the latest drivers, same settings, same PC configuration, same location, up to 72 FPS.

That’s a 22% improvement, but this performance jump was already present with the old driver (22.11.2), which was launched on December 22nd.

If AMD Radeon RX 6000 “RDNA 2” GPUs get a big performance boost in ray tracing, that would be great for users, but that’s just one result, so this performance boost will be seen in other game titles .But it is too early to say whether it will be obvious or not.

If AMD had seen such a big ray tracing performance boost on their older cards, they would have definitely touched on or talked about it in their recent blogs.

Radeon RX 6000 GPUs are on sale at record low prices as the red team wants to clear inventory to keep up with the upcoming new GPUs.

AMD’s new driver boosts Radeon ray tracing performance by 40%

The 38.2% improvement was seen in the 3D Mark test results, and it appears to be 22% in the actual game.

Either way, it looks like you’re seeing a significant improvement in performance.

I often see benchmark results on Twitter for the ARC A750, which recently sold for less than 20,000 yen, but it doesn’t seem to be quite stable.

Radeon ray tracing performance is the same, but the collection of information makes a difference that cannot be taken for granted.

In this respect, I think it is safe to say that Geforce, which has been equipped with ray tracing since two generations ago, is quite ahead.

Some of you may have noticed that Intel’s ARC is struggling with stability.

For Radeon, I think the fact that the ray tracing results increase is the driver after the release of RDNA3, which shows the difficulty of the first product.
