Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., an American multinational semiconductor company that develops computer processors and related technologies for business and consumer markets is keen to remain competitive in the PC gaming hardware expanse.

In view of this, they are putting their heart and soul into optimising the performance for some of the eSports titles namely- Overwatch, Dota 2 and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which are most in vogue. Their latest edition of the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition (18.3.1) packs tweaks courtesy of an internal group unveiled during the Vega launch — called Project ReSX (Radeon eSports Experience), that they claim worked directly with developers to optimise performance.

The fruits of their labor (measured on a PC with 8GB Radeon RX 580, Intel i7 7700K CPU (4.2GHz), 16GB DDR4-3000 Mhz system memory, and Windows 10 x64) mean an 11 percent better frame rate in PUBG running at 1080p (69.6 fps), 3 percent improvement for Overwatch at 1440p (117.9 fps) and 6 percent better in Dota 2 at 4K res (95.9 fps). Other tweaks are implemented to improve “99th percentile” frame performance of the frames that are hardest for a GPU to render, and input response time.

Richard Lawler, who has been tech-obsessed since first laying hands on an Atari joystick,  now scouring the net for the latest news, added: : “We’re not sure if that’s enough to pull gamers away from NVIDIA cards they might have, but if you’re using one of the Radeon setups, then you can grab the newest drivers right here. In a time when good GPUs are hard to find thanks to cryptocurrency mining, we need as many good options as we can get.”
