AMD has been continuously improving their performance since the premiere of Ryzen. Sometimes the updates significantly improve the performance of processors only in specific titles. This time, the game Rise of the Tomb Raider got such an update.
Beginning with version 770.1, Ryzen CPU users can expect up to 28% performance gains. People with 123.4fps at medium settings in Full HD can expect to see 160.2fps after the update. Even people using the high settings can notice a large profit. Then it will be, for example, from 120.4 fps to 151.4 fps.
AMD conducted tests using a Ryzen 7 1800X processor and GeForce GTX 1080 graphics. This configuration was chosen to prove that the increase is in the CPU itself and not in changes to the graphics card drivers. Each user can also check for himself how the update worked in his case.
As you can see, optimizing the processor for a specific game can bring big profits. Initially, Ryzen processors were losing to the competition in games, but who knows, maybe if there will be more such updates, the situation will change?
