Depending on whether you're are packing an RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT, or RX 6700 XT, you could be looking at 14%, 15% or 11% upticks in performance (respectively) at UHD, with graphics set to ultra. And the new Adrenalin driver doesn't stop there.
Should you feel like taking a break from the drudgeries of war to do a little long haul flight, or escape to the country to plant some grain, the new driver also targets Microsoft Flight Simulator: Game of the Year Edition, as well as Farming Simulator 22.
