Fresh AMD Radeon driver released: Support for Windows 11

Fresh AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.9.1 graphics driver brings official SAM support to Radeon RX 5000 graphics cards. Recall that SAM is an implementation of the PCI Resizable BAR function, which allows the processor to gain full access to the memory of the video card, thereby increasing the performance in games. True, it rises perceptibly only in a few modern projects.

Officially, before the release of the fresh driver, SAM was only supported by Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards, although it could be run on older adapters. What will be the performance gains for the RX 5000 now, with the advent of official support, the first tests will show.

Also, the fresh driver brought AMD Auto Overclock support. On systems with Ryzen 5000 processors and Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards, this feature automatically overclocks the CPU and GPU.

Of the rest, a number of optimizations and official support for Windows 11 can be noted.
