To ensure that your AMD Radeon always runs optimally, the drivers should be up-to-date and set correctly. COMPUTER BILD explains how it works with “AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition”.
gamers know how important a powerful graphics card is. However, even the best image maker can lose a lot of feathers due to outdated or poorly configured drivers. COMPUTER BILD shows how you can optimize your AMD Radeon driver settings to achieve the best performance.
Optimize AMD drivers: Current drivers
Graphics cards have to be maintained on the software side, with so-called drivers. How does the driver installation work? The easiest way to do this is to use the AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition program, which should be installed by default on your computer. To check for updates, open the app by right-clicking on the desktop. A box with “AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition” should appear in the drop-down menu. Click on it. A window with many options will appear, you click on the “Check for updates” button (on the right in the picture). If a new driver is available, it will be downloaded and installed automatically.
If you have older drivers installed, this field may be missing. But don’t worry: Alternatively, visit AMD’s website and download the latest driver package manually. Be sure to select the correct version for your graphics card and operating system. Once the download is complete, double-click the installer. Follow the instructions to install the new driver.
Full power for the graphics card
After installing the latest driver, you can improve the performance of your graphics card. To do this, open the “AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition” as described above and click on the “Gaming” tab. Now you will see a box that says “Global Graphic”. Click on it and in the window that opens, set the graphics profile to “Games”. This ensures that your graphics card runs at maximum performance at all times.
Professionals can let off steam in the “advanced graphics settings” and do fine tuning to achieve the best performance. For example, you set the quality of the texture filtering to “high” or set the option to “performance” on weaker PCs. And who deselects the “anisotropic filtering” gains in performance. The general rule of thumb is: The frame rate can be increased by disabling effects.
Fine tuning with Afterburner
Another way to improve the performance of your graphics card is to overclock it. This increases the clock frequency of the graphics card to increase performance. However, this increases the temperature of the graphics card. Therefore: Observe the temperature during the process.
Third-party software such as MSI Afterburner is suitable for this. These programs fine-tune settings such as fan speed and core voltage, which may help you achieve optimal performance. COMPUTER BILD explains how to do this in the guide to MSI Afterburner.
