Fresh AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.9.1 graphics driver brings official SAM support for 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.
In less than a year, the situation on the video cards and processors market may improve. The head of AMD spoke about the shortage of chips
AMD CEO Lisa Su expressed her opinion on the duration of the chip shortage. According to her statement, in the first half of 2022, the supply is likely to still be limited.
But already in the second half of next year, the shortage of microcircuits will not be as acute as it is now. How much the situation will change, the head of AMD did not predict, but her vision is still better than that of a number of other specialists who predict improvement only in 2023.
It should be understood that AMD itself does not produce semiconductors, so we are talking about improving the situation in general, which will affect not only AMD, but all other companies as well.
In general, so far most forecasts agree that the situation with the deficit will improve at least in the second half of 2022 or at the beginning of 2023, but no one undertakes to predict when the situation will completely return to normal.
