If you find that your AMD Radeon graphics card is not working as expected, the problem may not solely be you or your favorite poorly optimized game, but a software bug that may very soon find a happy solution.

So, if all of this doesn’t really change your day-to-day life, the results of certain benchmarks, starting with the old but still cherished Unigine Valley 2013, should put the latest AMD cards in their rightful place and no longer at the bottom of the rankings.

In this benchmark, an average increase in performance of around 33% and up to 55% was found for the Radeon RX 6800 XT. Conversely, in another famous benchmark, The Heaven, The Creator noted a 26% drop. But everything should be corrected by the final version. Usually…
