Radeon Crimson Driver Expected to Boost Linux Performance By 100%
AMD is pushing performance on Linux which is amazing news for gamers around the world who use this operating system. While fans could have been happy with a simple 10 to 15 percent boost, AMD has gone on to announce over 100% Linux performance improvement with the Radeon Crimson Driver.
Crimson is released today and is now available for players using AMD hardware.
AMD shared a few slides which showed 112% performance boost in Bioshock Infinite, 113% in DOTA and a staggering 155% in Total War.
AMD chose to share performance of these games because they probably show the highest number of performance improvement. It would be interesting to see how Linux does now with some of the more demanding games like Metro: Last Night.
Of course, gamers will put this claim to test in the coming weeks and we’ll get to see how much truth this performance boost holds.
Expect tests to start coming in the next week or so.
Lastly, while any performance improvement is welcomed, AMD should also work on improving its driver support for Linux.
