AMD continues to work on improvements with the Windows 11 feature version 22H2. AMD is currently working on an update to its driver that will improve Radeon’s OpenGL performance in comparison to other competitors. The next Windows 11 release has been released in the Release Preview channel. This means that the hardware partner of Microsoft is now running at maximum speed. This includes the driver testing from major graphics card manufacturers.
Microsoft has been testing a new version Microsoft’s graphics driver architecture, Windows 11, in the Insider channel. It is called WDDM (Windows Display Driver Model 3.1). It is not clear what it might be. We reported that Nvidia already released an update for Windows 11 version 22H2. AMD now has the opportunity to update Windows 11 version 22H2 (we reported).
AMD’s new driver, Windows 11 22H2 WDM 3.1 support, should finally correct Radeon’s poor OpenGL performance. AMD’s OpenGL drivers and graphics performance were below average for a long time. AMD created the “Mantle API” in order to gain an advantage over low-level graphics.
Microsoft now offers the AMD prerelease 31.0.12000.20010 driver for Windows 11. The 22.05 OpenGL beta driver is included in this driver package. This greatly improves the performance of AMD GPUs when used with OpenGL applications. Members of the Guru3D forums discovered this performance boost.
