Key details on the latest driver:
- Release Date: August 31st, 2022
- WHQL Certified: Yes
- New Features: Radeon Super Resolution, auto overclocking
- Performance Improvements: Up to 13% faster in several games
- Fixed Issues: Ryzen CPU compatibility, flickering in multiple apps
The 22.8.2 drivers provide major boosts in both performance and functionality for RX 580 users. The headline upgrades are Radeon Super Resolution technology for new upscaling abilities, auto overclocking for extra FPS, and a long list of application-specific optimizations. This guide will explore the improvements in more detail below.
Major New Features
Recent Radeon drivers for RX 580 cards have introduced some exciting new technologies:
Radeon Super Resolution
- New spatial upscaling tech to boost framerates without sacrificing image quality
- Uses edge-reconstructing algorithm to sharp up low-res rendered frames
- Can gain up to 2x higher FPS in supported games
- New easy automatic overclocking of GPU speeds via software
- Achieves higher frequencies and performance with one click
- Machine learning algorithms customize profiles per card
- Upgrade to existing sync tech that reduces tearing without input lag
- New support for borderless fullscreen apps and multi-monitor
- Smoother VRR experience with unlocked frame rates
AMD Noise Suppression
- New microphone noise removal filter for chat apps
- AI-powered noise reduction to block background sounds
- Makes voices more clear and intelligible for listeners
The latest Radeon drivers have improved RX 580 frame rates substantially in many top games. Some examples:
|Up to 13% faster
|Up to 11% faster
|Up to 18% faster
These optimizations come via new shader caching improvements, compatibility profiles and other low-level GPU tweaks the drivers can apply per game. Auto overclocking can also give an extra boost up to 10% in some titles when enabled.
The 22.8.2 drivers fix a range of stability and compatibility problems reported by users:
- Flickering textures in Hitman 3 DX12 mode
- Intermittent crashes or timeouts on RX 580 + Ryzen systems
- OpenGL rendering errors in Maya 2023 animation software
- Heavy stuttering during video playback with Chrome
- Black screening when launching Call of Duty: Warzone
These problematic bugs are now resolved, marking a major stability upgrade. AMD also continues working to fix remaining known issues covered below.
While major progress has been made, a few notable problems remain unfixed in the latest RX 580 drivers:
- Screen artifacts in some Unreal Engine 4 games
- Lower performance in DirectX 9 apps compared to older drivers
- Radeon recording/streaming fails to enable for Forza Horizon 4
- Video stuttering when using multi-monitor mixed refresh rates
AMD engineers are actively working on solutions for these remaining issues. However, there are potential temporary workarounds available for each:
- Try disabling Radeon Image Sharpening to reduce UE4 artifacts
- Run DX9 games in DX11 compatibility mode if possible
- Restart recording after launch or update to Windows 11 for streaming fix
- Enable vsync or try display cloning for multi-monitor stutter
Permanent driver fixes for all problems are expected within 1-2 months.
