Gamers who play popular game titles in AMD computers with Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition may receive a boosted experience. According to the chipmaker, a new version of the software has been released that is a part of the Project Radeon eSports Experience.

The Project ReSX focuses on applying optimizations in popular games such as Overwatch and Defense of the Ancients or DOTA 2.

“The goal of this project was to optimize the performance of some of the most popular PC games in the world on Radeon graphics cards,” stated the company.

In theory, the optimizations deliver faster gaming due to FPS improvements, fluid gaming due to frame time improvements, and more responsiveness due to improvements in click-to-response function.

AMD labs tested the Project ReSX optimizations and found the following results:

- About eight percent FPS improvements using high preset on Fortnite at 1440p resolution.

- About seven percent frame time improvements using high present on Fortnite at 1440p resolution.

- About 13 percent response time improvements using epic present on Fortnite at 1080p resolution.

- About 3 percent FPS improvements in Overwatch at 1440p resolution. But it was11 percent in Battlegrounds at 1080p resolution, and 6 percent in DOTA 2 at 4K resolution.

- About nine percent FPS improvements in Battlegrounds at 1080p resolution, two percent in Overwatch, and seven percent in DOTA 2.

For now, the optimizations are currently available for those game titles. But AMD confirms that improvements to newer and other popular games will be delivered as well. The latest version of the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition is 18.3.1 that has support for Final Fantasy XV and Warhammer: Vermintide II. The new software version also contains several fixes, such as hang or crash in Sea of Thieves and texture flickering in Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
