Driver Update: AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 22.6.1

AMD has released a new version of its Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 2020 drivers. The drivers are only suitable for the RX 400 and above. The drivers are only offered for 10 and above. Windows 7 and 8 are now labeled as legacy. Furthermore, there are no more 32-bit drivers available. In version 22.6.1 we find improvements for the game F1 2022 and several problems have been fixed.

  • Up to 5% increase in performance in F1 2022 @ 4k Ultra High settings, using AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 22.6.1 on the Radeon️ RX 6950 XT, versus the previous software driver version 22.5.2
  • Up to 4% increase in performance in F1 2022 @ 4k Ultra High settings, using AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 22.6.1 on the Radeon️ RX 6800 XT, versus the previous software driver version 22.5.2
