Stardock and Oxide have announced that the first set of optimizations for AMD Ryzen CPUs are now available. Running Ashes of Singularity DirectX 12, the optimized performance is shows a 30 percent increase in “Average Frames Per Second All Batches” in-game benchmark performance. The performance increase claim was tested on an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processor paired with dual-channel DDR4 memory running at 2933 MHz. The benchmark was run at 1920 x 1080 resolution with a “high preset” image quality setting. The minimum performance boost increased up to 26% under the “Average Frames Per Second Large Batches” test while the biggest leap in performance came from the “Average Frames Per Second Normal Batches”, which had a 33 percent boost.
“Unleashing the full high-performance value proposition of the ‘Zen’ core and AMD Ryzen CPUs requires close collaboration with software, hardware, and game developers. The results Stardock and Oxide have achieved show impressive gains, We’re very pleased with the results, not just because of the statement it makes about incredible AMD Ryzen performance headroom, but more importantly what it means for fans of ‘Ashes’ – a state-of-the art implementation of DirectX® 12 in a real-time strategy game.” –Jim Anderson, SVP and GM of the Computing and Graphics Business at AMD.
“I’ve always been vocal about taking advantage of every ounce of performance the PC has to offer. That’s why I’m a strong proponent of DirectX 12 and Vulkan® because of the way these APIs allow us to access multiple CPU cores, and that’s why the AMD Ryzen processor has so much potential. As good as AMD Ryzen is right now – and it’s remarkably fast – we’ve already seen that we can tweak games like ‘Ashes of the Singularity’ to take even more advantage of its impressive core count and processing power. AMD Ryzen brings resources to the table that will change what people come to expect from a PC gaming experience.” — Stardock and Oxide CEO Brad Wardell,
The Ryzen optimized update to Ashes of Singularity is available for download on Steam starting on March 30, 9AM. New users who purchase Ashes of Singularity will receive the updated version as the standard model.
