Rise of the Tomb Raider and ZBrush are two new applications that benefit from a significant increase in performance using processors Ryzen family, thanks to new software updates.
AMD has made available some information about applications that can better exploit the architectural features of the CPU Ryzen family, based on Zen architecture. Specifically we talk about Rise of the Tomb Raider and Pixologic ZBrush.
For Rise of the Tomb Raider AMD 770.1 flag as the new version of the game will allow us to achieve strong performance gains through better management of different cores, which are saturated through the use of parallel tasks of different size than the previous version of the game.
The benefit recorded by AMD comes up to 28% at 1920×1080 pixels resolution, using qualitative approach Medium; even with high quality, mostly dependent on the computing power of the video card, the leap forward in performance is net. Note how these tests AMD has chosen an NVIDIA GeForce 1080 GTX and not its own solution of the Radeon family.
The second application that has achieved a marked improvement in performance with software optimized specifically for Ryzen CPU is ZBrush. In this case the test, based on the positioning of lighting sources in a viewport in real-time, is passed from a processing time of 22.5 seconds to 11 milliseconds. This result confirms that it is essential, in the presence of new CPU architectures as is that of Zen Ryzen processors, proceed with a work of optimization of applications that can take advantage of not only the large number of integrated cores in these processors, but especially their peculiarities in terms of design and cache hierarchy.
