AMD Adrenalin 22.9.2: New graphics driver for Ryzen 7000 released


AMD has released a new version of its Adrenalin graphics driver, which for the first time officially supports the Ryzen 7000 (“Raphael”) and its integrated graphics unit, an AMD Radeon Graphics with 2 compute units and up to 2.2GHz supported. In addition, the driver is already “Game Ready” for the survival game Grounded.

Support for the iGPU of AMD Ryzen 7000

In the latest version AMD Adrenalin 22.9.2, AMD's graphics driver supports the integrated graphics unit (“iGPU”) of the new desktop processors Ryzen 9 7950X and Ryzen 7700X (test) based on the CPU and GPU architectures Zen 4 and RDNA 2 (test), which the editors already had in the gaming benchmark, as well as the two models Ryzen 9 7900X and Ryzen 5 7600X, which have not yet been tested.

According to the official release notes of Adrenalin 22.9 .2, which follows only a few days after Adrenalin 22.9.1, the optimizations and error corrections that are mandatory with each new release are also included in the new driver.

Support for:

  • AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series Processors
  • Grounded™
Known Issues:
