The AMD Commitment to Enterprise Quality

Ready for Demanding 24/7 Environments

AMD’s comprehensive stability testing process helps ensure that every AMD Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise driver delivers enterprise-grade quality and reliability to end-users. A third-party assessment 1 by QA Consultants 2 commissioned by AMD found that AMD has “the most stable graphics driver in the industry,” with results showing that AMD’s drivers are up to 11% more stable than Nvidia’s 3

“Historically, AMD and Radeon had a not as good rap on stability and drivers…but over the last 2 – 3 years, AMD has made a tremendous amount of investments into their driver quality, and I think this is a proof point and milestone that shows that they are.”

  4. According to QA Consultants’ results as further internally analyzed by AMD, AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise Edition 18.Q2 and the AMD Radeon™ Pro WX 3100 are up to 25% more stable than the NVIDIA Quadro® Desktop 391.58 ODE driver and the NVIDIA Quadro® P600 when tested with the Microsoft Windows HLK 64-bit CRASH stress test for 288 hours. Testing conducted by QA Consultants commissioned by AMD as of July 11th, 2018, and further internal analysis by AMD on a white box test system comprising of an Intel® Core™ 6-core i5-8400, 16GB RAM, Windows® 10 April 2018 Update 64-bit, AMD Radeon™ Pro WX 3100 graphics card and AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise Edition 18.Q2/NVIDIA Quadro® P600 graphics card and NVIDIA Quadro® Desktop 391.58 ODE driver. Benchmark Application: Microsoft Windows HLK 4 Hour 64-bit CRASH GPU Stress Test, ran for a total of 288 hours (for 12 days, 24 hours a day). AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise Edition 18.Q2 and the AMD Radeon™ Pro WX 3100: stable for 81.94% of the 288 hours. NVIDIA Quadro® Desktop 391.58 ODE driver and the NVIDIA Quadro® P600: stable for 56.94% of the 288 hours. Differential: 81.94-56.94= ~25% better stability with AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Enterprise Edition 18.Q2 and the AMD Radeon™ Pro WX 3100. Scores (pass/fail) are based on external lab measurements/ modeling and further internal analysis by AMD and may vary. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. Performance may vary based on use of the latest drivers. For more information, see pages 113, 119 of https://www.amd.com/system/files/documents/graphics-driver-quality.pdf. RPS-35
