Boost Your Productivity

AMD Radeon™ Pro Software Keeps Getting Faster

The continuous performance optimizations in every Radeon™ Pro Software driver update, in part thanks to the close technology collaborations we have with ISV application developers, means we’re working hard to deliver improved productivity in your applications every time you update your driver.

Real-World Performance

Leading The Competition in 3D Modeling Design Steps

AMD leads the competition in our internal SOLIDWORKS® performance testing that realistically reflect the 3D modeling steps that professionals take when using CAD applications -- instead of simply rotating, panning, and zooming a 3D model, our test uses 20 modeling steps, including sketching, combining, extruding, and cutting.
