In the System window, you will see the version of Radeon Software running on your computer. Click on the Search for updates option to check for available driver updates.
You can also set the Search for updates option to Automatic and enable the Discharge Drivers and Software option.
Sometimes outdated Windows versions are also one of the reasons behind low frame rate or in-game stuttering issues. The solution, in this case, is to download the latest Windows update.
To do this, open the Settings menu with win + me, or by using any of the other methods to open Settings in Windows. Choose windows update in the left pane, and then click the Search for updates option. Windows will now check for and download any available updates.
Along with downloading the latest Windows and graphics driver update, you should disable the ULPS (ultra low power state) in the Registry. To do this, follow the steps below:

The most beneficial AMD Radeon configuration for the best gaming experience
Now that you’ve downloaded the latest graphics and Windows update on your computer, let’s look at the changes you need to make to your AMD Radeon settings.
1. Configure global graphics settings
The first thing to look at is the global graphics settings. Adjusting the global graphics settings will automatically apply the changes to all games installed on your computer.
To access the Global Graphics section, open AMD Radeon Software, click the gear icon, and then switch to the Graphics eyelash.
The first setting you can enable is the Radeon Image Sharpness, which will ensure that you get the best in-game clarity. Usually this setting works fine for most games, but can sometimes make things worse.
So, you need to check the game performance after enabling this setting. If everything looks good, you just need to enable this setting permanently.
The sharpness level it’s something that will be different for different games. In battle royale games like Warzone and Valorant, set the level around 80-90%.
But while playing casual games like Forza or FIFA, keep the sharpness level between 40 to 50%. Note that the lower the saturation level, the better gaming performance you will get.
The Wait for it to update vertically option should be set to Off unless specified by applicationespecially if you plan to enable the AMD Radeon FreeSync option. Otherwise, consider setting it to always off.
Now click on the dropdown icon before the Advanced option.
Select the smoothed Y smoothed option to Use app settings Y multisampling option, respectively.
You should reset the shader cache if you haven’t done so in the recent past. To do this, click on the perform reset option next to reset shader cache, and click Yes to the notice that appears.
That is all. These were all the changes you need to make in the Graphics tab. Other than the changes mentioned above, leave all other options on the Graphics tab to their default values.
2. Change display and video settings
AMD Radeon Software offers several display settings that you can configure for comparatively better gaming performance. These are the changes you need to make in the Display tab of Radeon Software.
To get started, enable the AMD FreeSync option. Dynamically updates your screen in sync with your game’s current frame rate. Please note that these settings only apply to FreeSync compatible monitors.
if you are using Radeon Super-resolutionyou can enable the GPU scaling option. Otherwise, keep it at its default setting, i.e. Switched off.
You must enable the integer scaling option, especially if you regularly play 8-bit style titles like Zelda, Pokémon, or Terraria.
The Screen Color Enhancement it’s another choice of personal preference. You can set it to vivid games if you want better color vibrancy in games.
Now, enable the custom color option and apply the following changes:
- color temperature – 6500
- Bright – 6
- Hue – 0
- Contrast – 100
- Saturation -170
Then switch to the Audio Video eyelash. Here you can choose the video profile you prefer. While different profiles offer different viewing experiences, we recommend choosing the classic cinema option.
3. Adjust your preferences
As the name suggests, the Preferences tab is all about personal preferences and it will be different for different users. But for the best gaming performance, we recommend applying the following settings:
- In-game Overlay – Disabled
- Web navigator – Disabled
- system tray Menu – Enabled
- Advertisement – Disabled
- toast notification – Disabled
- always on top – Disabled
- Animation and Effects – Disabled
