Going to be really interesting seeing Intel's next gen lineup with all these fixes in the bag.

Just Cause 4* (DX11) Up to 268% average FPS uplift at 1080p with Very High settings
Holy cheese crackers batman!! What was so wrong you were leaving near triple the performance on the table?

Most of these seem to be because the game just wasn't working in the first place. Stutterfest etc..

This is why I hate these "Arc improves performance by X% for game Y" news posts. It make it look like they achieved some amazing performance improvements, but when the baseline FPS was low, improving by X% becomes a bit misleading. For example: lets say game Y ran at 10 fps before the new driver and now it has 30% improvement. Great, no? But in practice it means that it went from 10 fps to 13 fps, which sounds a lot less impressive. So 268% improvement sounds spectacular, but for 10 fps before it just means that it now runs at 36.8 fps. So without some actual FPS numbers these percentages don't mean much.

I'm guessing Battlemage is going to be "just okay". I don't think it will be good enough to cause AMD to lower prices but I don't think it'll be a stupid purchase either. Intel still has quite a lot to catch up on, enough so that I think there is still going to be a substantial amount of room for improvement in Battlemage's architecture (improvements that just didn't yet present themselves or there wasn't time to fix). For the record, I don't necessarily find people who bought Alchemist to be stupid, at least those who knew they were just getting an experimental product. Anyone who bought it thinking it'll be a budget beast in a couple years is likely going to have regrets. Celestial I believe is where Intel is going to be pretty much caught-up in both architecture and drivers, and where they will be truly competitive.

I completely agree - they're effectively just saying "this game is now playable". I get how they wouldn't want to phrase it that way, because they're not trying to say so directly that their product is broken/incomplete, but having astronomical performance improvements like 268% is kind of implying that anyway. When the only thing that changes is your software and you have exponentially better performance, it really highlights how broken things are. Kind of funny how it's more impressive to hear something like a 10% improvement, because that implies that the drivers were already in acceptable shape but now just further optimized.

Battlemage will make RDNA4 irrelevant.

I hope its competitive. Alchemist really wasnt.

I don't expect it to be anywhere near the top 30% of performers when it comes out, but less also will do it if they can get stability and compatibility up to par with the competition. REBAR being a requirement also becomes less and less of a "BUT IT NEEDS THIS TO BE GOOD!!!" screech, as it becomes a default option.
