AMD has released a new preview driver that introduces a range of exciting performance optimizations to its family of Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards.

10% improvements are nothing to sneeze at but AMD marketing is something else.

DX12 became the default WoW renderer in 2018.

Maybe if this driver supported cards that don't support DX12 but it doesn't.

Shadowlands was AMD sponsored for DX12 and ray-traced shadows.
FFXIV the bigger MMO is still DX11. <-- You can thank crap wow expansions for that.

Many software titles are still DX11.

But you're right the new hotness is DX12 why waste time on making DX11 better....
I think this is a case where the headline doesn’t really match the content. And I’m as guilty as most at just reading the headlines and jumping into the discussion.
What I think is interesting is all of the gains around SAM aka BAR. It used to be a detriment on some games but it was like 1-2% now it is just getting better and better... like all AMD drivers and such. At least so far.
