New patch for Ashes of the Singularity improves CPU performance over 30%

After the release of the Ryzen 7 CPUs, Stardock has been working closely with AMD in order to improve Ashes of the Singularity’s overall performance. As a result of that collaboration, Stardock released a new patch for it that improves CPU performance over 30%.

Now before continuing, know that both Intel’s and AMD’s CPUs will see benefits from this latest update for Ashes of the Singularity.

As Stardock’s Brad Wardell claimed, Nitrous is an engine that scales up and gets more powerful as you throw more CPU cores at it. As such, and given the fact that eight-core CPUs are now more mainstream thanks to the Ryzen CPUs, Stardock has implemented a number of CPU optimizations that make the game run better on both Intel and AMD.

I guess we were right when we claimed that the upcoming “Ryzen patches” will also benefit Intel’s CPUs.

It will be interesting to see whether other developers will release similar patches that will enable their games to take better advantage of multiple CPU cores.
