Square Enix created a new patch for Rise of the Tomb Raider that promises significant DirectX 12 performance improvements for users on AMD Ryzen CPUs:
The following changes are included in this patch

- Fix certain DX12 crashes reported by users on the forums.

- Improve DX12 performance across a variety of hardware, in CPU bound situations. Especially performance on AMD Ryzen CPUs can be significantly improved.

While we expect this patch to be an improvement for everyone, if you do have trouble with this patch and prefer to stay on the old version we made a Beta available on Steam, build 767.2, which can be used to switch back to the previous version.

We will keep monitoring for feedback and will release further patches as it seems required. We always welcome your feedback!
PC Perspective tested the claim and discovered the patch indeed delivers a big performance gain for 1080p HD gaming. The chip's performance improved by about 17 percent thanks to the Ryzen optimizations.
