Set up a gaming profile on your AMD card:

1. Make sure you've downloaded and installed the latest drivers for your card as well as the AMD Catalyst Control Center.
2. Right-click any free area of your Desktop, and select AMD Catalyst Control Center.
3. On the AMD Catalyst Control Center window, access the Gaming tab, and click 3D Application Settings.
4. Click the Add button in the 3D Application Settings window, then browse to the .exe of the game you'd like to make a profile for. Example: To add a profile for Sims 4, you'd select "TS4.exe or TS4_x64" within C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin
5. Click Open, then confirm the "Do you want to override the pre-defined profile?" prompts.
6. To save this profile, click on “TS4.exe or TS4_x64” and then Save. Accept the overwrite when prompted.

PS! You may need to adjust one of your new profile's settings in order to save.


Your gaming profile is now set up! Learn more about what you can do within the AMD Catalyst Control Center, and stay connected with the AMD Gaming Evolved client.
