Over the past few years, AMD's GPU drivers have transformed beyond recognition. The days of Catalyst are truly over, ushering in an era of Radeon Software and a new driver design philosophy that aims to deliver more features and improvements than ever before.
Today marks the release of Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition GPU driver, AMD's latest "big update" to their Radeon Software stack, bringing with it a large number of new features and upgrades.
Since the release of AMD's Radeon Software drivers, AMD has also been a huge supporter of open source software development, creating their GPUOpen program to allow developers to utilise and even suggest changes to AMD's open source technologies, promoting a co-operative development ecosystem.
One of the biggest things to come out of GPU Open is Radeon ProRender, which is a GPU based rendering technology that is now present in AutoDesk, Solidworks and Blender, delivering the ability to accelerate a lot of workloads on these creation platforms.
Since 2014 AMD has delivered colossal driver updates each year, with Adrenalin acting as one of AMD's biggest updates to date, offering performance improvements, additional features and more. Now without further ado, let's have a look at these new drivers!
