Since the release of Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition, AMD has delivered some significant performance boosts to their GPU hardware, especially in modern gaming titles.
AMD has compared their Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 16.12.1 driver to their new Radeon Software Adrenalin driver, revealing an average performance gain of 15% in AMD's chosen titles. Sadly AMD offered no data to compare these results with each game's day-1 driver, or Radeon Software 17.11.4, suggesting that these gains were achieved over 2017 rather than with Radeon Software Adrenaline Alone.
Since the release of Radeon Software 17.7.2 AMD has focused on reducing the latency of DirectX 11 titles, making games more responsive in a way that framerate analysis simply cannot measure.
This new driver offers further latency improvements to DirectX 11 titles, latencies that were already decreased by as much as 31% with Radeon Software 17.7.2. This decrease in latency will make games feel more responsive, allowing players to react faster and have a more enjoyable gaming experience.
Adrenalin also offers users of Radeon GPUs the ability to support Multi-GPU in a Borderless Windowed mode, which will allow the performance of Multi-GPU systems to be better utilised in modern games.
With Radeon, Software Adrenalin AMD has also added support for Vulkan in their Frame Rate Target Control feature, which will allow gamers to set a maximum framerate target to reduce power consumption and noise output while maintaining the user's desired framerate.
With Radeon Software Adrenalin, AMD has also implemented a Compute Profile to deliver enhanced performance in specific workloads. This mode is particularly useful while mining cryptocurrencies, allowing Radeon Hardware to offer an improved hashrate.
