Conclusion - An Adrenalin Rush of new features
There is a lot of information to cover here, so much so that we haven't even mentioned some aspects to AMD's Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 18.12.2 driver, from their enhanced Radeon Chill support to Radeon Overlay's enhanced feature set and the addition of USR support on 21:9 monitors.
In all, AMD's Radeon Software Adrenalin software supports 23 new or updated features, easily making this release the most feature-rich upgrade to AMD's Radeon Software ecosystem to date.
Reading through the enhancements list alone, it is hard not to be impressed with what RTG has accomplished here, implementing a feature list so large that every Radeon user will find something new and useful with Radeon Software 18.12.2, making AMD's drivers more of an asset than ever before.
A lot has changed since AMD transitioned to their Radeon Software mindset, so much so that it is hard to believe that AMD's Catalyst drivers were one considered a downside to Radeon products. Now AMD has features and options in their drivers that none of their competitors can match, requiring no log-ins, usernames or other nonsense to access every aspect of Radeon Software.
On the performance side, there will no doubt be people who are unimpressed, but that's not what this driver release is about. When looking at titles like Deus Ex Mankind Divided and Call of Duty: WWII as well as their ReSX program, we can see that AMD's optimisation efforts extend beyond a game's release date, showcasing AMD's continuous drive to improve their software. Beyond that, AMD's automatic overclocking and undervolting tools will no doubt enable more Radeon users to achieve new performance milestones, which is a big deal for those who typically find overclocking to be a daunting process.
Over the coming days, we plan to have a deeper look into some of the aspects of AMD's Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition drivers, especially into AMD's automatic overclocking features on RX Vega graphics hardware.
