AMD's Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.7.2 driver is a major release in every sense, delivering gamers new and updated features, increased performance and a boat load of bug fixes.
This new release also provides AMD with a great opportunity to gain additional support from developers, with their new Radeon GPU profiler promising to facilitate console-like optimisations on Radeon hardware.
The Radeon Technologies Group has been able to provide their users with another major leap within their driver ecosystem, enhancing their Radeon Settings for ease of use and decreasing the performance overhead of features like Radeon ReLive.
One of this most important changes to AMD's Radeon Software drivers is their work on decreasing game response times, which will increase the responsiveness of games while having no noted effect on framerate. This shows that AMD is dedicated not only to offering great in-game performance but also to offering a great gameplay experience, a sentiment that is also shown with the release of AMD's "Enhanced Sync" option.
The timing of this driver is also significant, given its proximity to the launch of the Radeon RX Vega. This driver shows a clear commitment to their existing users, that they will continue to improve existing products and that they will not be locking these new features to Vega exclusively. Not once did AMD mention Vega in their driver briefing, or in their end notes, with all of these Radeon Software improvements coming to AMD's existing GPU lineup.
