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.

I wish Nvidia had something like the Chill feature, I think it's genius especially in games that don't require super high frame rates.

I tried it in WoW when I temporarily had the RX-580 and it was superb.Quote

Well I didn't buy the RX-580 for mining, I bought mine at the end of March, I just wasn't happy with the general performance so got a refund a week later.Quote

Well I have been saying drivers are very very important. Low and behold.... Almost as good as the driver from Oct 2011. I'd expect something like that after Vega though.

Just installed without any issues. In fact they improved it somewhat. Older drivers used to mess with my audio settings after an uninstall/reinstall. Just uninstalled this and installed and it didn't touch any of it. No more fiddling aroundQuote
