AMD today released a major upgrade to its advanced software suite for Radeon graphics, Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition, designed to give gamers deeply immersive gameplay while engaging with their friends and the gaming community.

Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition introduces the all-new Radeon Overlay, a seamless user interface designed to enable gamers to monitor their GPU performance without ever leaving the game, tailor their gameplay to their unique preferences and connect with their friends, all in one place. AMD is also launching the AMD Link mobile app, being made available to millions of iOS and Android users. A powerful complement to Radeon desktop software, AMD Link serves as a “second screen” for monitoring GPU performance and PC system info, enabling gamers to easily share their greatest gaming moments, and keeping them informed about AMD’s latest updates. A wide range of features including Radeon Chill, Radeon WattMan, Enhanced Sync and Radeon ReLive – all part of Radeon Software Core Technologies – have also been updated to deliver expanded performance tuning and gaming optimizations.

The new Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 17.12.1 drivers are available online at the AMD driver download page.

Out of nowhere, NVIDIA has revealed the NVIDIA Titan V today at the 2017 Neural Information Processing Systems conference, with CEO Jen-Hsun Huang flashing out the card on stage. A mere 7 months after Volta was announced with the Tesla V100 accelerator and the GV100 GPU inside it, NVIDIA continues its breakneck pace by releasing the GV100-powered Titan V, available for sale today. Aimed at a decidedly more compute-oriented market than ever before, the 815 mm2 behemoth die that is GV100 is now available to the broader public.

Every year, AMD regales its users with a new major version of their driver suite, with added features and, usually, increased performance. In 2015, AMD introduced the Radeon Crimson driver release, which included a hefty performance package for some major titles, the new Radeon Settings design interface, and increased stability over the previous mega-release, Catalyst Omega. Last year, we were treated to the introduction of the ReLive, LiquidVR, and Radeon Chill features. AMD is keeping up with its annual overhauls, even after former RTG head, Raja Koduri, left the company for bluer pastures.

Twitter user Blaze #BlazeK_AMDRT shared some screenshots over Twitter which show that the new driver release will, among other things, include an OSD for performance metrics – not unlike what NVIDIA is offering with its GeForce Experience suite. However, AMD will likely keep ringing the “no registration necessary” bell to increase attractiveness of its software suite over NVIDIA’s. From the screenshots, however, it seems that AMD’s suite will offer more registers than NVIDIA, to polls like VRAM, CPU usage, among others. AMD’s track record with software and drivers has been much improved since Raja Koduri took the helms of RTG, with a much steadier driver release schedule, and pre-emptive releases introducing support for the latest and greatest games. It’s at least comforting to see that there’s no sign of that reverting after he left the company.

AMD has released the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.11.2 beta software. The drivers come with launch-day optimization for “Star Wars: Battlefront II.” The drivers also fix a handful issues related to Radeon ReLive game video capture/streaming software, in which chroma artifacts would show up on the screen, and an issue which caused recording to fail when switching between borderless fullscreen and fullscreen modes. The drivers also address WattMan issues, in which undervolted values wouldn’t correctly apply on some “Polaris” (RX 400 and RX 500 series) GPUs, and underclocked GPU memory values not reflecting in the user-interface.

NVIDIA today has released the latest version of their GeForce Game Ready Graphics Driver. The new 388.31 drivers are optimized for the latest AAA games, “Star Wars Battlefront II,” and “Injustice 2″. NVIDIA has also added the corresponding 3D Vision profiles for both titles. In addition, they’ve included SLI profiles for Star Wars: Battlefront II and EVE Valkyrie – Warzone as well. According to them, the 388.31 drivers improve Destiny 2 performance by up to a staggering 53%. However, the more notable fixes include the micro-stuttering issue when using GPU monitoring tools to monitor GPU power and the driver not picking up GeForce GTX 1080 on the Alienware Amplifier.
