It has been two years since AMD doubled down on driver support and began rolling out Radeon Software: Crimson Edition. In 2016, the company decided to stick with Crimson for a bit longer, launching Radeon Software Crimson Relive. Now this year, AMD is going to start rolling out its next generation of Radeon Software ‘Adrenaline Edition’.
With Radeon Software Adrenaline Edition, AMD will be continuing its commitment to release major driver updates annually, as well as timely driver updates to coincide with major game releases. According to AMD, Radeon Software Crimson Edition (2015) received the highest user satisfaction rating of any AMD software ever, while Crimson Relive Edition maintained a 90 percent user satisfaction rating for 12 months in a row. AMD will be hoping to continue that streak with Adrenalin Edition.
There is not much else known about the Adrenalin Edition update at this point. However, the teaser video above does say that we should see it launch in December. Hopefully this driver release will bring some extra optimizations to help bring a performance boost to some of AMD’s newer graphics cards.
KitGuru Says: I’ve had limited experience with Crimson ReLive Edition this year, though I did use Crimson Edition heavily throughout 2016. Are many of you currently using an AMD GPU? What are you hoping to see AMD bring to the table with its Adrenalin Edition software?
