AMD's Radeon Technologies Group has recently released a new software suite called Crimson ReLive Edition, adding several new features and improving performance. The Polaris as well as older Fury GPUs see a performance increase of “up to 8%”, so if you have, for example, a RX 480, you should definitely see a boost in frame rate in your favorite game.

Games look prettier as well, and the new drivers also result in sharper images in Virtual Reality. Apart from the performance enhancements from the drivers accompanying the Crimson Relive software suite, AMD has also added a ton of extras, from a feature that keeps your GPU cool by analyzing a game’s performance and adjusting the frame rate, to adding high-dynamic-range (HDR) support and a tool that will make life that much easier for streamers.

Not to be outdone by NVIDIA, who released the new GeForce Experience earlier this year, AMD has done a spectacular job, giving those who own a Radeon graphics card more options and features to use. You can read the full Crimson Relive update notes:

  • Radeon ReLive - Capture, stream and share your greatest moments and gaming wins on your computer system with Radeon ReLive.
