The competition behind PC Gamers’ preference hasn’t stopped and will never stop. AMD and Intel are both still competing to be the best in terms of performance for PC users. This competition usually demands that companies up their ante in terms of updates to drivers for their products. To keep up, AMD reveals a new update for their Radeon products: Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition.
AMD announced the upcoming set of drivers that will now take the place of Radeon Crimson ReLive. Crimson ReLive had a very successful performance for users, by the way, with a 90% user satisfaction rating for a year.
Now, there aren’t any details about what Adrenalin will bring to the table, at least not yet. About the only thing AMD is sharing at this point is that the driver update is named after Adrenalin Rose, which is apparently a florist favorite.
However, that doesn’t mean that they won’t keep the same influx of updates to provide a better experience for users. Namely driver updates for whenever a new game is released and needs optimization tweaks for Radeon products.
This will just continue the tradition of keeping users happy and satisfied. This has been happening through 70 software releases, launch day support for more than 75 games and over 50 new or enhanced features, with more than 250 million downloads across the globe.
Now, Adrenalin also marks the first time AMD provides support without Raja Koduri. The man has left the company during his Sabbatical to join forces with Intel. Koduri led AMD’s Radeon Technologies Group since it was formed two years ago. This left big shoes to fill now that the lead is gone.
However, this won’t seem to be stopping AMD at all as their update plan continues to be the same as previously. The Adrenalin name will carry AMD’s driver releases through the bulk of 2018, just as Crimson ReLive did in 2017, Crimson in 2016, and Omega in 2015.
