AMD debuts Radeon Software Crimson Edition

AMD has released its expected Radeon Software Crimson Edition earlier today for all users of Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. As you probably remember, we reported on the new software suite a few weeks ago.

The new software, AMD says, is designed to give users an exceptional new user experience, 12 new or enhanced features, up to 20 per cent more performance in 3D applications, adjustability that can nearly double generational energy efficiency and rock-solid stability across the full spectrum of AMD graphics products. This is the first release of the new Radeon Software Crimson Edition line so more such software will follow down the line.

“As the primary way that people interact with our products, our software deserves to be viewed as a top priority, and going forward that’s exactly what we’re doing, delivering easy-to-use software that is packed with real user benefits, starting with Radeon Software Crimson Edition,” said Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect, Radeon Technologies Group. “Radeon Technologies Group is laser-focused on the vertical integration of all things graphics, propelling the industry forward by driving performance per watt, creating innovative technologies and ensuring that the software supporting our GPUs is world class.”

The Radeon Software Crimson Edition brings a new and streamlined user interface that is lightning fast and that does not rely on Microsoft’s .NET platform anymore. The new software now starts up to 10 times faster and initializes displays 3 times faster. The software also brings more performance in 3D apps – now games load 33 per cent faster and run up to 20 per cent quicker. The Radeon Software Crimson Edition also offers the first public support of AMD’s LiquidVR technology – GCN’s Asynchronous Compute Engine helps dramatically improve frames per second (FPS), responsiveness and latency in Virtual Reality applications for an exceptionally smooth gaming experience on all GCN-based hardware. AMD also claims the new software offers unmatched stability.

You can now get the new Radeon Software Crimson Edition on AMD’s web site.
