If you have a Radeon graphics card in your PC, AMD is looking to amp up your experience with the latest update to its Radeon software suite. Dubbed "Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition," the update brings a suite of new tools and features for monitoring GPU performance and more.

The biggest addition in the Adrenalin Edition update is the Radeon overlay, which gives you a way to monitor performance during gameplay. The overlay also gives you quick access to tools while gaming, like Radeon ReLive, AMD's tool for capturing and streaming gameplay. Speaking of ReLive, AMD has added chat integration, allowing you to interact with viewers while streaming on Facebook, Twitch, Mixer, YouTube, and more.

AMD is also tweaking some of its power-saving features with this update. For example, Radeon Chill, which is AMD's tool for regulating framerates to save power, now works with games based on the Vulkan API, as well as games based on DirectX 9, 10, 11, and 12. Radeon WattMan will also now let users save and access their custom GPU profiles on the fly.

Lastly, AMD has launched the AMD Link mobile app. Available on Android and iOS, the app acts as a sort of second-screen experience to complement the Radeon desktop software. From AMD:

The AMD Link dashboard features streaming and replay with Radeon ReLive, GPU and PC performance monitoring, an AMD news feed, and notifications for new driver releases, making it a valuable new tool to up your game.

If you're using an AMD GPU, you can check out all of these new features in the latest update to the Radeon software suite.

  • I bet NVidia will launch similar software next year.
    #amd is becoming more trendy than NVidia especially in mobile(notebook, laptop) graphics.
  • AMD in laptops is still something to STAY FAR AWAY FROM. Most OEMs crippled AMD's APU on purpose. AMD GPUs are far for as efficient as Nvidia's GPUs. Nvidia has GTX 1080 performance on laptops. At most, AMD has RX 560 level performance. And their laptop CPUs are in a "no-go" state until Ryzen based APUs launch.
