AMD has released the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 17.12.1 driver

Enhanced Sync - Added support for Vulkan, GCN products and Multi-GPU

Enhanced Sync was introduced with Radeon Software 17.7.2, quickly becoming one of Radeon's most popular Radeon Software features by offering a "best of both worlds" scenario that offers the low latency of V-Sync Off gaming while almost eliminating Screen tearing like V-Sync. 

With Adrenalin, AMD has now added support for this innovative feature to all GCN-based Radeon GPUs, as well as support for games that use the Vulkan API. This will allow this feature to be utilized by a larger number of Radeon users over a larger number of games, making this one of the most noteworthy upgrades that are included in Adrenalin for users of older Radeon hardware.

Enhanced sync runs at an unlocked frame framerate and effectively sits between VSync and FreeSync, working to minimise latency and decrease stuttering. This technology will not offer an experience that is as good as FreeSync, but it is a marked improvement when looking at the user's gameplay experience. 

Beyond that Enhanced Sync will work with FreeSync when your display is working outside of its FreeSync range, allowing even FreeSync users to benefit from this technology. Please watch the video below to see AMD's own description of Enhanced Sync.

Nice. I did a fresh install of my OS last week after a Windows Update killed my install. Sure I could've fixed it but I was due a refresh anyway.

Either way I've been waiting for Adrenalin before uninstalling the default drivers Windows installs and installing proper ones. I was expecting a longer wait.

Looks like I'm going to have a fun night! We'll see if this can replace HWiNFO64 and RivaTuner.Quote

To be honest I'm surprised you were able to get so much written already.

Another site quickly tested three games and found performance hadn't increased very much from the previous driver, but it's possible Vega will be the one to benefit mostly.Quote

I wouldn't be surprised if this driver release has anything to do with Sapphires Nitro+ Vega card coming out shortlyQuote
