AMD teases their Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition GPU driver

2017 has been a transformative year for the PC industry, especially when it comes to AMD, bringing competition back to both the consumer and enterprise CPU market with Ryzen as well as a compelling offering in the GPU/compute offering with their RX Vega series.

To finish this year, AMD's Radeon Software Group will release their new Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition driver, the next big update for AMD's GPU drivers. At this time it is unknown what will be included in this update, though AMD has been telling us to expect big things since the release of Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.7.2 driver back in July. 

All AMD has officially revealed this driver is the following quote.    

Radeon Software is where visible and invisible have been woven together to empower gamers and enrich the visual experience.  

 

This new driver's name originates with Adrenalin Rose, which is famous for its deep red colouration. This title is ideal for Radeon, but the question is whether or not this Adrenalin driver is enough to get our hearts pumping?

Joker Productiions saw a large (but not large enough to beat the 1080) performance increase going from 17.10.1 to the beta driver 17.11.4 with his Powercolor Vega 64 review sample.Quote

Though he did use Radeon Software 17.10.1 the first time, which I think is the same driver Jayz2Cents used and got odd results with his early RX Vega 64 Strix.

Looking at our results and Joker old ones there was a clear gap, his were way lower despite the fact that he claimed to have overclocked his GPU.

He does come up with the excuse that it was because of the PowerColor review guide that he did not use newer drivers, but any reviewer worth his salt would have checked both himself to see if everything was alright.Quote

Gotta commend Radeon's marketing department, they've dressed shipping unfinished drivers as FineWine™ Technology. Quote

So it's basically just a skin change from Crimson Quote
