Tons of fixes for a lot of bugs have been implemented with the help of AMD's new Radeon software called ReLive Crimson Edition 17.4.1 that they recently launched. Several virtual reality and graphic-demanding games are being launched this time of year, which is why the manufacturer had to take action too.
AMD's New Radeon Software Fixes Bugs
The latest Radeon software by AMD is version 17.4.1 and it introduces the Display Driver version 17.10.1061. It also comes with a lot of bug fixes, which included a fix for the Radeon Settings that became unresponsive when a driver update was introduced. Another important fix was for a display flicker when desktop owners ran an application on windowed borderless mode on an AMD FreeSync Display, AnandTech reported.
AMD Radeon ReLive Crimson Edition 17.4.1 also made improvements of the Multi GPU scaling while playing the popular "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands." A system hang that was caused by a sudden unplugging of the AMD XConnect after installation of the software was fixed too.
AMD's New Radeon Software Supports Display Tech
Aside from the numerous fixes for different bugs, AMD's new Radeon software included support for several display technologies. These display supports include the DP1.4 HBR3 support, 8K 60Hz dual cable support, and the 8K 30Hz single cable support, according to the official website of AMD.
AMD Radeon Software Improves Older Radeon GPUs' VR Performance
Another important feature that the AMD Radeon software introduced was the support for Oculus Rift's Asynchronous Spacewarp for the Radeon R9 Fury series, the Radeon R9 390 series, and the Radeon R9 290 series. This also added the HTC Vive's Asynchronous Reprojection support for the Radeon RX 470 and the RX 480 cards that are running on Windows 10, Digital Trends reported.
AMD Radeon's new tech allows it to mend the problems that the PC and VR applications could not sustain the needed 90 frames per second in a game. With this new software update, it allowed players to have a fluid visual experience. The tech analyzes previous frames so that it can find a way to determine head movement, and render a predicted scene in a custom frame.
