AMD has decided to thoroughly renovate its Adrenalin Radeon software, which is the set of tools that surround its Radeon GPUs, which can be found integrated into its Ryzen SoCs and gaming graphics cards. With this, AMD has the intends to have a much better troubleshooting pipeline, in addition to adding new features that improve the experience of using its GPUs.
The changes described will be made from version 21.4.1 of the AMD Adrenalin drivers.
AMD Adrenalin: best feedback on bug fixes
In the presentation that AMD made a few days ago, which was about improvements to its Adrenalin software for its GPUs, they announced a series of improvements, starting with better communication when gathering information about possible errors. For this, they implemented the AMD bug reporting tool. A tool that will allow us, via an error dialog, to write to AMD what happened on the PC, this will allow AMD to efficiently collect information on the most common problems in the drivers.
The other part is the AMD Crash Defender, which keeps the rest of the system going. In this way, it is possible to close the application which failed due to AMD drivers without seeing the rest of the affected applications. This helps protect the system from a BSOD problem and therefore from a general crash.
For the community, AMD will open forums where users can discuss their issues, which together with the AMD Bug Reporting Tool will help them gather the information needed to troubleshoot future versions of AMD Adrenalin drivers.
AMD Link 4.0, el Cloud Gaming Privado
AMD Link is a feature of the Adrenalin software, which allows you to create remote streaming between PC and other device. Whether it’s a smartphone, tablet or even a Smart TV. What’s new in version 4.0 AMD created a version of Windows, which will allow us to invite our friends to our games, which will be broadcast from our PC. Think of it as a kind of private cloud server.
The operation of this service is very simple, a random SSH encoded key is generated on the user’s PC. Users who wish to connect remotely will only have to use this password to receive the streaming. Or the maximum bit rate is 50 Mbps and allows up to 144 Hz, but it will still depend on the PC rendering and encoding the scene.
the AMD Link 4.0 to ensure that there are no differences between users, he is responsible for the application “quality of service” where the latency and throughput conditions are equalized. This is important for online games, where players with better network conditions and more powerful systems may have advantages.
AMD Adrenalin: new capabilities for streaming
Another novelty that AMD has added in the new AMD Adrenalin is the ability to stream our games. This allows us to distribute our games on platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. Thanks to an application with a very easy-to-use interface.
Similar to AMD Link 4.0, the new streaming tool integrated into AMD Adrenalin adapts to the situation of the network in which we are in streaming. Also in case we don’t want to stream, this includes a video editor which allows us to edit the scenes without having to leave the Adrenalin Radeon software, which saves us from having to buy separate software if we want to make delayed videos based on our games.
At this time, only Windows 10 users will be able to use this feature.
Modular installation of AMD Adrenalin
One of the changes AMD has made to its Adrenalin software is the possibility to customize the application according to the needs of use. For this, it is now possible to install the application with the minimum and then add and remove modules according to what we need at any time. If we don’t want to go for the full installation. This avoids residues from previous installations which can cause breakdowns.
Performance tuning for Ryzen and Radeon
Another of the improvements that AMD has incorporated is the improvement of its performance monitoring tools, which no longer only measures the performance of AMD Radeon GPUs, but if you have a full set of AMD hardware, the tool is now available. Optimizing performance can also take Processor performance information.
Thus, the new AMD Adrenalin can also measure performance as a whole, which will allow Lisa Su to create gaming profiles not only around their AMD Radeon, but also for users who use full sets of processors, chipsets and GPUs. FROM AMD.
In addition, the new Adrenalin Radeon software allows us perform stress test to our AMD system, to find out if we have the hardware up to date or not, it is advisable to update it.
Vivid Gaming: automatic color correction
Another of the improvements AMD made to its driver is the automatic color adjustment capability which they dubbed Vivid Gaming, which is important for use in graphic design because monitor colors typically need to be recalibrated multiple times. Poor color calibration can also lead to visual issues in the games and media content we watch.
AV1 hardware playback
AV1 is the video format of the future, which gives much better picture quality than streaming formats like HEVC. The AMD RX 6000 GPUs already come with the necessary hardware to decode it in real time and the AMD drivers that will come with new versions of AMD Adrenalin already have everything needed for playing Netflix video and other services that use this. new video. codec.
