But here we are in 2017 with December only hours away and finally we have word on the next iteration of Radeon Software: Radeon Software Adrenelin. What does it bring to the table? Apparently ‘Empowering Gamers and Enriching the Visual Experience’. My hope is we finally see Vega running flat out with everything fully functional, we’re looking at you Draw Stream Binning Rasterizer. If DSBR is fully enabled, we could be looking at a sizeable performance boost and power consumption drop. Time will tell and we will too once we can conduct our own tests.

if true I'll take another look at vega

Pretty impressive release. Chocked full of options.

GTwannabe Dec 12, 2017 12:03 PM

Looking forward to global Radeon Chill. Worked great in games that supported it like Fallout 4.

I snagged them. Love the new monitoring app. Works great using my tablet to monitor the GPU.

Only messed around in Rainbow Six Siege for a bit and did 3dmark benchmark.
doesn't seem to hit the same core clock speeds (about 30 Mhz lower) , but has higher frame rate it seems. Also frame time seems better. (part of the latency fix they talked about??)

nutcrackr Dec 12, 2017 04:47 PM

Good to hear about rx 480 perf improvements. Happy to hear that relive has less overhead, although right now I don't even notice when it's enabled.

will be trying these tonight, probably go for a full uninstall.

when using enhanced vsync, vsync in-game needs to be off?

Not sure, I have freesync, so I haven't touched enhanced sync.

and by instabilty they mean your computer will hardlock running any 3d game....Andrenalin edition, seems very appropriate because my anger and andrenaline are peaking right now.

Any 3x1 eyefinty users be cautious but let us know how you go if you try

back to 17.11.4, though I might go back to 17.11.3 as that is the last driver that could reliably detect all monitors.

**Edited**
Sorry looks to have been a corrupted download or an install gone sideways.. Can anyone remind me why AMD doesn't include a SHA256 or better with their downloads and/or posted with the release notes? It's dead simple to use Windows powershell Get-FileHash command to generate numbers to compare.
HTML Code:

Video playback is still hot garbage too that incessant video/audio pause EVERY 2 seconds that also freezes the mouse. Present in every driver since 17.9.3 only the cycle's timing is different some drivers are 3-4 seconds as well as the duration varying to some degree.

In the new performance monitor tab there is a Sampling Interval slider the default monitoring is 2 if I slide it to the left to 1 the video/audio playback hitches every second and the duration of the pause is correspondingly short. Sliding it all the way to the right to 10 the pauses happen every 9-10 seconds and the duration of the hitches also lengthens as well as increasing the amount of time the cursor remains "paused".

It turns out if I toggle Power Efficiency to off on my main card makes the audio glitches stop and the visual glitching is almost imperceptible. Mainly shows if the camera is panning on a scene, without the audio cue you really have to be looking for it. I also noticed that under Settings>Apps&Features>Video Playback I toggled Automatically process video to enhance it to off default was on. Now from Radeon Settings video if I use either the Enhanced radio button or custom with just Fluid Motion Video to on. Playback is fine so far with the Win 10 netflix app and Chrome Xfinity streaming,Netflix and Amazon prime video as long as just use these settings. I haven't tried Firefox or Edge yet.

I managed to crash The Talos Principle vulkan benchmark when I tried to enable the overlay..Turns out disabling steam's overlay in the game properties fixes it.

I noticed some AtiRecord errors that were .net related in the events viewer. Turns out with the creator's update I only had 4.7 installed..fixed that through the control panel Programs>Programs and features -left pane-Turn Windows features on and off checked the rest of the boxes for older .net support no further AtiRecord errors.. did this before installing the re-downloaded drivers.
This fixed the inputmapper hid guardian related error as well that I was seeing

Other than the above I really like these new drivers/features.
Still had 1 instance of the Windows menu stop responding(left click). I had to reboot then log in out and back in again in order to clear it.

Hardwood Dec 13, 2017 05:42 AM

Seems to be working just fine here.
R6Seige is NOT having problems with explosions.
The overlay is almost as good as afterburner, maybe better in some ways i.e. it works, but needs opacity/background adjustment. I just tried it on R6S and it showed gpu util as 0% while playing and recording with relive which also worked really well.
Eyefinity setup properly, no crashes, no muss, no fuss.
I'm pretty darn impressed here.

Good Job AMD

haha! Guess I don't understand sync options!
I have a Freesync2 monitor, with freesync enabled on it;
the driver shows Freesync is On under Display menu;
Vsync is off in-game.

Now, what should I put 'Wait for Vertical Refresh' to? Always off, or Enhanced Sync? Thanks!!

Since you have a FreeSync 2 monitor. If I were you. I'd turn off "Wait for Vertical Refresh" and turned on FreeSync and of course, as well as you should ensure your monitor to enabled Freesync in its own menu.

For non-Freesync users. Use either v-sync or Enhanced Sync, or disabled...

Yep. You got it. Just turn off v-sync in game menu and then turn on enhanced sync in Adrenalin panel. That's it.

I would like to add, they recommend limiting your max frame rate to your max freesync fps range, otherwise you will have stutter etc when you go above/outside of the freesync range your monitor supports.

I think I might have a bug.

Whenever my screen goes sleeping I see that the power draw of my Vega goes up on the tach to around 40%, anyone else having this issue? It goes back down when I activate the screen again.

V1per Dec 14, 2017 12:00 PM

Love the new features, but I don't have a FreeSync monitor so I have to go into each game profile and manually disable it? or does AMD optimized know I don't have a one?

Why no global disable?

pax Dec 14, 2017 01:52 PM

Just wondering if anyone tried this driver with the new agesa 1007 F10 bios from Gigabyte yet. Any issues?

Theres also new Ryzen chipset drivers out. 17.40

http://support.amd.com/en-us/downloa...%2010%20-%2064

Argoon1981 Dec 14, 2017 04:26 PM

Installed them and everything seems to work fine here, old and new games but i didn't tested all my games.
Btw didn't enhanced sync work in all GCN GPU's? I can't seem to find the option on my end, i have a R9 270X (GCN 1.0).

LordHawkwind Dec 14, 2017 05:23 PM

Mixed bag with these drivers TBH. They wouldn't run the Heaven or Valley benchmark (with overlay on) and had to soft reset both times. That then seemed to bork Radeon settings completely as it reported my HBM2 as 800mhz and I had to over clock it to 945 and my scores were way down.

I had done a clean install so I booted into safemode and uninstalled using the latest version of DDU and then reinstalled. All my games, with the overlay on seem fine, temps are good and averages are there or thereabouts as are the minimums. The high fps are now nearer to my freesync monitor of 144hz whereas in some games withe the 17.11.4's they were much higher. I presume this is radeon chill at work. Gameplay is very smooth so not to concerned.

I'm not too bothered about benchmarks so as long as they work in my games I'll keep them.

It is on the HOME screen of the AMD settings, bottom button says "AMD Link". Click on it, and you have to add the device (download the app for android from Play store, or apple store for Apple).

Some benchmark programs don't play well with overlays, even MSI afterburner/RivaTurner is hit and miss, specially after driver updates.

Did you reboot after install? Have had that 800 Mhz memory reading every driver with Vega when I don't reboot. Just reboot should correct it.

Chill has nothing to do with increasing your Frame rate, It is about keeping temps down and using less power, not increasing performance. However, it says Chill is on by default, but mine was default off, which is where I left it.

edit: Always, Always do DDU with a major driver update/change like this, Never just install over the top of previous drivers.
