Twitch streaming and DVR features come to the AMD Gaming Evolved Client

Blog Post created by samantha.davis on May 12, 2015

Since launching a few months ago, the AMD Gaming Evolved Client is now used by over 8 million gamers around the world. That means that over 8 million gamers are:


  • Benefitting from automatic gameplay and progress tracking;
  • Earning Reward Points that can be redeemed for sweepstakes entries, swag and merchandise;
  • Getting access to one-click crowdsourced game setting optimizations for over 200 games;
  • Putting all their games in one place for easy access and maintenance.


Today we’re happy to announce some new features that will bring even more gaming excitement to those millions of users. These features are BETA additions to the AMD Gaming Evolved Client. They will be completely polished soon, but in the meantime we invite you to try them out.


The first of these features is digital video recording, or DVR. Just like the popular feature many people use with their TVs, the new DVR feature is always recording your gameplay, making up to the last 10 minutes available for replay, saving and sharing. The next time you bust an astounding move, you’ll be able to share it with all your friends. The feature is intended to be left always on, so you never have to worry about forgetting it, and the overhead required to keep it running in the background is minimal. It’s a terrific way of saving and sharing your best moments, including the ones you didn’t plan for.


As great as DVR is, sometimes a recording is not what you’re after and only live action will do. For that, we’re happy to announce that Twitch is now integrated into the AMD Gaming Evolved Client. Twitch is the leading platform for live game streaming. Now you can use it to share live gameplay, broadcast tournaments and show your skills to the world, all from within the AMD Gaming Evolved Client.

To top it all off, this newest version of the AMD Gaming Evolved Client (version 3.9) implements some exciting improvements to the user interface, making it easier to use than ever before, and seamlessly integrating the newest features.


Remember, the DVR and Twitch streaming features are in beta, so there are still some kinks to work out. But we invite you to try the new features and let us know what you think. We hope you find the new additions as exciting as we do.
