Over the past year, AMD has been on a journey of exploration and discovery. We’ve spoken to and listened to many of our biggest fans, as well as those who support other products.  Through those discussions and feedback, we’ve been able to fine-tune our software and build new features to support the needs of gamers like you.  In 2019 we have introduced groundbreaking new features like Radeon Image Sharpening and Radeon Anti-Lag to help you feel more immersed and connected to your game, we released 43 day-0 game drivers to ensure you’ve got the best driver possible for your new game, and we’ve improved performance by up to 12% over the course of this year1; at the same time continuously looking for other ways to improve, overcome, and remove barriers.

 

Today we’re excited to release the all NEW Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition. Completely rearchitected from the ground up, this latest version of Radeon Software introduces a redesigned and reimagined interface that places hot, in-demand features at your fingertips.

 

Modern. Accessible. Powerful.

 

 

The new Radeon Software experience is second to none. Our app has been completely reworked to provide you with a clean, modern and easy-to-use interface where you can quickly check your game stats, performance reports, driver updates, and much more - all from one convenient location. Access all your games directly from Radeon Software rather than trying to figure out which game store to start whenever you want to play your game. Get full functionality of our software directly in game by using the hotkey ALT+R.  Adjust your graphics settings from the full screen interface, stream content to the social media platform of your choice, or even browse the web for walkthroughs and tutorials using our new built-in browser. Once you enter your game, you don’t have to leave it.

 

Our Radeon Software App also has the ability to adapt to what you’re doing.  For example, if you’re on your desktop, the home screen that you see will be different from the one you’d see if you were in game.  Functions will appear that are appropriate for each scenario so you can easily take advantage of all the powerful features we have to offer.

 

Integer Scaling is Now Available

We like to involve our community as much as possible, and one of our most user requested features over the course of this year was to implement integer scaling into Radeon Software. Integer scaling scales on-screen images from one pixel to four pixels (or more). With Adrenalin 2020 Edition, you now have access to this feature that delivers sharp, retro visuals so you can play your favorite classic games on today’s modern displays.

 

 

Turbocharge Your Game with Radeon Boost

The last thing you want to be, is bogged down when an enemy is firing at you. You need a system that is super responsive and fast so you can easily find and track down your target. Radeon Boost delivers that extra bit of performance and fluidity when fast motion via mouse input is detected. Radeon Boost dynamically lowers the resolution of the entire frame to allow for an average 23% increase in the performance of select titles, with little impact to quality2.

 

 

Play Your PC Games Anywhere in the Connected World with Your Mobile Device

Last year, we unshackled desktop PC gaming by allowing you to stream your games from your PC to your mobile devices via your wi-fi connection so you could play your game almost anywhere at home. Starting with this release, you can now take your device on the road and as long as you have a connection to the internet, you can keep playing that same game while on a road trip or at the beach.  Available for free to download to your Android devices today and Apple devices on December 23rd.

 

A Few More Updates

Radeon Image Sharpening and Radeon Anti-Lag have also received some new updates for this new release, with expanded support across more products, (GCN-based Radeon discrete graphics and Ryzen 2000 series APUs and newer), as well as adding the option to enable these features globally across all titles, or on a case-by-case basis. For Radeon Image Sharpening, we’ve added support for Microsoft DirectX 11 games, along with the ability to control the degree of sharpness so you can tweak the setting to your desired levels, and for Radeon Anti-Lag, we’ve added support for Microsoft DirectX 9 games on pre-RX 5000 series graphics.

 

This blog barely scratches the surface of what Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition is truly capable of doing. Be sure to check out our companion blogs to this release that take you through the new performance tuning section, the new streaming capabilities and the ability to play PC games virtually anywhere in the world.

Up until now, performance tuning was one of those things that was best left up to the experts. Pushing the limits of your graphics card can be intimidating to a lot of people.  With the latest Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition, we’ve taken away some of that complexity by adding simplified controls and automatic presets for novice users, while also providing advanced tools for experts who want full control of their GPU.

 

Let’s begin with the new user experience for performance metrics, where gamers can view vital system and performance information at a glance.

 

Metrics

 

Performance Metrics Screen

 

1. Metrics Overview: Allows users to view multiple different system metrics at once. Users can click different metrics here to view more detailed metrics on each of these items. Users can also show/hide specific items for the Performance Metrics Overlay.

 

2. Metrics Details:  Once a user has chosen a metric from the overview column, they can view more detailed statistics for each of those metrics in this window.

 

Performance Tuning

Performance Tuning now has a fully automatic view. The automatic view allows more entry level or novice users access to features that allow them to automatically configure their performance tuning using Radeon Software features without having to learn how to overclock*. Some of these features include Auto Undervolt GPU, Auto Overclock GPU and Auto Overclock VRAM. Feature availability is dependent on the system hardware and some Radeon graphics products may not have all features listed.

 

Simplified Performance Tuning Screen

 

 Auto Tuning Features

The auto tuning features step through an algorithm that runs a workload on your graphics process while it fine tunes your overclock to determine stable settings based on your chosen tuning option. Once instability is detected on your GPU in the algorithm, we dial back to the best previous stable values and apply those. This is done on a per system basis so users can expect to get a good stable overclock that suits their own personal system.  The overall process only takes about a minute to complete and should be done without any applications open for the best experience possible.

 

  • Undervolt GPU: Attempts to perform an undervolt while maintaining close to stock performance for your graphics product. This can potentially increase performance per watt and save power.
  • Overclock GPU: Attempts to perform an overclock of your graphics engine frequency. This can potentially increase performance in games that are GPU bound.
  • Overclock VRAM: Attempts to perform an overclock of your video memory. This can potentially increase performance in games that are memory bound.

 

 

 

Tuning Control (Manual): Performance Tuning also has a new manual view. The manual view allows for much deeper customization of your graphics product and overclocking. The manual view contains detailed controls for GPU Tuning, Fan Tuning, VRAM Tuning and Power Tuning. Each of these views can be expanded to customize or tune each individual part of your graphics product and some can be expanded to provided more advanced and fine grain controls.

  

Once you’ve chosen a specific category you’d like to tune you can expand the options to see all the controls available to tune. From there you can control or modify any items you’d like, hit apply to save your settings and you’re good to go with your overclock!

 

Breakdown of the functions below:

 

  • GPU Tuning: Allows you to access controls for voltage and frequency. For newer AMD graphics products this advanced view includes controlling a voltage/frequency curve to help define how your graphics product behaves at any given engine clock.
  • Fan Tuning: Allows you to access controls for fan speed tuning and fan curve. At the basic level this includes controls for max fan speed and at a more advanced level controls fan curve for customization of fan behavior at certain temperature thresholds.
  • VRAM Tuning: Allows you to access controls for memory frequency tuning.
  • Power Tuning: Allows you to access controls for power graphics power limit.

For those old enough to remember the original Resident Evil 2 when it first came out in 1998, you’ll remember being spooked by the horror-filled world of Leon, Claire and Racoon City. That visceral experience achieved from great storytelling coupled with outstanding visual and sound effects, earned Resident Evil 2 high accolades and the game flew off the shelves, cementing it as one of the best game titles in history.

 

Fast forward 20 years to present day, and you’ll find that Capcom has just released the new reimagining of that same cult classic, recapturing that raw, edge-of-your-seat excitement people had with the original game. If you’re new to the franchise, prepare to enter a dark world of monsters and zombies where you and your team will be fighting for mere survival. If you happen to have played the original, let me tell you this – if you had nightmares playing that game when you were young, be prepared for those nightmares to come back after you’ve played this version.
