Earlier this summer we previewed our upcoming Radeon™ Pro Software Crimson ReLive Edition driver for AMD’s new professional graphics cards based on the next-generation “Vega” GPU architecture, and we are pleased to announce that Radeon Pro Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10 for the Radeon™ Pro WX 9100 and Radeon™ Vega Frontier Edition graphics cards is available to download today.
Radeon Pro Software addresses the needs of both enterprise and professional users with quarterly Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Driver updates and software such as today’s release that supports the latest Radeon Pro “Vega”-based professional graphics products.
Radeon Pro Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10 is designed to bring out the best from our new “Vega”-based Radeon™ Professional Graphics cards, supporting the new Radeon Pro WX 9100 (available now) and bringing new features to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition GPUs.
Work. Swap. Play.
The new optional “Driver Options” feature1 found in Radeon Pro Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10 optimizes the Radeon Pro WX 9100 and Radeon Vega Frontier Edition cards for both game development workflows and gaming by letting you swap from Radeon Pro Software to the latest Radeon™ Software Crimson ReLive Edition for Radeon™ Pro driver (a special version of our Radeon™ Software driver optimized for this feature downloadable from within Radeon™ Pro Settings).
Using “Driver Options”, game developers working with game development tools will be able to take advantage of the rock-solid reliability of Radeon Pro Software, then seamlessly swap to one of two installed Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition for Radeon Pro drivers to playtest and optimize the gaming experience. Swapping back is just a couple of clicks, allowing for rapid switching between drivers for faster iteration during game development workflows.
Of course, as the old saying goes, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy (or Jill a dull girl) so professionals will also be able to take advantage of this feature to unwind with their favorite game on the same system they were working on. With “Driver Options” enabling the use of the latest Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition for Radeon Pro driver, many of the gaming technologies of Radeon Software2 will also be available for the Radeon Pro WX 9100 and Radeon Vega Frontier Edition cards.

Radeon™ Pro Graphics Security
The Radeon Pro WX 9100 and Radeon Vega Frontier Edition cards take a holistic approach to security with a dedicated AMD Secure Processor built into the silicon that works with Radeon Pro Software to facilitate all-day security. The onboard AMD Secure Processor performs boot and firmware validation, works in tandem with Radeon Pro Software and Microsoft® Device Guard to help thwart malicious attacks, and during shutdown, the AMD Secure Processor continues securing graphics bound IP.
