Direct integration into games. That means, display important game data like weapons ammo, game messages, events, etc.
Radeon Relive integration. Add the possibility to manage Relive with your device. Start/Stop stremaing/recording, enable/disable microphone...etc.
generic drivers are all that is really needed now, the mini port drivers need to be modified very little as WDDM is comparatively mature
most of the other stuff is value added and not really needed
DirectX is handled differently with Vista and above, back with XP however it was a headache as the drivers had to do a lot more than they do now
API support for various rendering schemes like OpenGL and so on are also handled like DX9 and above with a layer above the WDDM and DXGI interfaces
DXGI came with Windows 7
Updated the links to https after installing a certificate on my site at last:
Here are my top 3 request:
1. AMD to provide a port of Radeon Adrenalin for MacOS.
2. AMD Link to include Radeon Pro Render with render start/stop/time remaining, notification of render error, ability to redistribute render sequence (i.e. from Blender, Unity 3D, Maya) to secondary AMD GPU farm when AMD Link notices AMD GPU suffers catostrophic failure or at risk of failure
3. AMD Link to include Application Settings such as Wattman from Radeon Pro Adrenalin
