Re: AMD Link: What do you want to see in future versions?

I personally don't use AMD link but I do use the Hot Key to see performance monitoring overlay and these are what I absolutely need to have changed.

#1: I would really like if on wattman performance monitoring you would add the ability to show in the overlay CPU usage, CPU Clock, Cpu temperature.

#2: I would also like to see a change in the ability to change overlay color, transparency and layout: I,E, make it more transparent and change the individual colors for each graph I.E. cpu temp in blue font, gpu temp in red font. ect.

#3: Also it would be nice to see GPU Fan speed % vs RPM number as that doesn't help me get an easy idea of how much faster the fans could be running.

Re: AMD Link: What do you want to see in future versions?

That's not just an issue with your card same issue however probably not as bad as yours, on the RX580 8GB I neeeeddd better fan control I don't like that wattman thinks 75C is perfectly fine for my card. I also have the fans cranked up in the watt man setting and it just ignores that and ignores that I told it 70C is max and target is 55c something I can easily achieve in other software.

If this is in regards to OpenCL coding or programming, here is AMD OpenCL Forum: OpenCL .

You can post your question there. If you have any problems with access post back.

Re: AMD Link: What do you want to see in future versions?

Some feedback based on using the AMD Link App on Windows 10 64bit with latest Adrenalin Driver 18.71.

(1). Multiiple Adrenalin Driver crashes or restarts caused having to reconnect the AMD Link App many times.

(2). Reconnecting takes too long even using tthe QR code. It takes 6 presses just to get to the point to scan the QR code.
(3). Please make some way to turn off the help information about scanning the QR Code so it reduces the number of clicks needed.

(4). I note that the Home button -> App Settings lists memory  of the the last connected PC's. this means you avoid having to rescan QR Code or worse enter IP address info. However if I was monitoring FPS with the AMD Link App and AMD Adrenalin crashes or restarts, it still takes 4 clicks in the GUI to check the AMD Link Server is still on and another 6 clicks to go from FPS monitor to the last connected PC and back again to FPS monitor. Some way to quickly reconnect to the last PC automatically within say 5-10 minutes of loss of connection would be much better.

(5). The App buttons used to select App function such as Home or News Feed, or Current Performance or Wallpapers or Relive Gallery are too close to the return/exit App symbol  at the bottom RHS of Galaxy S8. If you hit that by mistake it exits the AMD Link App and you get disconnected. I would much prefer the ability to move that menu further away from the bottom of the phone screen.

(6). Why does the App Start at Connect A new PC -> Skip -> Wallpapers rather than Home? If it started at Home I would just directly click on and connect a PC from the list of previously connected PC's.

There are some aspects of the App that I like but really the major root cause problem and fix needed is to stop the AMD Adrenalin Driver crashing out or restarting. For example I turn crossfire off, it restarts the AMD Adrenalin GUI and drops the connection to AMD Link.

If you cannot make the Adrenalin Driver more stable then AMD Link is very frustrating to use. So an alternative is fix the Radeon Overlay and Radeon Perfomance Monitor so that it consistently works. I often find that hitting ALT R does nothing, the overlay does not show up at all. Sometimes after hitting ALT R a number of times the Overlay simply stops working. Same with the key combinations for Performance Overlay.

Bye.

Re: AMD Link: What do you want to see in future versions?


Now for some positive feedback about the AMD Link App.

I use some screenshots from runing BF1 4K Ultra (graphics settings maxed out) on DX12 with R9 FuryX mGPU with R9 Nano.

I had been testing BF1 at this resolution for 1 hour, and the room ambient was ~ 35'C due to heatwave here.
The FuryX is running hot (65'C) and the R9 Nano was running sub 1050MHz (throttling).

The R9 FuryX is GPU 0, the R9 Nano is GPU 1.


(1). I found this screen very useful. Nice to have all the information on separate screen to main monitor. I was able top monitor both GPU at once.
Monitoring both GPU at once is not yet possible in nthe Performance Overlay on the PC Screen.

It would be useful to be able to resize/rearrange teh ICONs but overall I was pretty happy with this.

Re: AMD Link: What do you want to see in future versions?

Hi

This screen was also useful.
Not bad 68 FPS average on BF1 at 4k Ultra (maxed out) graphics settings.

I like the fact taht the background color changes if FPS drops too much or stays Green if FPS is good.

Re: AMD Link: What do you want to see in future versions?

Hi,

I would like the follwoing improved w.r.t. monitoring MultiGPU metrics.
If AMD Link connection is dropped I then reconnect and I have to click the checkerboxes for every single metric.
I would like to be able to store the metrics I want to monitor if possibe so I save time if I have to restart the App.

Re: AMD Link: What do you want to see in future versions?

I note that the App Settings menu remembers the PC I have linked to so I do not have to keep scanning the QR code.

This is a good feature but I think the App should start directly at the home page so the user just has to click a known, previously connected  PC.

The Add a PC menu is below that anyhow...

At the moment whan I restart the App it takes me to  Add a new PC, which I then skip, then it takes me to some AMD Wallpappers.
