Users know how frustrating it can be to play a game, see something they want to adjust, and be forced to alt-tab or exit out to change their settings in the control panel.  Radeon™ Overlay provides gamers the choice to rapidly make graphics changes on-the-fly without leaving the game, so they can quickly get back to playing their favorite title.

Radeon™ Overlay can easily be opened inside their game by using the hotkey, Alt-R, to bring up the overlay panel.  This non-intrusive panel that appears on the right of the screen provides gamers with one-click access to a multitude of settings for their Radeon graphics card. Features like Radeon™ ReLive, Radeon™ Chill, Radeon™ WattMan, and Radeon™ Game Advisor can easily be adjusted from within this overlay panel.

We’ve put together a few simple how-to videos to show you how easy it is to access, adjust and continue gaming with Radeon Overlay.
