The gaming landscape is continuously evolving, but one thing that has remained the same over the years is a quest to be a part of the gaming community. Though PC gaming was mostly a solitary activity, physical communities began to form in an attempt to bring like-minded enthusiasts together. Gamers have been coming together even before the rise of social media giants like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. They gathered in a dimly lit room to engage in a battle for supremacy with in person LAN parties and forged lifelong relationships simply because there was a shared love for one thing – unadulterated passion for gaming.

Largely thanks to the rise of social media, gaming has continued to evolve to be an activity where gamers are a part of the community and part of a fan base – and the need to be connected, to share greatest moments, to discuss game strategies and communicate with each other.

In order to connect gamers seamlessly, performance impact to the game play while recording and streaming needs to be negligible, access to the tools need to be simple, convenient and non-intrusive, and community engagement needs to be natural and intuitive.

Radeon™ Software Adrenalin Edition was engineered to facilitate a community oriented gaming experience, with these principles as a guide.


Radeon™ Overlay, with its seamless presence, provides the ability to record, stream and share gameplay without leaving the game in a more immersive and communal experience.

Radeon™ ReLive screen capture has been optimized for even faster gameplay.


  • At 1080p on highest preset, Radeon™ ReLive gameplay capture gets up to 84% lower FPS impact when compared to Nvidia Shadowplay™ in Rocket® League

With separate microphone audio track recording capabilities, streamers can easily amplify the audio experience of their recorded gameplay before sharing with the community, to ensure they are heard.

To further empower gamers to engage with the community, Radeon™ ReLive’s Chat Integration feature allows users to chat with viewers while streaming, allowing your gameplay to become an interactive space.

The mobile app – AMD Link – is a powerful complement to Radeon Software. AMD Link serves as a ‘second screen’ for monitoring Radeon GPU performance and PC system info, enabling gamers to monitor performance and easily share their gameplay moments from their mobile devices.

Radeon™ Software Adrenalin Edition delivers an immersive, integrated experience for connected gaming communities, allowing gamers to stream, record, share and chat seamlessly.

Bringing the community to you, the gamer.

  1. Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of November 8th, 2017 on the 8GB Radeon RX Vega 56, on a test system comprising of Intel i7 7700X CPU (4.2 GHz), 16GB DDR4-3000 Mhz system memory, and Windows 10 x64. PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. Testing was carried out at the highest preset on Rocket League at 1920x1080. Using Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition, the Radeon RX Vega 56 scored 160.2 FPS and while recording using Radeon ReLive, the Radeon RX Vega 56 scored 159.1 FPS creating a 0.7% FPS overhead. Using GeForce Experience, a Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 scored 136.2 FPS and while recording using Nvidia Shadowplay, the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 scored 130.4 FPS, creating a 4.3% recording overhead. With Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition’s Radeon ReLive gameplay capture overhead when compared with Geforce Experience’s Nvidia Shadowplay gameplay capture overhead, Radeon ReLive has up to 84% (1-(0.7/4.3)) lower FPS overhead while recording Rocket League. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers. RS-199
